Choosing your physical security protection

Tested and certified security products are designed to provide a level of time delay to protect you, your family and your possessions. This is important when choosing your security product and security supplier.

Certified security starts at low levels, for example keeping items safely locked away from being taken easily, to high security safes designed for keeping large amounts of cash and valuables up to £2,500,000.

Panic rooms, high security steel walling and armoured high security doors are designed to protect people and possessions while under attack. The level and protection you choose should be carefully thought out. How long will it take to get help from the emergency services or your security company and is there a risk of attack using weapons?

Each level of security protection offer a tested amount of physical protection against different attack tools and weapons. The higher the level, the more protection you are buying – in short, you are buying time!

For the highest levels of personal and valuables protection we offer a range of banking level strongrooms and vaults. These are heavily constructed rooms and doors, usually built at ground levels. Perfect for a safe retreat and storing high amounts of cash, bullion and valuables. We have a range that is tested and certified to Grade 13.

LPCB certification is recognised by insurers, consultants, architects and risk managers across the globe.

Products that are tested to LPCB standards can reduce liability for our customers because of the demonstrated due diligence that having a product certified provides.

Products are rigorously assessed in order to achieve certification. Testing and evaluation makes up an early part of the process, followed by auditing the factory production to ensure high standards are maintained.

Once the product is successfully certified, it is then listed on RedBookLive. It is here that our products are seen by specifiers to verify the status of our tested products.

Once a product has been certified, continuous audits are carried out
to ensure that certification is maintained.
