Padlocks from Abloy achieve UK-first standard

  • 6 Jan 2015

LPCB certification has been awarded to padlocks from Abloy

Abloy’s Series 6 range has gained a UK first for padlocks, achieving LPS 1654 Issue 1 SR Level 4 from the LPCB.

Working within the Building Research Establishment (BRE) and alongside government and industry suppliers, the LPCB sets out guidelines that ensure security products operate to certain required standards. It offers third-party approval to guarantee that these standards are upheld.

LPS 1654 Issue 1.0 incorporates physical attack assessments, which have been designed to test the physical security of the UK’s Infrastructure. These examinations are conducted by an experienced team of attack testers from BRE.

Achieving a LPCB approval to LPS 1654 indicates that padlocks have performed successfully in these tests.

In addition, 10 other Abloy padlocks – including the electromechanical CLIQ range and mechanical padlocks – were awarded classifications that ranged from SR 2 to SR3, after being tried to LPS 1654 Issue 01.

All Abloy patent protected key mechanisms achieved a LPCB Plus rating during testing. They were evaluated to BS3621:2007 Annex A 6 and to the manipulation resistance class 1 as defined in LPS 1242 : Issue 2.
