Recent developments with our major suppliers include testing and approval by the Loss Prevention & Certification Board (LPCB). The LPCB (which is part of BRE Global) is one of the most widely recognised organisations for the UK security industry, and works with insurers, government, police, designers, manufacturers, contractors, installers and end users to develop methods by which product performance and reliability can be scientifically assessed. All our insurance rated products are officially approved to LPS 1175 Security Rating Classifications 1 & 2.
All the products approved by LPCB have been subjected to rigorous testing to assess their resistance to deliberate attack. LPCB’s approvals process also helps to ensure, through regular auditing, that the security installation continues to comply with the relevant industry standards and that the product available in the marketplace performs to the same level as the product which was originally tested and approved.
