HydraWedge SM50
2016 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Awards Winner, Hysecurity's HydraWedge SM50, was also recognized as 2016 ISC-West New Product Showcase Category

HydraWedge SM50, a next generation, crash-tested anti-terrorist wedge, defends high security sites worldwide with proven reliability and unparalleled performance.

This high-cycle, shallow mount vehicle wedge barrier boasts the toughest domestic and international Crash Certifications. HydraWedge SM50 provides high performance and uninterrupted security at a fraction of competitive system installation and maintenance expense.

Combined with HyNet, it’s a formidable access control point security-breach detection system that informs security responders of potential and actual ACP perimeter breach conditions, providing them with the necessary intel to respond appropriate to the level of threat.

The perimeters of High Security sites are the first line of defense against dangerous and potentially devastating intrusion. The Department of Homeland sets guidelines for critical infrastructure and key asset perimeter security upgrades, including aviation, petrochemical, utilities, the electrical grid and many others.

This oversight continues to spawn perimeter security hardening through the addition of perimeter-breach detection systems and crash tested gates, bollards, barrier arms, wedges and fence lines.

HydraWedge SM50 (Shallow Mount, M50 crash tested) hardens ACPs against a 50,000 lb. truck racing at 50 mph with an explosive payload. It passed three crash tests with zero penetration including domestic ASTM F2656, international IWA, and PAS 68. No other anti-terrorist crash product has passed all three tests.

HySecurity-insert-2But HydraWedge SM50, like all HySecurity crash and high security gate operators, not only stops intruding vehicles, it detects potential and actual ACP breach conditions and alerts security responders in real time, before or during a security breach. No other crash product integrates this powerfully with an enterprise security platform.

Additionally, HydraWedge SM50 is high engineered. It can be installed in two days. It’s shallow mount with a 12″ foundation, only 9 inches of which is reinforced concrete. It will effortlessly cycle thousands of times per day without fail, turning it into a traffic control AND anti-terrorist vehicle barrier. Almost no wedges will suffer this kind of high cycle and are relegated to security actuation using EFO.

This is a very reliable machine. It’s hydraulics and controls are installed at hundreds of thousands of high security sites in HySecurity hydraulic slide, swing, vertical lift and barrier arm operators. These lead the industry in low maintenance, long life. HydraWedge SM50 hydraulics and controls come with an unmatched 5 year warranty, and much more.
