METALITH: Perimeter Security Systems

Infrastructure Defense Technologies designs and manufactures our METALITH line of K12-certified, high-quality, high-strength Perimeter Security Barrier Systems. The METALITH system has been designed to meet the anti-blast, anti-ram, and anti-terrorism demands for perimeter security solutions required by the military, the U.S. government, and owners and operators of many types of critical infrastructure assets. Our primary perimeter security systems are anti-ram vehicle barriers and blast mitigation barriers.

Our METALITH perimeter security barrier systems:

  • Protect personnel and assets from the direct effects of an explosive blast
  • Deflect explosion blast waves / pressure waves
  • Protect against anti-ram vehicle penetrations
  • Protect personnel and assets from shrapnel and exploding fragments
  • Screen against direct fire
  • Prevent chain reaction explosions

METALITH is the choice of many security consultants, security contractors, corporate security officers, industrial security products purchasing managers, and anti-terrorism specialists, who require physical perimeter security systems to protect personnel and critical infrastructure assets against Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices (VBIEDs) and vehicular penetration by hostile forces (anti-ram and anti-blast). Industrial, commercial, and government facilities can best use our METALITH barrier systems as protection from intruders – from disgruntled former employees to terrorists – attempting to penetrate perimeter security using a vehicle intended to ram through a gate, wall, or security post or those intending to set off an explosive device to cause damage to facilities, assets, and personnel.
