New Security Products from SWS UK Get Seal of Approval from Police

2 weeks ago

Even more innovative products by marketing-leading security door manufacturers, SWS UK, have been given the seal of approval from the Secured By Design (SBD) initiative and the LPS 1175 burglary resistance standard.

Two new products have been added to the company’s extensive list of security rated products after undergoing a rigorous testing and approval process by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB).

LPCB are the UK’s leading independent certification body and the LPS 1175 standard is recognised and endorsed by 16 organisations including the Association of British Insurers and the Association of Police Officers.

Secured By Design is also the police preferred measure, which the new products have also received due to their innovative security standards.

The two new products to make it onto the list are the SeceuroDoor 7502 Industrial and the SeceuroDoor 9501.

SeceuroDoor 7502 – Awarded LPCB Security Rating Level 2

Following the completion of extensive development and testing, the SeceuroDoor 7502 has recently been added to SWS UK’s range of industrial products.

After undergoing independent testing by the LPCB, the commercial shutter was awarded a Level 2 Security Rating, allowing for an extra level of safety than that assured by the SBD. This new development is available online alongside the existing 7501 (with a Level 1 Security Rating) and the standard SeceuroDoor 75.

To be awarded the Level 2 Security Rating, the LPCB put the 7502 through rigorous tests, which included a series of timed-attacks with even more sophisticated tools than those used for the Level 1 measures. Throughout these tests, the 7502, which can span widths up to 6800mm and heights of 4200mm, met all the standards set by the board and was awarded the prestigious rating as a result.

To enable this extra security, the in-house product development team at SWS UK equipped the SeceuroDoor 7502 with a range of adjustments to enable the shutter to benefit from advanced security but with the style and ease of their existing industrial shutters.

Popular with medium security retail and industrial applications, the Level 2 Rated SeceuroDoor 7502 is galvanised as standard and available with an industrial motor.

SeceuroDoor 9501 – Awarded LPCB Security Rating Level 1

Alongside the existing industrial SeceuroDoor 95, the SeceuroDoor 9501 has also received accreditation from the LPCB and has the added stamp of approval from the Police’s official Secured By Design initiative.

The 9501 has been awarded the Level 1 LPS 1175 burglary resistance standard after undergoing rigorous testing and development. This level of test ensures that the shutter prevents forcible entry into a building for a minimum period with a specified tool-set.

Designed with minimal thermal bridges, fine-pored PU rigid foam and sealing technology also allows the 9501 to benefit from thermal and acoustic insulation. The acoustic reduction rating of this insulated steel profile is 27 dB and comes with a Wind Class Rating of 5.

The SeceuroShield 7502 with an industrial motor and the SeceuroDoor 9501 have both been tested and approved to LPS 1175 and are available online now.
