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.”

Jacksons Fencing shortlisted for Data Centre Physical Security and Fire Suppression Product of the Year category at coveted DCS Awards

Jacksons Fencing (one of the UK’s leading designers, manufacturers and installers of security fencing and access control systems) has been shortlisted as a finalist in the hotly-contested Data Centre Physical Security and Fire Suppression Product of the Year category at this year’s DCS Awards.

The DCS Awards were created to acknowledge and reward product designers, manufacturers, suppliers and providers operating in the Data Centre arena. They recognise the achievements of solution vendors and their business partners alike and, in 2016, encompass a wider range of both facilities and IT categories than ever before.

The product selected by the panel is the Trident Jakoustic 3, an LPS 1175-certified perimeter fence designed, developed and manufactured by Jacksons Fencing. It’s the only timber-based fencing system that combines certified security ratings with acoustic barrier properties, and was designed specifically for sensitive applications where privacy, a discrete appearance and maximum protection against unauthorised access by cutting through, burrowing under and scaling over is required.

What makes Trident Jakoustic 3 ideal for applications in and around Data Centres is that it offers up to a 28 dB reduction in noise entering or migrating from a site. This is an important factor for a business operating 24/7, 365 days a year where generators for UPS and HVAC play an integral part in site operations.

Peter Jackson, CEO of Jacksons Fencing, commented: “It’s great to be recognised in the DCS Awards. It’s proof that, even in the Internet of Things obsessed world of data security, there’s recognition of the fact that, if you cannot protect the perimeter and manage access, you leave your facility, its staff and assets vulnerable to attack.”
