Ultima Clear Bar

2012-07-10-14.40.54Clearly the best security…

A recent manufacturing project has been the making of Ultima Clear Bar frames for one of our accredited installer companies, Lustalux Ltd of Preston.

The project involved the construction of nine frames, all  finished in white powder coating. Ultima Clear Bar is a bespoke sytem designed to give maximum protection against intruder entry, using a physical barrier. The more traditional method used is with steel bars or security gates but our system uses a unique way of fixing clear Polycarbonate ‘bars’ into an Aluminium frame, to offer protection yet look invisible at first glance.

The system can be used to prevent items or persons from falling through galzed apertures, acting as a Juliet balcony balustrade. The system is fully bespoke and can be used in conjuction with Ultima No Bar, which is designed as a glass to frame retention system, when Anti Shatter Film is installed.

Show cased at London’s Olympia Counter Terror Exhibition the system has proved to be very popular. It’s unique selling point is that it offers a permanent physical security barrier but looks unobtrusive and less obvious than other systems. This is a great positive in situations where aesthetics play a part, such as in high value domestic properties, high street shops or areas where a low key security presence is required.

These particular frames are due to be installed into a local PCT centre’s maternity unit. The threat of entry and theft through open windows is deemed to be a high one but a calming atmosphere is required and ‘camouflaged’ security is required.

Ultima Signal Defence Film

Hush, hush….

Bonwyke have long been a company who have looked at innovative products and have now introduced an exclusive new product range specifically for combating information leakage through glass systems.

Your information is valuable and it’s not unrealistic to think that someone is trying to get their hands on it. To prevent this, your organisation may employ security measures that range from commonplace to the exotic.

The proliferation of decentralised computing environments and the use of wireless LANs, work stations, laptops, mobile phones, Bluetooth, WiFI technology and PDAs has allowed data to be readily accessible virtually anywhere. Even the most sophisticated InfoSec methods of securing your electronic assets within the network are susceptible to surveillance once data is displayed. It’s the Achilles heel of any IT security strategy.

Why use the technology

Radio frequency (RF) and infrared (IR) signals generated from electronic and voice devices within a building “leak” through the glass windows to the outside world, introducing a significant security threat.

This RF/IR signal leakage allows unauthorised parties to monitor, eavesdrop, record and steal confidential and valuable electronic information and voice conversations from an organisation even though encryption and other cyber security protections have been deployed.

Your Information Technology / Our Film Technology.

RF and IR signals leakage can be significantly reduced by deploying Ultima SignalDefence SD2500 (or SD2510 blast combination) Security Film on windows and glazed areas of the building, offering upwards of 46db attenuation to wireless signals. If wireless signals are not accessible to others, then faults with respect to LAN encryption, authentication, VPN, and firewall rules can still be protected until they are corrected.

Help 4 Heroes

FRANCE-060Cycling the D Day beaches

Last week saw Bonwyke’s MD, Chris George, join with some friends in a bike tour of the D Day beaches along the Normandy coast. Taking Brittany Ferries’ fast cat service accross the channel we arrived in Cherbourg around lunchtime on day one. The afternoon was taken up with a 28 mile ride to St Vaast Le Hougue, a small fishing port just north of Utah beach.

We had all wanted to do something like this before and were inspired by others doing their bit for Help for Heroes. Eventually we ran out of excuses not to do it so set off blissfully unaware and un-prepared as ever. The second day was a liesurely 35 miles to Carentan via Utah beach and the American museum. The third day was more involved with another 35 miles but via the beaches of Omagh and Gold, arriving at Arromanche in the early evening.

We had half the fourth day to make the ferry port of Ouisterham ready to catch the afternoon ferry back to Portsmouth. Thankfully the weather stayed dry, unlike the stormy weather that the soldiers faced on 6th June 1944. Seeing the scale and enormity of the whole operation at first hand and walking through the American Cemetery, commemorating the bravest of the brave, was the most humbling of experiences. These were truely amazing young men who fought for our freedom.
