The Battery Operated Barrier, or B.O.B. is designed to dramatically increase personnel safety, improve traffic flow and enhance security as well. B.O.B. can multi-task as a radio controlled or manned temporary or long term security access gate, roadblock, checkpoint, detour, closure or parking device in virtually any industry. Deployed in under two minutes, with its hi-tech remote transmitter, authorized personnel can enter or egress secure areas without having to exit their vehicle.
