Designed, developed and in most cases tested and certified, the following pages detail our solutions for perimeter security for application in Operations and Business Critical environments.
The systems each play a key part in effecting a ‘5D’ perimeter with the capability to Detect, Deter, Delay and Deny entry to a site and Defend human, intellectual and physical assets.
High Security Perimeter Fencing and Access Solutions
Where indicated, products have been tested and certified and or approved for use by the following reputable standards, test facilities and government departments:
Loss Prevention Standard (LPS 1175) is a testing regime and certified standard developed operated by BRE and administered by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB).
It employs a strictly controlled and repeatable test methodology to evaluate the resistance to unauthorised access offered by various physical security products according to their resistance to a series of attacks employing selected hand and portable power tools.
In terms of perimeter security products, the standard provides eight Security Rating levels – starting at SR1, through to the highest at SR8. We currently hold the highest rated fencing system available in Trident 5 vertical bar and mesh system, with its LPS 1175 SR5 rating.
The Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI) is the United Kingdom government authority which provides protective security advice to businesses and organisations across the national infrastructure on security measures or protocols against a range of threats and assures a range of physical security products through an evaluation, testing, grading and approval process.
Products assured by CPNI are listed in their Catalogue of Security Equipment .
The CPNI trademark and the words ‘Approved for UK Government Use’ is issued to manufacturers for the identification of specific products which have been successfully evaluated not the company as a whole.
Conformance to BS 1722 does not provide an indication of the expected performance of a fence or gate in a security application – it is not a tested and certified rating and serves to establish minimum requirements.
It is relatively easy for this standard to be misinterpreted in the specifying process.
If you are considering specifying a fence by this standard, be sure to check product descriptions carefully against the latest specification to avoid an inferior and in most cases, less effective product being supplied.
Secured by Design
Secured by Design (SBD) is owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) and is the corporate title for a group of national police projects focusing on the design and security for new and refurbished homes, commercial premises, schools and car parks as well as acknowledgement of quality in security products and crime prevention projects.
Secured by Design do not test nor certify products.
However, SBD only grants its ‘Police Preferred Specification’ to products which have been successfully tested by recognised UK testing and certification bodies.
