Date: 04/07/2016

The National Barrier Asset (NBA) is a range of high security systems owned and managed by Sussex Police on behalf of the Home Office, providing robust Hostile Vehicle Mitigation (HVM) measures and security fencing. It is available for use by the UK governmental, foreign governmental and commercial organisations.

The NBA was funded and developed initially to protect annual political party meetings and conferences from hostile vehicle attacks. More investment was placed in products such as rising gates and pedestrian portals for use at major events. This development was as a part of the Governments protect workstream. To keep abreast of modern threats, the NBA has evolved and developed new systems to meet the requirements of specific events such as the European Justice Ministries conference in Brighton where a need for High security fence that would be robust in the event of mob attacks and considerably reduce the number of guardforce required to patrol the perimeter.  The Rapid Deployable System (RDS) an anti-climb temporary HVM system tested to PAS 68 Standards for 2.5 tonnes at 30mph on a 90 Degree angle which was developed with the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI).



Having formed a long standing relationship working together,  Highway Care Security Solutions (HCSS) and Hardstaff Barriers have formed a new Joint Venture company named H2S2, working together with Sussex Police, H2S2 are now offering the supply of the National Barrier Asset product range.

H2S2 were awarded the contract by Sussex Police to deploy the NBA. That contract allows them to not only use the extensive range of NBA products but also their own proprietary products. The NBA is a true collaborative partnership between H2S2 and Sussex Police, the combined team brings a wealth of expertise in the field of HVM and security at major security events.

The NBA is now available to support the private sector to secure temporary events and can be deployed only as part of a holistic security plan using the most appropriate assets to ensure maximum protection. All products have been tested to PAS 68 standards and where applicable have been subjected to the UK developing “Mob” attack standards. With the involvement from Sussex Police, you can be assured that you will get an open, honest and professional service.
