Offering versatile temporary protection for crowds at events and in high-traffic environments, Marshalls Landscape Protection’s RhinoGuard Steel GateKeeper can provide protection against vehicles of up to 2.5 tonnes, travelling at up to 30mph.
As a surface-mounted solution, with no requirements for anchorage, RhinoGuard Steel GateKeeper gives highway professionals, local authorities, landscape architects and specifiers complete flexibility when it comes to adopting temporary hostile vehicle mitigation measures. With no reliance on kerbing or structural aids, the lightweight solution, which is manufactured entirely in Britain, is perfect for short-term security at a wide range of events, such as sports matches, concerts and pop-up markets.
Successfully crash tested in accordance with the IWA 14.1 standard, the RhinoGuard Steel GateKeeper is an easily deployed, modular solution that can be lifted and installed by a team of four – thus reducing on-site labour requirements and limiting disruption during the installation and removal process. Similarly, the individual upright elements of the structure can be removed to allow immediate access for emergency service vehicles.
Whilst providing superior protection against hostile vehicles, whether from intentional attack or accidental collision, the RhinoGuard Steel GateKeeper solution is easily accessible for pedestrians. Additionally, it can be fitted witha retractable barrier tape to allow sections of the GateKeeper assembly to be closed or opened as required. For installations requiring vehicle access, drive over ramps can be installed to support vehicles weighing up to 40 tonnes and can be used with or without protective GateKeeper uprights.
Speaking about the solution, Jaz Vilkhu, Managing Director at Marshalls Landscape Protection commented: “As COVID-19 restrictions continue to ease, many of us are looking forward to socialising at large scale events again and our RhinoGuard Steel GateKeeper offers a quick and versatile solution to help ensure they can be conducted safely. The leading product offers complete flexibility – meaning local authorities and event organisers can protect buildings and spaces as required, without overly fortifying these areas when they are not in use.”
