While the EL-GO TEAM boasts over 30 years of experience in designing, developing, manufacturing, supply, and installation of security solutions, they still face challenges, which require specialized skills and expertise. One such problem is the installation of arm barriers in areas with extreme weather conditions. In this particular case, we take a look at how our team installed a heavy duty arm barrier model EL-09- 1 in a snowy area where temperatures were extremely low.
As a testament that we as EL-GO TEAM have what it takes to provide security solutions to various organizations and government-related bodies regardless of their location, we embarked on a mission to try and install our products in a remote area with extreme weather condition. In this case study, we used the EL-09-1 concrete arm barrier which boasts K4 and K8 impact resistance. With the low temperatures experienced in the area, we were bound to face a few challenges.
For starters, the environment we were working in could not allow any ground excavation. This meant that the project called for the use of premium-quality security products that don’t need to be buried deep into the ground. Additionally, the low temperatures brought a myriad of problems on the concrete. Besides slowing the setting and hardening of the concrete, low temperatures may also lead to the formation of ice lens and expansion within the pore structure. Due to the low ambient temperature, specialized techniques were adopted to help cure the concrete.
