Zaun gates secure LPCB security ratings

folder_openCivic & Public Sector, Construction, High Security, Utilities

Zaun has achieved security ratings to LPS1175 for many of its pedestrian and vehicular swing gates from the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), as tested by the Buildings Research Establishment (BRE).

The perimeter systems manufacturer’ has secured an SR1 rating for both Duo8 and HiSec 358 gates – and an SR2 rating for gates clad with HiSec Super10 mesh.

The gates have all earned LPCB certificates and entered the Red Book for LPS 1175: Issue 7.

Designers have added an over clip and special shear-drive bolt at the top and bottom of the mounting post of Zaun’s standard Duo8 gate to give it it’s SR1 rating.

It has used a similar principle with its HiSec 358 gate by adding a clamp bar at the side of the gate post with a through-bolt and stainless steel fixings.

The SR2 gate is fitted with Zaun’s Super10 mesh into the HiSec gate. All three are supplied with an SR-rated padlock as standard.

To maintain accreditation and a listing in the LPCB Red Book, manufacturers must regularly demonstrate to independent auditors that they produce products consistent with those tested. This gives the customer the guarantee that they are getting a secure and quality product.

Products approved by LPCB are rigorously tested for resistance to deliberate attack and play an important role in protecting people and property against physical attack, burglary, vandalism and terrorism.

LPS 1175 specifically covers the approval and listing of intruder resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers.

BRE Physical Security Certification Scheme Manager Richard Flint said: “The threat to organisations from commercial crime and terrorism is diverse in both geography and levels of skill involved; it is persistent and requires appropriate measures to deter criminals and terrorists.

“Early detection backed up by effective physical security that provides a suitable delay while the response arrives reduces the likelihood of criminal acts being committed. This is supported by research and initiatives, and in the UK, LPCB works closely with security equipment specifiers, insurers, government, police, and end-users to develop methods by which the quality of product performance and product reliability can be assessed.“
