Enhancing Counter-Terrorism Products
Premier has increased its portfolio of counter-terrorism level security products with a full LPS1175 D10 (SR4) Jansen-façade curtain-walling system. Accredited by Secured by Design and in line with the UK government’s ‘Protect Duty’** legislation, Premier’s latest range of doors, screens, and windows, sits alongside their LPS1175 C5 (SR3) systems unveiled at the start of 2022.
The Essex-based company will further enhance their product range of counter-terrorism defence systems later this year when they complete testing and assessments of their LPS1175 E10 (SR5) designs with the BRE (Buildings Research Establishment).
Matching their commitment to producing high-quality, certificated security products, Premier is also meeting the challenge global warming by integrating ‘green’ design technology into their systems.
Premier’s use of thermally-broken profiles creating U-Values, insulation, and air & water tightness, helps the company match the standards achieved by Passivhaus certification in line with ISO 13790 (EN), the energy performance of buildings.
The impressive U-Values help create controlled temperature conditions resisting both excessive heat and cold conditions.
** Protect Duty – known widely as ‘Martyn’s Law’ – is due to be implemented in 2023. It comes in the wake of a number of terrorist attacks in public spaces across the UK – most notably, the Manchester Arena bombing. The purpose of Protect Duty is to improve security in public spaces, protecting and enhancing the safety of both visitors and staff.
Of course, businesses already have a duty of care under existing legislation – the Protect Duty will clarify these responsibilities, pulling them into a single framework – the ultimate aim is to prevent the repetition of past failures. The Home Office estimates that 650,000 UK businesses could be affected by Protect Duty – and many businesses will have to formally assess terrorism risk for the first time.
Global Climate Emergency
We are facing a global climate emergency with buildings having been identified as a significant culprit of carbon emissions – accountable for 35% of total energy consumption.
Premier Security & Fire Consultants Ltd is meeting that challenge with a ground-breaking range of high-security doors, windows, and curtain walling systems armed with ‘green credentials’ matching the standards achieved by Passivhaus certification and in line with ISO 13790 (EN), the energy performance of buildings.
Premier’s use of certificated, thermally-broken profiles creating U-Values, insulation, air & water tightness results put in the front line of combining security and safety with energy-saving technology.
The impressive U-Values help create controlled temperature conditions resisting both excessive heat and cold conditions. And Premier’s ability to integrate energy-reducing devices into our LPS1175 SR2; LPS1175 C5 (SR3) and LPS1175 D10 (SR4) security rated doors, windows, and curtain-walling systems delivers a UK market first.
Premier Security & Fire Consultants Ltd is also delighted to announce that ballistic testing of our thermally broken, modular, portable, steel-walling system has passed the most stringent, military-level examinations and will be ready for a Q3, 2022 market launch.
The high-security system, which can be transported, erected, and disassembled in any terrain, provides end-users with a portable wall, ceiling, and door design that can resist 7.62x51mm AP (armour-piercing) bullets and can be produced to variable sizes.
Premier’s designs were tested using guidance from EN1522 and EN1523 standards by ballistic test laboratory D J Goode of Suffolk. The wall system successfully prevented perforation of FB4; FB6 and FB7 classification ammunition alongside achieving LPS1175 E10 security rating.
Following on from the FB7 examination using the 7.62x51mm AP round, further test shots were carried out whereby the wall system successfully prevented perforation by the more onerous Swiss-P 194g AP ammunition.
The Premier ballistic-resistant, modular design is further enhanced by its ability to achieve impressive ‘green credentials’ with its use of certificated, thermally-broken profiles creating U-Values, insulation, air & water tightness results targeted to help support the challenge of global warming. The impressive U-Values help create controlled temperature conditions resisting both excessive heat and cold.
