The road blocker comes with a push-button control as standard, however it can be customised to interface with a wide range of access control equipment to suit specific customer requirements (available as options).

The blocker is also available as an optional HCIS Road Blocker specifically designed to comply with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia’s (KSA) Ministry of Interior, HCIS Security Directives Sec 06 4.3.3 for crash barriers.

This is a specialist high security product and is designed for use with vehicles only and a full site risk assessment must be carried out at design stage to ensure that all relevant safety systems are included. Where the blockers control point is remote from the installation, we strongly recommend the fitting of a recordable CCTV system.
