Procter Contracts launches Pro-Secure SR1 and SR2 security-rated entrance gates
Procter Contracts is launching the Pro-Secure family of security-rated entrance gates comprising SR1 and SR2 swing gates and sliding gates. Swing gates are available in single-leaf and double-leaf formats, and all of the new gates can be manufactured in a variety of sizes for use at vehicle and pedestrian access points in a wide range of different sectors.
The Pro-Secure gates have been independently tested and verified as achieving security rating SR1 or SR2 as defined by the internationally recognised LPCB standard LPS 1175 Issue 8.0, and they are therefore listed in the LPCB Red Book. The LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) is part of BRE Global, a third-party approvals body, and LPS 1175 is the standard for certification of intruder-resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers. To achieve the SR1 and SR2 certifications, the gates had to be tested and proven to resist sustained attacks using specified hand tools for defined periods.
In most cases, Pro-Secure gates will control vehicular access but they are equally suitable for use where large numbers of pedestrians enter or leave a site. Typical applications include commercial and industrial premises, warehouses and logistics hubs, waste recycling centres, schools and other educational campuses, hospitals and care homes, sportSR1 Swing Gatess grounds and leisure facilities, data centres, government and defence establishments, airports, docks and utility sites.
Features that help the SR1 gates achieve their security rating include all-steel robust construction, heavy-gauge 868 wire mesh cladding fully welded to the frame, reinforced latch areas and, for the swing gates, hinge protection plates. The SR2 gates additionally benefit from double cladding with 358 steel mesh to resist cutting and climbing.
All of Procter’s Pro-Secure gates are hot-dip galvanized for long-lasting protection against corrosion. Customers can specify an optional polyester powder coating on top of the galvanizing for additional corrosion protection and improved aesthetics. Standard colours are black and green, or almost any RAL colour can be chosen.
Smaller gates in the Pro-Secure range can be manually operated but larger gates are powered or automated, and these are CE marked to the Machinery Directive.
Procter Contracts provides a comprehensive service that includes site surveys, security risk assessments, design, manufacture, installation, commissioning and, for powered/automated gates, CE marking and maintenance contracts. Furthermore, the company supplies and installs a variety of access control systems for powered and automatic gates.
“We have been manufacturing security gates for decades, so it is great news for customers that we now have independent certification by BRE and can market the Pro-Secure gates as LPS 1175 SR1 and SR2 security rated. This will be particularly beneficial for specifiers and contractors throughout the UK working on Secured by Design projects, for which we have been an accredited installer for several years.”
Hywel Davies, Managing Director of Procter Contracts
To complement the Pro-Secure gates, Procter Contracts can supply and install high-security fencing – including electric pulse fencing – plus CCTV systems and street furniture such as fixed or rising bollards, Armco barrier, rising-arm barriers, speed ramps and one-way flow plates.
