MARBLE FALLS, Texas, Dec. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gibraltar, a leading manufacturer of anti-ram vehicle barriers used across the globe, has announced that it has received awards for multiple international projects.
Gibraltar anti-vehicle barriers were recently selected for use on several projects in Saudi Arabia. Gibraltar's barriers are being acquired for 360-degree anti-ram security with approximately 6,200 meters of G-FORCE Combination Anti-Ram Fence, 14 ea. G-2000 Electric Wedge Barriers, and 800+ anti-ram bollards. All barriers selected for the project were crash certified by an independent certified testing laboratory to ASTM F2656-07 M50 P1. Gibraltar is also providing the hydraulic power units (HPUs) and control panels for the active barriers.
"We have built some great relationships in the Saudi Arabian market and are beginning to see the fruits of those relationships. Gibraltar is very excited to provide products that keep people safe from vehicular attack," says Jim Castello, President for Gibraltar Material Distribution.
Gibraltar has been successful in bidding the perimeter fence portions of these projects due to new technology they utilize in their fence systems versus traditional cable systems. Gibraltar has developed all steel beam-based anti-ram fence systems to help lower installation costs (both material and time) to the installer and ultimately to the end users. There are only a handful of parts between the G-FORCE family of anti-ram fences and many can be utilized and interchanged on each system. The systems are like an erector's set in that you put the barrier together and connect your components with each beam connecting with a single pin and bolt versus the hardware needed with traditional cable barriers. The installation labor/time needed to install the G-FORCE systems are estimated at 50-60% less than the traditional cable systems in the market. The other option which makes the G-FORCE series of barriers unique is that there are 12" shallow foundation options certified to ASTM F2656-07 M50 P1.
Gibraltar offers five different crash certified anti-ram fence systems known as their G-FORCE Series. Also offered are crash certified bollards, wedge barriers, crash gates, portable barriers, and surface mount barriers.
