As the world reacts to the growing threat of motor vehicles being used in terrorist attacks local & state governments are now tasked with how best to protect people in public spaces.
In the past the logical solution was to install certified crash rated specialised products. These solutions take time to plan and install, are normally very expensive and often result in a fortress style atmosphere.
A new alternative currently being suggested from Security Agencies is to take a more simple approach by Stopping Vehicles Gaining Entry.
Engineered Street furniture elements strategically positioned deny vehicle access and provide a more economically engineered solution. LEDA’s Street Furniture range has been designed with Security and Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) as the main criteria.
However, when there is no option than to install certified bollards LEDA have also designed methods and products to disguise HVM bollards while making the site more aesthetically attractive.
