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.

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.

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.

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.
