Triple Strand RDU

US Patent No. 7,909,309 B2

Allied Tube & Conduit’s Triple Strand Rapid Deployment Unit (RDU) is a quickly deployed security perimeter appropriate for emerging threats or for a permanent barrier.

With the capacity to deploy 480′ of Razor-Ribbon in just two minutes, our Triple Strand RDU takes the place of a large crew working hours in the field. The unit deploys with only two people and removes the potentially hazardous conditions associated with field installation of barbed tape coils.

Rapid Deployment System consists of a stack of one (1) 60″ Barbed Tape Coil on top of two (2) 30″ Barbed Tape Coils. A network of structural support trusses every 11′ add rigidity and allow accessories to be fastened to deployment unit. Additionally support trusses come with provisions for ground stakes and an integral cable system to assist in deployment over any type of terrain. Deployment time is two (2) minutes and retraction time is between 12 to 17 minutes. Deployment length is 480 feet. Package size is 90″ high by 62″ wide. Ship weight is 2,100 lbs.

We start with two thirty inch concertina coils side-by-side on the ground with one sixty inch concertina coil sitting on top to provide a 7 1/2 foot high security barrier.

We place rigid stanchions every eleven feet to provide support. A heavy cable ensures the unit is not over-extended or collapsed between stanchions. The design ensures the perimeter is stable. Stepping through this barrier is impossible without extensive efforts to cut and remove the wire. It’s easily integrated with electronic sensing equipment.

The Triple Strand RDU comes standard with Allied Tube & Conduit’s short barb material. This material was specifically designed for military applications and is considered a “delay” barrier, like steel Velcro. However, the Triple Strand RDU can be customized with any of the full line of Razor-Ribbon barbed tape products including our Detainer Hook barb.
