Securiclad has achieved Loss Prevention Standard (LPS) 1175 ratings from SR2 to SR4.
The LPS 1175 security ratings are set by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), which works closely with the police, Government, insurers, risk consultants and architects to develop its standards.
The LPCB’s standards and approvals for security products are recognised across the globe and it undertakes rigorous technical evaluation work and quality audit processes to ensure the security products it approves deliver proven levels of protection.
During testing, a team of experienced testers use a range of tools, as listed in the categories below, to attack the sample product. As the rating increases, the range of tools tested becomes broader and the time given to the team increases. The testing is extensive and exhaustive.
To reach each rating level, the panel must not be breached up to the maximum test duration set (the entire duration of the test, including time to think, change appliance batteries etc) and the maximum test time set (the amount of time the panel is actually in physical contact with a tool during an attack).
