Meesons becomes ASIS UK sponsor

Meesons, based in Skipton, North Yorkshire, has announced that it is now an official sponsor of the UK Chapter of ASIS International, the world’s largest membership organisation for security management professionals.

As part of the sponsorship, Meesons, supplier of market leading Security Portals and Speed Gates, will have a presence at all ASIS quarterly seminars and events through 2019.

Alongside this, Meesons will be the event sponsor for the Winter Seminar, which is taking place at the Francis Crick Institute, the landmark biomedical research facility situated next to St Pancras Station on 13th November.

Sponsorship of ASIS International will help Meesons increase awareness of its Security Portals and Speed Gates with a wider audience of specifiers looking for a physical entry barrier that prevents people tailgating their way into a building.

The Winter Seminar at the Francis Crick Institute begins at 1pm and will be based around bringing together a panel of industry experts to explore the theme ‘Security – a Career of Choice’. The seminar will then be followed by the ASIS UK and ASC remembrance evening to recognise 100 years since the end of World War I in support of PTSD Resolution.

ASIS International has over 35,000 members worldwide and is dedicated to increasing the effectiveness and productivity of security professionals by developing educational programs and materials that address broad security interests.
The ASIS Winter Seminar is an excellent opportunity for security specifiers to gain a better understanding of how Meesons Security Portals and Speed Gates offer an aesthetically pleasing solution, but with proven levels of attack resistance and tailgating detection.

Meesons recently became the first and still the only company in the UK to achieve approval to Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 1175: Issue 7 Security Ratings 1 to 3 for its C190-S1 to S3 and C3 S1-S3 Security Portals. In quick succession, Meesons announced another first when its C3 S1-S3, C190 S1-S3, E1G and FPJ140 2SX Security Portals gained accreditation to Secured by Design (SBD).

Gaining LPS 1175 provides independent test evidence that the C3-S1 to S3 and C190-S1 to S3 Security Portals meet the highest security standards and are able to withstand physical attack by intruders, whilst providing building designers with an entrance control solution that has architectural appeal and is compliant with the Equality Act.

“Our wide range of Security Portals and Speed Gates, including the LPS1175 and Secured by Design range, now give security specifiers more options and solutions than ever before,” said Iain Entwistle, Product Marketing Manager at Meesons A.I. Ltd. “The ASIS seminar on 13th November is a great opportunity to find out more about how our wide range of options are able to create a physical entry barrier that protects building users and physical assets from people gaining unauthorised access into the facility.”

Delegates and visitors will have the opportunity to view the Meesons’ Security Portals and Speed Gates on the 13th November which are installed in the main entrance to the Francis Crick Institute. With varied levels of building security required, Meesons proposed a combination of anti-tailgating solutions; Security Portals and Speed Gates, which created a secure entry barrier, preventing unauthorised access yet providing an open and welcoming feel.
