In 2016, Heald were approached by Caramondani Bros Public Company Ltd, who required a surface-mount perimeter security solution to meet both the protection and architectural needs of their newest development project, the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre (SNFCC).
The HT-2 Matador 3 was implemented on site, meeting the need for a surface-mount solution which would complement and blend in with the architectural design, whilst at the same time providing the highest level of security. The HT-2 Matador 3 has been tested to stop a 7.2 tonne truck travelling at 64 kph (40mph), whilst providing a zero-penetration rating and continuing to be fully operational afterwards.
The site’s security was especially important because the venue hosts many significant, high-profile events, which are regularly attended by VIPs. An example of such an event was President Obama’s speech at the SNFCC Opera, during his recent visit to Greece in November 2016.
General Manager of Caramondani Bros Public Company Ltd, Erina Caramondani commented: “The entire Heald team are very professional. We had full technical support and we were very pleased with their responses to our queries as well as with their response time. The product itself is made of very high-quality materials and it has been functioning without any problems since its installation in March 2016.”
Heald’s Managing Director, Debbie Heald added: “Heald were proud to be chosen to assist in the security of this prestigious site. Our offering of shallow and surface mount technology is unique, giving the customer ease of installation and peace of mind when it comes to security and product longevity. We are pleased to have once again proven the quality of our product.”
