Winner of the Counter Terror Awards - Physical Security Award, the Surface Guard barrier has been designed to provide temporary HVM (hostile vehicle mitigation) for stadiums, festivals, urban squares and VIP visits.
Supplied in individual units, each section is lightweight and able to be stacked completely flat making transportation very straightforward. The barrier system is compact, easy to store, lightweight, painless to transport, robust and effortless to install, making it the ideal temporary event security solution.
The system is completely surface mounted, modular and incorporates a number of innovative features which allows its deployment from lightweight vehicles in a very short period of time and to secure a multitude of different site scenarios. What sets the Surface Guard apart from other temporary HVM barriers is that can deal with road cambers and changes in levels as a result of curbs and traffic islands.
ATG Access has designed the system so that members of the public are protected without feeling that they are entering a fortress zone. Surface Guard is completely pedestrian and bicycle permeable; an additional vehicle access point can be added to allow authorised emergency service vehicles access in an emergency.
For additional value, the Surface Guard can be further accessorised with footfall counting devices, LED lighting and advertising/sponsorship or information panels further enhancing the benefit of installing these systems at your event.
Able to be fitted utilising a variety of anchoring methods which are subject to site survey. Anchors include permanent methods which can be installed if events are in the same location at multiple times each year or completely temporary, surface mounted methods where events are ‘one-off’ and in varying locations.
Polyurethane cover, supplied in light grey. Easy to stack and light-weight to store and carry. Can be vinyl wrapped to accommodate branding or sponsorship logos and designs.
Warning chevrons on the front cover panel to increase visibility.
The modularity of the system allows for a change in road level. This suits installations which need to run across a road and then a stepped pavement. This also allows for installation across a central reservation.
Lightweight, flexible, anti-slip in-fill panels. For the vehicular access point, the in-fill panels are constructed from mild-steel to cope with high axle loadings.
Approach ramp with anti-slip matting allowing easy access through the system for cyclists, wheelchairs, prams and walking aids. The standard depth of the ramp is 450 mm. This can be shortened or elongated if required.
Successfully tested to the IWA 14 impact test standard, the Surface Guard system has been tested twice. The Surface Guard successfully stopped a 2,500 kg vehicle travelling at 30 mph and a 7,200 kg vehicle travelling at 32 kph.
