Kontek’s VK8 barrier system furnishes crash protection up to and including a 20,000 lb. vehicle at 50 mph.
Kontek will design the barrier system to include all transition barriers and is capable of providing a turnkey installation (optional) across any surface or terrain.
K-ratings play a pivotal role in indicating the level of protection a barrier offers against vehicular impact. The K-rating system, recognized globally, provides a standardized way to quantify a barrier's ability to withstand specific vehicular impact speeds and weights, thus highlighting its security strength.
The K-ratings recognized by the Department of Defense (DOD) are as follows:
These ratings are assigned based on the speed and weight of the impacting vehicle, with higher ratings indicating a barrier's increased ability to thwart potentially devastating vehicle-borne attacks. Kontek's Modular Blast Barrier and Anti-Crash Vehicle Barrier are rated at K12+ with the ability to withstand a 20,000-lb. vehicle traveling at 50 mph.
The K12+ rating of the MBB and VK8 underscores their exceptional strength and resilience, showcasing their capability to repel formidable forces and safeguard against a wide range of vehicular threats. In the spectrum of K-ratings, K12 represents barriers that provide the highest level of protection, signifying its proficiency in countering even determined vehicular assault attempts.
