Prestigious installation in London for anti-terrorist bollard manufacturer


"This is a very prestigious location in the heart of the capital and an anti-terrorist bollard that did not look too imposing and overbearing was a key requirement."
Marcus Gerrard



A Coventry company at the forefront of securing high-profile locations around the world from terrorist vehicle attacks has completed another prestigious project in London.

Safetyflex Barriers won the contract to install hundreds of its award-winning Truckstopper anti-terrorist bollards in the Tower Bridge area of the capital.

The innovative design and aesthetic appearance of the bollards, capable of stopping a very large truck travelling at high speed whilst also impacting less on the street scene, was key to landing the contract.

Marcus Gerrard, director at Safetyflex Barriers, said: “We are incredibly proud to be helping to secure more of London from the threat of terrorist vehicle attacks with this latest installation in the Tower Bridge area.

“This is a very prestigious location in the heart of the capital and an anti-terrorist bollard that did not look too imposing and overbearing was a key requirement.

“Our slimline Truckstopper bollards were the ideal choice due to the innovative design which has a slimline appearance whilst using specialist steel to absorb high impact.”

One of the company’s first major projects was protecting 22 venues for the London 2012 Olympics and since then its bollards have been installed in towns and cities across the UK, Europe and further afield including the US and Australia.

Other installations by Safetyflex Barriers in London have included Horse Guards Parade, Canary Wharf, and more recently, the famous Broadway Market in Hackney.

Safetyflex Barriers is one of the UK’s leaders, in supplying anti-terrorist bollards, to stadiums, public realm projects, city centres, and other key areas that require protection, from vehicle attacks.

The firm is experiencing a rise in demand for its unique anti-terrorist bollard and crash-rated street furniture - which looks aesthetically pleasing – unlike the old-style bollards that have deep foundations, and are very large and overbearing.

The company has also designed a new ultra-shallow bollard to specifically protect London’s bridges which earlier this year were successfully crash tested to industry standards to stop an 18-tonne vehicle.
