Requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listing of safe storage units
Safes and strongrooms are classified according to their resistance to determined attempts to gain unauthorised access to the contents.
Part 1 - Secure storage units. Requirements, classification and methods of test for resistance to burglary. Suitable for safes, ATM safes, strongroom doors and strongrooms.
Very similar to LPS 1183 except there are prescriptive requirements for the locking system which must meet EN1300 (Secure storage units. Classification for high security locks according to their resistance to unauthorised entry).
Part 2 - Secure storage units. Requirements, classification and methods of tests for resistance to burglary. Suitable for deposit systems
The security cabinets covered by this specification are intended for the storage of Section 1 Firearms, Section 1 Ammunition, Shotguns and any other lethal barrelled weapons as prescribed by the Firearms Act 1968 or the Firearms (Dangerous Air Weapons) Rules 1969. Under the Firearms Rules 1998, a prescribed safekeeping condition is attached to all firearm and shotgun certificates. It is an offence not to comply with these conditions. The specification excludes storage of weapons for military or commercial purposes.
Requirements for burglary resistance of construction products including doorsets, windows, curtain walling, security grilles, garage doors, roller shutters, fences and barriers.
This is an enhanced test, specifying a similar range of attack tools and times to those used within the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) LPS1175 standard, including attacks with power tools. Products are rated via the term Burglary Resistance (BR) and range from BR1 (Lower security rating similar to LPS1175 SR1) to BR6 (Higher security rating similar to LPS1175 SR6). An example of this would be STS 202 BR2 etc... However, STS202 does not extend to cover the higher levels of risk addressed within LPS1175 Security Rating 7 or above (Issue 7) & F15 and above (Issue 8) . It is published by Warringtonfire Testing and Certification Limited.
Stealth burglary resistance requirements for construction products including doorsets, windows, curtain walling, security grilles, garage doors, roller shutters, fences and barriers
This is a new Security Technical Schedule (STS) for stealth burglary based on the existing test methodology of STS202, where intruders are more likely to use stealth and avoid generating noise. For situations where less consideration is given to noise, certification to STS202 should be considered.
Stealth burglary resistance requirements for construction products for security cabinets, security enclosures and safe deposit boxes.
This is a stealth version of STS 205 and is applicable to storage boxes. Where a cabinet is located in a fully public area, then STS205 maybe more applicable.
Specification for testing and classifying the burglary resistance of office furniture. Suitable for lightweight containers
Specification for testing and classifying physical protection devices for personal computers and similar equipment
Requirements for companies providing secure asset registration services
Requirements for the LPCB approval and listing of asset marking systems
Requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listing of building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers offering resistance to intruders attempting to use stealth to gain entry.
LPS 2081 specifies two grades of security according to the tools and time taken by an intruder in situations where they want to avoid making excessive noise, replicating a stealth attack common in a residential environment. When LPS 2081 is used as a route to gain SBD approval, SRB is the minimum requirement for a doorset.
Laboratory-identifiable forensic codes. Classification of performance when exposed to artificial weathering.
Tests forensic coding for performance when exposed to artificial weathering. Allows the classification of products where the identification or verification of the mark requires laboratory analysis. It only covers the code not the carrying system.
Approval and Red Book listing of ballistic resistant windows, doors, shutters and blinds plus associated glazing – This can also include facades, glazing infills and window frames. Products certified to LPS1175 and LPS2081 can also be certified with ballistic resistance.
Requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB certification and listing of intruder resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers. This standard includes windows for higher risk premises.
This standard is concerned with physical security, including products manufactured for perimeter, façade, internal spaces and entrapment protection. The higher the security rating, the more formidable the security product.
One of the more substantial revisions to the standard to date, LPS 1175: Issue 8 has been devised to improve the testing guidelines for security products, enabling a far more realistic scope for security ratings. There are a possibility of 48 Security Ratings aimed at creating strategic delay via physical security.
LPCB describe it as:
“Developed following extensive consultation with stakeholders, this revision sees the previous single digit performance classifications (i.e. security ratings 1 to 8) extended to one formed of two elements that illustrate performance in terms of:
Threat level (first element) – Letter (A to H) corresponding with the tool kit used to evaluate the product’s intruder resistance and number of attackers involved.
Delay (second element) – Numeric value (1, 3, 5, 10, 15 or 20) corresponding with the minimum delay (in minutes) provided by the product when placed in a locked condition.”
This revision provides property developers, architects and other security professionals the opportunity to layer their security beyond the capability of previous revisions.
