This lightweight safety barrier can stop a 7.5-ton truck

Security barriers come in all shapes and sizes. Some are complex and made of metal that can stop a tank in its path, and some are just simple cones used to direct the flow of traffic. Mifram Security wanted the portability of the orange cone with the stopping power of a metal barrier, so it created the MVB-3X. Weighing 53 pounds per unit, the MVB-3X can stop a 7.5-ton truck. The lightweight barrier can be connected to other units to increase the overall length. The barriers themselves are collapsible and require no tools to install. A single person can deploy and install these barriers, and with the help of a lever, the MVB-3X can even be opened to allow vehicles to pass when needed.
