Archer 1200 Mobile Barrier

The Archer 1200 Barrier is unanchored and "Drop and Stop". Made of 100% American steel and is the strongest mobile steel barrier in the world. The Archer 1200 Barrier is the barrier of choice for Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM). The Archer 1200 Barrier is rapidly deployable in sets of 8 in under 10 minutes. The Archer 1200 Barrier solution allows for pedestrian access and emergency vehicle access for every deployment option. The Archer 1200 Barrier is not a bollard which is permanently fixed.

REVIEWS

Reviews

"It is no longer enough to set out orange cones, concrete barriers and water barriers as they have no capacity to stop vehicle encroachment. We need a solution built for the problem and demonstrated to protect lives." Bret Schanzenbach, Carlsbad Chamber CEO.

"With the assistance of MERIDIAN's Archer 1200 Barriers, the Arvada Police Department is able to think about the community's safety so the people don't have to." Dave Snelling, Arvada Detective.

"By having MERIDIAN barriers at every key point around the city we were able to quickly and effectively close down vehicle traffic." Mike Estanol, Martinez Police Department Lieutenant.

"We set out to make the voting locations as safe as possible and the MERIDIAN Barriers were absolutely the right choice." Brian Peterson, Jacksonville Assistant Fire Chief.

"We were pleasantly surprised how business for both lunch and dinner picked up once the barriers went in. Now that we have seen this be successful I would like to see the City of Pasadena make it permanent or semi-permanent. Initially, I was skeptical because of the loss of street parking, but it has worked really well." Armen Shirvanian, Owner of Mi Piace in Pasadena.

"This isn't something specific to us, the entire event industry is taking a bigger look at crowd protection. We all want our guests to enjoy the event without having to worry about their safety. With the MERIDIAN solution in place, it gives us peace of mind." Ronald Delp, 5D Shield Director of Events.
