Reliable and effective physical security in the oil & gas sector is a challenging objective, when situated in remote and often high risk locations.


Vital resources that we depend on every day, the physical infrastructures that provide these services face an ever evolving threat, be it natural or man-made.

Stadiums | Hotels | Public Places

Sports, recreation, business and entertainment venues are places where large numbers of people gather to share cultural interests making them an attractive target for terrorism.

Airports | Ports | Rail

Airports face increasing security issues and threats both land and air side, working with airport operators, consultants, architects and contractors...

Banks | Data Centres

Banks, Financial Institutes and Data Centres are the backbones of world economies and if disrupted or compromised can have devastating effects, leading to instability and vulnerability of governments and institutions.


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

Shopping Malls

Crowded shopping centres and malls are designed with many wide entrances and exits for ease of access for the general public incorporating localised convenient car parking and busy service areas are likely for retailers stock to be replenished. These elements can provide an opportunity for an act of hostile intent by a vehicle.

Diplomatic | Government

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

Military & Borders

Military establishments require the highest levels of physical protection and security. Hostile Vehicle Mitigation solutions are a means of protecting access points from an aggressive vehicle attack, for both permanent & temporary military bases and in theatre.

Historic buildings | Museums | Art Galleries | Palaces

A nation’s objects of artistic, cultural, historical, or scientific importance and the Iconic buildings that hold these valuable treasures, are public places that attract tourists and large groups of people.

Traffic Management & Parking

Controlling the flow of vehicles into a parking or restricted area can be achieved using a vehicle control barrier, our automated parking barriers can form part of your vehicle access control system. A range of parking & security control products including automated and manual solutions assist with traffic management.


Managing traffic in the commercial environment is a key element of a security strategy for a business; whether it is employees coming to work, the logistics of heavy goods vehicles delivering and picking up or ad hoc visitors, we can provide traffic management solutions.

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.
