In our previous post we showed how security barriers by TSP Projects help prevent fatalities in acts that can seriously injure or harm the public. In August 2018, another attack hit the city of London, this time outside the Houses of Parliament. Whilst the perpetrator of the attack is yet to stand trial, the motivation behind the events outside the Houses of Parliament is currently being treated as an act of terrorism.
These barriers, based on the re-deployable HVM products currently supplied by TSP Projects Security Sector, performed exactly as expected bringing the threat vehicle to a dead stop. The effectiveness of the system highlights the importance of properly designed and implemented hostile vehicle mitigation measures in order to protect critical national infrastructure and crowded places.
Once the crime scene had been cleared, the vehicle removed, and, the barriers inspected for damage, all it took was a new coat of paint to return the impacted gate back full to operation! The range of Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) products offered by TSP Projects Ltd.’s Security Sector have been developed over more than a decade as part of a CPNI run programme to encourage industry to provide independently tested product with defined performance ratings.
The TSP Projects range of redeployable HVM products have been subjected to both vehicle impact testing under PAS68 and blast categorisation tests conducted by independent bodies.
