EL-GO TEAM Bringing Advanced Perimeter Security Systems To The U.S. Market
ASIS Security Conference, Atlanta, GA
As terrorist threats have escalated since the events of 9/11 and security has become the everyday concerns of not only governments, but also private companies and citizens, real world requirements for cost-effective, minimally intrusive yet highly-effective security solutions have escalated accordingly and industry has responded to the challenge.
Founded in 1992, and today with 25 employees and sales representatives in 18 cities around the globe, EL-GO Team has been a leading developer and manufacturer of security, access control systems, and anti-terror perimeter security systems for an ever-widening range of government and civil customers internationally.
According to EL-GO Team, the core focus of the company remains on the development, manufacture and provision of a wide variety of physical security products designed to prevent the intrusion of unwanted vehicles and personal into the secured compound. These perimeter security systems include anti-crash, security bollards, high security arm barriers, road spike systems, under vehicle inspection system, and advanced turnstiles.
If your idea of physical high security barriers like iron bars and concrete-filled planters, view in operation and ponder EL-GO Team’s Heavy Duty Road Blocker, a shallow-mounted barrier system more than capable of stopping a 6.8 tonne truck moving at 50 mph – the so-called K-12 certification — and then able to reset and function as if nothing happened.
Or, if personnel security is your mission, ponder EL-GO Team’s new Security Turnstile, which can work in tandem with a metal detector, explosives detectors, or an x-ray detector in its main control unit and can, when necessary, lock and restrain an intruder/threat for closer inspection.
While EL-GO Team’s exact client list is understandably sensitive, EL-GO Team’s patented physical security products can be found protecting high-value government and civilian facilities – including U.S. Military bases — in more than twenty nations including Afghanistan, Ethiopia, India, Jordan, Kenya, Russia, and Singapore.
As the company enters its fourth decade, EL-GO Team is significantly expanding both its world class product line and its geographic focus to address customer demand for advanced technology.
On the first count, EL-GO Team’s new Metis and BLG05-S shallow-mounted retractable and sliding bollards – the latter with the critical “K-12” certified capability – address customer demands, unmet until now, to stop the largest and fastest threat vehicles without using the more obtrusive wedge barriers described above.
With BLG05-S EL-GO Team has recently overcome the challenge of complying with what seems to be a typical US market requirement in protecting premises located in cities where infrastructure prevent usage of other than shallow mounted retractable bollards still capable to stand the high standard of “K-12”.
Perhaps more significantly, as it reflects a significant broadening of the company technology and market focus, El-Go Team has recently introduced the Under Vehicle Inspection System (3DUVIS). The 3DUVIS offers a rapid scan and the threat assessment capability suitable for all vehicle types without any need for personal intervention.
Working with a License Plate Recognition camera, a high resolution color undercarriage footprint of each vehicle passing over the lightweight, The 3DUVIS System captures undercarriage images at speeds up to 45 kph and automatically stored in the 3DUVIS database system by license plate number in addition to the driver and vehicle images. The 3DUVIS can handle up to twenty cars per minute and operate day or night, rain or shine, in temperatures ranging from 15F to 130F.
In the second regard, El-Go Team is now keenly focused on bringing its products and successes to the U.S. market. While the company estimates that 10% of its sales come from the U.S., El-Go Team has not, until now, focused strategically on marketing in America.
