Product overview

The road blocker is ideal as a robust alternative to a rising arm barrier and is available in widths up to 4m (increments of 500mm), providing physical vehicle control and security for an establishment.

The road blocker is constructed from heavy welded steel section to provide sufficient strength to exceed British axle load and complies with BS6571 part 4.

The road blocker is operated by a hydraulic ram with the power unit (HPU) positioned locally within an externally rated cabinet.

It comes with a push-button hold to run control as standard, however it can be customised to interface with a wide range of access control equipment to suit specific customer requirements.

This is a specialist 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. For safety reasons pedestrians, cyclists and motorcycles should not to use a blocker controlled roadway.
