Powershield doors tested to LPCB standard

Powershield has successfully tested single and double doorsets to LPS 1175 Security Ratings 3 and 4, with Loss Prevention Council Board.

The security doors approved by LPCB have been subjected to rigorous testing to assess their resistance to deliberate attack; this ensures that our products continue to meet exceptionally high standards and fulfil the needs of specifiers and end users alike.

With sizes available up to 2.4m wide by 2.4m high, Powershield can offer sufficient sizes to meet all marketplace requirements.  The doors are approved with a wide range of locking options to suit a number of different situations and uses. 

Commenting on behalf of LPCB, Richard Flint confirmed that achieving such approval is not easy; “Achieving approval to LPS 1175 not only requires good design but also sound engineering and effective quality control. Over 95% of products submitted for evaluation fail to achieve the ratings sought. This reflects the risk of specifying unapproved security products and the importance of selecting products approved by LPCB. In achieving this approval, Powershield have demonstrated their doorsets can be trusted to deliver high levels of resistance to forced entry”. 

LPCB is the leading international certification body in the area of security protection.  It’s approval is recognised by governments and regulatory authorities across the world, especially the UK, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Middle East.

Security products and services approved by LPCB and listed within Part 6 of the Red Book play an extremely important role in protecting people and property against crime, in particular burglary and vandalism.

The Red Book is a world-renowned listing of independently certified products or company services, and is the essential reference for those responsible for the design, specification and purchase of fire and security products.
