ATCRB-12 Crash Rated Beam (U.S. DOS K12)

The ATCRB-12 crash rated beam features an articulating drop arm, the ability to clear openings up to 40′, and is ASTM F2656-07 M50 P2 certified (equivalent to Department of State K12). The unusually large clear opening provided by this K12 crash beam boasts a breakthrough in vehicle crash testing. This combined with its ability to operate continuously or remain either deployed or retracted indefinitely regardless of local weather conditions presents perimeter security designers with an exciting new option for preventing vehicle intrusions. Finally, multiple drive lanes can be safely closed down with complete 15,000lb 50mph vehicle barrier protections without requiring huge adjacent recess area to store the barrier while not in operation.

This unit was designed using the latest technology in parts and assembly including the use of engineered cables, high tensile, modified alloy shafts, and details such as self-aligning bearings.

The Drive Units are designed to operate from 230/240v single phase or 208/230 three-phase 60 Hz; 50 Hertz is available. The Power Unit is mounted directly to the stanchion completely self-contained. Cabinet construction is of 14 gauge steel and is rated to NEMA 3R. The outer cabinet contains all hydraulic components including a properly sized oil tank, up speed control valve, down speed control valve, manual release down valve, pump, manifold, connection hoses and fittings.

TYM-ATCRB-12 is delivered painted black (buttresses) with a three-part epoxy paint process: First mechanical and then chemical cleaning followed by a high- density zinc primer application and completed with 2-part epoxy paint for corrosion resistance. Other colors available, contact manufacturer for details. The beam shall be powder coated white and striped with reflective red and white safety tape to increase visibility.
