Understanding the threat

The objectives of the United Nations

The objectives of the UN

  • Maintain International Peace and Security
  • Deliver Humanitarian Aid
  • Uphold International Law
  • Protect Human Rights
  • Promote Sustainable Development (source:www.un.org)

The activities of NATO

NATO is an active and leading contributor to peace and security on the international stage. It promotes democratic values and is committed to the peaceful resolution of disputes. However, if diplomatic efforts fail, it has the military capacity needed to undertake crisis-management operations, alone or in cooperation with other countries and international organisations.  (source:www.nato.int)

Our global solutions

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

Our experience in installing and maintaining vehicle & pedestrian control equipment to protect buildings, military bases, infrastructure and ultimately people, in the most remote of location can contribute to the continuing work by such organisations.

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.
