ASSA ABLOY Powershield Rathlin door offers LPS 2081 certification

  • 24 Oct 2023

Door Group, a unit of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland, is advising specifiers and installers to choose the LPS 2081 certified Powershield Rathlin door for applications that require a secure and robust solution that is safe from attack and vandalism.

One of the most recent additions to the market-leading Powershield range, the Rathlin door prevents unauthorised access by various physical security products when targeted by intruders using stealth.

Certification to LPS 2081 from the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), BRE and Secured by Design provides assurance to customers that the door meets the stringent requirements for effective performance.

The LPS 2081 standard was created in 2015 to address resistance to opportunist intruders attempting ‘stealth’ attacks to gain entry. The standard specifies two grades of security relating to the tools used and the time attackers take to avoid making any significant noise.

This standard is separate from LPS 1175, which relates to vandalism and security, but has different requirements for the noise element. The Powershield Rathlin doors are LPS 2081 Security B rated, the more advanced rating, prolonging the attack for up to 3 minutes, and with an enhanced set of tools.

What it comprises?

It comprises a mechanical escape lock with automatic deadlocking, panic pad, key with AASD Guard, louvre vents, pull handle, surface mounted pull handle, vision panels, and active leaf. Combined, these aspects prove an incredibly tough challenge for vandals. 

Brian Sofley, Managing Director at Door Group, explains: “At Door Group we understand how important it is that our doorset solutions meet the standards and legislation for safety and security.

“The Powershield Rathlin door’s LPS 2081 certification demonstrates its ability to withstand a stealth attack, where the intruder avoids making significant noise that would usually draw attention.

“Since launching the door last year, we have had extremely positive feedback from customers, and it is an excellent addition to our comprehensive portfolio of high-performance products.

“The Powershield steel door range combines high performance with high quality, offering a fully compliant, fully finished door set with factory-fitted hardware. Plus, doors and frames are designed to ensure ease of installation on-site and provide the end user with a premium door solution.”
