Exhibition review: PPG present anti-terror crash bollards and hits the nerves of a multitude of visitors

On Thursday, 18th January 2018, the fifth Perimeter Protection 2018 in Nuremberg, trade fair for security technology and perimeter protection, ended. Over three days, a total of 135 exhibitors, including 56 international, presented their innovations in the field of mechanical and electronic security solutions to more than 3.600 visitors. The portfolio of exhibitors included not only classic perimeter products but also electronic components such as surveillance cameras and biometric access controls. Perimeter Protection Germany GmbH (PPG), German subsidiary of the internationally operating Perimeter Protection Group, presented innovative crash bollards with impact load for preventive and effective protection of inner-city areas and public spaces. Kira Lichte, Marketing PPG, resumes: „We are very satisfied with the fair. Especially the high quality, but also the orientation of the numerous visitors at our booth shows us that our focus on High Security for public spaces is more relevant than ever.” Hansruedi Voß, PPG sales manager adds: “The demand is increasing rapidly and the trend is clearly moving away from the classic traffic bollard for simple traffic regulation, to crash bollards with impact protection, which is mandatory to be certified and proven.”

In addition to assembling companies from the fence-, gate- and metalworking sector, visitors to the Perimeter Protection 2018 increasingly included security officers from large industrial companies, local and long-distance transport, airports, energy, fire brigades, prisons, police and military, decision-makers from municipalities and public authorities as well as planners and architects. This is hardly surprising given the current security situation in Europe. PPG has hit the nerve of the target group with their solutions on show at the booth. Hansruedi Voß confirms: “In order to respond better to the rapidly increasing security needs of inner-city or highly frequented areas, such as stadiums, we have expanded our portfolio with cost-effective, decorative security bollards that have quickly become a crowd puller.” He adds: “These decorative bollards are extremely economical. If one of these bollards is damaged by slight collisions, for example during shunting, the stainless-steel shrouds can be easily replaced without renewing the concrete foundation. The main attraction is that the bollards can be optionally hidden in modern, high-quality street furniture, such as flower boxes or equipped with bike stands. This is a very important factor that must be taken into consideration when it comes to security concepts for public spaces, because these require subtle solutions that blend in with everyday life without attracting negative attention. “

The latest addition to the sliding gate product line with a new, type-tested steel sliding gate was also convincing. Like all our own PPG products, the new sliding gate is made in Germany and offers variable gate fillings, a high operating speed and radio-controlled safety contact strips! In addition, PPG offers one of the most modern and efficient controls in the market. Kira Lichte summarises: “The fair definitely was a success. We would like to thank all our visitors for their interest in our solutions and the professional conversations.”
