SECURITY PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: Abbot Studios
Security is continuously evolving. That is why today’s facility safety planning is not limited to cameras and advanced locking mechanisms. Because the world of security extends far beyond the front door. So a comprehensive plan needs to integrate both electronic and physical measures.
Physical Measures, Not Just for Decoration
A large courtyard and wide green space in and around a building for instance, serve a greater purpose than simple aesthetics. Why? Because over-sized concrete planters that edge the perimeter of a public facility provide a critical barrier. The horror of the Oklahoma City bombing is one example of how a vehicle, too close to a targeted facility, can become a deadly weapon. So designing wide impenetrable margins around a public building is just one aspect of an overall security plan to help prevent a similar incident.
