Hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) security should be one of the primary issues that businesses should have deeply embed within their management processes and systems. Establishments are always a good target for vehicle-borne threats which can come in the form of vandalism or even through aggressive attacks from a determined terrorist or criminal. The bulk together with the mobility of a vehicle can be conveniently used as a weapon for malicious individuals and even as a delivery mechanism for explosives. This is where hostile vehicle mitigation comes in.
HVM or hostile vehicle mitigation is a tactic with the primary goal being to prevent hostile individuals from breaching a perimeter successfully or completing a criminal act and accomplishing their purpose. This type of system is ideal for use in establishments, crowded public spaces and even in utility plants.
Security Measures for Hostile Vehicle Mitigation
There are various security measures that can be used for HVM to reduce the vulnerability of an area from vehicle-borne threats. This equipment is important because they can help stop or minimise casualties in case of malicious activities.
Barricades: Barriers & Blockers
At Ezi Security, we provide a range of high-quality security gates
that have been crash tested and are capable of providing maximum security for very sensitive entry or exit points from vehicle threats. Any unauthorised entry from hostile vehicles will result in the complete destruction of its chassis if it attempts to force its way through these gates.
We also offer a family of durable bollards
that are designed to allow entry for pedestrians while stopping vehicle traffic from moving past. We have attractive designs for our barricades that are ideal for use in inner-city surroundings and even for traffic management.
Our new generation of crash fences
are made to protect perimeters from accidental, terrorist or criminal attacks from malicious individuals. The fencing products we offer are designed for the purpose of Hostile Vehicle Mitigation and have passed various tests to prove this. These barriers are specially designed having a shallow foundation and could be installed directly on soft ground if needed.
It is possible to have these installed in short and long runs, being capable of stopping even a 7,200-kilogram truck running at 80kph.
Vehicle Security Gates
We also provide vehicle gates
that are designed to withstand impact from vehicles weighing as much as 7,500 kilograms running at 40mph to 50mph. The patented arrestor system for our gates can give you the lowest penetration classification for its class with a shallow foundation which makes for a great engineering solution for protection against HMV.
We also have high-performance impact resistant security gates that are placed fully above ground in the form of our TruckStopper products. These barricades are designed to obstruct both vehicles and pedestrians and can provide as much as 3.5 metre to 6-metre opening spans. Our TruckStoppers have been tested successfully for various impacts including a 7.5-tonne truck that ran at 82 kph. There are also various versions and features available for the TruckStopper.
