Heald HT1-Matador in Security Excellence Awards Final
Finalists in the Security Excellence Awards
Heald are delighted to announce that we have been selected as finalists in the Counter-Terrorism Solution of the Year category at the 2013 Security Excellence Awards for our innovative surface mount Matador bollard system.
Approaching its fifteenth year, the Security Excellence Awards has consistently broken new ground in highlighting the very best people, projects and processes that the UK’s security sector has to offer.
Heald’s PAS68 tested Matador bollards are slowly revolutionising the world of perimeter security. The Matador offers an extremely high level of security combined with an unobtrusive appearance and rapid, low impact fitting. Its surface mount technology means that it is perfect for temporary sites where security cannot be compromised, as well as situations where the imposing facade of a more traditional Roadblocker has too much visual impact. Its unique sliding opening not only allows for the possibility of surface mount but also ensures that the bollards remain visible to the user at all times, unlike traditional automated rising bollards. Achieving zero penetration and zero dispersion during PAS68 testing the Matador presents a truly formidable defence against hostile vehicle attack.
Already this year the Matador has been recognised with the Highly Commended award at the ADS Annual Security Innovation Awards in March and won the Commended Category for Best Physical Security Innovation at the Counter Terror Expo Excellence Awards in May.
After over 25 years in business, Heald remains constantly at the forefront of innovation and quality in the perimeter security industry. This nomination is a testament to the hard work and talent of our dedicated team of designers and engineers.
