Floorbox has added Hesco TERRABLOCK products to its high security portfolio, delivering surface mounted barrier technology to the live events market.
TERRABLOCK® is the proven product of Hesco’s multi-million pound investment and rigorous testing. It stops a 15,000 lb truck travelling at up to 50mph in its tracks.
Available in a range of formats, TERRABLOCK® is a combination of an integrated vehicle barrier and a climb resistant weldmesh panel.
Flat-packed for delivery, TERRABLOCK® XL units are 1.2m high, 1.2m wide and 2.12m long. A trained crew can close off a 30ft wide carriageway with the system in just 40 minutes.
TERRABLOCK’s modular design means upgrades are simple in the event of a changing threat level.
John Davy, Floorbox Founder/Managing Director, comments: “Hesco’s primary focus is protecting NATO forces around the world, defending critical infrastructure. TERRABLOCK® has gone through such rigorous testing it’s the perfect means to protect the ingress and egress at football matches and live events at a time when any vehicle can be a weapon.”
Adam Wilding-Webb, Hesco’s Director of High Security, says: “Having successfully deployed our security barriers at the London 2012 Olympics, five-years of development has seen the system evolve in response to new challenges. It’s a unique solution, integrating earth-filled vehicle barriers and weldmesh panels.
“TERRABLOCK® is designed to be rapidly installed across diverse environments and through our relationship with Floorbox we can now supply the system to live events in response to an ever changing threat.”
