Meesons, the leading provider of anti-tailgating entrance control solutions, has introduced Rev 190, the world’s first revolving door to achieve certification to Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 1175: Issue 8 up to C5 (SR3).
By introducing the world’s first LPS 1175 approved Revolving Door, Meesons has raised the bar in terms of security for prestigious buildings and entrance ways where retaining aesthetics is a priority.
LPCB certification of the Rev 190 Revolving Door to LPS 1175 provides independent verification that it will deliver the significant levels of resistance to forced entry by hostile actors, be they burglars, terrorists or protestors. The LPS 1175 standard reflects a broad range of threat scenarios including tool attacks by intruders acting without fear of attracting attention to their actions by using tools and entry techniques likely to generate sustained levels of noise. This is a threat that is not necessarily covered by other security standards, such as EN 1627, as explained in BRE’s Specifiers Guide to Façade Security Standards.
Being independently tested to LPS 1175 in standard operation, means that Meesons’ Rev 190 Security Revolving Door meets the highest standards against physical attack at all times, whilst providing specifiers with an entrance control solution that offers high architectural appeal.
Meesons’ LPS 1175 Issue 8 Revolving Door is in a permanent state of attack-readiness, meaning it requires no user intervention, or secondary layer of defence, to stop criminals who are prepared to use force. The Rev 190 Security Revolving Door is a high security, fully automatic 4-wing, bi-directional Revolving Door that remains as secure during the day is it does at night, preventing forced attack 24/7. At the same time, its sleek, stylish design creates a welcoming and non-intimidating aesthetic for legitimate building users. This makes it highly suitable for prestigious projects in the commercial, office, R&D and retail sectors.
While other revolving doors may rely on a secondary barrier, such as a night shutter, to provide forced entry protection, the Rev 190 Revolving Door is a fully attack ready solution that combines functionality and forced entry protection into a single product.
Meesons introduced the Rev 190 following demand from customers for a revolving door that enables a high frequency of users to transit, whilst preventing unauthorised entry. In doing so, the Rev 190 Security Revolving Door addresses the need for aesthetically pleasing, robust physical security at the entrance.
Legitimate building users can present their ID card or biometric data in order to traverse Rev 190 Security Revolving Door. When specified with anti-tailgating detection the single-person authentication prevents unauthorised individuals from piggybacking their way into the facility by closely following the person in front.
The Rev 190 features a range of transit modes that can be operational day/night. These allow building managers to choose between free-flow, single person authenticated access control or lock down modes, depending on their requirements.
“Our new Rev 190 Security Revolving Door is a ground-breaking addition to the revolving door sector,” said Iain Entwistle, Product Marketing Manager at Meesons. “It makes a step change in terms of security by being the first to achieve LPS 1175 Issue 8 up to C5 (SR3) and is in a permanent attack-ready state 24/7. That gives architects and security specifiers an ability to achieve their aesthetic aspirations whilst providing their client with full controllability of who is entering the facility.”
Richard Flint, BRE’s Physical Security Technical and Business Development Manager, commented “Meesons have again demonstrated their willingness to listen to the needs of risk managers and their ability to develop products capable of delivering the high levels of resistance to forced entry required to achieve LPCB certification to LPS 1175. We expect the Rev 190 Security Revolving Door to generate high levels of interest as it is the first to be certified to LPS 1175, a standard of protection sought by a growing number of specifiers around the world wishing to mitigate the threat of forced entry into the facilities they are responsible for.
Having been certified by LPCB to LPS 1175 the Rev 190 is compliant with the design of secure doorsets as set out in The Building Regulations Approved Document Q. This makes the Rev 190 the only Revolving Door to be full complaint in accordance with Document Q.
The product has also been accredited by Secured by Design (SBD) and becomes the only Revolving Door accredited by SBD. SBD is the national police crime prevention initiative, for meeting its Police Preferred Specification for its robust qualities to deter and reduce crime. SBD is the only way for companies to achieve Police Preferred Specification for security-related products in the UK.
