Sydney Show Finished Safe and Sound

Over the past 16 months, AML Risk Management have made their number one priority ensuring public safety through the use of one of the most advanced pieces of Portable Hostile Vehicle Mitigation equipment. Engineered and manufactured by Meridian Rapid Defence Group in the United States, the Archer 1200 is the world’s strongest and most effective portable vehicle barrier.


Initially Meridian began creating fixed solutions mainly for military use, however a need for a portable solution became ever-present and thus the Archer 1200 was born. Through the evident changes to global threat levels and the prevalence of vehicle attacks on the rise in recent years, a significant number of stakeholders are seeking a rapid solution which suits the smaller time frame of annual events. The Archer 1200 portable anti-vehicle barrier has a wide diversity of deployment options making it suitable to different environments and threat levels.

Most recently the Archer 1200’s have been seen at the 2019 Sydney Royal Easter Show. Securing the site entry was a necessity for the 2019 event and was complete by strategically deploying 20 Archer barriers. The barriers could be seen at two critical entry points of the show, with emergency access cables put into play. Over the 12 day event patrons noticed the barriers and were left feeling a sense of security.


AML Risk Management have supplied portable barriers to Melbourne, Sydney and Perth and intend on continuing the provision hostile vehicle solutions. “Breach by hostile vehicle is a threat that shouldn’t be taken lightly” says Managing Director Andrew Duffy who over-saw the recent deployment at the Sydney Show.

Deployment configurations are determined and explained in a free no-obligation assessment. Deployment times, environment, threat levels and access are all factors considered during the process of assessing an event or location in order to deploy the barriers in the most beneficial way.

Sydney Royal Easter Show Introduces NSW to the Worlds Strongest Portable Vehicle Barrier

An exciting new addition has been made to the safety and security planning of the 2019 Sydney Royal Easter Show. This year, over the 12 days of the event, 20 Archer 1200 barriers will be securing two areas around the site to safeguard the public from breach by dangerous vehicles. This is the first appearance the barriers have made in New South Wales after 12 months of securing events in Melbourne. The barriers are expected to continue securing sites in Sydney as the 20 barriers will remain in New South Wales upon conclusion of the Royal Easter Show.

In March 2018 AML Risk Management proudly introduced the Archer 1200 portable hostile vehicle mitigation barriers into the list of Melbourne’s available safety and security resources. While a range of products are readily available to secure events the Archer 1200 remains the only portable barrier to hold Certification of the United States’ Safety Act. Since their debut deployment in Australia at the 2018 South Melbourne Market Mussel & Jazz festival, the Archer 1200 has secured events across Melbourne and Perth. The unique engineering of the Archer 1200 allows organisers a simple, fast and effective solution to risk of vehicle intrusion.


Events and festivities across Australia are no strangers to the ever-changing conditions of the outdoors. From markets to music events and everything in between, attendees are rarely deterred by varied temperatures and weather settings. With the public displaying a dedicated and enthusiastic attitude towards outdoor events in public spaces, organisers must remain vigilant when it comes to providing a safe and secured environment both externally and internally.

Reflecting on changing global circumstances over recent years, the prevalence of incidents involving individuals or groups intent on causing harm and inducing fear has increased. While fatalities and injuries inflicted by such occurrences have caused deep sadness across nations, reactions have been that of unity to show strength and resilience during these times. Implementing mitigation strategies such as the Archer 1200 anti-vehicle system is one of the many ways organisers are responding to ensure public safety.

Melbourne and Sydney now have immediate access to the Archer 1200 system. With its modular and versatile design, this system is not limited in its ability to protect. Each event or location may present specific requirements and varied threat levels, both of which can be factored into any deployment configuration put into place.
