Townscape extends hostile vehicle mitigation offering

Perimeter security specialist, Townscape Products Limited, has extended its range of hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) products with the launch of the Performa-Cast™ PAS 68 bollard sleeve.

The sleeve is designed to fit over existing or new PAS 68 bollards and is manufactured in Performa-Cast™, an engineering grade polyurethane cast.

Performa-Cast™ offers all the aesthetic benefits of cast iron combined with the enhanced performance of steel but with greatly superior durability.

Jonathan Goss, managing director of Townscape, said: “This new product has been created after listening carefully to our customers’ requirements. Many locations and projects have existing bollards which tie into a specific landscape design. We have been asked repeatedly if these designs could be retained but with added security – and that’s where the idea for the Performa-Cast™ PAS 68 bollard sleeve originated.”

“Our Performa-Cast™ moulds are made to exactly match the existing bollard designs so they will look identical, yet the combination of the Performa-Cast™ sleeve and the PAS 68 bollard offers an extremely strong, non-ferrous, non- rusting exterior surface.”

Waterfront retail and leisure destination, Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth, has already installed 35 Performa-Cast™ PAS 68 bollard sleeves along its quayside. These sleeves were developed in two designs, the Gunwharf Heritage and the sleek Senator, to complement the existing coastal heritage street furniture theme.

Jonathan Goss, added: “Performa-Cast™ is ideal for Gunwharf Quays as it is highly resistant to high saline coastal environments. The PAS 68 bollard sleeves form part of a HVM system for the entire quayside.”

Townscape will be officially launching the Performa-Cast™ PAS 68 bollard sleeve at the Counter Terror Stand Expo at Olympia, London on 24 and 25 April. Visit the Townscape stand – G72 – to see the new product.
