Formed in 1987 

Cova Security Gates was formed in 1987 in Horley, Surrey, developing a range of perimeter security gates, road blockers, bollards and barriers for long term continual use, often in hostile environments. 

Range introduced 

In 2002 the range of CSG 10601/2/3 Tracked Speed Gates was introduced. 

First Trackless Bi-Fold Gate 

In 2003 Cova Security was the first manufacturer in the world to bring Trackless Bi-folding Speed Gates to the market – the CSG 10604 and CSG 10605. In this same year, a vehicle borne explosive attack on the British Consulate General in Istanbul was stopped by a non PAS 68 crash tested road blocker, preventing detonation at its target, the main Consulate building. 

Full Depth Road Blocker Gains Formal Rating 

2005 saw the CSG 10503 Full Depth Road Blocker gain a formal crash test rating. The CSG 10506 Crash Tested Shallow Mount Road Blocker was not far behind in the same year. 

Crash Tested Shallow Depth Bollards now PAS68 

CSG 10840 and CSG 10850 Crash Tested Shallow Depth Bollards join the portfolio of PAS 68 crash tested products. 

First Crash Tested Speed Gates made available 

2010 was a milestone year in which the world’s first Crash Tested Bi-Folding Speed Gates were developed, the CSG 10640 (40mph) and the CSG 10650 (50mph)

Crash Tested Cantilevered Gate Developed 

In 2011, the standard sliding cantilevered gate was redeveloped using Cova’s patented arrestor technology, to deliver the PAS 68 rated CSG 10140 Crash Tested Sliding Cantilevered Gate, a sliding alternative to the crash tested bi-folding gate. 

New PAS68 Barrier Developed 

A totally new PAS 68 compliant barrier, the economical CSG 10900 Series Crash Tested Miti-Gate®, was developed and tested in 2012, again using Cova’s patented arrestor technology. 

First Crash Tested Full Depth Rising Bollard. Developed
