96 LANDSCAPING & EXTERNAL WORKS


While it’s vital to secure urban areas from attacks and crime, so too is the need to combat the psychology that some of the more utilitarian products can create


example, can see a product able to stop a 7.2 tonne lorry travelling at 40 mph when installed correctly.


For areas where the risk of a hostile vehicle attack is lower, or where protection might predominantly be needed against criminal ram raids – which have more than doubled in the last five years – or accidental collisions, other options

exist. PAS 170, on the other hand, delivers a testing standard for vehicles of up to 2.5 tonnes travelling up to either 10 mph or 20 mph and is a more cost-effective solution in lower risk areas. In addition, options are also available in busy towns and city centres where, owing to the ubiquity of underground services ranging from data and electrical cabling to water, gas and waste pipes, installation can be a challenge. We are leading the way in innovating within this category, with the launch of a super-shallow foundation system, which has a depth requirement of just 100 mm, much lower than the traditional requirements of between 600 mm and 1,000 mm. For those installing the products, this range avoids the requirement for major excavation works, which can lead to road closures, and also minimises the levels of waste. These options all serve to keep the public safe and not scared. A main objective of terrorists is to destroy the very fabric of our everyday life. While it’s vital to secure urban areas from attacks and crime, so too is the need to combat the psychology some of the more utilitarian products can create. By fortifying an area, we run the risk of reducing footfall, impacting businesses and having a detrimental effect on a location’s cultural heritage. Specifying aesthetically pleasing landscape furniture products that make sure the risk isn’t visible to someone using a space now needs to be high on the list of priorities for architects. By being aware of the threats posed and the options available, public spaces can be made both safe, and welcoming.
