Showcasing our new addition: Hostile Vehicle Mitigation barriers

Posted on 26th October 2017 by Stadium Grp.

Yesterday saw the StadiumTM team travel to Anfield to demonstrate a new addition to our current services portfolio, the Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) barrier. Known also as ‘The Surface Guard’ which is manufactured by ATG Access who aided in the presentation of the new addition. Those who attended the presentation and demonstration came from Premiership football clubs, anti-terrorism associations, local police forces and the SGSA (Sports Ground Safety Authority). Our Managing Director, David McAtamney and HR Director, Lorraine Baillie presented what we as a company do and how we can provide you with this new innovative product.

In recent times traffic and pedestrian control at events has become paramount and at the forefront of the minds of event organisers. These barriers are unique and prove this is an issue that can be alleviated by such a product. Current methods of road blockades hinder pedestrian flow and require man power in numbers, this impacting cost effectiveness.

The barrier is a modular design concept and can be easily assembled by a fully-trained team, which we as a company have and would be able to provide for your needs. The barrier mitigation team yesterday did excellent work and placed in 14m of barrier in just over 20 minutes!
