Rosehill Security's rubber barrier prevents vehicle borne attacks
A security company that provides rubber security barriers to protect entrances and site perimeters against vehicle borne attacks has joined Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative.
Rosehill Security, of West Yorkshire, has had two of its innovative engineered Impakt Defender surface mounted polymer barriers accredited by SBD.
The one metre length, large footprint barriers, which are connected by steel securing cables, address ‘hostile vehicle mitigation’, particularly in high threat environments, which could range from a public car park through to a large-scale oil refinery.
The barriers will deform on impact to increase stopping performance and then reform, to be used again. They are capable of bringing to a stop a heavy vehicle travelling at 48km/hr.
Manufactured in the UK from 100% recycled rubber bonded with polyurethane for strength, their tough construction enables them to be deployed rapidly as temporary or permanent perimeter measures without any need for foundations.
Rosehill Security also provides a range of ballistic solutions for indoor and outdoor ranges and live fire shoot houses, including anti-ricochet tiles for walls and floors and bullet absorbent ballistic building blocks.
The company is a division of Rosehill Polymers Group, a leading polyurethane systems manufacturer, specialising in the development and manufacture of elastomers and engineered rubber products.
Rosehill Security Managing Director, Alex Celik, said: “With civil protection authorities and businesses across the world continuing to seek improved safety measures to protect people, buildings and infrastructure, our specially designed Impakt Defender barriers can be used as part of a comprehensive security strategy to combat criminal or terrorist attack.” He added: “They are quick and easy to install, and remove, compared to other solutions.”
Michael Brooke, Development Officer, SBD, said: “Rosehill Security operate in a number of business areas but have joined us with this very clever vehicle impact barrier system. We look forward to working with them.”
