Frontier Pitts Ltd has become the first company to achieve the LPCB certification for an HVM Bi-folding Gate to both the international standard for vehicle resistance (IWA14) and forced entry protection (LPS1175). The Terra Bi-folding Gate is the first and only HVM product to be listed in the Red Book Live to both IWA14-1 and LPS1175.
The HVM Terra Bi-folding Gate has been successfully designed to resist manual forced entry in accordance with LPS 1175: Issue 8 Security Rating 2 (B3). Such attacks involve the use of a wide array of highly portable and concealable manual tools lasting at least 3 minutes. Furthermore, in a world first, the Double Leaf Terra Bi-folding Gate also met the requirements of IWA14-1, stopping a 7.2t vehicle travelling at 30mph, resulting in minimal penetration.
Sally Osmond, Brand & Development Manager of Frontier Pitts commented
“After months of development, we are extremely proud to see our Terra Bi-folding Gate become the first product ever to be listed in the Red Book Live as being certified to both IWA14-1 and LPS1175. Frontier Pitts leads the way again by becoming the first perimeter security manufacturer to have a Red Book listing for an impact tested and certified HVM product to IWA. We have worked very hard in developing the vast portfolio of LPS1175 Bi-folding Gates, developing the first Automatic Bi-folding Gate to achieve the LPCB certification, then taking the next step to achieve the joint certification with an HVM product. This accomplishment now cements the Frontier Pitts brand as the Bi-folding Gate manufacturer.”
Having worked closely with LPCB for nearly a decade, Frontier Pitts is proud of our large range of intruder resistant Automatic Gates and Turnstiles that have achieved certification to LPS1175. The Terra Bi-folding Gate combines our expertise in both IWA 14 impact testing and LPS1175 fields, providing our customers with both significant levels of resistance to forced entry and hostile vehicle mitigation in a one product solution.
Richard Flint, BRE’s Technical and Business Development Manager commented “Frontier Pitts have once again stepped out from the crowd. Not only are they the first manufacturer to successfully meet LPCB’s rigorous criteria for certification to the internationally recognised IWA14-1 standard for vehicle impact resistance, the Terra Bi-folding Gate has also achieved certification to the highly demanding LPS1175 standard – achieving a Security Rating 2 (B3) forced entry classification. This was no mean feat and provides specifiers and other stakeholders with unrivalled certainty regarding the resistance to vehicle impact and manual forced entry they can expect to receive from this when deploying this gate.”
