Loss Prevention Standard Gained By Safety Glass

BRE Global : 14 February, 2011  (New Product)
LPS 1175 has been awarded to Essex Safety Glass for its range of secure laminated glazing for use in facade glazing applications
Essex Safety Glass is the first company to achieve approval for their ESG Secure Laminated Security Glazing to the LPCB Loss Prevention Standard LPS 1270: Issue 1.

 

LPS 1270 was developed to enhance the current level of security offered by glass tested to European Standard BS EN 356:2000 (Glass in building, Security glazing, Testing and classification of resistance against manual attack)enabling glazing systems to offer the independently proven higher levels of security compatible with LPS 1175, LPCB’s leading standard used for medium and high level physical security products and systems.

 

Richard Flint, LPCB’s Physical Security Certification Scheme Manager said” By choosing ESG products certificated to LPS 1270 specifiers and manufacturers will have the confidence that glazing specified to LPS1270 as part of the façade security is in line with products specified to LPS 1175 for doors, shutters, grilles and other related façade systems”.

 

The standard confirms the glazing’s resistance to the creation of three different sizes of holes. These represent different risks ranging from small slots to access panic hardware (i.e. on a glazed doorset that provides a means of escape to public buildings) to large holes through which items such as jewellery and designer clothing may be stolen when on display in a retail environment. The tools and time that the glazing must withstand match those that products classified in accordance with LPS1175: Issue 7 must resist. LPCB certification also requires ongoing quality surveillance audits.

 

Scott Sinden, MD of Essex Safety Glass commented, “ESG Secure™ has been developed to combat the increased risk of serious crime and terrorist threats, and meets the requirements of the new Loss Prevention Standard LPS 1270. We continue to respond to customer needs to meet evolving legislation and building regulations and are delighted that we now have approval from LPCB - one of the world’s leading certifiers in fire and security.”
