Security solutions manufacturer Jacksons Fencing has expanded its range of certified products with Securi-Mesh A1.

The new product is a 358 mesh, commonly referred to as prison mesh, designed for applications that specifically demand robust and reliable security. Its small apertures and welds at each intersection make it climb resistant, prevent objects being passed through and provide effective defence against conventional hand cutting tools.

The addition of security rated Securi-Mesh to Jacksons’ range is a response to the increasing diversity of modern-day threats, and will give specifiers more options to adapt security architecture to the situation. The product’s launch also represents a number of milestones. It is the 16th Jacksons Fencing product to be certified by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB).
Securi-Mesh launches in tandem with LPCB’s new LPS 1175: Issue 8 classification system. This matrix style classification system, indicated by the tool category and minimum delay (minutes), offers greater flexibility and clarity around security specification. The updated classification also supports a proportionate, layered approach to security, facilitating far more economical specification of forced entry protection.

Under Issue 8, Securi-Mesh’s SR1 rating is now classified as ‘A1’. This means it will reliably endure an attack time of one minute with tools such as engineer hooks, glass cutters, pliers and punches. Ideal for light to medium security applications, the barrier provides clear visibility making it easier for occupants or CCTV to spot potential attackers.
Peter Jackson, managing director, Jacksons Fencing, commented: “We’re constantly adapting and evolving as the security environment develops, so we’re delighted our new Securi-Mesh is one of the first products to be classified by Issue 8. The new system will deliver greater understanding to those specifying security solutions, a much needed addition to LPCB’s stringent certification process. It’s important that all security firms work with the new compliance systems, as this will boost the industry’s response to complex and varied threats.”

Jacksons Fencing is a family business founded in 1947 in Kent. Today, it operates from three UK locations; Ashford, Bath and Chester and employs over 250 people in the design, manufacture and installation of timber and steel fencing, gates, environmental noise barriers, bollards, automation and access control systems.
