FutureWEDGE 3600 – The Highest Level of Security

The all-electric FutureWEDGE® 3600 is the obvious choice for stopping and immobilizing a 15,000 lb. vehicle traveling at 50 mph with zero penetration.

A flush surface, shallow foundation makes this surface vehicle barrier the number one choice for securing a facility at the ASTM M50 (DoS-K12) crash certification level.

The FutureWEDGE® 3600 is a final denial, crash-tested vehicle barrier. The shallow foundation, combined with the wedge plate design, is a standalone industry-leading product in the market. This vehicle barrier provides maximum protection at the ASTM M50 P1 (K12) certification level. The all-electric precision design is environmentally preferable and provides smooth operation, increased traffic flow and reduced maintenance. The flush surface design does not inhibit any aspect of the roadway when in the down position.

SHF3614 15″ (381mm) 12″ (304mm) 36″ (915mm) up to 20′ (6.7m) M50 P1 15,000 lbs @ 50 mph (6,800 kg @ 80 kmph)

All-Electric Operation

The FutureWEDGE® 3600 surface vehicle barrier is all electric with no hydraulics or associated hazardous fluids. The electric design reduces unwanted breakdowns associated with traditional hydraulic systems and common wearing components such as hoses, cylinders and HPUs. The electro-mechanical drive features smooth, quiet and trouble-free operation capable of continuous duty cycles.

Built for Integration

The FutureWEDGE® 3600 utilizes sophisticated PLC and VFD drives to allow for customized operation and communication. The PLC also allows the barrier to be easily integrated with other perimeter security components such as speed detection, access controls, traffic loops, automatic doors, CCTV, gates, and other intrusion devices.

LEED Environmentally Preferable

With the all-electric design, low emitting materials, qualified manufacturing points, and environmental sustainability, the FutureWEDGE® 3600 can contribute to as many as six LEED categories. The majority of city boards of management are refusing to allow hydraulic systems to be drained into their sewage systems, so the pollution-free advantage of the FutureWEDGE® 3600 makes total sense.

Low Installation Costs

The FutureWEDGE® 3600 is a shallow-foundation, flush-surface barrier designed for minimal excavation with maximum security. The barrier subframe is 15″ (381 mm) deep. With no cumbersome hydraulic hoses and HPU unit to install, the FutureWEDGE® 3600 offers lower installation costs. The shallow design is lighter in weight and reduces the amount of excavation necessary to achieve the ASTM M50 P1 (K12) rating when compared to other competitive barriers. The vehicle barrier is self-contained and arrives fully assembled ready to be placed in the foundation, finished with rebar, and concrete poured.
