PPGs American partner could achieve the second prestigious security award with the elkosta Wedge II.
Government Security News (GSN) announced that the wedge barrier won the “Best Fencing, Gates, & Barriers” award in the perimeter protection category of their Airport, Seaport, & Border program.
GSN is a security magazine with a monthly print edition that serves a BPA-audited circulation of 35.000 qualified recipients in the fields of physical, IT and homeland security. This audience includes federal, state and local officials, as well as integrators, contractors and suppliers who are similarly involved in homeland security. This time it is the 7th year of saluting the top leaders in new technologies and innovative security strategies.
“This is a highly targeted program,” said lead judge Chuck Brooks, “dealing with very serious national and international threats in land, sea and air that are in the news every day. The vendor companies and government agencies working in Airport, Seaport, Rail and Border security and participating in this program are cutting edge leaders both nationally and internationally.”
PPG´s distributor equipped the elkosta Wedge II with their own self-contained, proven and ultra-reliable control and hydraulic system in accordance with all relevant UL safety and testing regulations for the USA. This combination is perfectly tailored for the US market.
Furthermore, it perfectly matches the perimeter protection demands of international airports, ports, borders, government agencies, military, petrochemical, server farms, and utilities. Elkosta`s pioneering wedge barrier has passed not one, but three crash certifications! It the first of its kind to be crash-tested as per the new ASTM F2656/F2656M–15 standard.
Moreover, it is the only product on the high security market which has successfully proven its impact resistance in compliance with all three major and internationally renowned standards, i.e. IWA 14-1, PAS 68 and ASTM F2656. Last but not least it´s the only one of its kind outside the USA which has been crash-tested in minimum and maximum width configurations, thereby in turn validating the assumed impact resistance for all intermediate sizes.
