Outdoor Events to be Made Safer with Revolution Security Innovation

A British-designed innovative road block system, which can withstand the force of a 2,500kg vehicle travelling at 30 mph, is now available to help protect the public from future terrorist attacks.

Surface Guard has been developed by the world’s leading innovator of road blocker, bollard and vehicle barrier systems, ATG Access, and is the first system of its kind to protect pedestrians from targeted vehicle attacks.

Recent attacks, targeting pedestrians at Nice, the Berlin Christmas Markets and more recently at Westminster and London Bridges have highlighted the need for event security to be ramped up. The new surface guard system has been designed to deter vehicular attacks, but to also prevent and immobilise hostile vehicles that do attempt an attack.

Tested to the IWA 14 standard, the surface guard system has successfully arrested a 2,500kg vehicle travelling at 30 mph.

Modular in design and compact and easy to store, this system is lightweight and quick to deploy. Unlike many traditional barriers, no heavy machinery is required to install the system - four men can close off a roadway using the surface guard system in under an hour. When the system is no longer required, it is even quicker to remove and causes no damage to the road surface as no anchoring is required.

Supplied in individual units, each section of the barrier can be stacked to make transportation and storage very easy.

Rather than creating a ‘fortress feel’, the surface guard has been designed to complement its surroundings and allow pedestrians to flow freely into the designated area. Whilst being aesthetically attractive, the system provides a resilient deterrent.

Mark Clegg, managing director of ATG Access, said: “The shocking terrorist attacks, which have happened at public events across the world have highlighted the need for security. Temporary events have always been difficult targets to protect.

“At ATG Access, we understand how difficult it can be for event organisers to protect against random vehicle attacks, which is why we have developed Surface Guard. Not only can it withstand ramming attacks from hostile vehicles, the robust perimeter security system can be deployed extremely quickly and also be removed just as easily once an event is over, without any surface damage.

“The Surface Guard System has also been designed to enable stakeholders to protect their venues and events without disrupting their operational patterns. The easy storage and modular design ensures that the product can be used in many locations with no special or bespoke engineering required. Rather than having to unnecessarily close down roads for days at a time, Surface Guard can be installed extremely quickly– this is a huge leap forward in the technology for the event security sector and helps keep operational disruption to a minimum.

“We believe that this innovation will prevent potential vehicle attacks, and will make it easier for organisers of temporary events to keep their attendees safe.”
