Our History

From an innovation in barrier technology, now known as the Ground Retractable Automobile Barrier or GRAB®, USR was founded in 1994. After seeing the need for a safer barrier following a tragic accident at a railroad crossing, USR’s founder came up with the concept for the GRAB®. From there, the company was dedicated to involving clients and end users in all markets to aid in designing the most flexible, cost-efficient, reduced-risk barrier in the world.

Prior to the invention of the GRAB®, reduced-risk barriers had long run-off distances of up to 200 feet and rigid barriers, such as hydraulic bollards and wedge barriers, were costly and potentially dangerous. USR answered the call for a reduced-risk, K12 certified barrier solution with the GRAB® and changed the face of barrier technology.

By April 2005, USR was established as a reputable provider of active vehicle barriers by the U.S. government through its award of GSA Contract #GS-07F-5792R.
