Anti-Ram Vehicle Barriers

G-2000 M50 P1 Wedge Barrier

Electro-Mechanical or Hydraulic Options

Patent Pending

The Gibraltar M50 P1 Wedge Barrier is a shallow foundation wedge barrier that carries M50 P1 certification tested to ASTM F2656-07.  The barrier not only captured the initial test vehicle to a negative penetration (-1.10 meters), but captured a second M50 vehicle within the 1 meter allowance for a P1 certification at <1 meter (.708 meters).

The Gibraltar M50 P1 Wedge Barrier meets the vehicle barrier standards set by the Department of State (DoS) and Department of Defense (DoD). Gibraltar’s M50 P1 Wedge Barrier is published on the DoD Anti-Ram Vehicle Barrier List in widths of 8 ft. to 14.5 ft.

The Gibraltar M50 P1 Wedge Barrier is the most reliable and maintenance free electro-mechanical wedge barrier on the market. The wedge barrier has no springs or assists to deploy the barrier under normal or EFO operations. The electro-mechanical version has also undergone a complete submersion test and performed over 1,200 cycles completely submerged. Current cycle testing is ongoing on the electro-mechanical components and has surpassed 500,000 complete up/down cycles and counting, with no parts replacement of any kind.

Unlike other barriers in the market place, vehicles traverse over concrete on the Gibraltar M50 P1 Wedge Barrier. This allows the barrier to handle higher axle loads and also have less wear on items due to vehicle stress on a barrier that has steel plates.

The barrier comes standard with bi-directional flashing LED lights, eliminating the need for expensive and costly in-road lighting. There are also no chains connecting the blocking fingers to the foundation. This allows the Gibraltar M50 P1 Wedge Barrier to be mounted on all slope angles with no fear of chains jamming under the barrier.

Our barrier is offered in a true Hot-Dip Galvanizing to ASTM A123 or paint coating of the fingers to the client’s color specification.

Barriers are available from 8' to 14'-6" wide and can be used in configurations to provide protection to just about any custom clear opening width the customer is protecting.

Snow plows are no issue as the wedge barrier is flush mount to the roadway surface.
