Entrances/exits should be kept to the minimum consistent with the operational requirement. Entrances and exits are security vulnerabilities and therefore the number of vehicles entering the site, and especially those with permitted access to the site’s must be controlled.
It has been a practice by some organization to install barriers without consideration of the ever changing security threat. Most of the barrier chosen has been based on the driver safety whereby the barrier is designed to break, or detach, upon contact with a vehicle. In the fight against terrorism some the preferred option should be a barrier which will resist vehicle impact and provide a degree of stopping power.
At FEDAN we conduct Gate Security Survey, Security Risk Analysis (SRA) so as to design the best Anti-Terror Vehicle Control Barriers through Design Basis Threat (DBT) approach in order to recommend the best anti-ram barriers either rising remotely controlled or fixed KERBS or/and BOLLARDS.
