Product Details

Elkosta Wedge barriers - security for highly sensitive entry points:

elkosta Wedge Barriers offer maximum security against unauthorised wheeled vehicles of all sizes and weights for highly sensitive entry points. The Wedge Barrier K12 and the new Wedge II are designed to guarantee the full level of security and can be installed as a single unit or in combination with other elkosta products in order to realise a sluice arrangement forming a vehicle check point. 

Elkosta Wedge II - lowest foundation thickness in the world:

With its decreased installation depth and foundation footprint combined with the lowest foundation thickness in the world - only 300 mm - the elkosta Wedge II reduces installation costs significantly and allows installation in areas where foundation depths are limited due to underground utilities. Starting and lifting power for raising of blocking element due to energy stored in pressure springs have been optimised as well. This all means lower costs for higher security. The Wedge II is available with or without skirt - one version for all requirements!

Wedge Barrier K12 - eye-catching road barrier:

The Wedge Barrier K12 is the previous model of the Wedge II. Due to an optional warning plate with flashing lights and its eye catching warning colour(s) the blocking segment is clearly visible to approaching vehicles. In the lowered position the Wedge Barrier K12 is absolutely unobtrusive and flush with the road surface. The Wedge Barrier K12 comes along with a shallow foundation of only 400 mm.
A closed version with safety skirt at a reduced height of 1000 mm is also available.

Typical application areas:

  • Embassies
  • Military
  • Ministries
  • Banks
  • City centres
  • Industrial plants
  • Data processing centres
