Frontier Pitts supplied HVM bollards and hinged swing gates for a £440m shopping centre in Oxford.
With the large numbers of visitors each year, all shopping centres are classed as Crowded Place venues amd HVM protection was required for the site. All installations needed to blend in to the surrounding areas so not to deter visitors.
The service yard entrance for deliveries also required an automatic security gate.
Static Terra Venus bollards were installed around the perimeter of the shopping centre with a stainless-steel sleeved finish and black banding which reflects white. The HVM Terra Venus bollards have been successfully impact tested to the British PAS 68 specification at 30mph and proven to stop a vehicle attack. In some areas removable Terra Venus bollards have been installed.
For the services yard, Frontier Pitts supplied manual hinged swing security gates, one with an integrated pedestrian gate. Rather than securing the gate leaf to a hinged post, Frontier Pitts worked closely with the construction company to engineer the gate leaf to be hung from the building's steelwork. Frontier Pitts also manufactured the special design infill panels.
