Automatic doors are widely used in various commercial and public settings, providing convenience, accessibility, and smooth traffic flow. However, as public security concerns continue to evolve, it’s crucial to ensure that automatic doors meet certain security standards to protect both people and property.

These security standards include the LPS 1175 standard, which was developed by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) – an independent third-party certification body.

Understanding LPS 1175

LPS 1175 is used to test the resistance of physical security products, including automatic doors, against unauthorised access. The LPS 1175 certification provides a clear indication of a door’s performance and durability against different levels of attack, as categorised by the standard.

Grading System

LPS 1175 utilises a grading system that ranges from SR 1 (Security Rating) to SR 8, indicating varying levels of resistance to forced entry.

The higher the SR level, the more robust the door’s construction and the longer it takes for intruders to gain access. For instance, an SR 1 door provides a basic level of resistance, while an SR 8 door offers the highest level of protection against sophisticated attacks.

At GDUK Door Solutions we lead the industry in setting new standards in door automation. Our commitment to product development has led to us becoming the first automatic sliding door supplier to achieve LPS 1175 accreditation.

Our range of automatic security-rated sliding door sets offer optimum resistance to break-in attempts whilst providing architecturally pleasing people flow solutions.

Components of LPS 1175 Certification

To achieve LPS 1175 certification, automatic doors undergo rigorous testing that assesses their structural integrity, lock systems, glazing, and overall resistance against various forms of forced entry techniques, such as drilling, cutting, and impact.

This comprehensive evaluation ensures that the doors meet the necessary security standards and provide reliable protection against unauthorised access.

Benefits of LPS 1175 Certification

Opting for automatic doors that adhere to LPS 1175 standards offers several benefits:

  1. Enhanced Security: LPS 1175-certified doors are designed to withstand prolonged and determined attacks, providing a robust security barrier against potential intruders.
  2. Deterrence: The mere presence of LPS 1175-certified doors acts as a deterrent to potential criminals, as they recognise the substantial effort required to breach these doors.
  3. Peace of Mind: With LPS 1175 certification, businesses and organisations can have confidence in the effectiveness of their security measures, ensuring the safety of occupants and valuable assets.
  4. Insurance Compliance: Some insurance policies require specific security standards to be met. Installing LPS 1175-certified doors can help meet these requirements, potentially reducing insurance premiums.
