Benches, planters, sunbeds, waste bins... Protective street furniture is already ubiquitous in major cities like London. Because terror protection can also be quite inconspicuous and yet effective - with maximum acceptance on the part of urban planners and the population.
The threat to urban areas and to people spending time outdoors in cities has increased further. Existing safety equipment often no longer meets the requirements. It is difficult to integrate new systems or they are not accepted by urban planners and the general public. New approaches are needed! It is important that city planners and those responsible for safety recognise this: There is no uniform and single answer to the security question. Rather, the protection of public spaces requires a combination of the most diverse systems, taking into account current and future security needs. Protective street furniture is one of many ways of sensibly protecting public spaces.
They fit perfectly into the cityscape and still offer reliable protection against amok drives: Protective street furniture is becoming more and more important worldwide in the protection against terrorism.
London demonstrates this: more and more protective urban furniture is replacing or supplementing martial security facilities. Especially in cities like London, where the threat of terrorism is latent, people do not want to be constantly reminded of it. Protective urban furniture blends in perfectly with the cityscape when cleverly chosen. An invisible protection that also offers added value through additional seating areas and greenery. This is one of the reasons why protecting urban furniture is so well accepted by the population.
Whether individually or as part of an overall concept: Protective street furniture such as fixed benches, loungers or planters offer comprehensive protection against approaching vehicles. Depending on the model and type of installation, models PAS68 and IWA 14-1 are certified.
