Securing Airport Driveways –Case Study Tashkent Uzbekistan Airport

Over the last three decades, the ELGOTEAM Security Systems have been on the forefront in the development, manufacturing, supply, and installation of high-end security systems in airports and government buildings.

In this case, their focus was the Tashkent Uzbekistan Airport which is one of the places where they showcased their expertise in the installation of comprehensive security solutions.

Why It is Important to Secure Airports

Although terrorism didn't start yesterday, it is only in recent years that it has become a thorn in the flesh for many organizations and countries around the globe. Incidences of terrorists ramming into crowds on driveways or underground paths have become rampant resulting in massive casualties. For this reason, it has become extremely crucial for government agencies as well as private organizations to adopt counterterrorism measures such as the use of barriers and bollards to guarantee the safety of their citizens, clients or customers. The restrictions are also useful tools to help guide individuals into parking spaces. While limiting access to certain public places such as airports is daunting, sophisticated products such as those supplied by the ELGOTEAM have come in handy to help solve this problem. With 30 years of innovative experience, ELGOTEAM provides versatile and robust security solutions for a vast array of demands and configurations.

How We Approached the Tashkent Uzbekistan Airport Security Installation

At the Tashkent Airport, ELGOTEAM installed various security products to ensure that they block vehicles from ramming into pedestrians on the runways or the structures inside the airport. Since the issue of installation depth was a concern, the team needed to use products that don’t require much excavation. For instance, the wedge barrier used at the Tashkent Uzbekistan required only 350mm depth and the arm barriers complementing the wedge barriers required shallow foundation as well. The entire security vehicle barriers are crash certified ASTM/PAS68 AND IWA-14, meaning that they can stop vehicles of various weights and sizes. Other items that were installed include the EL-09-1 arm barrier, traffic lights, and other security products.

 ELGO TEAM offers full line security using a myriad of products that have been carefully developed by skilled professionals using the highest quality materials.  ELGOTEAM provides not only unique and premium-quality products but also offers full security solutions. Their security systems can be operated either manually or automatically using new technologies such as remote controls, LPR, biometric IDs, magnetic cards and many more.
