GJD, a manufacturer and designer of professional external detector equipment and LED illuminators, has acquired Radiovisor’s infrared beam and barrier technology plus all related intellectual property rights. Radiovisor’s PREDATOR range of dual, quad and tower active IR beam sets plus the ATEX approved GS100 beam for use in hazardous areas will be manufactured at GJD’s factory in Heywood and will enhance GJD’s perimeter security product range.
The high security PREDATOR system has been accessed by the CPNI panel and has met its requirements to be included within the Catalogue of Security Equipment (CSE) ‘Approved for UK Government Use’. The integral MM100 beam sets additionally hold NATO codification.
Radiovisor’s IR beam technology will complement GJD’s product range. It will provide installers, specifiers and consultants with a ‘one stop shop’ for IP connected detectors, active infrared beams, alarm devices and CCTV LED illuminators for all aspects of external security detection and illumination.
Mark Tibbenham, Managing Director of GJD, stated, ‘We are extremely proud to make this announcement. A strategic acquisition of this nature will enable the company to substantially develop and grow in terms of security technology innovation. There is a huge demand for high-end and intelligent IR beam sets as well as reliable detectors that can be used in hazardous areas.
‘It is our sincere belief that GJD’s perimeter detection equipment is at the forefront of security, in terms of detection ability, reliability and freedom from false alarms. The inclusion of Radiovisor infrared beam technology will even further enhance our product offering.’
Stephen Lasenby, Managing Director of Radiovisor, added, ‘GJD is a professional and well respected company and is ideally placed to take our IR beam technology forward. We are confident that our customers and suppliers will benefit greatly from the GJD brand, its focus on technology innovation and world class service. Radiovisor will continue to support its customers during the transition process to ensure it is as smooth as possible.’
