Frontier Pitts Counter Terrorist Shallow Blockers, Jupiter Bollards and Terra Diamond Turnstile at a Critical National Rail Infrastructure premises

VDA (Vehicle Dynamic Assessment)A key National Rail company contacted Frontier Pitts to protect particular sites nationwide that were deemed critical assets to their infrastructure and therefore particularly vulnerable.

Achieving the right level of security at such locations is challenging, but a challenge Frontier Pitts endeavour to achieve for all its customers. Preliminary work included detailed VDA’s (Vehicle Dynamic Assessments) by Consulting Engineers DJ Goode to determine the potential threat to each individual site.

Bespoke Installation For this location the threat was deemed to be 7.5t @ 50mph during the VDA (Vehicle Dynamic Assessment) stage. Therefore Frontier Pitts compiled a complete HVM (Hostile Vehicle Mitigation) Solution of a Terra Shallow Blocker, Terra Jupiter Bollards and Terra Diamond Turnstile for pedestrian access.The Terra Shallow Blocker provides the main gate with CT (counter terrorist) protection. Due to underground services in the area, a shallow blocker unit was required. The Terra Jupiter Bollards provide the perimeter fence line and the Terra Diamond Turnstile with CT protection. The line of bollards has been installed with 1200mm gaps between upright faces in accordance with IWA14/PAS69 installation guidelines.The Terra Diamond Turnstile was installed to provide high security pedestrian access control. The LPS1175 rated turnstiles, both to Grade 4, have been successfully tested to prove that they can resist an intensive attack test, by an independent third party, lasting at least 10 minutes using a wide array of hand tools and battery powered tools. The Terra Diamond Turnstiles are the only turnstiles currently on the market that are approved to LPS 1175 Security Ratings 3 and 4. To complete the installation soil excavated from the blocker installation was recycled into an HVM bund on another part of the site.
