Rosehill Security, the perimeter security product manufacturer, has announced a product distribution agreement for Denmark and Sweden with Damasec Global Group for the company’s range of hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) barriers and perimeter products.
Denmark-based Damasec has added Rosehill’s range of perimeter security to its portfolio. Damasec’s exclusive distribution rights will allow the company to distribute Rosehill’s products to clients with HVM and perimeter security requirements in Denmark and Sweden.
Henrik Færch, CEO at Damasec Global Group said: “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.”
The agreement covers Rosehill’s full product range, which includes the Impakt Defender and Rapid Defender vehicle security barriers (VSB) and Ballistic Blocks.
Made from 100 per cent recycled rubber, bonded with polyurethane for strength, Rosehill’s Rapid and Impakt Defenders require no foundations and can be installed almost anywhere, removed and reused as required, the makers say.
Made up of units weighing 49kg each, the Rapid Defender temporary VSB has been designed to be manually installed in minutes to protect events (pictured; outside Portman Road, the home of Championship football club Ipswich Town) 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 manufacturer adds.
The much larger, IWA 14-rated Impakt Defender has been designed for temporary, semi-permanent and permanent applications, for use at 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, according to the makers.
Engineered using the same manufacturing process, Rosehill’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.
Dalton Marshall, Sales Manager at Rosehill said: “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.”
