The SSHSTS 3000 LPS SR3 Full Height High Security Turnstile has been designed to offer zero penetration where perimeter security is of the utmost importance. Responding to market demands, perimeter access specialists Security Solutions, have developed a cost-effective high security full height turnstile unit which meets LPS (security rating specification for high security entrance barriers).

Security Solutions realised there was a demand for a turnstile unit that could control pedestrian footfall, zone off restricted areas whilst being able to withstand forced entry. Security Solutions SSHSTS Full Height Turnstile can be installed internally or externally and is delivered as a completed unit. Manufactured from galvanised steel the imposing unit acts as an aggressive visual deterrent.

The SSHSTS Full Height Turnstile not only acts as a visual deterrent but also offers zero penetration, withstanding various methods of forced entry and gaining LPS SR3 Security Rating.

Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 1175: Issue 8. is an important security standard. The standard relates to requirements and testing procedures for the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) approval and listing of intruder resistant building components, strong points, security enclosures and free-standing barriers. Pass rates achieved under strict testing carried out by BRE.

SSHSTS 3000 LPS SR3 High Security Turnstile


LPS’ stands for ‘Loss Prevention Standard’ and LPS 1175 is one of many LPS standards by the LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board).

The 1175 standard itself focuses on the physical security of ‘intruder resistant building components’, which includes strong-points, security enclosures, free-standing barriers, and any products that fall within those categories, such as doors, shutters, fencing or even key safes.

This useful diagram from BRE shows the areas of asset protection that the LPS 1175 standard is relevant to and the measures that cover all other areas of asset protection.


The LPS 1175 Issue 7 and 8 standard uses different tool kits and different attack durations to categorise the security rating a product is certified to.

These ratings are split into eight different security ratings (SR levels), each one intended to represent a distinct threat scenario.

As each rating goes up, both tool-kit and attack duration change.

The basis for this is that if an attacker is likely to use more severe tools in an attack, then they’ll also be more committed to the attack, so will spend longer trying to defeat the product before abandoning.
