Safety is always a primary concern, even in locales where aesthetics and architecture play a dominant role in landscaping. Places such as malls and town greens must be easily accessible for foot traffic and pose their own safety issues. When planning a layout for a major corporation or university campus, it’s easy to integrate permanent solutions to vehicular defense threats. Problems arise when security staff needs to make accommodations for areas where safety has been an afterthought.
Protecting people and property from vehicular threats would appear to be an easy task. Many buildings and roadways already have security measures in place, or rely on temporary solutions to fix permanent problems. Other areas might need to keep cars and trucks away from pathways mainly used for foot traffic but may still require vehicle access in emergencies or for maintenance work.
Unfortunately, public schools have become a target for violent activity, and security is a rising concern for parents and officials across the United States. Steps are being taken to reinforce elementary and secondary educational institutions, and new construction takes student and faculty safety as its primary concern.
As more incidents involving rogue drivers flood the news, security teams look for new ways to prevent an assault on their watch. Security measures are turning to temporary solutions to this protection problem. By incorporating high-security portable barricades, planners and police have better control over incursions while also creating access for pedestrians.
Depending on the circumstances, both portable barriers & permanent structures have benefits & disadvantages. Before opting for one choice over the other, here are a few things to consider when planning your perimeter. Contact Delta Scientific to learn more about how these devices can help both secure important areas.
The best kinds of safety systems are the ones that you never need to use, but when they are put to use, no matter what kind of impact your equipment has undergone, be it an attack or accident, proper removal and cleanup plans need to be in place. Contact Delta Scientific today to learn about effective maintenance and cleanup strategies, as well as advice on the best products for your security needs!
The security bollard is an effective & cost-efficient way to regulate traffic flow & prevent vehicular egress. Permanent bollards designed for ongoing protection or temporary structures meant as a placeholder. However, what is meant to be temporary can become permanent solution to a problem that has long since passed.
Petrochemical facilities produce & supply energy for much of the world, and create base materials for many of the products used today. Bollards help ensure the security, safety and uninterrupted operations of these facilities that are paramount for smooth running society. Bollards provide a critical link in the protection of the petrochemical industry.
Airports are not fortresses. In the early-morning hours of Feb. 3, 2019, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport suffered a perimeter breach, when an SUV crashed through a chain-link gate. That a vehicle was able to penetrate the perimeter at all is extremely troubling & preventable with the correct security measures.
New environments, rigorous schedules, new independence all contribute to making the transition to college difficult. With the rise in gun & vehicular violence, safety had become another, vastly more pervasive concern. A goal for any administration is to create an environment where staff & students feel safe on campus.
