For any sports venue, the security and safety of visitors and staff is the most critical element of a successful event. The larger the venue, the more complex the security requirements will be. Improving security solutions at sports venues is becoming increasingly important as we see violence and security threats increasing across the country.
Key Areas for Improving Security Solutions
There are many areas of sports venue use that could benefit from enhanced security solutions such as the following:
- Movement of spectators to and from the site
- Managing capacity and stopping overcrowding
- Complying with course/ground guidelines
- Alcohol consumption and the risks associated
- Safety of crowd and management
- Violence against staff
- Safety of VIPs
It is difficult to stop problems from occurring altogether, however having a comprehensive contingency plan for security solutions is important. Security solutions in sports venues are typically centered around turnstiles, barriers, fencing, CCTV, security solutions, and additional access-control surveillance measures.
Armortex focuses on delivering ballistic grade security solutions that mitigate the severity of threats, rather than just deterring them.
Bulletproof windows are fantastic security solutions, offering maximum protection against all security threats. Armortex sells blast and bullet-resistant windows which are made from the highest quality ballistic-grade glass and framing materials. We provide security solutions that do not compromise the look and feel of a sports venue whilst offering optimum protection.
Blast Resistant Doors
These security solutions are one of the most advanced ballistic materials available on the market. Armortex produces hollow metal security doors, produced to mitigate the threat from incoming projectiles.
Blast-resistant doors can be used in sports venues to protect VIPs and sports stars in green rooms and changing rooms, as well as staff and visitors in toilets and staff rooms.
Transaction drawers work as security solutions for sports venues and can help protect staff at points of sale or interaction with the public or visitors. Minimizing the risk for businesses without adversely affecting workflow and efficiency is important to ensuring sports venues and events run smoothly.
Fiberglass Security Solutions
Armortex supplies bulletproof fiberglass panels which work in high-performance bulletproof applications. The panels can be incorporated into walls, increasing projectile retention and overall strength and safety of sports venues, without altering the aesthetics. We can also produce fiberglass furniture to add an extra level of protection to visitors and staff.
Another innovative security solution we offer is our security speakers. Bulletproofing your sports venue can often create a barrier between staff and customers, leading to a breakdown in communication and missed opportunities. Armortex offers mechanical voice-port covers which allow for voice transmission through ballistic glass without diminishing the performance of the protective material.
