ZoneGuard PLUS – Heathrow Airport
A section of new perimeter fencing has been installed increasing security at the UK’s largest airport.
The new hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) fence at Heathrow Airport will provide protection against the potential event of a vehicle-borne attack.
Leading UK safety barrier supplier, Hardstaff Barriers, worked alongside partner Fernden Fencing, to install the steel ZoneGuard PLUS HVM system, a combined crash-tested barrier and fence solution tested to PAS 68 and IWA 14.1.
The system was installed on-site swiftly, thanks to the unique features of the combined barrier with fence system. The components of the ZoneGuard PLUS and fence are all fabricated and assembled off-site ensuring minimal on-site build time.
The ZoneGuard PLUS solution offers unique features as a crash-tested HVM barrier, the system offers a solution for both pedestrian and vehicle access gates within the barrier run.
