PSSA member Rosehill Security has announced a distribution agreement with ARX Perimeters (ARX) that will make its innovative range of hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) barriers and perimeter security products available in the US market for the first time.
Specialising in the provision of layered perimeter protection for events and critical infrastructure, Illinois-based ARX will expand its range of mobile perimeter solutions to include Rosehill Security’s Impakt Defender and Rapid Defender vehicle security barriers (VSB), Ballistic Blocks and Anti-Trespass Panels. Under the terms of the agreement, ARX will have exclusive rights within both the direct sales and hire markets.
“We’re excited to get started and grow the profile of Rosehill Security in the US together. Everyone at ARX is passionate about offering the best solutions to meet our clients’ needs, so Rosehill Security’s perimeter security products are an excellent addition to our current product range. Above all else, if it means that we can protect more people from vehicle as a weapon attacks on a larger scale across America, then this agreement will prove invaluable,” said Ben Shipper, President at ARX.
Manufactured from 100% recycled rubber, bonded with polyurethane for strength, Rosehill Security’s surface mounted Rapid and Impakt Defenders can be installed almost anywhere, from cambered road surfaces surrounding stadiums to uneven festival sites. Their unique modular design enables them to be integrated with other mobile perimeter and high-security fence systems, creating additional layers of protection that can be vital in today’s ever-changing security climate.
Additionally, both VSBs can be deployed with Rosehill Security’s pedestrian and vehicle portals to create single or multiple access points without compromising the perimeter’s integrity. These portable modular portals are designed with speed of installation in mind, making them ideal for short-term deployment at temporary events.
“While vehicle borne attacks continue to pose a significant threat across the world, it’s more important than ever to consider HVM measures within physical security planning, particularly at events that attract large fluid crowds. The speed and ease with which our products can be deployed makes them an ideal addition to ARX’s existing product range. We’re delighted to be partnering with a dynamic company like ARX as we look to establish Rosehill Security and its products across the Atlantic,” said Dalton Marshall, Sales Manager at Rosehill Security.
