This area can only be accessed via manned entry points, usually with a turnstile and guard over watch on the turnstiles (yellow arrow for this plant). Inside of the PA you must have an ID badge or be escorted by a person with a badge.
The fences separating the OCA from the PA are usually double row chain link with razor wire tops, and vehicle barriers or berms. Most plants set our BRE/Tower combinations along the PA fences looking out into the OCA.
We also provide delay fencing in this area, which is just a fence designed to slow down attackers. These delay fences are concrete blocks with grating extending about 10’-16’ vertically to stop an attacker.
Enhanced Vision BRE
Kontek offers a blast rated tower (up to and including 34 feet above grade) to enhance the ability to protect personnel, resources and assets from external threats. The proprietary design can be rapidly deployed and easily relocated with minimal disturbance.
Anti-Crash Vehicle Bollards
Kontek's full-scale crash tested bollard system defeated and destroyed a 15,000 lb. vehicle traveling at 40 mph. The proprietary design does not require the installation of concrete foundations to achieve protection.
Trailer Mounted BRE with Optional Generator
This unit can be pulled by a ¾ ton pickup truck.
Modular Armored Door
Drop in door system for any application, bolts into an existing door frame. Blast and ballistic rated to customer specifications. The door can mount windows and or gun ports, a hydraulic closer and uses Kontek’s simple latch system to create a robust, simple and maintenance free system.
10 x 10 Flared Sides
Small enhanced vision BRE for mounting to a rooftop of an existing structure. The flared (angled) sides look over and down the walls of a structure to provide unhindered fields of fire for its occupant.
Owner Contolled Area
OCA (Owner Controlled Area). This is the area owned by the nuclear plant, is subject to less strict protective measures but usually uses our vehicle barriers (VK8 or MBB) in combination with a fence. Most plants do not have active patrols, guard houses (BREs) or other manned points
