Demand for perimeter security has increased with terrorism concerns and federal mandates such as CFATS (Chemical Facilities Anti-Terrorism Standards) from DHS (U.S. Department of Homeland Security). Our business is growing due to our ability to not only consult with clients on their security risks, but to efficiently plan and execute physical security solutions.

Universal Safety Response (USR), the Franklin, Tennessee-based manufacturer of the industry renowned GRAB active vehicle barrier, is formally announcing that it has expanded its business scope to physical perimeter security.

The evolution has been ongoing over the last two years. According the company's Vice-President Of Sales & Marketing, Wes Foss, "Demand for perimeter security has increased with terrorism concerns and federal mandates such as CFATS (Chemical Facilities Anti-Terrorism Standards) from DHS (U.S. Department of Homeland Security). Our business is growing due to our ability to not only consult with clients on their security risks, but to efficiently plan and execute physical security solutions."

By leveraging its existing product line and technical capabilities in the areas of access control planning and design, USR is well positioned to provide comprehensive perimeter security solutions.

The GRAB barriers are the flagship of the USR product line. The GRAB patented barrier design is owned and sold exclusively by USR. This unique barrier system is crash rated by the U.S. Department of State. With over 70 real world hits, no serious injuries or perimeter penetrations, the GRAB system is increasingly attracting the attention of security officials from the military, petrochemical, financial, transportation and IT industries.

In both sectors, USR has already installed security systems at sites nationwide with global expansion in the company's sales pipeline.
