According to FEMA guidelines, a direct crash into the steel cage by a vehicle (that bypasses the bollards) will sustain stops a 2,430-pound vehicle moving at 40 miles per hour. That is comparable to a C40 barrier rating. The booth is also protected by five bollards. The bollards have a K4 / ASTM M30 rating considered Medium Security. K4 rated bollards stop a 15,000-pound vehicle moving 30 miles per hour.
