LPCB approves first fence to LPS 1175, Security Rating 3

Jacksons Fencing has recently gained LPCB approval for its timber security fencing system to LPS 1175: Issue 6 Security Rating 3.

The fence, marketed under the name 'Jakoustic Class 3' is the first to be approved to Security Rating 3. Products certified to these standards resist experienced attempts at forced entry using a wide range of tools.

LPCB is working very closely with a growing number of fence manufacturers and expect to approve a range of new fencing systems over the next few months. Specifiers seeking to source high performance security fencing should therefore keep a close eye on the listings in the external security barrier section in Volume 2 of the LPCB Red Book. This volume contains the list of all security products and services approved by LPCB and is available free of charge at http://www.redbooklive.com/.

LPCB will be hosting a series of seminars focussing on perimeter protection at the Red Book Pavilion at the IFSEC exhibition taking place at NEC between 10 and 14 May. LPCB's team of specialist test and approvals engineers will also be available to answer queries from manufacturers and specifiers at the forthcoming Counter Terror Exhibition at Olympia on 14 and 15 April (stand no G105).

Notes for Editors

1.         LPS 1175 - Requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listing of intruder resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers.  The purpose of this standard is to evaluate the resistance to unauthorised access offered by various physical security products.  The standard specifies eight grades of security according to the tools and time likely to be used by an intruder. Specifiers can therefore select products/systems that provide levels of security matching their needs.

Products certified to these standards resist experienced attempts at forced entry using a wide range of tools including battery powered tools lasting up to 10 minutes (SR 4 and 5) or 5 minutes (SR 3).
