UK Counter Terror Security

Protecting British freedoms and the UK way of life has never been more critical – or difficult.

After a spate of terrorist attacks on the continent, Metropolitan Police chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe said a UK terror attack is “highly likely” and remains a case of “when, not if”.

Worse still, there are more than 3,000 UK extremists on a Police watch list.

How then do we ensure the safety of the general public and our iconic buildings by delivering effective UK counter terror security?

UK counter terror security measures

Terrorists look for weaknesses in our security provision, so the key is to close the net on opportunity.

Bolstering perimeter security and creating visual deterrents from threats such as vehicle borne attack achieves this result quickly and cost-effectively.

UK terror security blocks

With the ability to stop a 7.5 tonne truck travelling at 40 mph, dead in its tracks – Counter Terror security blocks are highly effective at preventing attacks on commercial buildings and public spaces.

Blocks can be designed either to enhance the urban environment by providing stylish seating or to act as an obvious visible deterrent. Coupled with PAS 68 rated bollards they deliver formidable perimeter protection.

We have designed, manufactured and installed counter terror security solutions for the following high profile projects any many more:

  • East Midlands Airport
  • Tower of London
  • Gunwharf Quays
