The Nice/HySecurity StrongArm M50 is an anti-ram barrier designed to stop a small passenger vehicle or a truck from breaching the perimeter of a secured facility. Typical applications include nuclear power plants, embassies, military bases, corrections facilities, airports and shipping ports, hydroelectric and petrochemical plants, law enforcement locations, etc. This video shows the results of a crash barrier test.
The video first shows the typical operation of the crash barrier after listing its features. The video captures details of a test that was performed in 2012 from several different vantage points. The first views show the truck as it travels from right to left. The scene is embellished with an insert from a second camera mounted just behind the driver’s doors. The second camera looks through the rear view mirror’s mounting bracket and captures the intensity of the collision.
Next a camera positioned facing the truck as it hits the barrier further captures the intensity of the destruction. An angle view follows and then a very impressive aerial view from a camera mounted on an overhead boom. At the end, close up video images show the extent of the damage up close.
The truck weighed 15,000 pounds and was traveling at 50 miles per hour. The barrier passed the crash rating test with 1.3 (or 3.3 per the video) meters of penetration. It is crash certified to ASTM F2656-07 M50, P2.
Included in the design are a photo-electric eye, entrapment shield, arming lift, traffic signal, an arm for a passenger vehicle, etc. An optional uninterruptible power supply (UPS) is available.
