Blockers


High levels of security are important in all aspects of life. In particular, public places and buildings which contain valuables or large numbers of people have to be protected in appropriate ways. This is to avoid any problems or security weaknesses from occurring. At ConcreteBarriersHQ this is exactly the type of thing we deal with by manufacturing systems specifically designed with security in mind. Our range of products has some of the finest qualities that are currently available in the UK market and includes a selection of different barriers, bollards and blockers.

Blockers are very popular and can be found outside most buildings where the public visit and work. You will notice they completely protect the area from any potential vehicle damage while still looking as though they are naturally part of the building's overall design. A CT Block is a popular form of blocker. Made with a mix of steel and natural stone aggreagates they create a reinforced bollard that works and looks beautifully constructed. They are easily installed in an area of any size within the tightest of timescales. Work normally takes place on concrete, paved or tarmac ground but does not require any high costing foundations like other types of security bollards. One major benefit of shallow foundations is that none of the pipes and other utilities beneath are affected by the installation.

We take testing of our products very seriously and make it our priority through every stage of production. We follow PAS 68 safety standards and keep up to date with the changes that are made with regards to regulations. The process involves performing impact tests on the blockers to ensure they are working correctly. Different vehicle speeds have to be tested and the results recorded in order to cover every possible scenario that can occur with regards to forcefully entering a forbidden area. The immobilisation of the vehicle is also tested to create a perimeter security system that is inpenetrable around any type of public building or any other location where pedestrians are normally found.

We take pride in our products and are constantly looking for ways to improve them. It has become our speciality to create products designed with security first but also taking into consideration the way they look. By making them more visually attractive and sympathetic to their surroundings they can be more popular than other types of security. The idea behind this is to not make you not think about danger when you see them but to offer protection discreetly.As well as providing security protection they can also be used to show visitors the correct way to go if they are in an unfamiliar area and need guidance. In open space areas near buildings the blockers can be used as seating areas which is a great way to save costs and add protection at the same time.

The installation process couldn't be simpler. Once the perimeter area for protection has been agreed, work can begin immediately on the area and any obstacles can be worked around. Making your building look as aesthetically pleasing as it possible can while at the same time being as secure as possible is always the goal we have. A worthwhile investment for any business, you can be sure you will see the benefits long into the future. For such a critical product the prices are very competitive, esecially when you take into account the relatively low installation costs compared to alternative systems.What makes us stand out is the way our products can protect you and look as though they are naturally part of the surroundings.

We are so proud of the job we do and all the clients we have completed projects for. Places like Titanic Belfast visitor centre and Manchester Airport Group have both benefited immensely from our services.If you would like more information from ConcreteBarriersHQ you can call our friendly team on 01623 513 355 who are willing to answer questions you have and hope to help you in the way you are looking for.
