The Mobile Barriers
MBT-1m is an integrated, modular, rigid wall trailer that has many capabilities: provide extreme
protection for our troops and assets, assist in crowd control operations, provide on-base and rolling
protection, block roads, secure airport entrance & perimeters, protect against hostile vehicle ram attack, set up mobile spot inspection points, assist with repairs and can be used on
base for additional security. The original MBT-1® has proven itself domestically by repeatedly turning
cars and trucks and protecting workers. Displayed at Fort Leonard Wood, the MBT-1® was hailed as
a “long overdue force protection” by military personnel. A special MBT-1m version was designed
specifically for security and defense applications. With around 1,000,000 lbs. (4450000 N) of sheer strength and up
to 9 feet (2.7 meters) tall, the MBT-1m can stop a car, pickup or straight truck in a direct 90 degree impact of at least
45 mph (72 kmh). It’s capable of stopping or deflecting even more, particularly when angled to the approach.
The MBT-1m will withstand small arms fire and can provide higher levels of blast protection. View the MBT-1m Capability Statement [PDF], [JPG].
The barrier provides innovative advances for both transportation and security/defense. For transportation, Mobile Barriers MBT-1® has been improving safety and
efficiency of crews, while likewise improving safety for the traveling public and reducing work zone congestion and delays. For security/defense, Mobile Barriers MBT-1® has been called the “mobile fortress” and hailed as a “long overdue force protection solution” by military officials. Capable of providing extreme protection for troops and assets during a variety of operations such as crowd control, on-base and rolling operations, road block operations, mobile spot inspection, and base repair and security operations.
