The guide, available from, also details security standards such as PAS 68 and points to consider before investing in perimeter protection.

Jonathan Goss, managing director of Concrete Barriers HQ, said: “We’ve seen a disturbing increase in the use of vehicles in attacks targeting civilians in the UK and across Europe, making effective perimeter security more important than ever. To ensure security infrastructure installed on streets and around buildings to improve safety and deter malicious is attacks is effective as possible, those investing in the installations need to have access to detailed information.

“They need to know about the different options available to them, key security considerations underpinning any perimeter protection installation and the importance of industry quality standards such as PAS 68. Ultimately having this information will ensure that perimeter security installations specified are as effective as possible and have the capability to provide a robust deterrent to security threats.

“The purpose of this guide it to make this vital information freely available to anyone looking to gather more information about perimeter security.”
