Dragnet Vehicle Arresting Barrier is a simple, yet versatile, non-lethal
product that was derived from The Entwistle Company's long history
design and manufacture of aircraft arresting gear systems for shipboard
installations. The system offers a practical solution for highway
safety, security, and force protection applications.
Dragnet has been extensively tested by independent transportation
research organizations. The system has satisfied the Structural Adequacy,
Occupant Risk and Vehicle Trajectory evaluation criteria per the
National Cooperative Highway Research Program Report 350 (NCHRP 350),
TL-3 Head-On Impact.
Dragnet systems are currently designed and tested for highway safety
applications such as:
- Median barriers
- Work zone protection
- Truck escape ramps
- High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lane closures
- Railroad crossings
The Dragnet also offers a solution to the
need for security and force protection by denying access to highly
sensitive areas such as military bases, government buildings,
or industrial facilities.
