All-Electric Operation

The FutureWEDGE® RAC vehicle barrier range is precision designed with no hydraulics or associated hazardous fluids. The all-electric operation eliminates breakdowns associated with traditional hydraulics systems and common wearing components such as hoses, cylinders and HPUs. The electro-mechanical drive features smooth, quiet, trouble-free operation.

Designed for Car Rental Facilities

This innovative all-electric barrier has been designed using the crash-tested FutureWEDGE® platform. By modifying this proven product to suit the specific needs of the rental car industry, we have been able to create a robust solution that far exceeds other competitive products in this market space. Biometrics and RFID card readers can be integrated for access control.

LEED Environmentally Preferable

With the pollution-free, all-electric design, low-emitting materials, qualified manufacturing points and environmental sustainability, the FutureWEDGE® RAC vehicle barrier can contribute to LEED certification in up to six strategic categories.

Plug & Activate

The FutureWEDGE® RAC vehicle barrier is a self-contained “plug and activate” single buttress bolt-down barrier, designed for effective traffic control. It is the ideal solution for car rental sites, parking garages, or for campus access points requiring crash-rated security at a very competitive price. The FutureWEDGE® RAC barrier has a plate height of 24 inches (610 mm) in the fully armed position (considerably higher than other competitive models) and is capable of stopping and immobilizing a 2,430 lb (1,100 kg) vehicle traveling at 40 mph (65 kph), commonly referred to as an ASTM C40 crash rating. Single entrances up to 15 feet (4.57 m) wide can be secured with this barrier. It is standard with LED stop/go lights and can be ordered with a fully-integrated gate arm assembly.
