At Highway Care we live and breathe safety and our mission to keep people and places safer is one we share with our event security partner, Crowdguard. That’s why the two companies are sharing a stand – D100 – at International Security Expo at Olympia London 26-27 September again this year, and why we are both excited about showcasing an innovative new solution to anyone who comes to see us at the show.
Crowdguard is our #HVM deployment partner for #RB50 and #Claw, and both companies are keen to leverage our knowledge and contacts to continue building our commitment to offering proportionate protection in partnership, aligned to the identified risk, operational requirements and commercial considerations. We both have a proven track record of scouring the market globally to look for high performance, versatile and proven HVM and perimeter protection products, which has led us to the addition of a brand new innovation to our shared stand this year. We are introducing FairGuard – a new temporary HVM system, manufactured in Europe by VSV Access Barriers, and we’re looking forward to your feedback on the product and whether you’d like us to make it available as part of the Highway Care and Crowdguard portfolio.
As Deborah Ainscough, Founder and Director of Crowdguard explains: “We’re looking forward to talking to #ISE23 delegates on stand D100 about what protecting in partnership means to us, and about the HVM solutions we offer from Highway Care Security, as part of our wide range of temporary, semi-permanent and permanent security solutions. We will have a 3D model of the Claw available to show delegates how this effective and IWA 14-1 rated drop-and-go barrier works, as well as explaining the rapid deployment and versatility benefits of RB50 and many more rated HVM solutions. The show is the first time FairGuard has been available to view by UK security professionals and event organisers, and we can’t wait to find out what everyone thinks.”
Ben Duncker, Commercial Director of Highway Care Security adds: “VSV Access Barriers is an established Highway Care partner and we’re excited that FairGuard’s first UK outing will be on the Highway Care /Crowdguard stand at ISE. We’re keen for you to take a look and let us know what you think because – as anyone who’s ever been involved in product development or procurement knows – user feedback is integral to developing market-ready solutions. And in the counter terrorism and security sector, selecting the right solutions for each and every project – aligned to risk, operational considerations and commercial factors – is critical to keeping people and places safer.”
So, what you can expect from the FairGuard system when you come to take a look at stand D100?
FairGuard is an innovative new temporary HVM system designed to combine robust construction with ease, speed, and consistency of installation. Composed of highly resilient steel, which delivers strength three times greater than conventional structural steel, FairGuard can be installed in just a few minutes by trained technicians, thanks to its ingenious modular design, and it is scalable with ease for a wide variety of applications.
A pedestrian permeable HVM solution, FairGuard is designed to protect against vehicle attacks while allowing pedestrians, parents with strollers, wheelchair users, and cyclists to move into and out of the protected area unhindered. The compact system offers a low maintenance and tamper-resistant solution, and has achieved varied certification including IWA 14-1: 2013 (V/7200[N2A]/48/90:13.4), PAS 60: 2013 (V/7500 (N2)/48/90:13.2/9.7), and DIN SPEC 91414-1:2021 MK1.
