SUMMARY


RSSI Barriers, LLC (hereafter “RSSI” or “RSSI Barriers”) manufactures anti
-
ram vehicle barriers
that reliably operate in all climates with minimal maintenance. This speci
fication defines the
Model RSS
-
4
000

series Pop
-
up

electric vehicle barrier

manufactured by RSSI Barriers
.


Crash tests have been performed and data compiled by approved independent agencies
certifying that the barrier meets performance evaluations per
ASTM specification M50
. The
barrier
will be

listed on the
ASTM
approved anti
-
ram vehicle barrier list

upon next update
. The
design and structural materials of the vehicle barrier furnished will be the same as those used in
the crash tested barrier.


The barrier’s vault assembly is hot dip
ped galvanized and

requires foundation depth of 60
”. The
barrier unit that
raises

to an above ground position is constructed of reinforced tubular steel

and
is powder coated providing a variety of available colors
.

Removable nonskid roadway plates,
secured by tamperproof flush bolts, provide easy access to the maintenance and service points of
the barrier without the use of heavy equipment.
If
it becomes
necessary, the entire
mechanical
structure which is designed a
s an insert can be lifted out of the foundation for any major repairs or
maintenance.

This insert assembly is also hot dipped galvanized for corrosion protection.


In the “UP” position, the barrier presents a visible obstacle to approaching vehicles capabl
e of
stopping and destroying heavily loaded trucks moving at high speeds. The height of the vehicle
-
arresting element is 36” measured from the roadway surface to the top of the
bollard
. Red strobe
lights on the posts flash to provide caution when the bar
riers are deployed
.
Upon impact, forces
are transferred though the posts into the foundation.


In the “DOWN” position, the barrier is completely flush with the roadway and will not damage
tires
, snowplows, sweeping machines,
etc.


A servo electromechanic
al actuator operates the barrier. The barrier is capable of 200 complete
UP
/

DOWN

cycles per hour. The barrier motion is reversible and at normal operating speed the
barrier raises in 3 seconds. With the emergency fast operation circuit installed,
the
barrier raises
in

1
.5

second
s
.


In the event of a power failure, the barrier is designed to remain in the last commanded position.
The barrier can be operated by a battery back
-
up system or manually using standard hand tools
or a drill fitted with the pr
oper drive.


All major components, including the actuator, the control and logic modules, and the cabinet, are
built to withstand heavy industrial traffic control requirements. These components, together with



Page
5

of
16

any specified options, are housed in a weathe
r resistant cabinet designed to withstand the
anticipated environmental conditions of the installation site.


The control and logic modules are field programmable by a professional installer to meet the
widest range of operating requirements, including int
erface with remote control stations and
buried detectors. A range of optional inputs can be used to command the barrier, such as:
vehicle loop detectors, access control systems, remote hard wired control, remote radio, card
reader, key switch, local guard

operator console, or a combination thereof.


The
pop
-
up

barrier and accessories provide for easy maintenance, such that local maintenance
technicians can perform routine and annual maintenance tasks without the use and assistance of
heavy equipment.


RSSI Barriers provides a three (3) year electrical warranty and a five (5) year mechanical
warranty from the date the barrier leaves our manufacturing facility. Parts only. Freight not
included. Extended warranty options may be available. Please inquir
e.
