Turntable Vehicle Barrier

The Turntable

 Vehicle Barrier (TVB) is a security device that opens and closes secure streets and roadways. Combining an industrial turntable with impact posts to stop attacking trucks, the TVB rotates within a street to provide access to approved vehicles. The TVB was conceived because of inherent problems with existing devices, which were originally designed for military installations, as well as the difficulties encountered when these devices were installed in New York's Lower Manhattan Financial District. The design team worked closely with the City of New York to meet the security requirements of the New York Stock Exchange and the New York Police Department and to create a device that is adaptable to be incorporated with the surrounding architecture.
