Organizers face potential terrorist attacks, hostile crowds, rioting or sabotage, all increasing the requirement for implementing a security program which is embedded into each stage of an event timeline – from construction to the event date, and then on to the decommissioning of the site.
The requirement for a rapidly deployable security barrier is essential, one that will blend into the built environment, one which is also just as easy to recover post event, especially if the event is held in a customer facing arena.
"One of the main challenges faced by security teams at high profile events includes, but is not limited to, time and disruption; therefore the requirement for rapid security solutions are paramount.
The design overlay requirements are simple: to deliver a robust, effective security package through the most cost effective and appropriate means. Depending on the chosen venue, the perimeter fencing may need to be as unobtrusive in the surroundings as possible."

The London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics added an estimated half million visitors to the UK’s already bustling capital. This increased visitor footfall raised security concerns for transport links and Olympic venues. The security measures required had to be temporary and surface-mounted solutions that could be easily removed after the games.
A football match was scheduled to take place between Leeds United and Manchester United; this match has a deep seated rivalry, and has led to violent clashes in the past. The solution selected had to be flexible enough to be dismantled as and when required but robust enough to withstand a mob attack. An enclosure was created which would allow the coaches to pass through a police controlled entrance and allow the fans to disembark and make their way into the stadium, in safety.
