Traditional chain link and ornamental fences are not designed to thwart vehicle attacks. Highway cable barrier systems are engineered primarily to withstand a glancing impact. The XL-501 offers crash-test certified, truck-stopping strength for a head-on impact from a vehicle traveling perpendicular to the line of the fence.
Whether used as a stand-alone system or in conjunction with new or existing anti-pedestrian fencing, the Ross XL-501 is a smart solution for adding anti-ram level protection to the perimeters of high-risk facilities such as data centers, refineries, chemical plants, utility stations, military bases, and airports.
Ross/BRC Post and Beam Anti-Ram Fence uses a single, clear-span tubular beam with vertical posts. It's engineered to reduce material and installation costs by eliminating the need for intermediate posts, foundations and multiple runs of wire rope. The horizontal beams can be set quickly and easily with a backhoe, digger derrick truck, excavator, skid loader or boom truck.
Post hardware is limited to a single nut and bolt and shim plates. Post foundations, are also designed to reduce costs. And because the rebar is integrated directly with the posts and provided by BRC, contractors don't have to provide or construct separate rebar cages for the foundations. As a result, you get a secure fence that is aesthetically pleasing, visibly imposing and cost effective. And given that most facility perimeters are substantial in size, the savings can be significant.
