In the absence of an industry-wide recognised, independent testing body for security barriers in South Africa, architects and specifiers may find themselves at a loss as to which products to specify for security-sensitive projects. International third-party testing and certification removes the guesswork, providing confidence that the level of security required has been met.
Buildings like embassies, pharmaceutical storage facilities, sports stadiums, and structures housing valuable collections such as artwork require above average protection.
“Trellidor has developed a range of internationally certified sliding security gates for this type of project. These gates are some of the strongest in the world in their design class and knowing their ability to deter or delay at attacker provides a practical solution for specifiers working on a new project,” said Darryl Wakefield, Trellidor Retail and Commercial Manager.
For over two decades, Trellidor has regularly submitted selected product designs to BRE Global Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) for testing and certification.
BRE Global is based in London and is a highly respected independent, third-party certification body. It sets standards that ensure security products, amongst others, work effectively and deliver on promise.
They test security gates and other products against these standards and award a Certificate of Product Approval with a rating if they pass. These products are then listed in the Redbook of approved product suppliers used by specifiers throughout the world.
Trellidor supplies the market with three approved products: the Trellidor Plus-T900 security grille; the Trellidor Trojan II-T1000 security grille; and the Trellidor Trojan 3 EMESC T3000 security grille, certified to Level 3, the highest achieved by sliding security grilles anywhere in the world.
“These sliding gates have been developed in line with the requirements of high security contracts around the world. We built in the required level of product strength and practical aspects such ease of operation and workable locking systems,” said Darryl.
Certified Trellidor products have been installed in transport hubs, embassy staff homes and offices in volatile countries, well-known international retail chain stores, shopping centres and the London Underground rail system. In all these applications, the products were able to meet the high standard of strength and practical operation required.
“We have a highly competent commercial team available to provide South African professionals with any information and specifications they need on these products, right from the drafting of the project concept. We’re just a phone call away to provide any details on how our products work within building designs. Call me on +27 63 601 4207,” said Darryl.
