Perimeter Protection Specialist Rosehill Security Confirms Partnership with Damasec for Denmark and Sweden
Rosehill Security today announced a product distribution agreement for Denmark and Sweden with Damasec Global Group for the company’s innovative range of hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) barriers and perimeter security products.
To address the growing need to protect crowded spaces and perimeters in light of recent vehicle borne attacks worldwide, Denmark-based Damasec has added Rosehill Security’s range of perimeter security solutions to its product portfolio. Damasec’s exclusive distribution rights will allow the company to distribute Rosehill Security’s products to clients with a wide range of HVM and perimeter security requirements throughout Denmark and Sweden.
“While our company’s core purpose is to ensure the safety and protection of people and infrastructure, it is also our aim to become the most trusted supplier of specialist security products and services worldwide. We are pleased to partner with Rosehill Security as an advocate and exclusive distributor of their products, as it will allow us to provide our clients with effective and inventive HVM and perimeter security systems while supplementing our existing product range,” said Henrik Færch, CEO at Damasec Global Group.
The agreement extends to Rosehill Security’s full product range, which includes the Impakt Defender and Rapid Defender vehicle security barriers (VSB) and Ballistic Blocks.
Manufactured from 100% recycled rubber, bonded with polyurethane for strength, Rosehill Security’s robust Rapid and Impakt Defenders require no foundations and can be installed almost anywhere, removed and reused as required.
Made up of units weighing 49kg each, the Rapid Defender temporary VSB has been specifically designed to be manually installed in minutes to protect people at events from vehicle as a weapon attacks. Requiring no special tools or lifting equipment, a four man team can manually install a 15m barrier in under five minutes.
The much larger, IWA 14-rated Impakt Defender has been designed for temporary, semi-permanent and permanent applications, providing the flexibility to protect both entrance areas and site perimeters against hostile vehicle attack. Each 430kg solid rubber unit is connected by steel securing cables or rods to create a barrier capable of stopping heavy vehicles travelling at 48kph.
Engineered using the same manufacturing process, Rosehill Security’s interlocking, T-shape Ballistic Blocks are used to construct temporary or permanent sangars and customised, heavy-duty perimeter structures, providing ballistic protection to BS EN 1522/23. These structures can be combined with the Rapid and Impakt Defenders to create a holistic solution as part of a wider HVM strategy.
“Since Rosehill Security’s launch, the company has worked tirelessly to design and manufacture an innovative and effective range of HVM and perimeter security solutions to meet the evolving needs of our clients worldwide. Proactivity in providing protection against vehicle as a weapon attacks continues to be a high priority, so we are delighted to announce Damasec as our partner, ensuring access to a proven range of products for their clients. As specialists in the security industry, Damasec are equally passionate about Rosehill Security’s products and services, so this partnership is an exciting opportunity for both parties,” said Dalton Marshall, Sales Manager at Rosehill Security.
Lightweight barrier gives crowds rapid defence from vehicle attacks
Sports fans and festival goers will enjoy greater peace of mind from vehicle as a weapon (VAAW) attacks with the arrival of a new lightweight rapid-deploy vehicle security barrier (VSB).
The Rapid Defender temporary VSB was deployed in minutes to protect spectators and competitors from VAAW threat at the London Marathon and at football stadia and events the length and breadth of the country.
Rosehill Security, a leading global manufacturer of perimeter security solutions, has created the innovative hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) barrier, made up of robust units of recycled rubber weighing just 49kg each.
StadiumTM – a specialist event services supplier of traffic management, stewarding, security and training services to the events industry that protects crowds at Premier League and EFL clubs, festivals and city wide events,– is extolling its benefits.
Founder, owner and MD David McAtamney says: “We want to change the face of crowd safety through HVM barriers. The Rapid Defender makes this a reality because of its speed of deployment – our teams installed 13m of the barrier in just five minutes at the London Marathon!”
More than 150 people have died in 18 months of VAAW in cities from London to Manhattan and Melbourne – and just last week, Toronto.
Rosehill Security has designed the Rapid Defender specifically to provide protection for crowds of people from such attacks.
Sales manager Dalton Marshall says: “It is surface-mounted with no foundations, and weighs less than a third of comparable concrete barriers, so can be deployed in minutes almost anywhere, from the streets surrounding stadia to uneven festival sites.”
The 333mm-wide units are connected by 20mm diameter steel rods, creating an HVM barrier of any length. Four men can manually install a barrier across the width of a road in less than five minutes with no special tools or lifting equipment. It can then be removed and reused.
The Rapid Defender can be integrated with other temporary or permanent HVM systems to create a stronger physical barrier as part of an holistic HVM solution.
The Perimeter Security Suppliers Association (PSSA), to which Rosehill Security belongs, has just launched a new online source of help and information on HVM – the HVMHub – in conjunction with the Home Office’s Joint Security and Resilience Centre.
