Timelapse ARX Stopper!™ HVM installation by SAFECROWDS

SafeCrowds Stand: D90

ARX Stopper! is a versatile and effective hostile vehicle mitigation (HVM) system from ARX Security. SAFECROWDS is one of just two UK distributors for this counter terrorism equipment, and we are authorised to specify, supply and install this pedestrian permeable HVM. It is important to choose an authorised company and a PSSA member when selecting an HVM provider. When installed correctly by our trained technicians, ARX Stopper!™ is proven to stop a commercial vehicle or car travelling at 48km/hour (30mph), making this an ideal HVM system for protecting pedestrians in urban locations. The HVM system can be installed to separate pedestrians from traffic during temporary road closures. It allows normal crowd flows to enter and leave the pedestrian-only zone, while allowing rapid vehicular access for authorised or emergency vehicles, as and when required. This timelapse video shows the entire ARX Stopper!™ installation process, carried out by our trained and experienced SAFECROWDS HVM deployment team as part of match day security at Fulham FC. The HVM system was used here to protect Zone Ex areas outside of the stadium footprint, but in close proximity to the ground, keeping people safe from vehicle attacks and incursions during ingress and egress. The ARX Stopper!™ HVM system comprises single modules connected together in a protective array. Each HVM unit is covered by a casing that protects pedestrians and can also be used for branding, advertising or wayfinding. In this video, you can see we are installing the temporary HVM for a Fulham FC match day. If we are installing ARX Stopper! for use during the hours of darkness, we also install LED lights inside the protective casing to ensure the HVM is visible, and this also supports improved wayfinding. In addition to watching the ARX Stopper! temporary HVM installation in this video, you can also see how easy it is to set the HVM units to one side to allow an emergency or authorised vehicle through. As the Police van needs to access the protected area, our experienced deployment team move the HVM to one side while the van is driven through, before reinstating it. There’s lots more information about ARX Stopper!™, our counter terrorism services and our stadium security expertise on the SAFECROWDS website.
