Security Walling Achieves Physical Security Approvals

BRE Global : 10 December, 2010  (Company News)
The LPS 1175 approval gained by Isoclad for its composite panel construction security walling system
Many of today's modern fast-track buildings are constructed from composite panels which are specified to provide lightweight, thermally efficient buildings for industrial and commercial usage. The focus of specifiers in the past has been fire, thermal, acoustic and environmental issues; however, security is also increasingly being considered due to criminal attacks on the fabric. This is especially the case for buildings such as retail units, distribution hubs and data centres.
Isoclad have become the first company to gain LPCB approval and Red Book listing to LPS 1175: Issue 6 for composite panel security walling and enclosure systems. The Securiclad range of products have achieved ratings 3 and 4.

LPS 1175 (Requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listing of intruder-resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers) specifies eight levels of security which resist times from one minute (opportunist) to twenty minutes (highly professional targeted) attacks. The ratings achieved by Securiclad relate to experienced forced entry using a wide range of manual and battery powered tools lasting five minutes and ten minutes respectively.

Mike McCall, Managing Director of Isoclad said 'Infrastructure Security in today's era is paramount. We developed Securiclad as a quick-fix solution for a vast range of applications, ranging from safeguarding high-value goods and sensitive information to securing water treatment plants, mobile relay stations and data centres. Securiclad is a high security panel system that sustains attack.'

Richard Flint, LPCB's Physical Security Certification Scheme Manager said 'LPCB are delighted to issue this approval. It not only reflects Isoclad's ability to engineer a highly secure solution, but also demonstrates the versatility of LPS 1175 for use in the assessment and specification of a wide range of products and systems. The scope of security solutions approved to LPS 1175 continues to expand, meeting the needs of specifiers facing an increasingly diverse range of security issues. To our knowledge, no other publically available standard offers such versatility.
