The Difference Between Passive and Active Barriers


Whether you are managing traffic flow or providing security for a government facility, there are many uses for active and passive vehicle barriers. Active and passive vehicle barriers provide safety and security for sites and assets. But what are the differences? 

We’ll examine the different types of active and passive barriers and how to assess which barrier is right for your facility or project.

What Are Active Barriers?

Active barriers are typically used at access control points where individuals or vehicles are checked for credentials to enter. Active barriers have moving parts that allow entry and must provide continuous operation for protecting the facility. Active barriers can be manually operated, electronically operated, or automated

Active barriers must provide continuous operation, and so they have higher maintenance requirements and may require active personnel to operate. 

Benefits of Active Barriers

There are several benefits to active barriers:

  • Regulate entry into a facility 
  • Can be activated to stop breaches
  • Can stop moving vehicle attacks
  • Serve as a deterrent for hostile intent

Types of Active Barriers

The most common types of active barriers include:

  • Gates. This is an operable part of a fence that mounts on wheels or hinges for entry.
  • Traffic control arms. While a common deterrent for passage, these barriers have no stopping power for security.
  • Wedge barriers. These are the steel plates that angle upward to stop a vehicle when activated. Usually, they are flush with the ground for traffic to pass over.
  • Retractable bollards. These bollards are generally left up because they are used in areas with less activity.
  • Crash arm barriers.  These types of arms are reinforced and provide both stopping power and can be used for access control.  
  • Barrier-net systems. Attached to vertical steel supports, these nets can span large openings and are used for perimeter coverage.

Are you looking for an active barrier system for your facility? BBRSS offers the highest quality active barrier systems that can be customized to meet your site’s requirements.

Passive barriers have no moving parts, like a fence.

What Are Passive Barriers?

Passive barriers are barriers that have no moving parts. The barrier must be able to stop or deter threats on their own. Passive barriers absorb energy and transfer the energy to their foundation.

Passive barriers can be individual barriers or part of a more extensive passive barrier system. And passive barriers can be transportable or permanent, depending on the system. 

Benefits of Passive Barriers

There are several benefits to passive barriers:

  • Provide perimeter security
  • Require little to no maintenance once installed
  • Deter attacks and breeches
  • Can be integrated into decorative landscaping and street furniture.  

Types of Passive Barriers

There are two types of passive barriers: fixed barriers and re-deployable barriers.

Fixed Barriers

Fixed barriers are often permanent barriers that can stop moving vehicles. The most common fixed barriers are:

  • Chain-link/Ornamental fences. These fences can be reinforced with high strength cables for a more robust deterrent to stop moving vehicles.
  • Concrete walls. Height, thickness, reinforcement, and foundation depth all contribute to effectiveness.
  • Cable barriers. Plow steel cables anchor between two concrete points for security and are often used with fences.
  • Bollards.  Deep mount or shallow mount bollards provide pedestrian access while deterring and preventing vehicle intrusion.  

Re-deployable Barriers

These barriers are movable passive barriers. Common re-deployable barriers include:

  • Jersey barriers. Non-anchored barriers are effective at creating standoff barriers but won’t stop a ramming vehicle. Median barriers are Jersey barriers.
  • Large planters. If made of concrete, planters improve curb appeal while being effective barriers.
  • Boulders. A natural, difficult barrier. Boulders take significant effort to move.
  • Relocatable Crash Barriers.  These active barriers provide crash rated protection and can be towed or placed into position by a forklift or crane.  Often used in temporary security applications and can be ran from a dedicated power source, battery and solar powered systems.  Portable Barriers provide flexibility in establishing temporary perimeter protection. 

Other Types of Passive Barriers

  • Ditches. When dug at a sufficient depth, width, and steep slope, they are effective against most vehicles.
  • Berms. When properly configured, berms are also an effective natural deterrent.
  • Trees and large bushes. Trees and bushes make great natural barriers that can be in concrete planters or in the ground.

