Meesons recently launched the new Fortis range of Full Height Turnstiles, certified to Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 1175: Issue 8 up to C5 (SR3). The Fortis Full Height Turnstile provides controlled pedestrian access on the perimeter fence line and is designed to withstand a forced attack. This entrance control solution complements Meesons LPS 1175 range of certified Security Revolving Door and Security Portals to provide a robust physical barrier on the perimeter fence line. The Fortis range now enables specifiers to secure the perimeter entrance to a site, through to the building façade and internal zones all to LPS 1175: Issue 8, up to C5 (SR3).

Meesons’ LPS 1175 Issue 8 Full Height Turnstile is in a permanent state of attack-readiness, meaning it requires no user intervention to stop criminals who are prepared to use force. The Fortis Turnstile is a high security, 4-wing rotor, bi-directional full height turnstile that remains as secure during the day is it does at night, preventing forced attack 24/7. Available as a double unit, the Fortis Duo Full Height Turnstile enables a higher throughput of users whilst preventing unauthorised entry.

The Fortis range features different operational transit modes to aid site managers by selecting either free-flow exit, unidirectional or bidirectional flow of authenticated users.

Alfie Hosker, Secured by Design, said: “Meesons continually produce a wide range of security rated products which can be utilised across a number of applications, from portals and turnstiles to HVM measures to highlight several such products. I look forward to another successful SBD membership period and know that they will continue to develop and expand their extensive Police Preferred Specification range even further”.

Ian Hoey, Head of UK Sales at Meesons, commented; “We are delighted to have renewed our successful partnership with Secured by Design. Since joining in 2018 we have continued to increase our approved range of entrance control solutions, providing confidence to our clients that our products meet the high standards set to gain SBD approval.”
