Frontier Pitts solution for this Telecoms Datacentre integrated PAS 68 Terra Blockers and Static Terra Bollards with Security Hinged Gates to provide Hostile Vehicle Mitigation protection with vehicle and pedestrian traffic control.
When Frontier Pitts were shown the initial perimeter security specification certain parts contravened health and safety regulations. As the Automation Specialists, Frontier Pitts liaised closely with the Architect to create a scheme which met the following objectives:
- High Security of entire boundary to prevent ram-raiding
- Prevent viewing of loading/offloading in the yard
- Deter climbing into site (no footfalls) Emergency Pedestrian Access
- Health & Safety regulations achieved even in the location’s limited space
The program of works included Frontier Pitts Hinged Security Gate and our ‘Wicket’ Pedestrian Gate installed on the loading bay area. These were backed by Hostile Vehicle Mitigation Terra Blockers (7.5t@50mph), Static Terra Neptune Bollards (7.5t@40mph) and Removable Static Terra Neptune Bollards (7.5t@40mph)
The Emergency Exit Pedestrian Gate, pictured here with adjacent to the Hinged Vehicle Gate, was fitted with a push bar to open. This high security single point locking push bar has an integrated electro mechanical/solenoid deadlock for use with access control systems. Automatic bolting upon door closure is fitted as standard. SATE override fitted allowing emergency escape at all times via internal push pad with instructions “push” at the point of use. The unit is fitted with a manual mechanical key override as standard.
The success of this installation illustrates the benefits of working with perimeter security experts at point of design and specification to create an achievable scheme and exceed the clients expectations.
