M530 & M550 Barrier Arms
M30 & K12 - Drop Arm Barrier
The barrier arm is a multi-purpose entry drop-arm that controls traffic while providing an anti-ram obstacle to protect from potential vehicular threats. We offer two different crash rated barrier arm options - the M550 is K12/L3 rated and M530 is rated as M30/P1.
The M530 has two successfully tested designs. The 22-foot barrier design does not require excavation across the roadway, whereas the 12-foot barrier design uses a shallow excavation across the roadway for a monolithic installation. The M530 barrier arm is also available in engineered design lengths to fit specific site requirements.
- Barrier arm lengths are available in 10, 14, 16, 18 & 20 ft., but are not crash tested.
- 1 HP motor w/ brake
- Housing & receiver - galvanized & painted yellow
- Dual channel loop detector
- Aluminum arm w/ white & yellow reflective striping
This barrier has been crash tested and certified to ASTM F2656, Dept of State and/or other international standards. Up to 22 Ft. Road Coverage
These barrier arms can span distances at 12 ft. and 22 ft. for anti-ram coverage of larger roadways. Optional Traffic Light Available
Add an integrated traffic light with mounting post to the barrier arm for addition traffic control. Shallow Mount Installation
Barrier can be installed at a more shallow bury depth, saving time and money. See Specifications for more details. Specifications
