Frontier Pitts adds to perimeter protection solutions with LPS 1175-rated Platinum range

Perimeter security equipment solutions manufacturer Frontier Pitts is constantly identifying today’s ever-changing security threats and, to this end, has now further developed its Automatic High-Security Gates portfolio to provide an intruder-resistant Platinum range successfully proven to resist attack to LPS 1175. The LPS 1175 Platinum gate range has been developed over the past two years by the company’s R&D team and Building Information Modelling specialist.

Many clients had been installing unrated security gates that had not been tested alongside LPS 1175 security-rated fence lines. By testing and upgrading certain elements on all models of its Automatic Security Gates, Frontier Pitts is now pleased to bring to market the first complete LPS 1175 Anti-Intruder Gate range, subsequently introducing another perimeter security layer to the ‘security onion’.

The Platinum Automatic Security Gate range with Security Ratings of 2 and 3 includes the following variants:

*Platinum Sliding Gate up to 10 metres wide

*Platinum Bi-Folding Gate: double leaf up to 10 metres wide, single leaf up to 5 metres wide

*Platinum Hinged Gate: double leaf up to 10 metres wide, single leaf up to 5 metres wide

*Platinum Pedestrian Gate: Fully-automatic, semi-automatic, manual operation

The Platinum range joins the company’s large portfolio of high-security products, further bridging the gap between Frontier Pitts’ Security Range its High-Security Anti-Terra IWA 14/PAS 68 impact-tested products. The company can offer the complete solution for all mob attack scenarios and crowded place/public realm venues.

LPS 1175 explained

LPS 1175 covers the broadest scope of physical security products and services of any publicly available standard in the world. It’s the result of many years of work by the Loss Prevention Certification Board, Government, insurers and the police and, indeed, has rapidly become a core element of physical security specification across many sectors.

The standard comprises a number of security ratings with test requirements of ascending intensity. These are measured in terms of attack tools and time available to the attacker and enable specifiers to select products according to the risks that they and their property face.

LPS 1175 can be used in a range of applications, including Critical National Infrastructure projects.

The correct specification of security products and systems is, of course, critical in terms of protecting people and property from the losses associated with crime and terrorism.
