Despite the threats, risks and challenges, British Security Firm Frontier Pitts Commissions yet another project in Iraq Frontier Pitts, the British Manufacturer of Security Gates, Automatic Barriers, Bollards and Blockers has successfully overcome another challenge of operating in a hostile environment during extremely testing political and environmental circumstances.

For a region where security has recently been described as “remaining difficult” by the Chief of the General Staff, General Sir Nick Carter, Frontier Pitts have again risen to the challenge and proved their place in the market. From operating in such harsh and hostile environments, including Camp Bastion for more than 10 years, Frontier Pitts have met many challenges resulting in knowledgeable experience for the specialist. Iraq is one of the ultimate testing grounds for high security perimeter protection in the World. Alongside the continual security threat, the specialist equipment is installed in temperatures reaching 60°C plus and the local personnel are pushed to their limit by the demanding terrain.

This particular project saw the installation of numerous Terra Sliding Cantilevered Gates, Terra Hinged Gates and Terra Manual Barriers, which have all been successfully IWA 14 and PAS 68 impact tested in the UK by an independent crash test house and witnessed by the Government. Frontier Pitts brief included the bespoke design and supply of the equipment with the latest British engineered technology, manufactured to suit the specific site and environmental conditions of the Basra oil fields. Despite all the challenges and difficulties, Frontier Pitts sent a team of engineers to install all the equipment, and whilst training local personnel, the program was completed with full on site commissioning. All the HVM equipment was commissioned in accordance to the International IWA14-2 and the British PAS 69 specification, further cementing Frontier Pitts as the top name in the global HVM market.
Any equipment or product installed in such hostile environments, and rigorously operated by the Army, demonstrates the credentials of quality and British Engineering. This is backed by product accreditations including PSSA (Perimeter Security Suppliers Association) Verified certification. An ongoing maintenance service will be provided by the trained local agent with, support and training from Frontier Pitts. The exceptional success of this project illustrates that Frontier Pitts has yet again proven to the world that they can succeed in any challenge. This is another opportunity that Frontier Pitts have embraced to dominate and stand out amongst the world of security firms.

Other entrances were secured with Frontier Pitts Terra Blocker.

The Terra Blocker has been successfully PAS 68 impact tested to stop a 7.5t vehicle travelling at 50mph.
