Royal Festival Hall – Hostile Vehicle Mitigation
Unfortunately, we are getting an increasing number of enquiries for the use of barriers to prevent hostile vehicle mitigation. The use of concrete barriers helps prevent vehicles being driven into crowds or groups of pedestrians by terrorists.
Below are photos of our barriers in place at the Southbank centre, Royal Festival Hall , London.
We can customise your barriers however you wish. The barriers below were requested to be painted red and white in a design by our client.
They were positioned on various sites to protect users of the concrete batching plants.
Barriers into Stratford Olympic Park
As we aren’t far away we get requests for the hire of barriers into the Olympic Park for short term when they have events on.
Well that one flew by! Increased sales – nearly double that of previous year kept us very busy. Which possibly means land owners weren’t confident in present market and thought that it would be more cost effective to purchase than hire if they couldn’t sell. We don’t offer a buy back facility except where the clients contract insists on it, but we do say to give us a call when your use of the barriers has finished.
Also the new security barrier gate system is proving popular – ideal where access is needed but security is required.
Another big thank you for all our customers new and long standing and we wish you all the best for 2017.
Protecting a new warehouse facility
Along with the fencing the full length concrete barriers are offering the best protection for this new warehouse
The British Museum – London

Latest product: Gate with barrier system
Following requests, we have developed a steel security gate that can be used in conjunction with our full length concrete barriers. This provides security but allows access when required if authorised vehicles are needing to get onto the property. They are locked with padlock and key or combination lock.
The photo below shows a 5m gate being used with 2 x 2.25T full length concrete barriers, the barriers are shown at right angles to the gates but they can be swivelled around and used in a long line or we understand that every site is different so the barriers can be positioned at whatever angle is needed.
The gates are available in 3 & 5m lengths, along with 2 x 3m barriers and are available for hire or purchase.
More information will follow but please don’t hesitate to call on 01992 444900 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again a big thank you to our of our customers new and old for making 2015 another successful year. This year, we found that it was the numbers of barriers on hire which increased dramatically, with the quantity at the end of the year being double that of end of 2014. We had a very busy final couple of weeks before Christmas with everyone seeming to want their property protected over the Christmas break.
We have continued to update our delivery fleet throughout the year and all our experienced staff have been with us 12+ years, therefore we are looking forward and prepared for 2016.

Half Barriers supporting heras fence panels at Goldsmiths University London SE1
The pictures below show our half length concrete barrier in place at Goldsmiths University. They were used to support construction fencing at a no dig site and protect the visitors and pupils while an art event was taking place.
As well being gaining FORS silver accreditation, we are now accredited with Constructionline. This shows major buyers that might be looking for barriers to support hoarding on ‘no dig’ sites, kentledge blocks for their scaffolding or just to block off an entrance to secure the site, that our company is run to a high standard and follows all Health & Safety requirements.
FORS Silver accreditation
We are pleased to announce that we have successfully achieved Silver accreditation with FORS.
FORS is a method of recognising fleet operations which comply with the requirements of the FORS standard. The FORS standard is based upon lawfulness, safety, efficiency, and environmental protection. This is an achievement we are very proud of.
New Lorry ordered
Due to demands on the business for delivery of concrete barriers, a new Scania has been ordered, which will hopefully be added to the fleet early this summer. This vehicle will be up to date with all current FORS regulations and will be CrossRail compliant.
FORS annual Audit
Our annual audit was successful showing then we provide a safe and up to date company in all areas of our business.
This last year we have seen a massive 28% increase in concrete barrier sales with all our products proving more popular than in previous years. They are not just being used to protect vacant land but are now increasingly being sold to companies using them to secure hoarding to on ‘no dig’ long term sites.
The hire of barriers is still a major part of our business, we have seen some long term hire now coming to an end as the land /warehouse/building has now been sold or rented out – which is great news for the local areas.
May we also remind our customers that our company is FORS accredited – which shows that we run our business to a high level of standard and safety.
We would like to give a Big Thank You all our customers new and old for their custom and hope that 2015 will be just as successful for all of us.
Barriers at Stansted Airport
Our full length barriers positioned exactly where required at for use as protection to the future tyre compound at Stansted Airport
Barriers used with hoarding
The photo below shows exactly where our barriers can be used in conjunction with hoarding. This job was in Leeds, our client purchased our full length concrete barriers and secured the hoarding on top.
The barriers provides security for the site by preventing ram raiding , prevents damage to the road where the hoarding would normally have to be secured directly into the ground and also helps prevent the hoarding being blown down easily.
FORS Accreditation gained
We are are pleased to announce gaining FORS Bronze accreditation. This qualification will be compulsory for any hauliers working in London and shows that accredited companies are up to date with all current health & safety requirements regarding other vulnerable road users ie, fitting of cameras, sensors etc for cyclists and that our staff are fully qualified and vehicles operated properly. All aspects of our company were audited and we passed on our first audit.
Even though it’s not compulsory yet, alot of sites are not allowing deliveries unless the haulier has this qualification, therefore we will be able to deliver all your concrete barrier or block requirements without any problems.
Scaffold counter weights
We have found an increasing need for the hire of our concrete barriers and blocks to be used as counterweights for scaffolding. The half length barrier has proved very popular as it is forkliftable, although all sizes can be lifted into position by our lorry mounted cranes.

