Safetyflex Barriers has installed its Truckstopper bollards on Oxford Street in London’s West End. The company, launched in 2008, makes bollards in Coventry, in use at shopping centres, sport stadiums, government buildings, military, utilities and key infrastructure centres across the UK, USA, Singapore and Australia.
Marcus Gerrard, director at Safetyflex, said: “We are proud to have been able to assist in making London a safer place for the people and buildings that make it such a great place. It is vital in this day-and-age to have anti-terrorism measures in place and we have proven that our products are the best on the market. We have worked all over the world and are proud to be a leader in this crucial developing market.”
Safetyflex Barriers points to its anti-terrorist bollards made of specialist steel to absorb impact as aesthetically pleasing besides cost effective.
One of the company’s first major contracts saw the team work to protect 22 venues for the London 2012 Olympics and it has since worked across the UK. Other projects in London include Horse Guards Parade, Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge and the 2012 Olympic Park.
Marcus said: “We are seeing a lot of interest in our products from major cities across the world because of both their build quality and their aesthetic slim line appearance.
“Most anti-terrorist bollards are very large and overbearing, but our products have been designed to be the most slim line bollards in the world. They can be assembled quickly and have the power of larger bollards without the bulk thanks to the hard work that has gone into ensuring they are created to the highest specification possible. By always focusing on innovation and improvement, we are increasing security and safety in big cities quicker and in a more cost-effective way than ever before.”
