Heald's EM Matador

Security Firm Launches New Range of Products

Heald, the Yorkshire-based manufacturer of hostile vehicle mitigation solutions, has announced the launch of a new range of products.

The security company will show of its electro-mechanical range of bollards and road blockers at an exhibit during the UK Security Expo in London (29th – 30th November).

Heald specialises in road blockers and bollards to protect people and places from vehicle attacks and organised crime, and it is now launching its brand-new range of electro-mechanical bollards.

Building on from the success of their existing product range, most of which are powered via hydraulics, Heald’s electro-mechanical (EM) products will offer the same standards as their existing products with some added benefits.

One of the primary benefits of EM over a hydraulic system is the ability to deploy products quickly with the use of motors, removing the need for an additional unit to house controls and the installation of hydraulic ducts for the products to operate.

An additional benefit of Heald’s EM range is a reduced carbon footprint as it requires an average of 60% less electricity to operate.

The EM range will extend to Heald’s existing products including the Raptor, the Evo Bollard and the EM Matador.

The Matador specifically will revolutionise temporary and small event security due to its shallow foundation depth and its ability to run off a generator or temporary power supply.

Having revolutionised the perimeter security industry with the automatic Matador, Heald will be launching its EM Matador at the UK Security Expo 2017 which takes place in London on the 29th – 30th November.

The announcement of the new products comes just weeks after Heald were crowned both Medium Business and the Business of the Year Winner at the Chamber Bridlington and Yorkshire Coast Business Awards (CBYCBA).

Initially founded in 1986, Heald Ltd has become an international company and is one of the largest manufacturers of quality security equipment in the UK with approximately 80% of products and services exported internationally.

Based in Hornsea and headed up by Debbie and Rod Heald, Heald Ltd employs 38 people from the local area and has an annual turnover of nearly £3m.
