ASSA ABLOY Security Doors meets the latest LPS 1175 standards
ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions, has successfully re-tested its products to Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) 1175: Issue 7, greatly increasing the scope of certification for its security door range.
The doors have been independently tested by the Building Research Establishment to the latest issue of the security standard, with the doors fitted with the Pickersgill-Kaye range of single and multi-point locking systems.
ASSA ABLOY now has one of the most comprehensive, fully certified security doors product ranges available in the UK. This now encompasses security ratings to SR2, SR3 and SR4 of the LPS 1175 standard, as well as the option of timber doors tested to the same level. LPS 1175 is the most widely recognised security door standard, and the one most commonly specified by architects in the UK.
Nigel Cronin, Sales Manager at ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, explains: "The purpose of this re-testing was for four key reasons. Firstly, our products have now been tested with Pickersgill-Kaye locking systems, ensuring both SR3 and SR4 doors are standardised with this sought after, high security locking system. Secondly, the doors now offer increased flexibility as they have been tested with single point locks, which help reduce cost, simplify the doorset and lower on-going maintenance. Thirdly, the doors have been tested as double doors, with the option of double panic escape, fully in accordance with the requirements of EN 1125 standards for panic escape hardware.
"Finally, the doors that have been accredited to security rating 4 have now been tested for both inward and outward opening configurations, which is increasingly requested as a requirement by our customers."
For architects, specifiers and contractors working on major projects, selecting solutions that have met LPS 1175: Issue 7 standards provides assured security, safety and peace of mind.
