Portable Vehicle Barriers: Meridian's Archer 1200 Rapid Deployment Vehicle Barriers Deployed at the 55th Grammy Awards

Meridian Rapid Defense Group protects the 2013 Grammy Awards against vehicular intrusion.

    PASADENA, CA, February 20, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Meridian Rapid Defense Group deployed its patented Archer 1200 vehicle barriers to protect the 55th Grammy Awards. Meridian's rapid deployment barriers barricaded four lanes at a key entrance at the Staples Center. The Archer 1200 barriers effectively blocked vehicular traffic while granting pedestrians unimpeded access.

The Archer 1200 vehicle barriers are configured for expedited deployment and as needed, retrieval and relocation. The rapid deployment vehicle barriers are transported on a trailer and can be rolled into position by one person without the need for heavy lifting equipment. The Archer barriers blocked 44 ft. from vehicular intrusion and took approximately ten minutes to deploy.

Meridian's portable vehicle barriers are modular and are adjusted to the varying needs of the military, government, ports, dams, water treatment facilities, oil & gas facilities, construction industry, universities and the police. All Archer vehicle barriers are made of ballistic rated steel and are an excellent deterrent against Vehicle Born Improvised Explosive Devices (VBIED). All of Meridian's products are made in the USA and are distributed worldwide. For further information, please contact us at (323) 282-7836.
