The Fortis range of full height security turnstiles provides controlled pedestrian access, exclusively designed to withstand a forced attack. This new solution proudly complements the existing Meesons LPS1175 range of security entrance products. Our latest Fortis range enables specifiers to secure the perimeter entrance to a site, through to the building façade and internal zones all to LPS 1175: Issue 8, up to C5 (SR3).
Martin Washby, Technical Services Manager at Meesons A.I. explains, “We started the Fortis development with the objective of creating a full height pedestrian access solution to meet the requirements of the LPS1175 standard, whilst maintaining a very open feel when approaching and transiting through the turnstile.”
Martin goes on to explain, “Having built up extensive knowledge and experience from previously testing our LPS certified Security Portals and Security Revolving Door this enabled the team to focus on the key areas of the product to create a highly robust and functional, yet aesthetically pleasing solution.”
The Loss Prevention Standard (LPS)
A broadly recognised standard that is applied within fire and security sectors on a global scale. An LPCB certified product dramatically reduces fire safety and security risks while demonstrating due diligence. The LPCB certification provides independent verification that it will deliver significant levels of resistance to forced entry by hostile actors, be they burglars, terrorists, or protestors.
Secured by Design (SBD)
The UK flagship initiative utilises effective crime prevention and security standards for a variety of applications. Owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) and supported by the Home Office and the Planning Section of Communities and Local Government across the United Kingdom. SBD is the only way for companies to achieve Police Preferred Specifications for security-related products in the UK.
Designed with Functionality, Security and Aesthetics in-mind
Manufactured to stop criminals who are prepared to use force, the Fortis range of security turnstiles sits in a permanent state of attack readiness. With the ability to remain completely secure day and night, the 4 wing, bi-directional entrance solution helps to prevent a force attack 24hours a day.
Available as a double unit, the Fortis Duo Full Height Turnstile enables a higher throughput of users whilst preventing unauthorised entry.
Jeremy Terry Founder and Chairman at Meesons A.I. states, “I am immensely proud to introduce our new Fortis Full Height Turnstile range, which is LPS1175: Issue 8 certified up to C5 (SR3). With an increased perceived threat from mob attack, this solution adds a proven level of delay to criminals who are prepared to use force. The Fortis Full Height Turnstile range adds to our already broad offer of LPS1175: Issue 8 approved entrance control solutions, enabling specifiers to select approved products from the perimeter to the building façade and through to internal zones.”
