For their latest project Fernden Construction were seeking a crash rated barrier solution to protect 3 key emergency access gates ‘airside’ around the perimeter area of Gatwick airport.
They appointed Cova to design and manufacture their CSG 10940 crash rated Mitigate® manual barrier.
For this specific project Fernden Construction were seeking a manual crash rated barrier solution to protect 3 key emergency access gates ‘airside’ around the perimeter area of Gatwick airport. They appointed Cova to design and manufacture their CSG 10940 crash rated Mitigate® manual barrier earlier this summer.
Dave Goss, Director commented: “For Gatwick the 3 emergency exit gates are right on the perimeter of the airport so there was no power or electricity available. The CSG crash rated manual barrier was the perfect solution and we picked Cova as they already have other Miti-Gates® at Gatwick and came highly recommended by their security team.”

“It’s a simple solution, the barrier is secured in the closed position with a specific padlock which is applied to the hinge ‘pin’ and locking pin. Even though the barrier will almost certainly remain closed permanently, if it is needed to be opened in an emergency – or to allow vehicle access the ‘pin’ is simply removed, and the barrier pushed open manually.” added Paul Bovingdon, Project Co-ordinator.
