Anti-Terrorism Barriers


Our client required secure entry to two of their main sites in Scotland and appointed C&S Group as lead contractor in the barrier installation.

We procured and installed 2 off Defender 941 Crash Rated Barriers and 3 off Standard 403 Automated Barriers.

  • The Defender Series 941 Barriers are heavy-duty vandal resistant dual beam vehicle barriers. The dual beams together with our fibre system provide strong mechanical characteristics and greater energy absorption on impact than a conventional barrier system. The barrier is used to control vehicular access in and out of high security controlled areas. They can be either installed on the perimeter of a site or further within the site. Whilst they are primarily intended for outdoor use, they can be used indoors in buildings such as warehouses. Various beam lengths are available from 3 metres to a maximum of 6 metres clear opening.
  • The Series 403 barriers are used to control vehicular access in and out of a controlled area of a site. They can be either installed on the perimeter of a site or further within the site. Whilst they are primarily intended for outdoor use, they can also be used indoors in buildings such as warehouses.

Installation included all ground works and cast barrier bases, all duct work and power/data cables being ran from source to barrier and tarring works to make good the site on completion of M&E works.

Overall we provided the client with an installation which matched their specification, at a cost which met their budget. The project was carried out in a professional manner working closely with the client to ensure that site H&S took top priority and alternative traffic management during installation phase communicated beforehand.