Active Vs. Passive

Whether you choose to use active or passive barriers will depend mainly on your site characteristics, operational constraints, and security level. You’ll want to perform a site assessment that analyses:

  • The site’s physical characteristics such as structures, roads, terrain, perimeter, and landscaping
  • Traffic engineering studies for the area
  • Underground utilities
  • Environmental constraints
  • Planned changes around the facility

Depending on the security level your facility needs, you may also want to perform a security assessment. This assessment will examine:

  • Overall security needs
  • Perceived threats
  • Perceived vulnerabilities
  • Security solutions 

By assessing your site’s needs, you’ll be able to identify barrier requirements, which could be active, passive, or both. Different barriers offer different levels of security with varying crash test ratings. For high-security sites, you’ll want to use a combination of active and passive barriers to protect your facilities.

Which Barrier Is Right for You?

Active and passive barriers are excellent safety and security solutions to protect your assets and facilities. These barriers also manage and regulate traffic flow and protect employees while they work on road projects. Depending on your project or site, you may want to use temporary or permanent barriers that are either active, passive, or both.

BBRSS: How to Integrate into ITS systems


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that driver error causes 90% of fatalities on the road. The NHTSA believes that 50,000 vehicle crashes could be avoided by leveraging Intelligent Transportation System technologies.

Many states in the United States have and will integrate Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in many high-risk areas to improve safety and transportation efficiency. Along with road safety, ITS allows its user to tackle issues such as CO2 emissions, traffic congestion, and high fuel prices.

To integrate into an ITS system, you should follow several steps to create a sustainable and effective ITS. We’ll examine these steps and the challenges of integrating ITS.

What are Intelligent Transportation Systems?

Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) are smart, real-time applications and communication technologies for detecting, analyzing, controlling, and communicating to a transportation control center to improve safety, mobility, and efficiency. 

ITS includes technologies, hardware, and several transportation agencies that work cohesively together as a complete management strategy to address transportation issues and challenges. Ultimately, an effective ITS solution shares information between agencies and reduces redundant jurisdiction spending.

Benefits of ITS

Well-integrated ITS can provide several benefits for relieving transportation challenges:

  • Eases congestion
  • Improves traffic management
  • Minimizes environmental footprint
  • Saves lives
  • Reduces vehicle crashes
  • Reduces CO2 emissions
  • Decreases fuel consumption
  • Saves money for maintenance and operations
  • Reduces the need for road construction

Cameras help communicate real-time information to the ITS systems

How to Integrate ITS systems?

A successful ITS solution must meet requirements on time and within a budget. To do this, transportation agencies must follow a coordinated integration process for implementing ITS.

1. Planning and Funding an ITS Solution

Most ITS technologies are meant to integrate with an existing transportation system.

During the planning phase of integrating ITS, agencies will need to:

  • Identify needed ITS projects
  • Create a project scope
  • Define requirements
  • Create a schedule

Once these variables are identified to create a comprehensive ITS architecture, the agencies can submit for funding.

Identifying ITS Projects

When the local agency examines the current transportation challenges for a specific area, they will assess and identify different ITS projects. These projects can be:

Designing the ITS Architecture

All of these areas need to be addressed and defined for the ITS architecture:

  • Identification of stakeholders, communities, and participating agencies roles and responsibilities
  • Requirements definitions
  • Analysis of alternative system configurations and technology options to meet requirements
  • Procurement options
  • Identification of applicable ITS standards and testing procedures
  • Procedures and resources necessary for operations and management of the system
  • Define environmental impact, processes, and approval
  • Adhere to Americans with Disabilities Act requirements
  • Ensure easements are identified if needed for right of way during any ITS projects

Funding an ITS Project

For assessing costs, the Intelligent Transportation Systems Joint Program Office provides an ITS Costs Database for accurately determining capital, operational, and maintenance costs for implementing different ITS projects. Once budgets and expenses are determined, the agency can submit a Systems Engineering Review Form (SERF) for review and approval.

