Introducing trees and planting into urban landscapes provides numerous benefits, with research showing positive effects on social and environmental well-being, evoking a sense of pride of place within communities.
To facilitate the integration of attractive planting into our public spaces whilst also mitigating the threat of vehicle-borne attacks.
The RhinoGuard™ 75/50 Planter Frame provides architects and designers with an ideal alternative to the more traditional methods of hostile vehicle mitigation, offering exceptional levels of security along with the benefits of introducing planting to urban spaces.
The design of the RhinoGuard™ frame allows for the root ball of a medium sized tree to be contained inside the planter, providing landscape architects with the freedom they require to introduce creative planting solutions into the built environment.
The high strength frame is designed to fit seamlessly inside a range of cosmetic planter styles in various materials, providing a design-led, high performance security solution that can both aesthetically enhance and protect any scheme.
Planters are available in both traditional and contemporary designs, with a variety of material options, including concrete, timber and steel. For larger schemes, the frame also provides an ideal opportunity for completely bespoke solutions.
