Secured by Design (SBD) member company, Lochrin Bain has announced the first of several new product launches for 2020, with its latest Combi Palisade design successfully achieving Security Rating A1 (SR1) to LPS 1175 Issue: 8, an industry first for perimeter security manufacturers.

With various specifications of this fence designed over the years ranging from CPNI rated for Critical National Infrastructure through to the company’s first LPS 1175 SR3 design in 2016, this new Patented Palisade system was developed to compete against SR1 rated mesh alternatives such as 868 Twinwire and 358, offering the same attack delay times and at a similar cost, something that has been missing from not only Lochrin Bain’s portfolio but the industry as a whole.

Palisade has always held different advantages to welded mesh panel systems including its capability to rake easily over uneven grounds, while offering greater tolerances during installation. Traditional designs gained bad press over the years with recent attack tests proving that a generic front fix pales on Palisade allow the fence to be breached in under 12 seconds using basic hand tools. Using this new Combi Palisade SR1, design architects, security consultants and contractors can now safely specify a product that offers clients a formidable fence line at a competitive price.

The system is SBD recognised and conforms to BS1722 Part 12:2016 carrying full certification to LPS 1175 Security Rating A1 Issue:8 as featured in the BRE Red Book. LPS 1175 is the requirements and testing procedures for LPCB approval. ‘LPS’ stands for ‘Loss Prevention Standard’ and LPS 1175 is one of many standards by the LPCB ‘Loss Prevention Certificate Board. The LPS 1175 standard focuses on physical security including security fencing, with ratings split into different security ratings, with test requirements of ascending intensity. These are measured in terms of attack tools and also time available to the attacker. Once tested and approved, security rated products are entered into the LPCB Red Book, which is a key reference for specifiers, regulators, designers and end users to select products according to the risks that they and their property face.

To ensure a complete security solution both pedestrian and vehicle access gates have been designed to complement the system gaining the required security rating, while the fence can be integrated with security solutions such as PIDS and security toppings for added security.
