MARBLE FALLS, Texas, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Gibraltar, a leading manufacturer of anti-ram vehicle barriers used across the globe has announced that it has received approval of eight new anti-ram barrier systems by the USACE Protective Design Center. These new barriers are listed on the June 2017 release of the Department of Defense (DOD) Anti-Ram Vehicle Barrier List.

"Gaining the approval of DOD for these barriers allows for us to protect federal sites, compete in the marketplace, and provide quality products at a cost-effective price point to the government," says Joseph Hauss, Business Development Manager for Gibraltar's Anti-Vehicle Barrier Division.

Gibraltar has now successfully performed ASTM F2656 test certifications on 15+ different types of anti-ram vehicle barriers, with 15 of their current products listed on the USACE DOD Anti-Ram Vehicle Barrier List.
