Show Me How also extends to the LPCB Attack Testing Zone, one of the most exciting features at IFSEC International. This area lets LPCB members put their accredited perimeter defence equipment to the test, demonstrating the performance difference between certified security equipment and products which - while seemingly similar - fail to deliver equivalent levels of protection.
Technicians will conduct exciting live attack tests on a wide range of perimeter and facade security products, as well as safes, security enclosures and padlocks, featuring products from leading suppliers such as Abloy, CLD Fencing, Insafe, Jacksons Fencing, Kingsley Plastics and Sunray Engineering among others. These rigorous tests help you source and identify the solutions best suited to your security strategy by proving their efficacy live on the show floor.
