about SMVB

Mifram is proud to present its SMVB pop up barrier (Snap Mobile Vehicle Barrier) – a unique, concealed vehicle barrier.
The SMVB is similar to Mifram’s MVB incorporating that system’s characteristics and advantages.

When a vehicle approaches an perimeter ambush point, the SMVB is pops up using either an electrical or mechanical remote control (dependent on the model).

The vehicle is trapped on the concealed barrier obstructing backwards or forward movement.

The concealed barrier converts the vehicle’s horizontal momentum to vertical momentum which is transferred directly into the ground hindering or stopping the vehicle.

Once vehicle has been impeded by or caught on the concealed barrier it is easier and safer to overcome and arrest the surprised smugglers or terrorists.

The SMVB snaps open in just 1.5 seconds to block the threatening vehicle. Despite the force of impact, the SMVB is designed to transfer the vehicles forward momentum into the ground with the barrier’s horizontal element acting as “teeth” biting into the bottom of the vehicle to lift and immobilize its front wheels.

The vehicle is in many cases “trapped” on the barrier hindering or preventing forward or backward movement. – all this with minimum damage to the vehicle or harm to its occupants. This makes it significantly easier to overpower its occupants.

SMVB in the world

SMVB is a pop up bollard alternative installed worldwide to protect a variety of facilities, stadiums, festivals, events, military bases, hospitals and more.

In the never ending a-symmetric struggle between law enforcement agencies and criminals and terrorists, the
SMVB is a new and innovative product developed by Mifram that surprises the “bad guys” aiding stopping them in their tracks so that they can be overcome quickly and efficiently.

Whether it’s drug runners, weapons smuggling, traders in human beings, stopping a suspicious or threatening vehicle – stopping vehicles in the field is a complex task.

Experienced terrorists and smugglers know the lay of the land and, well in advance, will be able to identify visible barriers and easily go around it.

However, the SMVB system can be concealed and camouflaged in almost any terrain thus making it very difficult to beidentified and avoided.

Balancing Effectivity with Minimum Harm to People The barrier is designed to stop vehicles with minimum damage to the vehicle.
The barrier is non-lethal when the occupants are wearing seat belts and the vehicle reaches the barrier at speeds of up to 60 Km/h (an acceptable speed when travelling off-road).

The barrier is designed to surprise and aid the stopping of smuggler and terrorist vehicles even on side roads when the criminals / enemy are less likely to suspect an ambush.

After the barrier has been hidden, it is almost invisible even to smugglers who know the terrain well and who are sensitive to changes that indicate an ambush and they will find it almost impossible to see the trap when travelling.
The Snap Mobile Vehicle can be camouflaged so that it blends in with most terrains.
