Military & Borders

Understanding the threat

Military

The military are tasked with supporting the interests of a country and its citizens.  They support our national defence policies; protect our nation against hostility and support, peace keeping humanitarian missions in volatile international locations.  Providing secure military establishments both in times of peace and hostility is a priority to enable a safe working environment for our armed forces, both at home and internationally

Borders

Protection of a nation’s borders is an essential element of a homeland security strategy. The rise in globalisation and freedom of movement presents an increasing pressure on border security.  Rises in immigration, geopolitical issues and threats of terrorism present a clear need to focus on the physical security measures adopted.

Products

Our products include road blockers, sliding gates, bollards, rising arm barriers & turnstiles with a variety of security levels from controlling access to parking spaces to protecting critical infrastructure from a vehicle borne terrorist attack.

Dependent on client requirements we can design unique solutions for our customers, to meet their specific needs. Our business model enables us to focus on our three core service offerings: concept, delivery & support.

Diplomatic & Government

Governments’ property portfolios are vital & valuable assets that ensure governments can carry out their duties both domestically and internationally.

UN & NATO

Both the UN & NATO operate in often hostile locations and the protection of their assets is vital to the continuity of the objectives they strive to deliver.

Counter Terrorism

Acts of terrorism take many forms, a vehicle laden with explosives and driven at speed with hostile intent are a physical threat to critical national infrastructure. Adopting counter terrorism principles in the design of vehicle access control points incorporating impact rated vehicle security barriers can form part of a physical security landscape design.
