Vehicle Barrier Systems

Access Control and Perimeter Security



NSI Vehicle Access Control Products

Nationwide Structures offers a diverse line of products providing many cost effective means for controlling vehicle access.

Ranging from simple Drop Arm Gates for access control, to net based automatic energy absorbing systems that can be used for multiple lane access points or daisy-chained together for perimeter security around large areas such as runways, warehousing, docks, manufacturing, or other facilities.

Kit Based Vehicle Barriers (KBVB) are designed for quick setup, teardown, and re-location providing a truly portable solution for temporary entry control needs. KBVB's utilize on site concrete Jersey barries for ballast, only requiring that the gate assembley (single pallet) be re-located when establishing or relocating an access control point.
