Portable Vehicle Barrier (PVB) increases market share as stadiums, police and private companies rush to buy
February 3, 2012 – Miami, FL – SSI’s patented Portable Vehicle Barrier, the solution for a quick deploying crash barrier, will also be shown all over the country: ISC West, NCS4, GovSec, IAVM, Counter Terror Expo and more.
“We are proud to have one of the best force protection tools and have adapted it to the US market for security,” says Sol Bradman, CEO of SSI. “The Portable Vehicle Barrier that was used so successfully in Iraq will now be used in the USA to protect parades, large scale events, stadiums and buildings from a vehicle that might have hostile intent or just lost its breaks.”
Indeed the Portable Vehicle Barrier is a VBIED (Vehicle Born Improvised Explosive Device) killer that literally takes the vehicles forward movement and uses it against the vehicle levering the vehicle into the air. Made in the USA, the PVB requires no electricity and no maintenance. This makes it must-have for agencies entrusted with protecting large gatherings such as the Super Bowl that will take place this Sunday. When Arlington had the responsibility for this event, they bought the PVB for additional peace of mind.
Recently, at a Miami Heat game, a car lost its breaks and careened out of control down a ramp. Luckily the driver was able to avoid hitting people. It might have been a disaster. The PVB makes sure the road will be closed therefore protecting fans, people walking or buildings that might be targets.
Security Solutions International, a company well known for having trained more than 1,000 US federal, state and local agencies manufactured the barrier to provide local agencies with a device that could help secure perimeters at venues, buildings and infrastructure. The company has been surprised by the success of the product and is considering further product development in 2012.
