Breaking down the LPS 2081 certification

Certification to LPS 2081 from the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), BRE, and Secured by Design offers confidence to consumers that the door complies with rigorous performance criteria.

Introduced in 2015, the LPS 2081 standard was established to counter stealthy attempts by opportunistic intruders.

This certification indicates two security grades, centred on the tools employed and the time taken by attackers to keep silent.

It’s noteworthy that this standard is distinct from LPS 1175, which concerns vandalism and security.

The Powershield Rathlin doors possess an LPS 2081 Security B rating, the higher of the two, resisting intrusions for up to 3 minutes using a superior toolkit.

Words from Door Group’s management

Brian Sofley, Managing Director at Door Group, stated: “At Door Group we understand how important it is that our doorset solutions meet the standards and legislation for safety and security.

“The Powershield Rathlin door’s LPS 2081 certification demonstrates its ability to withstand a stealth attack, where the intruder avoids making significant noise that would usually draw attention.

“Since launching the door last year, we have had extremely positive feedback from customers, and it is an excellent addition to our comprehensive portfolio of high-performance products.
