Meesons exhibit range of Security Portals at International Security Expo

Secured by Design Member Company, Meesons was showcasing its Security Portal range to specifiers and buyers at the 2018 International Security Expo.

Over 12,500 international buyers and influencers from Government, Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure, Law Enforcement, Military, Major Events, Transport & Borders, Cyber Security, Facilities and Public and Private sectors attended the event held at London Olympia.

Meesons recently became the first company in the UK to achieve Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 1175: Issue 7 for their C190-S1 to S3 and C3-S1 to S3 Security Portals (Security Ratings 1-3). They are designed to provide controlled access that can withstand physical attack for prestigious building entrances. Gaining these important international security standards, underpin Meesons position as the UK’s trusted provider of innovative anti-tailgating entrance control solutions.

“We had a significant amount of interest in our LPS 1175 Security Portals at this year’s Security Expo,” said Iain Entwistle, Product Marketing Manager at Meesons A.I. Ltd. “Gaining LPS 1175 and Secured by Design now means specifiers can select Security Portals in the knowledge that they offer a very elegant, refined and robust entrance control solution. That seems to be a proposition that resonated with visitors to our stand.”

Meesons’ C190-S1 to S3 and C3-S1 to S3 Security Portals can operate as a high security interlocking door to prevent tailgating or as a prestigious entrance solution, allowing the transit of multiple people at the same time.

The C190 Security Portal is configurable for different transit modes, day or night and has a spacious 1200mm wide cabin entrance, suitable for wheelchair access, making it an excellent alternative to revolving doors.

Meesons C3 Cylindrical Security Portal is an interlock system that provides 860mm wide access and is designed for areas where there is a higher level of throughput. The C3 Security Portal can be customised to a bi-parting 4 door or standard 2 door configuration, enabling quicker transit through the portal.

To meet the Loss Prevention Certification Board LPS1175 standards involved thorough technical evaluation and rigorous quality audit processes, which are ongoing over time to ensure the Security Portals continue to achieve the required level of protection.

Meesons have a number of Security Portals accredited by Secured by Design after having achieved the robust requirements of the Police Preferred Specification standard, which is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security related products in the UK.
