Counter terror security

At Concrete Barriers HQ it is our mission to protect the general public from speeding vehicles by supplying high quality perimeter security solutions that protect public spaces.

To tackle the increasing threat of vehicle borne terrorism, we offer a range of counter terror security products designed to keep people and vehicles safely separate:

CT blocks

CT Block

Counter terror blocks are purpose built to stop speeding vehicles by providing an engineered concrete barrier that protects pedestrians and buildings. Tested to meet rigorous PAS 68 standard specifications, counter terror blocks from Concrete Barriers HQ can stop a 7.5 tonne truck travelling at 40 mph with devastating efficiency. Counter terror blocks can be supplied in rugged concrete form to act as a visible and obvious deterrent. Alternatively, they can be specified with beautiful engineered Dekton and granite finishing to provide a visual finish for regenerated city centres. This kind of counter terror block can be further enhanced with the specification of wooden tops to provide additional, stylish, street seating.

CT bollards

CT Bollards

Designed to meet specifications set by the UK’s PAS 68 specification system, we offer a range of counter terror bollards that are tested and proven to stop a 7.5 tonne truck travelling at 50 mph with devastating effect. To the untrained eye counter terror bollards look exactly like standard street bollards, but they are engineered for the ultimate resistance. Counter terror or PAS 68 bollards ensure that speeding vehicles cannot access pedestrian areas to cause injury so if you have a high profile landmark, building or city centre zone to protect, there is very simply no more critical item of street furniture.

CT planters

Street planters are a versatile and architectural way to bring nature into urban spaces. Counter terror planters can act as effective barriers for high profile buildings, infrastructure or centres. Here at Concrete Barriers HQ we offer a wide range of counter terror planters in a range of finishes including wood, natural stone and stainless steel. In our view, PAS 68 planters are a great way of brightening up urban centres and providing security that doesn’t make the public feel like they’ve entered a security zone.

Temporary counter terror blocks

CT Sentry Blocks

We provide temporary concrete blocks specifically made for deployment at events. Our CT Sentry blocks can be installed quickly, easily and at late notice at concerts, festivals, carnivals or essentially any event that draws crowds to public or open spaces. These products are available for hire to boost public security. We provide a full and comprehensive advisory service to ensure blocks are correctly specified, placed and installed. This service is ideal for music festivals, food festivals and indeed craft ale festivals.
