Having worked closely with the CPNI and the PSSA, Bristorm have been able to develop a range of quality HVM perimeter fencing systems that meet the highest security requirements across the world. Having experienced large success in the Middle East, new threats today have encouraged their return to the UK market and a demand for high security front of house solutions has been identified.
Terrorism is a major threat for businesses. Terrorist groups may seek to cause harm to the economy as a whole by attacking business premises or they may seek to attack specific businesses to advance their political agendas. The threat is not confined to the UK; companies that do business overseas may also be targeted.
In the UK, the most significant terrorist threat comes from international terrorism with its ambitions to mount high impact attacks designed to result in mass casualties. Bristorm’s high security Impeder Bollards can be appropriately applied to front of house locations and will perform to mitigate vehicle borne attacks at 30, 40 and 50mph. With subtle and sophisticated finishes, the Impeder Bollards coupled with their Bollard and Street Furniture Sleeves are tested and rated to BSI PAS 68/ IWA 14 but their integration into the surrounding environment will ensure site appearance and functionality isn’t compromised. Zero penetration and shallow mount Impeder Bollards are also available making them practical when implemented into crowded locations, entrance ways to stadiums, arenas and airports and the general street scene.
The current threat level from international terrorism for the UK is SEVERE. Vehicle borne attacks can be unpredictable and as UK national Infrastructure grows, the need for businesses and local authorities to protect their premises becomes increasingly more important. Bristorm specialise in high security, static HVM Fences and Bollards but their aesthetically pleasing sleeves were a welcome addition as high quality and high performance PAS 68 rated products can be introduced to the commercial market. Their Street Furniture sleeves collection includes: Cycle Hoops, Living Walls and Planters.
Vehicle-borne threats range from vandalism to sophisticated or aggressive attacks by determined criminals or terrorists. The mobility and payload capacity of a vehicle offers a convenient delivery mechanism for a large explosive device, although the vehicle itself may be used as a weapon. Bristorm Anti-Vehicle products vary in performance meaning they’re able to supply an appropriate means of protection in line with the perceived threat/s identified across your site/s. Bristorm Anti-Vehicle Fences including Bristorm ZERO and Bristorm LP will protect perimeters, whilst the Impeder Bollards coupled with their aesthetic sleeves can be used around and within the premises for consistent counter terror protection.
