The NMSB XVI is a 16ft clear opening mobile barrier used for severe-threat security areas requiring versatile perimeter protection.

The barrier clear opening is 16 feet. In the up position the top of the barrier is 31″ (78.7 cm) above the road surface.
All Nasatka mobile barriers are hot-dip galvanized for years of service. The hydro-electric operator system uses biodegradable hydraulic oil within it’s self-contained integrated housing unit. Standard barrier deployment time is 3-5 seconds. No weight restrictions are placed on vehicles traveling over this barrier. This barrier does not require excavation thus does not mark or damage the roadway surface. Easy to use leveling feet allow the barrier to be adjusted to site-specific elevations.
