Security Shutters for Water Industry Infrastructure – what to consider

  • Check that the shutters you’re buying can interface with other, third-party security systems, which can cater to location-specific risks.
  • Older shutter systems can be left in unsecured positions if they’re mishandled. Make sure you’re investing in a modern system, which can’t be compromised by user error.
  • Having shutters that can be operated from either inside or outside the building mean that they can still be used as the first point of entry for staff. Accessibility can by further improved with a remote access system.
  • As for essential specifications, look for shutters that are independently tested to LPS 1175, Issue 7 security standards, and be sure to check their security ratings. Security shutters for water infrastructure sites will need the best protection available, so SR4 or 5 rated shutters are a must.
