Conformance time for 19:20 LHR->ZRH flight

What is the last possible moment I will be allowed to go through First Wing at LHR for a 19:20 LHR->ZRH flight? (assume hand baggage only)

This 35 minutes is the time to pass the barrier to security in F wing. If you have bags to drop or need to check in that needs to be done I believe by T-45 for european shorthaul.

Departures

The Departures area is located on the top floor of Terminal 5. You must meet the following times, or you will not be allowed to travel.
  • Check-in closes 60 minutes before long haul flights depart and 45 minutes before short haul flights depart.
  • Pass through security at least 35 minutes before your flight departs.
  • Be at the boarding gate at least 20 minutes before your flight departs. See the 'Boarding' section, below.
An easy to follow three step process is designed to make your journey through Terminal 5 simple, and our staff will guide you through:

Step 1: If you don’t already have a boarding pass, collect one from one of our hosted self-service touchpoints.

Step 2: If you have a bag to check in, you can tag and drop your bag at one of our hosted self-service bag drops.

Step 3: After completing Step 1 & 2, you can proceed straight to security.

Just be aware: The security barriers are automated and cannot be overridden by staff. So T-35 cutoff is a hard one.

Also, many of my LHR-ZRH flights have flown out from T5B, so you might have to sprint for the flight if you cut it too close.
