Q: A two-ton heavy vehicle travelling at 70km/h rams into a Spider Wire electro-mechanical barrier. How far does it travel before coming to rest?
A: 0 metres.
Spider Wire’s Electro-Mechanical Barrier Systems are impenetrable. Many other barrier systems make this claim. We can actually prove it. As this test graphically demonstrates, when a heavy vehicle travelling at 70km/h hits the Spider Wire barrier, it’s the vehicle that breaks apart upon impact. The barrier remains intact.
But our anti-ram control point system isn’t just one of the most effective solutions in the market. It is also the most cost-efficient. Whereas similar systems work on complicated hydraulics and pneumatics, Spider Wire’s patented electro-mechanical technology ensures maintenance costs are lower than any other barrier system available worldwide.

Spike barriers are designed to puncture a vehicle’s tyres. The problem with this is that even after the tyres have been punctured, the vehicle is still able to travel a significant distance, allowing assailants to either escape or gain access to your facility. Fortunately, Spider Wire’s anti-ram barriers are designed to stop a vehicle completely in its tracks.
