The Rising Kerb Road Blocker, is the ultimate in preventing access into your site, it provides high security coupled with a very visible deterrent and can be installed in a variety of different applications in use for manned or unmanned sites.
The kerbs are robust and manufactured from thick welded galvanised steel section, with a range of kerbs that can withstand the impact of a large truck been driven into it.
EDS are able to supply and install crash rated rising road blockers in accordance with PAS68 & PAS69.
The Rising Kerb Road Blockers come in a range of widths, designs, and specifications; and with many different control mechanisms. Where the width of your site exceeds the standard sizes of kerbs two units can be installed adjacent to each other, with linked controls to operate simultaneously. Several methods of safety are incorporated into the system as standard.
A state of the art control system monitors the kerb for precise location and has numerous advanced safety features built-in, the control system ensures the kerb operates at optimum levels and rises and falls with smooth operation.
The kerb system can be manufactured and installed with dual attach faces to prevent "jumping" the kerb from either side.
Rising Road Blocker Kerb is operated from either a vehicle sensing device or that of the remote command centre located within the city centre.
The kerb system can be linked to any number of remote systems to control it's operations, such as:
ANPR - Automatic Number Plate Recognition system, where a vehicles registration plate is taken and checked against a database, if verified the kerb lowers to allow access.
Vehicle Tags - Where a tag is attached to specific vehicles, allow access to only authorised vehicle only.
Radio Transmitters - Any number or hand held radio remote controls can be linked to the system.
Access Control System - Proximity card, Photo ID, Biometric Iris or Fingerprint reading technologies can be incorporated into the system.
Tokens - Standard issue tokens or high security token can be incorporated into the system.
Traffic Light Signalling
Traffic light signalling is incorporated into the system to show red or green lights to the driver.
Emergency Back Up
An emergency back up lowering facility is operational during any power failure and is fitted as standard, ensuring that the kerb can be lowered in the event of a power failure, alternatively a UPS power system can be installed to keep the unit operational.
About PAS68, PAS69, DOS K4, K8, K12, Crash Rating:
The American Department of State (DOS) has a continuing requirement to provide vehicle barriers to U.S. Diplomatic and Consular Missions overseas that have been certified to a specific level of anti-ram protection. Prior to DOS certification, vehicle barriers must be tested by an independent crash test facility to meet DOS standards. "K" indicates vehicle speed during crash test; and "L" indicates maximum allowed penetration of the barrier by the vehicle. Any combination of the above may be tested. The test specifies perpendicular barrier impact by a 15,000 lb (6810kg) vehicle.
Certification is based on the following speed (K) and penetration (L) ratings:
K12 = 50 mph (80 kph).
K8 = 40 mph (65 (kph).
K4 = 30 mph (48 kph).
L3 = 3ft. (915 mm) or less.
L2 = 3 ft. to 20 ft (915 mm to 6.1 m).
L1 = 20 ft. to 50 ft. (6.1 m to 15.3 m).
PAS 68 has been prepared to address the needs of organizations who wish to have assurance that vehicle security barriers will provide the level of impact resistance that they seek. Many systems are available that are either promoted or considered suitable for use as vehicle security barriers. As their characteristics differ in both function and form, a comparative means of assessing their performance is required.
PAS 68:2007 specifies a classification system for the performance of vehicle security barriers and their supporting foundations when subjected to a single horizontal impact. In the standards three alternative assessment methods of determining the performance classification of vehicle security barriers are given: [a] The vehicle impact method. [b] The pendulum method (only suitable for testing bollards at lower energy levels). [c] The design method. This PAS identifies impact test tolerances and vehicle performance criteria that need to be met in order to conform to it. Design guidance is provided in PAS 69:2006.
PAS 69 provides guidance on the selection, installation and use of vehicle security barriers to ensure that they are selected and placed as effectively as possible. PAS 69 intended to be used by designers, planners, architects, security managers and facilities managers within the public and private sectors. PAS 69 complements PAS 68:2007 Specification for vehicle security barriers, which describes methods for the classification of various barrier types in terms of their ability to resist dynamic impacts by vehicles.
PAS 69 highlights the issues to be addressed when considering the use of traffic calming and vehicle restraint systems as part of an overall security regime. The topics considered are by no means exhaustive, and the user is encouraged to consider additional questions and responses to cater for specific issues. Vehicle security barriers should not be considered in isolation but as part of an integrated security solution which may include, adjacent perimeter protection, CCTV, alarm monitoring and guard force activity.

EDSUK Surface Mounted Rising Kerb Road Blockers are designed for temporary installation or where services below the location of the Surface Mounted Rising Kerb Road Blockers prevent a full depth Rising Kerb Road Blocker from being installed. The EDSUK Surface Mounted Rising Kerb Road Blockers offer fast deployment and a high level of protection for use in multiple applications.
The EDSUK Surface Mounted Rising Kerb Road Blockers are designed to be easily transportable and offer fast deployment in most terrains, with the hydraulic control system which is attached to the ramp with a separate controller that is simply plugged into the Kerb for quick and easy operation, with push-button control as standard.
The Rising Kerb Road Blockers is constructed at 2mtrs wide and several can be placed together to provide a 4mtrs wide lane, enough for most applications.
EDS can maintain any type of existing system, providing on-site and workshop repairs to any make of systems. With a large stockholding of spare parts we can turn around repairs rapidly.
Regular maintenance is fundamental to ensure your systems operate as effectively as when they were first installed, we are able to provide competitive quotation for maintenance of new and any type of existing system. Download Road Blocker PDF
