The Leader in Mobile Vehicle Barrier Solutions



Why MERIDIAN?

Barrier Mobility

The Archer 1200 Barrier is 700 lbs of American Steel and is moved using the Archer Hauler which allows for the fastest deployment of mobile vehicle barriers in the world. So easily deployable, anyone can move the vehicle barriers using the Archer Hauler. The drop and stop barriers are perfect for any event security.

Versatile Custom Solutions

All MERIDIAN products can be customized with a client's color preference and logos, so that when they are deployed they meet the visual requirements of a community. The custom colors also come in a range of safety colors, ensuring that high visibility is always at the forefront. The safety colors meet all the requirements for cities, law enforcement, public works and traffic engineering.

Crash Test Certifications

The Archer 1200 Barrier is certified as the strongest mobile vehicle barrier in the world. The certifications meet all of the necessary requirements for vehicle-ramming attacks. MERIDIAN holds certifications with the Department of Homeland Security "SAFETY Act", ASTM, IWA-14, PAS 68, and DOD. The Archer Beam Gate carries a number of engineered rated certifications for multiple deployment options.

Multiple Deployment Options

The MERIDIAN products are modular by design and are deployed under the certified crash test certifications. There are also a wide variety of options from walls of steel barriers bolted together, to serpentine or chicane options. The Archer Safety Barriers are used to ensure that perimeters are controlled to lower speeds, ensuring event security is at the highest level. Vehicle Safety Mitigation Plans (VSMP) are used to make sure deployment options meet the various certifications. These plans are prepared by the company's fully certified and trained safety specialists.

Made in America

All MERIDIAN products are 100% made in the U.S.A., using all American parts and components. The Archer Barriers, Beam Gate and Trailers are made from 100% U.S. steel. MERIDIAN's factories are 100% American owned and meet all of the ISO standards that reflect the certifications from the Department of Homeland Security's SAFETY Act.

Why the Archer-Guard?

Mobile Deployment

The Archer-Guard is a one-person deployment that can be deployed on roadways and tight positions to protect workers in construction zones, in overhead work, maintenance work, flaggers and manholes. When truck mounted attenuators are too big the Archer-Guard is the perfect solution. Due to the mobility of the Archer-Guard the system can be moved easily on rolling construction operations as no heavy equipment of forklifts or drivers are required once deployed in the field.

Speed of Deployment

When safety counts you need to be able to deploy within minutes and move the equipment to the next job. The Archer-Guard can be deployed in less than 5 minutes by one person and then moved from field to location in around three and half minutes. When work conditions change one can work inside a taper at the front of a taper, or in front of equipment. Workers remain protected knowing they are not dependent on trucks and drivers to be there to move equipment to the next location.

Crash Test Certifications

The history of the Archer-Guard is borne from the event world where Meridian has been deploying barriers to prevent people, communities, and people from being injured. The rigorous test certifications have been essential with the Archer barriers having ASTM, IWA-14, PAS 68 and MASH certifications. The ultimate certification is The SAFETY Act from the Department of Homeland Security.

Deployment guidelines

The Archer-Guard comes with a full set of deployment options that ensure the set up is compliant with transportation guidelines. The MASH tests for TL1, TL2 in both 40 and 41 show the stopping distances and how best to deploy the system for worker zone protection. The Archer-Guard is a 100% Made in America product complying with the ISO standards.
