A Safe Place of Worship
Bullet Resistant perimeter to protect the entrance.
It is an acknowledged risk that places of worship are vulnerable to hate crime attacks; an establishment in London approached Safetell with a need to protect the religious community within the building from potential external threat.
An aesthetically pleasing ballistic glazed system was created, with secondary reinforced railings for the entrance of the building. The client wanted protection against manual attack, intrusion, vehicles used as weapons, and firearm attack and this was all taken into account.
The client also wanted the railings to open outwards for easy access, so that they could be cleaned. This was achieved by bespoke hidden latches and hinge mechanisms, as well as colour coordinated cover plates on all external fixings. The overall project was successfully completed providing a safe environment for a religious community to come together and worship, without fear of attack.
