Security Doors/Walls/Windows

The design, specification and testing standards for security rated doors, windows and walls are covered by LPS and ENV Standards:

  • ENV 1627 (1999) Windows, doors, shutters - Burglar resistance - Requirements and classification.
  • ENV 1628 (1999) Windows, doors, shutters - Burglar resistance – Test method for the determination of resistance under static loading.
  • ENV 1629 (1999) Windows, doors, shutters - Burglar resistance - Test method for the determination of resistance under dynamic loading.
  • ENV 1630 (1999) Windows, doors, shutters - Burglar resistance - Test method for the determination of resistance to manual burglary attempts.

The LPS standard describes tests for classifying the burglary resistance to physical attack of building components, such as doors, windows, shutters, grilles; strongpoints and security enclosures, e.g. access covers. The tests include the burglary resistance of the product and hardware. Where the product comprises an opening element, the element and its frame or guides are tested. Each opening configuration is subject to a separate evaluation. 

Our consultants have considerable experience in the design and specification of these physical security elements for project ranging from residential, commercial and government requirements. We have assisted some projects with the actual design of bespoke solutions where off the shelf rated products would not achieve the architectural intent or physical space/functionality.
