Lochrin Bain renew with Secured by Design

Lochrin Bain

Cumbernauld’s Lochrin Bain is one of the latest companies to renew their membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.

Lochrin Bain has been manufacturing high-quality fencing products for over 160 years and have a proven and established manufacturing facility in Cumbernauld on the outskirts of Glasgow, which continues to provide the most up-to-date fencing solutions available on the market.

Lochrin Bain recently announced the first of several new product launches for 2020, with their latest Combi™ Palisade design successfully achieving Security Rating A1 (SR1) to LPS 1175 Issue: 8, an Industry first for Perimeter Security Manufacturers.

With various specifications of this fence designed over the years ranging from CPNI rated for Critical National Infrastructure through to the company’s first LPS 1175 SR3 design in 2016, this new Patented Palisade system was developed to compete against SR1 rated mesh alternatives such as 868 Twinwire and 358, offering the same attack delay times and at a similar cost, something that has been missing from not only Lochrin Bain’s portfolio but the Industry as a whole.

Palisade has always held different advantages to welded mesh panel systems including its capability to rake easily over uneven grounds, while offering greater tolerances during installation. Traditional designs gained bad press over the years with recent attack tests proving that a generic front fix pales on Palisade allow the fence to be breached in under 12 seconds using basic hand tools. Using this new Combi™ Palisade SR1 Design Architects, Security Consultants and Contractors can now safely specify a product that offers clients a formidable fence line at a competitive price.

The system is SBD recognised and conforms to BS1722 Part 12:2016 carrying full certification to LPS 1175 Security Rating A1 Issue:8 as featured in the BRE Red Book.

To ensure a complete security solution both Pedestrian and Vehicle access gates have been designed to complement the system gaining the required security rating,  while the fence can be integrated with security solutions such as PIDS and security toppings for added security.

Each system is supplied Galvanized as standard with a choice of Polyester Powder Coated colours available and Lochrin Bain’s standard 25 year design life warranty when installed by approved contractors.

SBD National Lead Kenny McHugh said: “I am pleased that Lochrin Bain have renewed membership, they have been valued members with Secured by Design for over 20 years. As specialists in security fencing Lochrin Bain work tirelessly to design and manufacture products to protect key assets across the UK and their SBD accredited products are regularly identified as the appropriate perimeter security solution for protecting our Critical National Infrastructure.  I am looking at working with them over the coming years”.SBD is part of Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (PCPI), a police owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives across the UK. PCPI is a not-for-profit organisation and Board Members include senior police officers from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland who control and direct the work PCPI carries out on behalf of the Police Service.

SBD plays a significant crime prevention role in the planning process to design out crime in a wide range of building sectors. It has achieved some significant success including one million homes built to SBD standards with reductions in crime of up to 87%.

SBD have many partner organisations, ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and the Police Service through to local authorities, housing associations, developers and manufacturers and work closely with standards and certification bodies to ensure that their publicly available standards actually meet the needs of the police and public alike.

Products must be subject to rigorous testing and additionally be fully certificated by an independent, third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) before being allowed to carry the SBD logo – this is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK.
