KNIGHT Brothers has secured a contract for a major event coming to Australia in the spring that will be protected by 11 portable Delta MP5000 vehicle mitigation barriers.

“Australia is developing an increased focus in this space, highlighted by a recent national strategy relating to the practical implementation of suitable measures to protect places of mass gathering,” said Dr Daniel Knight, director of Knight Brothers.

“Having been involved in the high-security industry and working closely with Delta Scientific for some years, it was clear that Australian venue, event and public space operators were facing various challenges implementing temporary and deployable vehicle protection measures which were crash-certified to international standards.

“Knight Brothers offers government and commercial clients the ability to procure high-quality and certified vehicle protection solutions from an Australian owned and operated company that is supported by global leader Delta Scientific. We have already developed a strong response from operators of some of Australia’s leading sporting stadiums and event venues and will be seeing Delta’s portable barrier systems in use from early 2018.”

Delta’s MP5000 portable barricades and TB100 temporary bollards can be installed in 15 minutes or less to protect streets, entrances or wide expanses such as access to pedestrian areas or even airport runways. They protect people and critical infrastructures at public events such as parades, festivals, sporting weekends and any place were vehicles could attack transitory events.

Mobile deployable vehicle crash barriers carry a recognized K8 rating (M40 ASTM rating), stopping a 6400kg vehicle traveling at 64 kmph.
