A fictional embassy secured by an integrated perimeter protection solution from the Zaun Group was the stand-out highlight of the 2016 Security and Policing Show.
The embassy mock-up was constructed with input from the Metropolitan Police Service’s Security Liaison Unit and Parliamentary and Diplomatic Protection, which advises on the protection of embassies and other diplomatic missions.
Show visitors raved about the mock-up, which was designed to give a realistic impression of the many security elements deployed to protect diplomats and the buildings that they use.
Staff staged mock scenarios including a full security lockdown to make the live experience even more realistic at the annual UK Government security show, which was held at the FIVE venue in Farnborough from 8-10 March.
It’s the UK’s only security event aimed at police, law enforcement and security professionals specifically tasked with security, civil protection and national resilience.
The Zaun Group pitched its integrated high security perimeter systems from a combined stand (B47) that housed a working demonstration including an SR2-rated gate, electric fencing, perimeter intrusion detection systems, CCTV and video analytics, prison mesh and post systems complete with razor coil toppings.
The centrepiece embassy mock-up demonstrated far more coherently the integrated approach that the Zaun Group can offer, with both Perimeter Security Suppliers Association-verified products and installations.
The comprehensive solution included Zaun’s most intruder-resistant fencing, ArmaWeave, FST prison toppings from Binns, electric fencing and PIDs from Harper Chalice and multi-megapixel and HD video evidence from a series of HD CCTV cameras recorded and managed by EyeLynx’s SharpView intelligent video surveillance system.
Over 350 companies exhibited at the event, showcasing world-leading technologies, products and solutions. It’s very much a cornerstone of the UK’s security event calendar.