Integrating hardware, technology and agencies is part of an ITS system

2. SEMP and ITS Implementation

The agency should complete a Systems Engineering Management Plan (SEMP) and Systems Engineering process for each ITS project. When the final SEMP is approved, the agency can implement the ITS projects based on the architecture schedule.

Transportation Operations Center

If not already in place, a transportation operations center needs to be created. This agency will manage and respond to all transportation issues and problems that can’t be handled by the ITS hardware and applications.

The transportation operations center will manage:

  • Central traffic signal control
  • Freeway management
  • Transit & fleet management
  • Electronic toll collection & fare payment
  • Advanced emergency response
  • Regional multi-modal traveler information
  • Satellite-based navigation systems
  • Driver assistance devices

3. Construction

ITS construction applies to physical devices or communication infrastructure that must be physically installed on the roadway. The regulations require state and local agencies to award contracts based on:

  • Competitive bidding.
  • Qualified engineers
  • State-approved procurement procedures

Once contracts have been awarded, the agency can manage and ensure project completion. 

4. Documentation Upon Project Completion

Because the US DOT has the right to access all documentation on federal-aid projects, strict record keeping is essential during ITS integration. Agencies must substantiate all costs. 

During an ITS project, whenever the project adds, subtracts, or modifies elements, information flow, or interfaces, changes must be submitted to verify the ITS architecture. All implementation should be well documented and submitted for review and approval. 

When an integration has followed procedure, the ITS projects should be able to:

  • Seamlessly communicate between public infrastructure and private devices. 
  • Communicate properly without false positives.
  • Provide accurate real-time information to the Transportation Operation Center
  • Automate specific enforcement technologies

Integration Challenges

While ITS seems like a reliable solution, there are some integration challenges to look out for when adopting new ITS technology:

  • Cybersecurity needs to be a top priority when installing ITS technologies that could be threatened by a terrorist attack.
  • Effective data analysis is critical to building a robust ITS architecture.
  • Strong connectivity is essential to real-time communication and efficiency.
  • Integration and coordination between all transportation agencies must be established to create an effective ITS solution.

Some ITS technology relies on communication with drivers using their cell phones or in-vehicle navigation systems, which becomes problematic when many cities and counties have banned cell phone use while driving. The ITS architecture will need an alternative plan for communication in these areas.

Smooth Integration of ITS Technologies is Critical to Success

ITS technologies can improve the safety and efficiency of transportation when integrated in a sustainable, efficient manner. By following the ITS guidelines for integration, your ITS solution will enable better communication and traffic management.

FAAC S450H CBAC 24vdc Hydraulic Swing Gate operator, Swing gate Opener


<<<<Back

THE POWER OF HYDRAULICS AND THE HIGHEST SAFETY WITH A QUICK AND EASY INSTALLATION

The FAAC S450H automated system for swing-leaf gates con­sists of an electrical pump and an hydraulic piston transmitting the leaf movement, assembled in a single block.

The model with hydraulic locking does not require the instal­lation of electric locks and guarantees that the leaf is me­chanically blocked when the motor is not in operation. The model without hydraulic locking always needs one or more electric locks to guarantee that the leaf mechanically locks. The S450H automated systems have been designed and built to automate swing-leaf gates. Avoid any other use, whatsoever.

Fast opening/closing speed: The S450H 24v operator can reach a maximum speed of more than 2.5cm/sec, i.e. more than 2 times of the current (hydraulic or electro-mechanical) operators on the market.

Integrated mechanical stops (opening/closing): Practical add-on opening mechanical stops are standard and can be used when the mechanical stops cannot be installed in the ground.

