All-Electric Operation

The FutureWEDGE® 3100 features an all-electric drive with no hydraulic or hazardous fluids, making it an environmentally-preferable choice. Common breakdowns and worn components associated with traditional hydraulic systems are drastically reduced.

Built for Integration

The FutureWEDGE® 3100 utilizes sophisticated Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) and Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) for customized operation and communication. The PLC easily integrates the barrier with other perimeter security systems such as speed detection, access controls, traffic loops, automatic doors, CCTV, gates, and other intrusion devices.

Multiple Features

The FutureWEDGE® 3100 comes standard with integrated single or dual buttress featuring LED Status Indicator Lights. Integrated Gate Arms can be added. The 3100 is crash rated for all three ASTM M and DoS K levels. Typical foundation depth for an anchor frame installation is 8 – 12 inches (203 – 305 mm). Road widths up to 21 feet (6.4 m) can be secured with the 3100 series.
