LPCB offers certification of security glazing to one or more of the following standards:
LPS 1270: Issue 1Requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listing of intruder resistant security glazing units
EN 356: 2000 Glass in Building - Security Glazing. Testing and classification of resistance against manual attack
EN 1063: 2000 Glass in building. Security Glazing. Testing and classification of resistance against bullet attack.
LPS 1270 was developed because it was considered the method for classifying the attack resistance of security glazing specified within the current European standard (EN 356: 2000) was incompatible with that employed within LPS 1175: Issue 7 Requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listing of intruder resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers. This was because:
EN 356: 2000 does not classify glass according to its resistance to different levels of attack based on the tools and time available to an intruder.
The tests contained within EN 356: 2000 do not evaluate the glass’s susceptibility to attacks involving the creation of small holes through which locking hardware may be manipulated and/or protected items, such as items on display within shop windows or display cases, may be removed.