• Condominium/residential and light commercial application, suitable for leafs up to 14 ft. (4.3 meters)
• High closing/opening speed (1 in./s) (2.5 cm/s)
• Very accurate anti-crushing and inversion on obstacles functions thanks to the integrated encoder
• Flexible and easy to install thanks to the mufti-position adjustable brackets and the long stroke (12 1/4 in.) (311 mm)
• Gate speed and force can be adjusted through the electronic control board
• New SB system (no hydraulic locking version) with ti-drive valves (FAAC patented): easier manual leaf movement
• Integrated opening/closing mechanical stops included in the operator Suits a wide range of installations thanks to the mufti-position adjustable brackets.
The encoder, integrated on the rear attachment, allows to perfectly control the operator in any position. Moreover, it ensures a very high accuracy in obstacle detection and a quick inversion, according to the UL safety requirements.
The Hybrid technology perfectly combines the advantages of both
hydraulic and 24V technologies. This means robustness, high performances, reliability, speed control and anti-crushing safety (inversion on obstacles).

Active Warning Gates for use in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS)


In 2018, over 4.5 million medically consulted injuries occurred on US roadways.  While this number is high, the death and injury rate is declining because Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) improve how we manage traffic and transportation.

ITS provide communication and technology applications to improve our transportation system. ITS technology saves lives, reduces congestion, and improves the environmental sustainability of our transportation system.

Active warning gates communicate with ITS to prevent accidents on roads, bridges, and train crossing. Often drivers are injured because they disregarded safety measures such as warning gates and traffic signals. As ITS technology improves, active warning gates will be able to communicate and regulate safer traffic.

What are Active Warning Gates?

Active warning gates are traffic management systems that control traffic flow for:

Made from hot-dipped galvanized steel, warning gates are activated from sensors and technology to keep drivers safe and help moderate traffic flow. Active warning gate bars can span up to fifty feet and cover multiple lanes of traffic.

There are two types of warning gates: vertical or horizontal. Each has its advantages:

Vertical Warning Gates

The most common type of warning gate, a vertical gate remains in an upright position until the gate is needed to signal a train, bridge, or dangerous road condition by lowering their arm to stop vehicles from passing. Vertical warning gates require less space for opening and closing and can lower across several lanes of traffic.

Horizontal Warning Gates

A horizontal warning gate arm swings open like a door. These gates are ideal for traffic control and access control for a facility.  Available in a variety of sizes, horizontal warning gates can be used to cover multiple traffic lanes.  

Not sure which warning gate is right for your facility, road, or asset? Request a free consultation from BBRSS Roadway for expert advice and design.

 Bridges need Active Warning Gates using Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) to regulate traffic.

How Do Active Warning Gates Communicate with ITS?

ITS can send real-time information about traffic to close or open the active warning gate when it is safe to pass. The dynamic warning gate will send visual and audible signs to stop or restart traffic flow.

When the information is accurate, vehicles and pedestrians are more likely to obey the traffic lights and gates. One of the biggest reasons people are injured is that they disregard traffic signals and warning gates and go around. By providing more accurate information, the ITS will make the warning gate more effective and reliable.

Benefits of Active Warning Gates

When warning gates signal and work in a predictable, reliable, and accurate manner, the warning gates will:

Provide traffic control.

Warning gates regulate traffic for HOV or reversible lanes by providing organized traffic management. They also restrict how many vehicles can cross bridges and train tracks. By communicating with the ITS, they can accurately moderate traffic.

Increase the security of the bridge, train, or other assets.

Warning gates provide security for bridges, trains, and facilities by restricting entry based on set conditions. ITS can also pass real-time information to the warning gate by monitoring traffic and transportation conditions. Warning gates can also be customized to withstand vehicle impact.

Save lives.

By accurately warning vehicles and pedestrians of upcoming dangerous conditions, people are more like to obey and not put themselves in compromising situations. While only 100 people die each year from trains, this number is declining because ITS provides better protection.

Work reliably for generations.

Because warning gates are made of high-quality materials, they can accurately operate for decades. This helps with environmental sustainability because the gates do not need to be replaced very often. Active warning gates are energy efficient and require minimal maintenance.

Prevent vehicles from driving in hazardous weather conditions.

Warning gates can close roads when weather conditions become too dangerous on the road. States implement warning gates on roads prone to black ice, flooding, high winds, or heavy snow. Utilizing accurate ITS information about weather conditions, the warning gate can keep vehicles safe.

