We also approve windows to the following standards :
- EN 1627 Pedestrian doorsets, windows, curtain walling, grilles and shutters - Burglar resistance - Requirements and classification.
- PAS 24 Enhanced security performance requirements for doorsets and windows in the UK -External doorsets and windows intended to offer a level of security suitable for dwellings and other buildings exposed to comparable risk.
Products approved to LPS 1175 generally offer much higher protection against forced entry than products approved to EN 1627 or PAS 24. This is because products approved to LPS 1175 are subjected to physical attack tests with a wide range of tools aimed at overcoming all aspects of the product including aspects omitted by EN 1627 and PAS 24 such as the glazing (PAS 24) and the fixings used to install the product (EN 1627 and PAS 24).
LPCB has also published a standard for glazing and security glazing films which employs the principles contained within LPS 1175. LPS 1270 Requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listing of intruder resistant security glazing units covers the resistance to manual attack of the glazing material. It enables specifiers to select new or replacement glazing that affords levels of security equivalent to that of the frame or façade in which it is to be employed. Glazing approved to LPS 1270 is listed under Security glazing.
