Meesons has achieved a world-first after announcing that its C190-S1 to S3 Security Portals have gained approval to Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 1175: Issue 7 Security Ratings 1 to 3.
This is an important milestone for Meesons, a company that prides itself on being the UK’s trusted entry control innovator. The LPS 1175 certificate was presented at this year’s IFSEC International event in London by Richard Flint from BRE.
Gaining LPS 1175 benefits customers because it provides independent test evidence that Meesons’ C190-S1 to S3 portals meet the highest security standards, whilst providing specifiers with an entrance control solution with architectural appeal.
The C190 enables 24/7 secure controlled access with a spacious 1200mm wide cabin entrance, suitable for wheelchair access, along with options to configure the portal to enable different transit modes day or night.
LPS 1175 is an important security standard for forced entry resistance. It sets out requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listing of intruder resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers.
Achieving LPS 1175 strengthens Meesons position as a leading supplier and installer of a wide range of innovative anti-tailgating entrance control solutions.
The C190-S1 to S3 Security Portals now feature in the RedBook list of LPCB approved fire and security products, a key reference for specifiers, regulators, designers and facility managers looking for high performance security products and services.
“We are delighted to be the first company to achieve LPS 1175 for our C190-S1 to S3 Portals,” said Jeremy Terry, Managing Director at Meesons A.I. Ltd. “It now means specifiers can select LPS 1175 Security Portals in the knowledge that they offer a very elegant, refined and robust entrance control solution.”
LPCB standards and approvals for security products are widely recognised around the world. Testing Meesons Cylindrical C190-S1 to S3 Security Portals involved extremely thorough technical evaluation and rigorous quality audit processes to ensure they achieved the required level of protection.
The C190-S1 to S3 Security Portals now provide security specifiers in the commercial, government, education and other sectors with a robust, physical barrier at entry points, yet one that still retains a high level of aesthetic appeal.
Third party certification issued by LPCB is based on a combination of testing and ongoing surveillance audits. That provides security specifiers with another level of assurance that Meesons’ C190-S1 to S3 Security Portals will continue to deliver the performance achieved during testing.
Meesons is committed to driving value and efficiency through its smart physical entrance control systems. The company promotes the intelligent use of 3D modelling software, whilst making high quality technical advice and design guidance freely available to customers.
Meesons offer a wide range of bespoke and innovative anti-tailgating solutions, making it the preferred choice for a growing number of security specifiers looking for a trusted entry control innovator.
