Note: Hydraulic operated barrier systems shall
contain synthetic biodegradable hydraulic fluid.
SECTION 34 71 13.19
Page 8
The fluid shall be International Organization for
Standardization (ISO) Grade 32 for cooler climates
or ISO Grade 46 for temperate zones. Barriers for
tropical or desert areas require a heavier grade,
verify grade requirements with local suppliers.
Based on barrier cycling and climate data, decide if
a hydraulic fluid heater is required.
Edit these paragraphs according to the barriers
chosen.

RETRACTABLE BARRIERS
**************************************************************************
NOTE: Coordinate with paragraph SYSTEM DESCRIPTION.
Based on the threat vehicle, state the height and
width of retractable vehicle barrier required. The
maximum tested width of approved barriers to date
has not exceeded 3.66 m 144 inches. A minimum
height of 711 mm 28 inches is required. Consult
manufacturer's literature for barrier heights.

There are no known barriers capable of supporting
loads larger than those indicated here and which
will meet all other requirements found within this
guide specification. These load limits are adequate
for normal commercial truck traffic but will not
support the Army's Heavy Equipment Transporter (HET)
or similar vehicle. Overall design consideration
must include providing alternate access for these
vehicles if they have a valid reason for entering
the secured area.
Federal and/or state EPA regulations may require
that an oil/water separator be installed in the pit
drainage system to ensure capture of any hydraulic
fluid that may leak out of the system. If pit/vault
type construction is required provisions will be
made for drainage and connection to storm drainage
system, or if no storm drain exists, a self-priming
submersible sump pump of adequate capacity will be
specified.
