ASSA ABLOY Security Doors hosts BRE security testing day

ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, has delivered a successful security testing day in partnership with the Building Research Establishment (BRE). Held at the ASSA ABLOY Security Doors factory in Lisburn, Northern Ireland, the day saw an excellent turn-out of security professionals who witnessed various methods of attack on both steel and timber doorsets.

The event consisted of an overview of the LPS 1175 test standard, a comprehensive factory tour and a practical demonstration that showed the difference between certified and non-certified security doors.

Ian Broadley, business development manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Doors, said: “We hosted this event to help illustrate the difference between investing in a certificated product versus a product that may look similar visually, but can be compromised very easily when put to the test. A test rig was set up at our factory, housing two steel doors and two timber doors. The BRE team used various methods of attack to demonstrate how they were able to defeat the doors that were not built to meet LPS 1175 test standards.”

Broadley added: “We received a great deal of positive feedback from attendees, who included security consultants, end users, members of the police and Government personnel. Attendees commented on how thought-provoking it was to witness just how quickly non-certified doors could be compromised.”
