With summer events on the increase, temporary security measures are relied
upon to assist the security services in managing crowd control and Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM).
H2S2, a JV between Highway Care and Hardstaff Barriers are responsible for deploying the National Barrier Asset (NBA) throughout multiple locations globally. The NBA is a range of high-security systems owned and managed by Sussex Police on behalf of the home office and provides a solution for robust Hostile Vehicle mitigation and crowd control required at high profile events and as part of an emergency response.
H2S2 together with the Sussex Police provide effective secure infrastructures to protect high profile events throughout the UK.

The system comprises of multiple gate variations, allowing free flowing traffic within the barrier that can be closed quickly to provide perimeter security to an event instantly. This allows simple installation prior to the event with limited disruption to the city. The barriers small footprint and modular sections enable deployment in even the tightest locations, perfect in some of London’s compact areas.
Some notable events in recent years have seen perimeter security deployed by H2S2 to protect a variety of sporting events such as the London Olympics and Wimbledon as well as High Security protection for the Remembrance services, NATO and G4 Summits.
