What is LPS 1175 and what’s changed?

LPS1175 Desktop Security

‘LPS’ is the abbreviation for Loss Prevention Standard and ‘LPS1175’ is just one of many standards created by the Loss Prevention Certification Board. 

LPS1175 specifically focuses on the intruder resistance and security of doors, and in Strongdor’s case, steel doors.

 

Why am I seeing new terminology in regard to LPS 1175?

You might start to notice a shift in how security-rated doors are described, that’s because as of 2019, LPS 1175: Issue 8.1 now states the security rating titles we should all be using. Wider variations make it easier for consumers to pick and choose exactly what security level they require. With the new 8.1 issue, you can now specify from 48 different combinations to ensure you always feel safe and secure within your premises.

 

How can I compare the old and new ratings?

The table below clearly lays out all the new security ratings by their delay time and tool kit. Just follow your chosen tool kit up till you meet your desired delay time to find your perfect security rating. In red are the old SR ratings at their registered level of security for easy comparison.

Below are some examples from each toolkit. For full tool kit list’s, descriptions and further information, visit the LPS1175:Issue 8.1 online.
