Counter Terrorism

Understanding the threat

The threat from terrorism is evident in most countries throughout the world, recent attacks in Brussels & Paris have reignited awareness that the reach of terrorism can touch us all.

Threat Levels

Understanding the current in-country threat levels is something that government departments and businesses should be aware of and the type of threat that intelligence services expect.

Identifying the threats and protecting your vulnerabilities forms part of your security risk assessment, followed by identifying the measures that will contribute to reducing the risk and finally reviewing and rehearsing your security and contingency plans,  all of these measures contribute toward a risk management cycle.

Vehicle Security Barriers

A hostile vehicle intent on entering or forcing its way through a control point, needs to be physically stopped. Employing vehicle security barriers that have been impact tested and are specifically designed to protect against a such an attack.

Vehicle Security Barriers will prevent and protect against a hostile vehicle attack and if laden with explosives, keep any explosion away from the main infrastructure and workers.

Proven capabilities

Employing a barrier or road blocker that has been independently impact tested provides you with the confidence that you have put in place measures to mitigate against a hostile vehicle attack, incorporating a impact tested gate with ballistic protection protects against both hostile vehicle and armed weapon attack.
