Ensuring the security of the movement of people and goods across the globe is vital to the infrastructures of world economies.
Airports face increasing security issues and threats both land and air side, working with airport operators, consultants, architects and contractors, we strive to deliver physical security solutions that can be incorporated into a holistic security strategy that enables the busy environment of an airport to operate seamlessly, whilst still providing a high level of protection against a physical hostile attack from a vehicle.
The right solution – reducing the risk without reducing the adventure
Combinations of solutions are ideal for the different security objectives that busy international transport hubs face.
“Maritime transport is essential to the world’s economy as over 90% of the world’s trade is carried by sea and it is, by far, the most cost-effective way to move en masse goods and raw materials around the world.” (source: International Maritime Organisation (IMO))
Ports face a complex security challenge both on land and sea to protect the vital transportation of the world’s commodities. The perimeter and land access points require security solutions that enable authorised traffic to enter load or off load efficiently, whilst maintaining a secure environment. Illegal traffic, theft and terrorism, are some of the security challenges port operators have to mitigate risk against. We have an experienced team to help you to specify the best measures to control vehicle access and protect against terrorism or hostile vehicle attack.
Rail infrastructure is a vital resource for travel and freight internationally, invested in by governments, industry, private companies and the public.
The operational security incorporates many factors including physical security to provide a level of protection from identified risks and threats, from vandalism and theft, to terrorism.
Rail infrastructure has a complex mix of assets that require protection including terminal buildings, signalling control centres, bridges & tunnels, freight holding depots, service delivery areas & even public car parks. Our expertise can assist you in specifying the right solution and recommend vehicle security barriers that can be utilised within a security risk mitigation strategy.
Our products include static, fixed or removable bollards, retractable bollards, sliding gates, turnstiles, rising arm barriers & road blockers with a variety of security levels from controlling access to parking spaces to protecting critical infrastructure from a vehicle borne terrorist attack.

Reliable and effective physical security in the oil & gas sector is a challenging objective, when situated in remote and often high risk locations.
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.
In 2007, a vehicle laden with explosives was driven at speed into the façade of the departure terminal at Glasgow Airport, with the intention to cause mass casualties; luckily the…
