The Importance of Resilient Structures

December 16th, 2013|Categories: Resilient Structures|Tags: , , , , , |

cycloneThe only difference between a hurricane, a cyclone, and a typhoon is the location where the storm occurs.

They all happen in the same way:

Warm water heats the air and it starts to rise, and begins to spiral. The warm air will be very moist and will start to condense. As the warm air spiral goes up into colder air, it becomes even warmer and lighter, so it rises and spirals faster, sucking in more warm moist air from the surrounding sea. This enormous heat-engine, powered by the heat in the sea, is a storm formation.

When a building stands in the path of the wind, the windward wall tends to block the air, and the air pressure increases. This force can cave in walls, smash doors or columns or bracing systems, or push buildings completely over. As it passes over, the wind can come from every direction.

If there is an opening in the windward side, the high pressure can find its way into a building. The whole building can be blown outwards, like a balloon. What makes the situation worse is that the wind is not a steady […]

REIDsteel at the Olympics

REIDsteel are proud to have played a large part in the security of the millions of people who attended events throughout the UK with our patented Dragons teeth and bollard type gates.

We supplied 51 gates from Weymouth to Newcastle to the perimeter of stadiums and arenas to eliminate any threat from a terrorist vehicle with on board explosives.

July 27th, 2012|Categories: Resilient Structures|Tags: , , , , , |

We have recently had a high demand for our Anti Vehicle attack gates and security barriers at a ‘major sporting event’.

The twin bollard gates system offers openings of up to 12m, and the Dragon’s Teeth system is suitable for perimeter protection of commercial operations that have vulnerable boundaries such as airports, or energy/utility sectors.

and is also an ideal reusable solution for major event organisers as it surface mounted, cost effective and easy to deploy.
