18th June 2018

A landmark mixed-use development in Nigeria has been secured by the latest British perimeter technology.

PAS68 gates, Cova secures landmark Nigeria tower behind PAS68 gates with Super10 mesh, ZaunCrash-tested bi-folding speed gates with inlaid security mesh panels have been installed at Nestoil Tower on Victoria island, Lagos, along with crash-tested bollards and blockers.

Cova Security Gates from Crawley – creators of the world’s first crash-tested speed gate – won the contract to supply and install from leading Nigerian construction company Julius Berger.

The prestigious Nestoil Tower is a 15-storey mixed-use development consisting of 7,500 sq m of office space, 3,500 sq m of residential space, a multi-storey parking facility as well as a recreational facility – and houses Julius Berger’s new corporate head office.

The building form was created using gentle curved surfaces of high performance glass with horizontal tubular details which accentuate the sweeping effect of the curved façade.  The arced curtain walls are further defined by a surround of solid white metal panels to complete the contemporary composition of this building.

Cova were tasked to provide secure vehicle and pedestrian access and to protect access from the gatehouse for staff entrances and exits at different areas and around the main building.

PAS68 gates, Cova secures landmark Nigeria tower behind PAS68 gates with Super10 mesh, ZaunCova supplied five crash-tested trackless bi-folding speed gates, one standard bi-folding gate, five rising arm barriers, four crash-rated bollards, a crash-tested shallow depth road blocker, a full-height double turnstile and a push button access control system that controlled the entire turnkey project.

The gates were clad with steel fencing manufacturer Zaun’s Super10 steel mesh to add to the security of the gates.

Cova’s design team manufactured each product bespoke to the client’s specific requirements for the project, because of the weight and material of the mesh, to ensure PAS68 test standards were fully met and foundation requirements, speed of opening and closing and power control were all as specified.

All gates and turnstiles were finished in ‘Signal White’ to blend in with the design of the tower and the fence line.

Cova filled three 40ft containers for shipping to Nigeria with all products tested prior to leaving the factory as part of its ISO9001 process and by Julius Berger-appointed auditors.

Installation was arduous and fraught with difficulties, but once completed, a Cova engineer provided full training to the Nestoil Tower security team on how to operate the gates, blockers, barriers and turnstile on a daily basis so that they could correctly implement protection in the event of a terrorist vehicle attack.
