Security Manufacturer Launches Range of
Electro-Mechanical Products
Y
orkshire based Heald Ltd, an
award-winning security manufacturer specialising in road
blockers and bollards to protect people and places from vehicle attacks
and organised crime have announced the launch of a range of
electro-mechanical bollards.
Building on from the success of their
existing product range, most of which
are powered via hydraulics, Heald’s
electro-mechanical (EM) products will
offer the same excellent standards as
their existing products with a variety of
added benefits. One of the primary benefits of EM over a hydraulic system is
the ability to deploy products faster owing to motors being installed within the
product which removes the need for an
additional unit to house controls and
having to install hydraulic ducts for the
products to operate.
An additional benefit of Heald’s EM
range is a reduced carbon footprint due
to requiring on average, over 60% less
electricity to operate.
The EM range will extend to Heald’s
existing products including the Raptor,
the Evo Bollard and the EM Matador.
The Matador specifically will revolutionise temporary and small event security
due to its shallow foundation depth and
its ability to run off a generator or temporary power supply.
Having revolutionised the perimeter security industry with the automatic Matador, Heald will launched their EM
Matador at the UK Security Expo 2017
which took place in London on the 2930 November.
The announcement of the new products
comes just weeks after Heald were
crowned both Medium Business and
the Business of the Year Winner at the
Chamber Bridlington and Yorkshire
Coast Business Awards.
