LPCB Certified Doors
Bradbury Security's M2M1 steel door range is certified by the LPCB to LPS1175 Security Rating 1 and the M2M3 Range is certified to LPS1175 Security Rating 3.
LPCB testing of steel doors to the industry standard of LPS1175 involves deliberate forced entry with arange of attack tools over a set period. The range of tools and time period is determined by the security level required. Regular auditing also ensures that approved products continue to comply with the relevant standard.
It is important to be aware that door and hardware combinations must be tested together for a door to be certified and testing undertaken independently bu the LPCB. BEWARE OF FAKES - some companies mislead customers by referring to uncertified doors by a Level or Security Rating. If a door has not been tested by the LPCB it is not certified and thereforedoes not come with the same assurances.
