ROBUST VSB PROTECTION FOR PEOPLE, BUILDINGS & INFRASTRUCTURE
Designed and manufactured by Rosehill, a specialist in innovative recycled rubber perimeter security products and ballistic solutions, Impakt Defender is an IWA14-rated vehicle security barrier (VSB) that protects people, buildings and infrastructure from hostile vehicle attacks.
The number of hostile vehicle attacks that have taken place at both events and in prominent city locations have highlighted the need to not only make places safer, but also to make people feel safer. Often that’s more than a temporary need and requires a robust, longer term solution to deliver a physical and visual deterrent to such attacks. Impakt Defender provides that effective deterrent.
With a unique shape and large footprint, Impakt Defender sends out a clear message to would-be attackers that a place or event is protected. The system is manufactured from 100% recycled rubber, which is bonded with polyurethane for added strength. Its unique design and rubber construction deform on impact to increase stopping performance, delivering excellent protection from vehicle borne attacks with a solution that is 65% lighter than concrete alternatives.
Comprised of 460kg solid rubber units, each measuring 1m x 1m x 1m, the surface-mounted system requires no foundations and is connected by steel securing cables. The modular design allows installation in a linear or curved configuration to provide free-standing protection almost anywhere, and the system can be moved, reconfigured and re-used to respond to evolving threats.
Suitable for all types of site, the Impakt Defender provides rapid deployment and robust protection as either a temporary or permanent security measure, as part of a robust hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) strategy.
