Vehicle-borne threats range from vandalism to sophisticated, targeted attacks. The aim of installing physical security measures to protect a building is to reduce the number of causalities should an incident ever occur.
It is very difficult to completely prevent an isolated vehicle bomb attack. By creating a secure perimeter away from the main building you can create stand-off which reduces the effect of a blast to infrastructure quite considerably. This then reduces the number of potential causalities.
Security measures do not have to be unattractive or create an unwelcoming atmosphere. The aesthetics of security measures can be designed to fit into the existing built environment. Products can be incorporated into other necessary street furniture items such as stair handrails, lighting columns and even benches.
