R&D

No Safety without Research and Development

All the products we offer have been well researched down to the most minute detail by our in-house R&D department. Rather than making compromises, we put all the necessary effort into development, in order to reconcile safety functions, user-friendliness, durability, low maintenance requirements, cost optimisation, and legal compliance.

Our claim to innovation leadership is also reflected in the numerous patents we hold. For example, more than 30 different features of our award-winning bollard system CityProtector have received patented status.

Knowledge Transfer – Up-to-Date Research Expertise for your Perimeter Protection

For quite some time now, the Perimeter Protection Group and the University of Paderborn have been maintaining a research cooperation, which has helped us add various significant improvements to the products in our portfolio. In return we give students and young researchers the opportunity to carry out the research for their theses and dissertations while working in our company as interns. In this way, we introduce scientific and engineering theory and expertise into the most advanced security solutions and at the same time promote mutual transfer of knowledge within academia in our home region of East Westphalia.

High Quality, High-Security

Certified Quality Standards

In addition to our program of internal audits, we also undergo inspections by independent experts, such as the annual site inspection by the German TÜV-institute. These regular independent audits contribute to confirming our high quality and procedural efficiency. Our company is certified to DIN EN ISO 9001 standards, which is predicated on a modern quality management system.

In order to optimise manufacturing tolerances as well as the cost and functional reliability of all components, we carry out structural analyses using state-of-the-art construction- and computer simulations. Subsequently, the products undergo real long-term stress tests in our in-house testing facility. Each of our products is subject to a thorough final operational inspection.

CE-Certification

CE-certification proves that products sold in the European Economic Area (EEA) meet high safety, health, and environmental protection requirements. This standard also aims at supporting fair competition, as all companies are subject to equal regulation. As a result, our customers can be sure that products made by PPG do not only protect their perimeters, but also work safety and nature throughout the European Economic Area (EEA).

Type Testing

All of our products are ‘Made in Germany’ and manufactured under strict quality control protocols. Thus, we guarantee the best possible security levels – a promise that with PPG, you will always be able to count on!

We prove the continuous quality and, above all, the superior safety of our products by means of TÜV type testing and other certifications. Our electrically operated quick folding gates, for example, always comply with the current European safety standards and are TÜV type tested. This standard specifies the safety and performance requirements for gates and barriers intended for installation on sites pedestrians may have access to, and also ensures safety for goods and vehicles in industrial, commercial or residential areas.

Gates without type testing may not meet the current safety standard which could lead to accidents with serious consequences. The TÜV type test is not mandatory, however, we subject our products to these standards out of social responsibility and appreciation for public safety.

In addition to type testing for electric gate systems, PPG is one of the few manufacturers who can guarantee safe opening and closing of external gates on slopes (roller or cantilever sliding gates). For this purpose, we use our tried and tested safety gears. In addition, we carry out design analyses using precise computer simulations of realistic, extreme impact forces to optimise the costs and functional safety of all components.

Realistic Crash Testing for Real Security

There are many manufacturers of non-certified high-security products. Proof of compliance with regulations is often provided by submitting what is called a ‘self-certification” – based solely on static calculations. Only a crash test carried out by an independently audited authority will accurately represent real life conditions and ensure flawless security.

Many manufacturers of security technology make outlandish quality claims. But only proven products can make a claim to meeting the strictest quality standards in practice.

Take a look at our crash test videos and see for yourself, what a literally marked impression our products can leave – not least in the vehicles trying to overcome them…
