Critical National Infrastructure

Every public building has a duty of care not only to its employees but to those that visit. Security Blinds offers a bespoke service for window security that not only protects against theft, sabotage, and ram raids but also explosions and bomb blast.

Royal Gwent Hospital installed the Secur™ product following recommendations for improved window security to their containment level 2 and 3 laboratories from the Counter Terrorism Security Advisors at Gwent Police. Secur(tm) was more cost effective and less disruptive than installing high security windows.

CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE

The way Secur™ protects is simple, the second a blast occurs the blades shut. This impenetrable barrier prevents flying glass and debris from penetrating the building, protecting both the building and the individuals inside.  Security Blinds believe they are the only company globally that can provide a product to withstand such high levels of attack in the window area of any building and know of no comparable product available anywhere in the world.

The counter-terrorism strategy known within the Government as CONTEST is based on the policy that can be summed up as Prevent, Pursue, Protect and Prepare. The updated strategy announced a year ago in March by the Home Secretary is designed to ensure we are all kept safe. Jacqui Smith said, “ Protecting the public is my key objective and the aim of the Government’s new counter terrorism strategy is to reduce the risk of terrorism to allow people to go about their lives freely and with confidence. The UK has one of the most comprehensive and wide ranging approaches to tackling terrorism in the world and we have updated our CONTEST strategy to take account of the evolving threat, the lessons we have learned and the new challenges we face.”

“Without business continuity a natural or man-made disaster could result in:
Loss of work to competitors
Failures within your supply chain
Loss of reputation
Human resources issues
Health and safety liability
Higher insurance premiums”
