The protection of public spaces, high profile buildings and landmarks has recently come into sharp focus given the horrifying rise in terrorist attacks using vehicles.
Couple the risk of terrorism with the threat posed by criminal activity, drunk drivers and even drivers that fall asleep at the wheel, and it becomes clear just how critical it is to stop vehicles from accessing pedestrian spaces.
As a leading UK perimeter security expert, Townscape can help specification and procurement professionals charged with the protection of public spaces to boost security with the installation of physical counter terror measures that will keep public spaces and buildings safe from vehicle incursion or attack.

WHAT IS VAD?
Vehicle Attack Delay (VAD) is the process of delaying a vehicle that might be planned to be used as a weapon against people (particularly pedestrians) or business premises with the intent of harm or destruction of property. Carefully designed and placed street furniture can help to mitigate the effects of such acts.
