Nasatka Security Continues Phase III Life Cycle Barrier Replacement Program at Legislative Washington, D.C. Branch

CHICAGOSept. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Nasatka Security CEO John Scolaro announced today that the company was recently awarded Phase III of a barrier replacement program entering its third year, totaling over 60 barriers and assets in our nation’s capital.

Scolaro stated, “It’s a very quick turnaround period with our government agency clients when dealing with a barrier life cycle replacement program so not to impede existing traffic flow and site security; for this particular client, our window from removal to replacement is 72 hours or less. Considering the complexity of such a monumental number of barriers in such a close proximity, it can be a stressful and daunting task; however, with over 44 years of experience, we do whatever it takes to make it happen within our short time period; quickly and safely.”

According to Scolaro, most perimeter security solution providers have a preventative maintenance program for traditional wedge plate barriers, bollards, nets, gates, fencing access control points and mobile barriers. For high-volume use with large facilities like government agencies, airports, nuclear facilities, ports and various other secure environments, there needs to be a lifecycle management program to ensure optimal functionality and the strict crash rating compliance.

The crash ratings were developed in 1985 (revised in 2003) by the DOS, and more recently, further developed by American Society for Testing Methods (ASTM). The product is given a specific test certification based on vehicle weight, speed and distance of penetration. Whether it’s traditional wedge plate barrier or bollard, a successful lifecycle management program will identify current and future infrastructure needs, identify potential issues, risks and constraints and will allow providers to successfully rationalize impacts of various courses of action to deliver the greatest good for safety and design for the infrastructure and overall perimeter security.

According to Scolaro, Nasatka Security has been providing perimeter security solutions in and around Washington, D.C. for dozens of government agencies since its inception in 1975. Non-disclosure agreements and DOS/DOD privacy policies keep many of the organizations private to ensure maximum protection for all Nasatka Security’s clients.

“If you are walking around our nation’s capital and happen to see a wedge and/or bollard barrier pop-up, it’s highly likely we had something to do with the installation, maintenance, and/or its lifecycle replacement history,” Scolaro added.
