Tom Jenkins of Bastion Security was in last week to give our information team a briefing on their products and services.
On the manufacturing side, Tom told us that they have a specialist joinery works and a Steel fabrication factory. High spec. anti-ballistic glass is brought in from Holland all to make their superior quality security products.
I was fascinated to hear about the types of installations they get involved in, from a secure reception desk for a Police Station in a troubled area, a Guard Hut for a Military base, to a panic room for a vulnerable diplomat’s home or a high risk embassy.
Bastion Security specialises in providing solutions to mitigate damage which may be caused by spontaneous violence by individuals, organised violence by activists, terrorist attacks involving guns or bombs, and surreptitious attacks including espionage.
A potential client would be asked to identify the threat from which they wished to be protected in order that Bastion could produce a bespoke security solution.
Security enclosures can be built from Bastion’s modular panelling system. Visitors to The Building Centre will be able to see an example of one of these enclosures on their display from January 2012.
Bastion have built security enclosures to house IT equipment, company servers storing valuable data. These store rooms can be equipped with lighting, air conditioning, ventilation and fail secure locking systems.
Bastion products have been evaluated by the UK government and approved for use by the Home Office, MOD and CPNI ( Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure). They also have LPCB Approval LPS 1175 issue 7 SR5 which is the Standard for Protection Against Physical Attack.
