Cubis Systems, the manufacturer of bespoke access cover has announced that they have introduced the new Upstand steel access cover to their Citadel range. This new product offering has been developed in order for the company to meet the requirements of the Loss Prevention Certification Board, or LPCB security Level 4.
The product will offer support for utility providers that are looking to meet the regulatory standards in order to help to protect national infrastructure. The LPCB has certified that the solutions that have been manufactured by the bespoke access cover company as meeting the LPS 1175: Issue 7 for Level 4 security. This certification means that the covers that are offered by Cubis Systems have been extensively tested and proven in order to withstand an attack from a wide range of tools.
The new Upstand steel access covers have been created from a minimum of 4mm thick structural steel plate which have then been hot dip galvanised in order to meet the requirements for the BS EN ISO 1461. This process also offers a superior galvanising finish which can be added to give a 100 to 140-micron zinc coating in order to offer additional longevity in a range of aggressive environments.
The protection of the national infrastructure from contamination and vandalism is a core priority for governments and utility companies. In order to achieve this, every site needs to be assessed before an access cover can be selected. The upstand covers are mainly used over potable water, and therefore found on reservoirs and in rural areas.
The upstand covers feature the capability in order to incorporate a magnetic proxy alarm that will be able to work alongside any system in order to suit the customer’s alarm specifications. ON top of this the bespoke covers are able to easily accommodate the LPCB approved padlocks, including the Abloy PL324 and the Abloy PL350/25.
