Considerations need to be made for both the passenger facing terminals and also the airside buildings and perimeter. Security measures need to ensure that only authorised vehicles are allowed to access airside roadways. The ability to search encroaching vehicles also needs to be facilitated where necessary.
Passengers and terminals need to be protected from a potential terrorist attack as well as accidental vehicle impact. Security measures must not deter travellers or visitors but must blend into the surrounding environment.
Multiple security barriers can be integrated into one system to achieve a specific security objective. These barriers can also be designed to work with additional security features or man guarding.
Airport sites are traditionally vast with many security objectives ensuring passengers, workers and visitors are safe at all times. This normally requires a complex mix of systems and physical barriers. ATG has secured multiple large airport sites internationally and would be happy to go through your specific airport security objectives.
For anyone who has seen the Jewel Changi Airport, they will instantly recognise it as a miracle of modern design. In 2016, we were brought on to the project to provide hostile vehicle mitigation for the Jewel complex.
International airports have been identified by counter-terrorism police and governments globally as critical national infrastructure. Working with our American partner, we helped secure LAX Airport with over 1000 shallow mount bollards.
