Thanks to the CIP-014-1 being passed in late 2015, the utility security industry is growing faster than ever. That’s especially the case with the production of ballistic barriers.
So, what’s the difference between one ballistic barrier and any other? What makes Ideal Utility Services’ ballistic barriers better than the competitors?
- Up to the Highest Standards: They meet NERC CIP-014-1 security requirements for bulk power systems and are Lab Certified UL 752, Level 3,4,7,8 Ballistics Protection. Ideal’s ballistic barriers are also non-flammable, resistant to ramming and ballistics attack, and also have an anti-climb feature to ward off any trespassers.
- Not Concrete: This may sound like a disadvantage but with the air flow that is crucial for utility areas and power grids, a restrictive barrier like concrete can be a problem. The difference, Ideal’s barriers are made from US steel and rated up to 120mphs.
- Custom Design: Concrete can also be very ugly for facilities, especially in the city. That is what separates Ideal’s barriers from most. They are custom made which includes the design, height and length, and can be installed within 18″ of critical assets to give each buyer exactly what they need.
- Freedom of Repair: With concrete barriers, utility owners can have problems reaching critical assets when issues arise. Not with the Ideal ballistic barrier as they can be removed and re-installed to fix any problems with the assets.
