The utility sector is vast and covers a wide variety of categories including gas, water, telecoms and power. Due to this, significant infrastructures are required to contain powerful equipment needed for the necessary requirement, ranging from huge national grids right down to the small stand-alone buildings and kiosks, often situated near residential areas.
With the utility industry changing and growing at a rapid pace, it is faces numerous challenges including climate change, population growth and affordability, but why should security be one of them?
Supplying substation doors to the UK’s leading utility providers for more than 20 years, the Bradbury Group understands that security is of paramount importance when protecting your assets. That is why we custom make products to suit individual requirements that are designed, tested and certified to suit the most challenging internal and external applications, to provide you with a long-lasting security solution.
Designed to be installed at remote sites where there is a high risk of vandalism, our doorsets are secure and have been engineered to last. For locations where security is a notable issue, our security door range is also available with LPCB certification to LPS 1175 SR2, SR3 and SR4 respectively, and with optional CERTIFIRE accreditation to FD240 dependent on specification.
Key features of this range include options that have been developed specifically to suit the utilities sector;
Cable Port – Cable ports can be integrated into substation doorsets to allow the passing of cables through the door itself without compromising on security. Cables ports can also be integrated into bladed louvres and louvred panels for added convenience.
Vermin Protection – Small louvred slots on the front and back of the door help to prevent the entry of small animals
Air Flow – Ventilation can be provided through both punched and bladed louvre panels that are LPCB certified to LPS 1175 SR3. Available as solid, half, top & bottom inserted or fully louvred, it can be configured to suit your requirements
Padlockable Lock Cover – For unmanned locations, lock covers are ideal for providing an increased visual and physical deterrent against lock damage and unauthorised access
Hinged Over Panels – Certified by the LPCB for use with our doorsets, hinged over panels can be independently opened and closed from the inside to allow large objects to move through the doorway
Anti-Vandal – An anti-jemmy strip and high security solid steel dog bolts provide protection for the locking system to deter unauthorised access. An optional locking bar is also available to protect external locking
