Trade Association Sets Up For Perimeter Security Suppliers

Perimeter Security Suppliers Association (PSSA) : 26 February, 2010  (Company News)
The PSSA will be attending Counter Terror Expo 2010 to explain the purpose of the new trade association linking suppliers of perimeter systems, barriers, gates and bollards
The PSSA is a new trade association for companies involved in the supply of equipment and services designed to provide the highest levels of physical protection for sites and their perimeters from terrorist or criminal attack that involves the use of extreme force or explosives.

Members of the association supply a wide range of high performance products including perimeter fences and walls, vehicle barriers and blockers, bollards, high security gates, security blinds together with other specialist equipment developed for this demanding sector of the security market. A range of expert consultancy services is also available from association members.

The association will be exhibiting at Counter Terror 2010, held at Olympia from 14-15th April, stand number P10 in the gallery. Their participation at the show will be used to offer the opportunity for new members to sign up and be involved at this exiting stage of this development, and to raise awareness of the association within the high security industry.

Membership of the PSSA will allow participation, through the PSSA, in the set up of the new independent Sector Certification Scheme; the first such scheme to be set up in Europe. It will be responsible for certifying both tested products, and the companies that produce them - details of the Certification Body will be revealed during the official launch at the show.

"Becoming a PSSA member now will give you a head start on the new programme" says Laurence Goode, PSSA Chairman. "Participation in the testing and certification process will make sure you are included in the PSSA-CPNI published list of certified products and services. This will become the new "GO TO" register for current and future customers to get information on what you supply"

Founder Members of the PSSA are:

ATG Access, APT Security Systems, Avon Barrier Company, Broughton Controls, Corus Bi-Steel, Cova Security Gates, Frontier Pitts, Gunnebo UK, Heald, Hesco Bastion, Hill & Smith, Jackson Fencing and Zaun.

"PSSA formally became a non-profit trade association limited by guarantee on 1st August 2009" says Goode "The founder members are some of the leading names in the sector - I'm confident we will make a valuable contribution to protective security - in particular supporting the objectives of the Government's counter-terrorist strategy CONTEST and the work of the Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure (CPNI)."

The Association will play an active role in the forming of new standards initiatives including the new proposals for CEN product testing standards and the creation of professional standards for product installation.

"It is an exciting time to be part of the security industry - and no better time to be part of the sector's newest and most forward thinking trade association" says Goode.
