Safetyflex Barriers excited to unveil solar powered crash gate at International Security Expo

September 15, 2021

Coventry-based Safetyflex Barriers will unveil a new crash-rated, solar-powered hydraulic raising arm gate at the International Security Expo at Olympia London on 28-29 September.

The company has a stand at the flagship event in the security sector which will bring together government and other end users with manufacturers and suppliers.

Safetyflex’s vertically opening gate is one of the few products of its kind on the market to be surface mounted and requires no ground fixings or power source. It is crash-tested to IWA-14 standard to stop a 7.5 tonne truck, and can be installed in four hours as a permanent solution or at temporary events.

The HVM gate was tested at the world-leading Horiba-Mira testing ground just a few miles from the company’s headquarters in Coventry and is also available as a battery powered, vertically opening gate and as a manually operated swing gate.

Visitors to the International Security Expo will also get their first look at Safetyflex’s new fully automated crash-rated ‘coffin’ bollard which can be operated from a control panel or remotely by an app downloaded to a mobile device. It has also been crash-tested to IWA-14 standard to stop a 7.5 tonne truck and has a shallow foundation.

The company has secured an opportunity to exclusively showcase its new products at two scheduled presentations that will take place across the two-day show as part of a programme of events that will also include mini-conferences and seminars.

Marcus Gerrard, Director of Safetyflex Barriers, said: “The International Security Expo is our first opportunity for almost two years to mix face-to-face on this kind of scale with contacts and potential customers in the security sector.

“In today’s HVM marketplace, the majority of gates require foundations, but while shows like this have not been able to happen due to restrictions, our research and development has continued at a pace and after major investment we are able to add a surface-mounted gate to our range. Perhaps more significantly, it is also our first fully automated product that is solar powered.

“Our new products will further enhance our reputation as one of the most innovative suppliers to the global security sector with our HVM solutions now installed in almost 20 countries in Europe and around the world.”
