Roller Barrier used in a USA Psychiatric Centre, non aggressive solution to climbers

When a safe and secure anti-climb solution was required for this Psychiatric Centre in Philadelphia in the USA, Roller Barrier was the natural choice.

With no aggressive spikes for would be climbers to impale themselves on, Roller Barrier is the preferred anti-climb system of choice for use in sensitive locations, where the would be climbers may not fully appreciate the risks invoved in trying to negotiate their way over a spike based anti climb barrier.


Developed in the UK, Roller Barrier is designed to withstand extremes of weather, delivering a long operational life.

The basic concept of the system is simple, the Roller Cups are designed to be too large to get a handgrip on. The cups are threaded onto a central spindle and rotate independently to form an unstable barrier, making it very difficult to climb.

The system is widely specified in the UK as the "Preferred - Anti-climb System" for use in and around schools or other areas where children congregate.

It is also a favourite with Secure Medical Facilities, Homes for Autism, Drug Rehabilitation Centres and other specialist organisations where those likely to come into contact with it may be suffering temporary (i.e. drug or alchohol induced) or permanent impairment to their judgement.


The Roller Barrier system is also used in and around Prisons

...and Young Offender Institutes, such as the unit pictured below in Canada, where its non threatening, non aggressive appearance is seen as a very positive attribute.
