ASSA ABLOY’s security doorsets to be tested in LPCB Attack Zone

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors’ steel and timber doorsets will undergo various attacks to test the effectiveness of the protection they promise.

The tests in the Attack Zone will be carried out by Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) to demonstrate the difference between certified and non-approved products, and in turn highlight how quickly uncertified products can be compromised.

Conforming to standard security rating SR3 of the LPS 1175 – the most widely recognised commercial security door standard – ASSA ABLOY’s doors already underwent successful testing with BRE earlier this year.

“While one doorset may look very similar to another, their resistance to attack may differ quite drastically.” Kevin Campbell, sales director, ASSA ABLOY Security Doors

The tests that took place at ASSA ABLOY’s factory Northern Ireland showcased how quickly uncertified doors can fail and how robust those that meet LPS 1175 standards can be.Following its official launch last year, our Attack Zone is returning in 2018 to highlight the difference between products that meet LPS 1175 and those that do not.

By demonstrating the thorough testing that security doors have to undergo to meet the LPCB’s standards, visitors to stand H140 can be assured that the solutions from ASSA ABLOY Security Doors can meet their security needs. Richard Flint, Technical and Business Development Manager at BRE

Kevin Campbell, sales director at ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, said: “While one doorset may look very similar to another, their resistance to attack may differ quite drastically. Providing assured safety, security and peace of mind, we look forward to testing our secure steel and timber doorsets at IFSEC 2018, Europe’s largest security exhibition.”

ASSA ABLOY’s doorsets will be tested in the LPCB Attack Zone on stand H140. Steel doorsets will be tested between 3:30-4:10pm on 19 June, while the timber doorsets will be tested between 1:00-1:40pm on 20 June.
