Metal Mesh Specialist Expands Physical Security Range
The Expanded Metal Company has bolstered its offering to the physical and perimeter security sector with the introduction of a new high security gate solution. The company has launched a new SR2 Gate system, which forms part of its ExMesh range of security products.
Designed and manufactured by The Expanded Metal Company, the ExMesh SR2 Gate has been certified to Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) Security Rating (SR) 2: Issue 7, meaning that it can resist attack from attempts at forced entry with tools including bolt cutters, hacksaws, drills and claw hammers.
It has been developed to offer a flexible, certified and physically robust access solution for at-risk buildings and sites, and offers one of the largest security rated opening options available, enabling two lanes of through traffic to move through a perimeter.
The ExMesh SR2 Gate offers pedestrian access ranging from 800mm to 2m wide and vehicle access ranging from 2m to 12m wide.
Both pedestrian and vehicle gate options open 180˚ for inward and outward use and are available at heights of 2.4m and 3m. They can be fitted with toppings such as anti-climb measures and have anti-climb flats and anti-lift brackets, plus inverted hinges, as standard. The system complements the ExMesh SR2 range of fencing products and its introduction follows last year’s launch of an ExMesh SR3 Gate, rated to LPS 1175 SR3: issue 7.
George Hutchinson, product manager for ExMesh, commented: “More and more operators of at-risk facilities – including utilities sites and Government infrastructure – are looking to certified solutions as a means of enhancing their perimeter security measures. The ExMesh SR2 Gate system therefore can play an important part in meeting market demand for enhanced physical security.
“In addition, ExMesh SR2 Gates can easily be integrated into our existing LPS 1175 SR2 rated fencing system, meaning that contractors and end users can implement a fully SR2 certified perimeter solution using products supplied The Expanded Metal Company.”
Philip Astley, managing director of The Expanded Metal Company, added: “Our ExMesh product range is continuing to develop in line with the needs of the sectors we serve – and the threats they face from criminal and terrorist actions.
We’re proud to be starting off 2018 with an additional security solution, one that has been designed and manufactured using our extensive engineering expertise and in-depth knowledge of the security market."
