LPCB

Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB). LPS 1175 Issue 7 – Loss Prevention Standards

Physical security products help to protect a building or critical access point from the unwanted attentions of opportunist or experienced criminals and also terrorists. This type of protection provides the time needed for security personnel to respond to attempts to break-in.

For a number of years LPCB has been working with Government, police and utility companies to develop a system of classifying the resistance of elements to forced entry. The result of this work is LPS 1175 Issue 7 (Specification for testing and classifying the burglary resistance of building components, strongpoints and security enclosures). LPS 1175 Issue 7 is based on manual attack testing and defines eight levels of resistance. These are measured in terms of attack tools and time available to the attacker, and enables specifiers to select products according to the risks that they and their property face.

Sunray’s ExcluDoor® range of steel security doors are certified to LPS 1175 Issue 7 Levels 3, 4, 5 and 6 and the ExecDoor® range is certified to LPS 1175 Issue 7 Levels 1 and 2.

This standard is the benchmark for the specification for new buildings and for target hardening existing sites.
It is used to evaluate the performance of:

  • Access covers and hatches
  • Doors
  • Grilles and shutters
  • Skylights
  • Temporary buildings
  • Windows and curtain walling
  • Fencing and gates
  • Walls and roofing
  • Security enclosures
  • Equipment cabinets

Approval of products to LPS 1175 Issue 7 opens up the following markets:1 Scriber

  • UK Government
  • Banks and commerce
  • Schools
  • Police
  • Utility companies
  • High street retail
  • Transport infrastructure
  • Pharmaceutical industry
  • Wood/plastic wedges

Products approved to LPS 1175 Issue 7 must bear the LPCB mark. This helps the end user and specifiers to identify LPCB approved products. Sunray Engineering’s LPCB certificates and other accreditations can be seen here >>

BRE’s Guide to Physical Security Standards for Buildings can be seen here >>

Security

If you specify LPCB approved security solutions you will reduce the risk to you and your property. LPCB work with insurers, Government, police, designers, manufacturers, contractors and end users to develop methods by which product performance and reliability can be assessed. This relationship with stakeholders enables the LPCB approvals process to help ensure that products meet and continue to meet the needs of specifiers and end users.

Products which LPCB can approve include:

  • Access control systems (including biometrics)
  • Asset marking systems
  • Building and perimeter security products, including doorsets, windows, fencing, roofing, shutters and grilles
  • Computer protection devices
  • Intruder detection systems including components
  • Safes, strong-rooms and ATMs
  • Temporary building and other secure enclosures
  • Vehicle bollards

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 ensure (through regular auditing) that the product continues to comply with the relevant standard and that the product available in the marketplace performs to the same level as the product which was originally tested and approved.
