Case Studies - here's a few things we've been up to recently...


Warehouse Protection // Lutterworth

Project: Protect newly-built warehouse buildings whilst maintaining daily access

We were asked by our customer to visit site, measure up and suggest what would be most suitable to secure the newly-built warehouse from unauthorised visitors, whilst maintaining daily access for workforce and potential buyers. Within two days of measuring we were back on site deploying large sliding and two of our MKII RDBs to block the pavement. We even received a nice Testimonial from the client..!

“I have been using Block Aid’s services since 2018 and found them to be excellent across every aspect of their business. They fully understand the pressures we are up against in terms of time and urgency. They are a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend.”

Our sliding gates are produced using galvanised steel and are bolted and welded to the RDB barrier of your choice. Check out our ranges here: Concrete Block Hire //  Security Gates

Vacant Warehouse Protection // Manchester

Project: Prevent unauthorised access to a vacant property

Working alongside a security company we were asked to deploy one of our RDB XL barriers to deter unauthorised access to this vacant unit.

Our RDB XL barriers are a serious block! Weighing 5000kg and at over 4m long, they must be deployed using our HIAB lorry. Despite their size and weight, the RDB XL has some great benefits such as a unique linking system and hidden forklift pockets, which are not visible from the front to prevent tampering.

Warehouse Access Prevention // Middlesex

Project: Deploy MKII RDBs to newly-built warehouses

Working with a security company, Block Aid was asked to deploy forty of our MKII concrete blocks to newly-built warehouse premises in Middlesex.

Our MKII blocks were used as an extra deterrent along with their bollards to add protection from unauthorised visitors. To further secure the MKII blocks we linked them together using our unique, custom made, tamper-resistant bolts and fixings.

Sliding Security Gate Setup // Wolverhampton

Project: Flexible access solution using a sliding gate and concrete block combo 

Block Aid was asked by our customer to deploy our 5m sliding security-gate to provide a deterrent against unauthorised access, whilst not hindering day to day access during working hours.

Our sliding security gates can be used in conjunction with either our MKI or MKII barriers to provide a strong but flexible access system. The gates are bolted and then welded to give an extra precaution against tampering.

Swing Gate Install // Birmingham

ProjectAccess control using a swing gate and concrete-block combo

We were asked by our customer to deploy our large swing-style security gate in conjunction with our MKII barrier in order to provide an extra deterrent against unauthorised access.

As space either side was tight, we made the decision to position the brackets and barriers at a right angle from the gate itself. The brackets on our swing gates can be angled in many directions depending on specific sites, and this proved a useful innovation for this install.
