Floorbox has added Hesco’s Terrablock products to its high security portfolio, delivering surface mounted barrier technology to the live events market.
Terra block is the proven product of Hesco’s multi-million pound investment and can stop a 15,000lb truck travelling at up to 50mph in its tracks.
Available in a range of formats, Terrablock is a combination of an integrated vehicle barrier and a climb resistant weldmesh panel.
Flat-packed for delivery, Terrablock XL units measure 1.2m high, 1.2m wide and 2.12m long. A trained crew can close off a 30-foot wide carriageway with the system in just 40 minutes.
John Davy, founder and managing director of Floorbox, comments: “Hesco’s primary focus is protecting NATO forces around the world, defending critical infrastructure. Terrablock has gone through such rigorous testing – it’s the perfect means to protect the ingress and egress at football matches and live events at a time when any vehicle can be a weapon.”
Adam Wilding-Webb, director of high security at Hesco, adds: “Having successfully deployed our security barriers at the London 2012 Olympics, five-years of development has seen the system evolve in response to new challenges. It’s a unique solution, integrating earth-filled vehicle barriers and weldmesh panels.
“Terrablock is designed to be rapidly installed across diverse environments and through our relationship with Floorbox we can now supply the system to live events in response to an ever changing threat.”
