Heald have over thirty years’ experience in designing, manufacturing and installing security products such as bollards, road blockers and barriers. We protect some of the world’s most high profile locations against hostile vehicle attacks, with our client base including presidential buildings, palaces, stadia, government buildings, airports, shopping centres and much more.
Our barriers, bollards and road blockers play a vital role in the defence of vulnerable properties not only from terrorists, but also criminals and vandals. We constantly push the boundaries with ground-breaking new designs and are renowned for our exemplary in-house manufacturing.
We have a range of award-winning PAS 68, IWA and ASTM products, such as our Matador, which has revolutionised the perimeter security industry. The Matador is an automatic sliding bollard system that can halt a 7.2 tonne truck travelling at 64 kph (40 mph). Our Commander Road Blocker is also the world’s only security barrier PAS 68 tested to stop a 30 tonne truck travelling at 80 kph (50 mph).
Due to our world leading designs, all of our automated road blockers and bollards continue to function after impact in crash tests, thus ensuring ongoing protection, even before any repairs to sacrificial parts.
Heald place an emphasis on quality, reliability and service life and have units still in the field after more than 20 years reliable service and more being installed worldwide. Our full range of anti-terrorist security barriers also hold the Secured By Design licence of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).
Some of our hostile vehicle mitigation products include:
Heald’s Matador: A sliding bollard system available as one or two moving bollards with two fixed bollards. As the Matador can be surface mounted, it is perfect for temporary projects as well as long term projects.
Heald’s Commander: During crash testing, the Commander achieved a zero penetration result and remained fully operational afterwards.
Heald’s Raptor: This combines the high security of a road blocker with the flexibility of a shallow mounted bollard. The Raptor has been dual tested to PAS 68 and ASTM standards to halt a 7.5 tonne truck travelling at 80 kph (50 mph).
Heald’s Viper: A shallow mounted road blocker which due to its ingenious design requires an excavation depth of just 400 mm. Dual tested to PAS 68 and ASTM standards to halt a 7.5 tonne truck travelling at 80 kph (50 mph).
Heald’s IWA Evo Bollard: The bollard is strong enough to stop a 7.2 tonne truck travelling at 64 kph (40 mph). The Evo bollard can be operated manually, battery drill, electro mechanically or hydraulically.
Heald’s PAS 68 Road Blocker: Available in a range of heights, the PAS 68 Road Blocker is the perfect solution for security installations where a high profile deterrent is required.
Heald’s Mantis Bollards: The Mantis is a static bollard which offers a shallow mount, low cost and quick installation. Available with stainless steel covers, the bollards have also been crash tested.