The Year “2013”
We are pleased to report yet another year with increased barrier sales, particulary in the sale of our half size barrier. This has proved very popular for use as scaffolding weights and for use with hoarding fencing with sales increased by a whopping 300%!
We also had a 75% increase in barriers on hire, whilst some of this is taken up with the half length barrier on scaffolding, the remainder is for our popular Full Length Stop Block barrier. This rise in rental quantities could be due to the decision of some companies to decide to rent the barriers instead of purchase as their confidence has grown in the sales market and hope that the hire will only be for the short term and therefore cost effective.
In any case, we are very delighted in our growth for the 6th year running, and would like to thank all our customers new and old for their confidence in our company and products. We take pride in giving great customer service from your initial contact with us through to the delivery and this growth shows that we’ve got that right.
Addition to our Fleet
We are pleased to add another new scania to our fleet, this ensures that all our lorries are in line with the latest environmental regulations & LEZ emissions so therefore produce the least amount of pollution possible. Ideal for transporting the concrete barriers into London and all major cities.
London Borough of Hounslow were after a smarter way of securing this piece of land, to keep the area secure from trespassers and fly tipping. We supplied our 3m long concrete Planters to site all painted and signwritten in the Council’s colours ready for planting.
These Planters along with the supply and installation of the fence panels ensures that the area is kept clear of rubbish.
We currently have around half a dozen Stop Block half length barriers that have come up slightly lower in height on manufacture (all heights not the same).
These are in new condition so perfect if you’re not wanting something too big but still want them to look smart
We also have 5 x smaller blocks that have been used on site already – so they aren’t too pretty.
sizes – 900mm(L) x900mm(H) x500(D)
Photo’s are available so if you’re interested in any of the above, please give us a call or email and we’ll get back to you.
The year “2012”
Sales of both the full and half length Stop Block concrete barriers have risen again in 2012, this is for the 5th year running.
The same has happened with the quantities of concrete barriers on hire. This is due to not only a large number of repeat custom but also a high level of new customers.
There are a steadily increasing number of companies offering concrete barriers; therefore our results show that we are continuing to provide a high level of service and competitive prices.
We are one of the original companies to offer concrete barriers to use as security and our results show that we are at the top of our game.

Planters for Maldon District Council, Essex
We have just delivered concrete security Planters to Maldon in Essex. They have been delivered to Maldon District Council to protect the playground area from unwanted vehicular access. The Planters add this protection and security but will be planted up with flowers to look more pleasing to the visitors.
Our concrete barriers have been recommended to a company who contacted Hertfordshire Police looking for security to their land after the area was being continually used by trespassing motorbikes. Our Stop Block concrete barriers are in use to secure the land of the former Hertford Police Station, therefore the Police put our name forward.
As the land owner wasn’t local to the area, our representative visited the site, took photos and liaised with the Police to advise on the best deterrent.

We were contacted to provide a product to prevent the constant damage that was being caused to the perimeter fence by reversing lorries as they parked up.
We suggested painting our largest concrete barriers in their company colours and adding reflective lime green stripes which would show up in the dark. The work was carried out before delivery and meant minimum disruption at their depot.
The barriers were then delivered and positioned by our vehicles to provide perfect protection.
