We are extremely proud that our Portable Vehicle Barrier offers a simple but highly effective anti-ram barrier that is fast making it a must-have in the anti-terrorism tool box for public and private organizations
Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 02, 2011
Due to high demand, SSI has just released the newest model of the PVB internationally. This product is designed to stop a VBIED or threatening vehicle and protect major sporting events, parades, and enhance perimeter security anywhere in the world. Its design is based on learned practices and all the best features of other barrier products.
“We are extremely proud that our Portable Vehicle Barrier offers a simple but highly effective anti-ram barrier that is fast making it a must-have in the anti-terrorism tool box for public and private organizations,” says Kelli Richardson, project manager for the PVB.
Made in the USA, the PVB requires no electricity or maintenance. An entire road can be blocked in 15 minutes by two men. Modular, with complete scalability and scalable stopping power, the barricade will be used to protect buildings, sporting events, parades and other public gatherings throughout the country.
With a heightened threat level facing the USA, the barrier is a deployable defense barrier that has already been purchased by some of the world’s best known sports event venues. It is also popular with universities in advance of the upcoming football season. The PVB protects infrastructure and more providing all facilities with a solution that does not involve bollards, crash gates or barrier gate arms which are not always practical for temporary needs. The barrier’s modules fold so that they can be easily stored.
The system works by having the energy of the oncoming vehicle dig a stake into the ground which causes the vehicle to be cantilevered upwards and its velocity destroyed. Painted in heavy duty powder coating yellow, the barrier is a very visible sign not to pass through. It can be used with wheels to provide a crowd control solution which offers the best of physical protection systems. Previous modular vehicle barriers were either too flimsy or to difficult to deploy but the PVB, based on SSI’s know-how as the leading Homeland Security training company, is able to provide a secure perimeter and will become a check-list item for physical protection and security at everything from schools and universities, stadiums, and shopping malls to nuclear facilities and military bases.
SSI is the sole source provider of this US made product, which is already being exported. “We are also proud to be manufacturing a Made in USA product and contributing to the economy,” states Richardson. “We could have made an inferior product for vehicle barrier protection but instead we have a quality device at a very, very competitive price. No other venue protection is available at this price.”
