World’s highest rated sliding security gate designed by Trellidor RSA

Trellidor Trojan 3 EMESC T3000 sliding security gate

The Trellidor Trojan 3 EMESC T3000 sliding security gate is the strongest of its type in the world.

Trellidor has designed, developed and manufactured the world’s highest rated steel sliding security gate. Known as Trellidor Trojan 3 EMESC T3000, the gate has been certified to BRE Standard LPS 1175: Issue 7 SR3. This is the highest certification received by a sliding security gate in the world.

The Durban-based security barrier manufacturer spent 18 months and just under R3m in the research and development of the state-of-the-art Trellidor Trojan 3 EMESC T3000. It is an immensely strong expandable security gate with a unique emergency escape locking system.

Surprisingly, the gate is not the ugly steel monstrosity expected of a heavy-duty security gate weighing 50kg/m². It is remarkably neat, stacks easily to the side when opened, and powder coated for a smooth finish.

The Trellidor Trojan 3 EMESC T3000 has been independently attack tested by BRE Global Ltd’s Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB). The company is based in London and is an internationally respected third party testing body. The gate was certified to BRE Standard LPS 1175: Issue 7 SR3. This is the highest certification received by a sliding security grille in the world.

The testing criteria included practical measures such as the gate must meet crowd loading and building regulation safety standards. It must have an emergency escape locking system that is simple to operate whilst still meeting the test criteria on the attack face. This is particularly important in the panic that is inevitable in a crisis.

Trellidor team launch Trojan 3 EMESC T3000 highest rated security gate in world

Trellidor Projects & Technology Executive Craig Meekers is congratulated by Trellidor Marketing & Sales Director Peter Rawson on the launch of the highest rated sliding security gate in the world, Trellidor Trojan 3 EMESC T3000, a sample of which is behind them.

Furthermore, the gate has to be easy to use by a person in the 75th percentile, meaning someone below average in terms of strength, and materials had to be corrosion resistant and conform to health and safety standards.

To test its strength, the Trellidor Trojan 3 EMESC T3000 was flown to the UK and attacked under test conditions by experts in this process, using a variety of tools to physically assault the gate.

“It surpassed the testing requirements, which was a great reward for thousands of hours of hard work by our team in the development and design phase,” said Peter Rawson, Trellidor Marketing and Sales Director.

The design was certified to a height of 3630mm with unlimited width using multi sash and dual channel technology, which makes it unique as no comparable product can offer this.

“Since receiving the requisite certification, we have shipped 12 of these world-class gates oversees to destinations that we cannot disclose due to their sensitive nature. Our production plant is currently working its way through the order book for additional units and we are exploring new markets in Europe, Africa, the East and South America.”

With terrorism, bomb threats and violent crowds part of the modern day public space landscape, physical security barriers are sharply in focus for governments, transport hubs, sports stadia and the retail sector worldwide and this is the type of location where the initial international orders for Trellidor Trojan 3 EMESC T3000 originated.

“Demand in the international market was the primary motivation for the introduction of the Trellidor Trojan 3 EMESC T3000 to our Trellidor Retractable Security range. But we are seeing increasing interest locally due to the high rate of violent robbery in the commercial arena as well as public spaces in South Africa,” said Rawson.

  Unconventional entry doors are sometimes left unsecured because of their awkward shape and are then the weak link in a building’s security layers.  Trellidor custom-manufactures security gates to specification, and designs protective barriers for any shape including circular, pivot and more traditional doors.

Trellidor Rollerstyle aluminium roller shutters are generally installed to protect windows and external doors.  But they can also be fitted internally to optimise space use as well as provide security, as a Durban yacht club anticipated when their shutter was recently installed.

The personal safety of the occupants of a building should never be compromised because of a reluctance to obscure the structure’s architectural beauty with a muddle of busy burglar proofing, says Peter Rawson of Trellidor.  He has some suggestions on how to improve security without a negative aesthetic impact.

Modern homes with their minimal exteriors hold strong appeal because of their strong lines and indoor/outdoor flow. Flat roofs, large expanses of glass, and paving from patio to pool bring in an abundance of summer sunshine, but also unbearable heat.  Trellidor Rollerstyle aluminium shutters fitted to doors and windows are an elegant solution, providing security and shade when required, and rolling up out of the way when not needed.
