Crash-Rated Barriers

Perimeter Security Fences

Sloan's expert team specializes in the design and installation of a wide range of Security Fences, including crash-rated, anti-climb and anti-cut options.

Anti-Cut Fence

Anti-Cut Fence

Anti-Cut Fences are superior to chainlink for many reasons, but resisting cuts is the main benefit. These types of fences are ideal for high-security facilities like data centers, prisons, energy facilities, and other secure government facilities.

• 8', 10', and Custom Heights Available
• Heavy-Gauge Mesh and Small Mesh Openings
• Anti-Corrosion Coatings

Anti-Climb Fence

Anti-Climb Fence

Anti-Climb Fences help delay and deter attacks or breaches of a perimeter. The anti-scale welded wire mesh makes it very difficult to get a foothold and is constructed with heavy gauge vinyl-coated steel wire for maximum strength, durability, and long life.

• 8', 10', and Custom Heights Available
• Heavy-Gauge Mesh and Small Mesh Openings
• Anti-Corrosion Coatings


Ballistic-Rated Fence

Ballistic-Rated Fence

Ballistic-rated steel fencing is built with reinforced steel materials that incorporate additional layers of protection, like ballistic-resistant fabrics or other specialized materials. These types of security fences are used in high-security settings, including military, power substations, government buildings, and prisons.

• Bullet-Resistant Concrete/Precast
• Passes all global standards
• ASTM Ballistic Standards
• Level 10 UL 752 requirements
• Stop a .50 caliber bullet

Crash-Rated Fence

Crash-Rated Fence

Crash-Rated Fence creates an effective visual deterrent backed with heavy steel components that have been tested and certified by the Department of Defense. It gives an anti-terrorism level of protection and is much different from traditional chain link or architectural mesh fence alternatives.

• K4, K8 and K12 Rated Designs
• 4', 6', 8', 10', and Custom Heights Available
• Conduits and Wiring within the Fence System

Prison Fencing

Prison Fencing

Prison Fences can be electrified fences that include razor wire, barbed wire/concertina wire tops that eliminate the ability to climb. These fences often have a small mesh pattern that makes the wall resistant to cutting.

• Anti-Cut Welded Wire Mesh
• Anti-Climb Fence Spikes
• Barbed and Razor Wire

Modular Barrier Fence

Modular Barrier Fence

Sloan Modular Barrier Fences are ideal for long sections of fencing that speeds up installation, without sacrificing protection and durability. These types of fences are useful on along curvy roadways or perimeters of facilities. 

• Anti-Climb Design
• Anti-Cut Welded Wire Mesh
• Efficient Installation (up to 100'/hr)

Security Fences 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 does it take to install a Crash-Rated Vehicle Barrier?

+

We can help you select, procure, design, install, and maintain your vehicle barriers, regardless of your situation and location(s).

There are a tremendous variety of systems currently on the market with new companies and products being introduced constantly.

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.

How do I know what Crash-Rating I should use?

+

Sloan can provide engineered calculations for the maximum potential speed a vehicle can achieve at all points around your facility.

What type of Crash-Rated Vehicle Barrier system do you need?

+

AVB = Active Vehicle Barrier

1. Utilized for active vehicle entrances, sally ports, unmanned entrances


2. Wedges, bollards, sliding, rising or pivoting horizontal beams, integrated into gates etc.


3. Hydraulically, electrically, pneumatically, or manually operated


4. May be surface-mounted, shallow-mounted, or standard depth installation



SVB = Static Vehicle Barrier

1. Utilized for fence lines, permanently closed gate openings, temporarily closed gate openings


2. Cable-type barriers, bollards, berms, trenches, walls, street furniture, vegetation, concrete barriers, guard rails etc.

Are anti-cut fences resistant to cutting tools commonly used by intruders?

+

Yes, anti-cut fences are specifically engineered to resist cutting tools commonly used by intruders, such as bolt cutters or angle grinders. These fences utilize materials and designs that make it extremely difficult for intruders to cut through or breach the fence, enhancing overall perimeter security.

Can high-security fences be installed on uneven or sloped terrain?

+

Yes, high-security fences can be installed on uneven or sloped terrain. Manufacturers offer flexible installation options, including adjustable panels or specialized installation techniques, to accommodate varying site conditions and ensure a secure and seamless fence installation.

What are the benefits of installing a crash-rated fence?

+

Installing a crash-rated fence provides several benefits, including enhanced perimeter security, protection against unauthorized vehicle access, deterrence against ramming attempts, and compliance with security regulations for critical infrastructure sites. These fences are designed to withstand high-impact forces and provide a robust physical barrier against vehicle-borne threats.

Are high-security fences suitable for all environments?

+

High-security fences can be adapted to various environments, including industrial, commercial, and residential settings. However, factors such as climate, terrain, and site conditions should be considered during the design and installation process to ensure optimal performance and longevity of the fence system.
