STI’s summer of sport Stopper strength tests

Summer of Sport

In celebration of 2019’s scintillating summer of sport STI’s famous Stopper series has competed in a number of sport themed strength tests.

Earlier this month the England Women’s Football Team reached the semi-final of the FIFA Women’s World Cup for a second time.

Despite narrowly missing out on a spot in the final to the USA, much to the delight of our colleagues in Michigan, the Lionesses success inspired us to test the strength of the new Low Profile Universal Stopper against our very own international footballer.

Football vs Low Profile Universal Stopper

The new Low Profile Universal Stopper is an invaluable deterrent in the fight against false alarms, featuring a refined slimline design that provides the necessary protection without encroaching into the surrounding area.

An optional sounder is now accompanied by a flashing LED which acts as an additional visual alert, ideal for noisy environments or adapted settings for people hard of hearing.

While the alarm and LED combination guards against malicious activation, a sturdy polycarbonate shell deflects wayward sports equipment making it ideal for schools, sports halls, and shopping centres.

Hot on the heels of their footballing counterparts, the England Men’s Cricket Team reached a semi-final of their own at the ICC Cricket World Cup.

Only a stone’s throw from Taylor House, the English cricketers breezed past Australia at Edgbaston before winning the competition in emphatic style at Lord’s.

In honour of “champagne super over” star Jofra Archer and national hero Ben Stokes we invited our in-house all-rounder, and local cricket legend, to test his cricketing skills against the Steel Web Stopper.

The heavy-duty steel cage is ideal for sporting environments where sports equipment and apparatus poses a risk to vital life safety devices.

Constructed from plastic-coated galvanised steel rod our extensive range of cages protects expensive devices from damage, without interfering with legitimate operation in an emergency.

Rounding off the summer of sport, old rivalries were renewed at Wimbledon as familiar foes Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal faced off for an astonishing 40th time; aptly named #FEDAL40.

Serving up an ace of our own, the Euro Stopper went up against a powerful forehand in our final strength test.

Tennis Ball vs Euro Stopper

We are often asked how strong are our “plastic” covers – the Euro Stopper and our entire Call Point Protector range are manufactured from UV-stabilised polycarbonate.

The tough, clear polycarbonate housing can withstand the severest of knocks preventing both accidental damage and vandalism to manual call points or emergency buttons.

The versatile Euro Stopper retrofits over electronic switches protecting against accidental activation in gymnasiums and leisure facilities – a break seal can be added for additional protection.
