dormakaba achieves LPCB accreditation for CEN-rated padlocks

Leading manufacturer of access and security solutions, dormakaba, has achieved a new quality standard with the approval of LPCB (Loss Prevention Council Board) for its range of CEN-rated padlocks.

Part of the Building Research Establishment (BRE), the LPCB works with the government and industry professionals to set minimum standards to ensure that fire and security products perform effectively.

LPS 1654: Issue 1 is the latest physical security standard and includes the highest level of attack testing for padlocks. The crucial difference between this and other testing standards – such as CEN – is that the security rating classification is determined by the time it takes to remove a padlock based on different types of commonly used tools.

Accreditation is only received through rigorous third-party testing and is designed to offer maximum protection for the UK’s infrastructure sectors.

Clive Baker, Director of Security Locking at dormakaba commented: “For those looking to make a robust specification for high security locations – this is an important accreditation to look for. Achieving LPS 1654: Issue 1 status provides our customers with reassurance of the reliability, security and performance of dormakaba padlocks and highlights our continued commitment to industry best practice.”
