Testing & Certification

Independently Tested Solutions from CLD

Highly-sensitive sites and high-risk buildings are subject to some of the highest levels of threat. These can include Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) sites, secure units, and other high-security facilities.

Physical security concerns four main areas: Deterring intruders, detecting and delaying attackers and responding to an attack.

CLD’s high security range has been independently tested and is certified by the Loss Prevention Certification Board, part of the Building Research Establisment (BRE).

The LPCB is a globally recognised independent body which sets the standards that ensure that security products perform effectively and publishes them in its Red Book.

At CLD, we will create a specification tailored to the site, ensuring the appropriate level of security is installed in each situation.

With increased durability and protection, our range includes fencing that is anti-climb, hard to cut, limited visibility, and twin or more panelled.

Not all sensitive sites are permanent. For events and high-risk construction sites, we have an on-ground (temporary) security rated system in FenceSafe Securus SR1 and also a security rated hoard system in our innovative HoardSafe S1.

LPS 1175 – the physical security testing standard

LPS 1175 is the Loss Prevention Certification Board standard for intruder-resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures, and free-standing barriers. Issue 8 of the LPS 1175 was issued in November 2020. The new classifications are shown in the table below.


Understanding the classifications

The standard uses different tool kits and durations to categorise security ratings against particular threat levels.
Threat levels are represented by different tool kits, varying from low technology up to extreme professional-level attacks. These are indicated by letters A–H. The delay, indicated by the number, corresponds with the minimum delay in minutes provided by the product.
