Beale Street Entertainment District

Beale Street Entertainment District, the Home of the Blues in downtown Memphis, wanted to secure this downtown pedestrian area from vehicular traffic. They partnered with Concentric Security, LLC and Heald Ltd to develop a vehicle mitigation solution to meet their security needs and preserve the district’s atmosphere for their guests.

With underground utilities providing a challenge, the Matador 6 bollard arrays were the ideal solution to securing this popular tourist destination with the crash rated shallow mount foundation. Preserving the surrounding look and feel of this popular tourist destination was also important. The Matadors are customizable and were given bollard covers to blend in with the look of the street lights.

David Wachs, President of Concentric Security, LLC said: “We are proud to be able to partner with Heald Ltd on another great install of the Matador product in the US. Great partnerships make great projects and Beale Street is a testament to that strength.”

Heald director’s Debbie Heald MBE and Rod Heald, visited Beale Street, Memphis to inspect the install, commenting; “Our presence in the USA continues to grow from strength to strength as a result of strong partnerships with our distribution network. They continue to excel in promoting the benefits of our range of patent protected products, which includes the Matador, the only bollard available in the world which operates by sliding open to permit access. We look forward to increasing our footprint within the region and continuing to develop excellent partnerships with our distribution network.”