Active Warning Gates use Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) for accurate weather conditions.

How do Warning Gates Utilize ITS to be More Effective?

Warning gate technology communicates with local ITS to determine traffic, traffic patterns, oncoming trains, or bridge changes. The ITS send accurate real-time monitoring information so that the gates react in a reliable and precise manner.

When the warning gate behaves intelligently, vehicle drivers are more inclined to heed warnings and respect the gate until favorable and safer conditions resume. This will save lives.

Why You Should Utilize Active Warning Gates with ITS

Installing warning gates to regulate and control traffic around bridges, roads, facilities, and trains can provide better security for the assets, save lives, reduce injuries, and manage traffic flow. When utilizing ITS, warning gates can accurately warn and stop traffic, making them more reliable and safe.

As ITS systems improve, states and local governments can more accurately predict and plan for traffic flow. They will be able to assess what areas need more traffic management and install warning gates to assist with traffic control and safety.

ITS also provides accurate, real-time hazardous weather information so that warning gates can close roads to protect vehicles and their passengers. Warning gates using ITS will ultimately reduce the number of lives lost on the road and create safer transportation conditions.

BBRSS is the premier solutions provider of roadway managed lane products. We design, manufacture, and distribute crash-rated active warning gates and vehicle barriers. Our B&B Roadway provides superior managed lane barrier systems for creating a safe work environment for roadway projects.

Question of the Week: What role do emergency towers play in securing an outdoor campus?
Author: Mike Streeter, Business Development Representative

 

A: Emergency towers, along with our IX Series Peer-to-Peer IP Video Intercom, play many crucial roles on campuses, including educational, corporate, and municipal properties.

Awareness 

Having emergency towers are a visible deterrent that an app-based emergency response tool cannot provide. Students, employees, and visitors can see the towers from a distance and know they have a means to quickly and effectively call for help. Our highly visible blue modular towers are topped with a beacon/strobe light for added discernability. If different tower color is desired—or different lettering choices are preferred—we can special order any custom color and lettering options.

 

Notification/Broadcast Alerts 

With an integrated mass notification system, important messages can be broadcast throughout an entire campus, relaying announcements and critical information, such as events, weather alerts, or lock-down warnings.

 

Cameras See and Record All 

With optional high-resolution built-in cameras, along with third-party camera integration, everything can be recorded 24/7. When the emergency or call button is pressed, the responder can see who they are in communication with and obtain situational awareness. When not in use, the tower is still an invaluable part of the security system. It is like having a security sentinel standing watch. This helps prevent crime that otherwise may take place.

 

Ensure They are Working 24/7/365 

Our IX Series features time-saving Device Check, which performs vital checks to each component connected to the system. This ensures all emergency stationspush buttons, cameras, speakers, and microphones are workingand at all times. This also saves countless hours of physically testing each tower, which should be done to avoid unfortunate consequences in emergency situations. 

Safety, assistance, prevention, and notification. Emergency towers can be an important layer to any security portfolio.

A: The role of emergency towers on a campus are to provide a fast and efficient way to respond to an emergency or a request for assistance at the time of need. It also allows campus security to monitor the grounds where the towers are located. Added video aids in providing situational awareness of the surrounding environment. Emergency or assistance towers provide a sense of security for staff, students, and visitors while in outdoor areas. Emergency towers are used to get help where it is needed with precise location details and minimal dispatch times to save and protect lives.

A: Having been involved in several emergency intercom applications, there are many key roles these can play in campus security. Blue light call boxes and towers stand out and serve as a deterrent while also giving students and employees a sense of security. the more common lowerpriority callslike car trouble, campus information if directions are needed, or general campus assistance. One of the major factors, of course, is in the case of a highpriority emergency, from active shooters, to campus assault, to reporting a crime. These calls can go to the security office or a 911 dispatch with location identification while giving the ability to broadcast information to the entire campus. Overall, the hope is to not have highpriority emergencies but just in case, it is important to have these campus security devices to best prepare and react.
