A prison is a special location. This is not only because of its purpose. It is one of the few locations where security is put in place for potential threats from outside and inside. The perceived risk is that the location can be attractive to theft, smuggling and / or attacks. A prison, or cell complex, requires a highly specialized approach. Bavak has years of experience as a supplier of various solutions for the security of prisons and other cell complexes.

Drone Detection

When we look at security we can divide it into different rings. In the past this was done in 2D, but nowadays there is also a threat that comes from drones. This is why we are now talking about 3D security, because we need to take the threat coming from above into account. Bavak offers very professional solutions to respond to this drone threat. These Drone Detection systems are available as permanent installations and for rent as well. This Drone Detection solution has proven to be successful in various occasions.


A Bavak speedgate is the best to use for the controlled opening and closing of the entrance to a location. A speedgate is an electromechanically driven gate consisting of panels that open simultaneously on two sides. There four different Bavak speedgates . The speedgate can be operated through access control systems and needs to be secured with detection loops and photocells. Bavak Security Group offers the optimal solution for almost all access control and also parking application needs. The biggest common denominator is that these are all developed according to the same principles, ‘reliability, quality and durability’. Bavak offers all speedgates with a low cost of ownership.

The Bavak roadblockers are available in different heights and widths and can be used in and on any road surface. Roadblockers can be optionally equipped with lights for extra safety in dark conditions. Bavak has over 50 years of experience with high-security technology.
