SPORTS STADIUM INVESTS IN SAFETY AS OUR RISE-AND-FALL KERB MAKES ITS DEBUT

24/04/17

As with any high profile venue which brings thousands of people together, safety is always the top priority when you operate one of the UK’s leading sports stadia.

That’s why recently a top Midlands football club contacted Securiscape to request that a series of cast-iron bollards protecting its glass-fronted reception area be upgraded to prevent a vehicle-borne attack.

The request would also involve the installation of a defence mechanism which could prevent unwanted vehicles from entering the stadium through a service entrance beneath one of the stands, where maintenance staff and workers maintaining the pitch are granted access for their machinery.

Over a two-week installation programme, our installers first removed the stadium’s existing bollards and replaced them 21 PAS 68-rated steel bollards, all finished in a smart flat-topped shroud painted to match the stadium’s colour scheme.

Protection for the service entrance, just around the corner, was provided through the first-ever installation of our manual rise and fall blockout kerb.

The most cost-efficient product of its type on the market, our kerbs are designed and manufactured by Securiscape and have been rigorously tested to the PAS 68:2010 standard at renowned test facility MIRA.

Perfect for locations where there is no electricity supply, the kerbs can be lowered to ground level to enable a vehicle to pass through the access point and then raised into position afterwards, presenting an impregnable barrier for unwelcome visitors seeking unauthorised access to the stadium – and all in less than 10 seconds.

For extra convenience and to save time, they are designed to be surface-mounted, although are also available as a cassette system.

Mark Stone, managing director of Securiscape, said: “Football stadia are extremely high profile venues and they cannot afford to compromise on the safety of their staff and the many thousands of spectators who gather there on match days.

“This was the reason why the football club sought to upgrade its cast-iron bollards, which would simply shatter if impacted by a vehicle, to our high security PAS 68 products and also to protect its busy service entrance.

“Located beneath a stand without a power supply, the entrance was the perfect opportunity for us to debut our rise and fall blockout kerb.”
