brussels - A Belgian company has developed a mobile barrier that must stop terrorists if they want to drive on a crowd with freight or vans.
Terrorists drive more and more with freight or vans on a crowd. Marc Weissberg, boss of the Brussels company Pitagone, saw members with eyes. 'Our philosophy is that you never know in advance what the danger is from. So it had to be a flexible system, 'says Weissberg against the Belgian newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws.
'No heavy and expensive changes to the infrastructure of a square. No concrete blocks where you need cranes and a lot of manpower to place them. But a mobile barrier that can build one person in a few minutes. '
A recent crash test in the German Münster recently proved that a truck of 7.5 tons was forced by the mobile barrier of Pitagone. The Belgians already delivered to Roland Garros, Eurodisney in Paris and the Swedish city of Malmö.
