BLAST AND BULLET RESISTANT DOORS, WINDOWS, WALLING AND COUNTER SCREENS
Our portfolio primarily deals with perimeter security hardware, much of which relates to entrances for personnel and vehicles to high security areas. However, a secondary line of defence is the protection of the building or internal high security areas and this is why we now include doors, windows, wallings and counter screens (illustrated to the right) to protect intrusion by bomb or bullet. This datasheet includes a synopsis of some of the latest standards.
The ideal protection for high security areas against attack by VBIEDs (Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices) is physical security barriers compliant with international standard IWA14 with a stand-off zone between the fence and the asset. This is not always possible and the asset itself will need the windows and doors, and in some cases the walling protected against planned intrusion against criminal or extremist attack.
This is such a large product portfolio that the size of doors and windows will usually match either the existing or to the designer’s detail.
The paragraph operation which we keep in our standard format does not really apply to this product but the design relates to the risk. We therefore include in this paragraph, a synopsis of the standards for some of the main products.
FAST RISING SCREEN:
This product provides desirable open counter trading (i.e. no counter surface glazing) and bullet resistant protection in a fraction of a second when required. (In the UK open counter trading is a very desirable benefit from the organisation’s perspective since it improves communication between customers and staff necessary for the improved selling of products by banks, and for staff interaction with speakers whose first language is not English. Open counter trading also removes the ‘road rage’ effect often seen when people are separated, letting themselves become more abusive when annoyed than would otherwise be the case when face-to-face)
BLAST AND BALLISTICS OVERVIEW:
In viewing the below you need to be aware that EN1522 is the European wide standard for bullet resistance of doors, windows, shutters. EN1522 tests the weakest points of the product including shots onto joints between the door leaf and frame, as well as shots onto the main product sections, this standard includes shots at angles to comprehensively test the bullet resistance of the product. Before EN1522 was released doors were tested to less rigorous national standards, and hence the bullet resistance of EN1522 Doors is superior.
BLAST RESISTANT DOORS:
This product is tested against 500kg of explosive at 28m (a large explosion). This product is also bullet resistant to EN1522 FB4 level (44 magnum resistant) although the blast resistance is the real USP. This product provides excellent blast protection for staff in organisations at risk from bomb and firearm attack.
BULLET RESISTANT DOORS:
This product is bullet resistant tested to EN1522 FB4 level (44 magnum resistant), and actually we have produced EN1522 FB6 level (7.62 calibre resistant) doors. This product provides excellent protection for staff in organisations at risk from firearm attack. We can produce this product in single or double doorsets (doubles depending on the bullet resistance required)
BULLET RESISTANT WALLING:
This product is modular and can transported through a standard doorway before being constructed into a complete bullet resistant wall, and therefore can be used to construct bullet resistant walls or enclosures within existing buildings, even behind existing non-bullet resistant walls if required. This is a great advantage as it allows the target hardening of an area of a building as required if part of a building is to be re-purposed. Of course Safetell Bullet Resistant Doors integrate with our CityWall product. This product can also be used to construct external or internal ATM bunkers or rooms, including roof. We cut holes for the ATMs on production provided that we are supplied with the precise details of the ATM before manufacture This product is bullet resistant to EN1522 FB4 level (44 magnum resistant), and actually we have produced EN1522 FB6 level (7.62 calibre resistant) walls.
COUNTER SCREENS AND RELATED ITEMS:
We can supply a modular counter and security window system, with numerous features designed to assist members of the public in their transactions. In the UK these features are design to meet both UK and European regulations. This product is supplied as manual attack resistant or manual attack resistant with bullet resistant glass. We can also supply product to be retro fitted to existing counter work to protect staff from manual attack (punches, kicks, thrown chairs, attacks with hammers, etc), and to provide some open counter trading when desired. This product is often selected by organisations who have suffered an attack against staff and need a retro-fit solution for staff protection. This product is essentially a security sash window in which the lower pane moves. The product tends to be used with the lower screen near to the fully lowered position or partially raised, often at interview desks where there is a risk of aggression. The screen can be raised or lowered at the press of a button by the staff member to suit their perception of the risk. This product allows open counter trading at times of low risk, and for service positions to be temporarily fully closed while staff members are away from the service position. This system also incorporates a reactive closure feature to rapidly close the screen if the situation requires.
OUT OF HOURS HATCHES:
This product is typically used in petrol forecourts / gas stations / all night pharmacies, the product allows the business to carry on trading at times of higher risk (overnight for example) thereby working fixed assets harder and increasing revenue, without allowing potential assailants into store premises. Our Out of Hours Hatches are low cost, and incorporate both an upper coin/note tray and a lower bulk item drawer for the transaction of many goods or chip & pin machine for card payments.
