The systems themselves are the most cost effective access control point system when compared to similar alternatives. According to this accessible Commander's Update Brief, the installed flush mounted Road Blade is less than half the total cost of a GRAB system. A GRAB system is a one time use system. The permanent surface mounted system offer you saving of up to 80% when compared to a GRAB system.
To help save you money, the flush mounted surface have the optional preformed trenches. This significantly reduces the amount of time your contractor will need setting the foundation.
As a fully electrically driven system, you also receive significant saving on installation when compared to hydraulic systems.
The 20" modules allow for better road customization as well. Instead of having to buy 6 foot sections, the smaller modules allow you to cover 100% of the roadway. Your risks increase if you have a 10 foot roadway and leave as much as 40% of the road unprotected with a 6 foot system. Adding additional modules are very economical.
