Flexible Design

The Sloan Cable Barrier system has pre-engineered cable placement and a hidden anchoring method that prevents potential attackers from disabling the fence. By utilizing a single anchor post at every corner, this minimalistic design makes the barrier compatible with IDS platforms and reduces the overall footprint of the security zone. This is an excellent choice for users who are looking to maximize their security zone yet maintain a small footprint at the same time.

Cable Barriers FAQs

Why are Crash-Rated Vehicle Barrier controls so difficult to order?


Controls are complex as they include programming the sequence of operations, impact multiple pieces of equipment including safety sensors, obstruction loops, vehicle barriers, integrated gates, traffic arms, signal lights, warning systems and other aspects of the barrier systems.

Why are Crash-Rated Vehicle Barriers and Crash-Engineered Barriers important?


Very important question! Security barriers are life safety equipment that should be installed by a contractor with at least 5 installations of similar equipment already completed. Every site is different and barrier manufacturers may not be able to anticipate challenges that will occur if you use their barrier. Manufacturers generally have one location and a few technicians that provide support worldwide. At any given moment, barrier manufacturers have a difficult time responding quickly to service issues. Barrier manufacturers provide commissioning support which you pay for by the daily rate typically. Barrier installations are complex and issues come up during the layout, off-loading, assembly, excavation, installation, rebar installation, conduit installation, concrete pour, assembly and other stages along the way. Sloan provides services from the off-loading of equipment through installation and commissioning and can take care of any issues that occur along the way.

What are Crash-Engineered Barriers?


Barriers which have been engineered by a particular entity to stop the attack of a particular vehicle traveling at a certain speed within a strict set of guidelines. No field testing has been performed on these barriers however. These barriers are less favorable and should only be utilized when there is no equivalent Standard or Modified Crash-Rated Barrier available.

What are Modified Crash-Rated Barriers?


Crash-Rated Barriers which need to be changed in some minor way to fit a particular site’s characteristics. The changes to the barriers should be carefully analyzed to ensure that the barrier’s effectiveness will not be affected by the changes.

What are Standard Crash-Rated Barriers?


Barriers which have been certified by a rating agency as having passed a full field crash test where a particular barrier is certified to stop the attack of a particular vehicle traveling at a certain speed within a strict set of guidelines. This rating does not serve as a guarantee but only as evidence of capabilities.
