The longer it takes to gain access to a building, and the louder an intruder has to be, the more likely they are to be deterred.
What does LPS1175 mean?
LPS1175 is a set of standards relating to loss prevention, hence LPS standing for “Loss Prevention Standard”, with the 1175 standard referring specifically to building components that are resistant to break-in.
Doors, fences, windows and shutters are all covered by the standards, and depending on which issue (there are currently 8), a rating is given to the building component that has been tested.
Most commonly, shutters are tested to issue 6 of the LPS1175 standards, and as such will have a security rating between 1 and 4, often shortened to SR1, SR2, SR3, or SR4. Each security rating offers a different level of protection, with 1 being the lowest and 4 being the highest.
A breakdown of the security ratings is as follows:
Based on low domestic risk and low commercial risk.
Products certified to this rating provide a level of resistance to opportunist attempts at forced entry, using bodily physical force and a limited range of hand tools, including those that create noise.
Tool Kit A
Maximum attack time: 1 minute
Maximum attack duration: 10 minutes
Based on low commercial risk.
Products certified to this level of security provide moderate resistance to determined attempts of force using a physical force and a wide range of hand tools with a more significant mechanical advantage, including those that create noise.
Tool Kit C
Maximum attack time: 5 minutes
Maximum attack duration: 20 minutes
Based on medium domestic risk and lower commercial risk.
Products certified to this security rating provide resistance to opportunist attempts at forced entry, using bodily physical force and a range of hand tools, including those that create noise.
Tool Kit B
Maximum attack time: 3 minutes
Maximum attack duration: 15 minutes
Based on medium commercial risk.
Products certified to this level provide resistance to experienced determined attempts at forced entry using a wide range of hand tools and battery power tools, with a disregard for noise created.
Tool Kit D
Maximum attack time: 10 minutes
Maximum attack duration: 30 minutes

What is Secured By Design?
Secured By Design is a police run initiative that aims to make sure houses can be built with products that provide certain levels of security.
If a product is approved by Secured By Design it meets the strict compliance standards set out by the scheme. Homes and buildings built to SBD standards are are 81% less likely to be burgled.
If you are building a new home, or renovating an existing property, ask your provider if the shutters they sell are SBD approved.

How Do High Security Shutters Work?
LPS1175 and Secured By Design shutters often need to be installed to meet exact conditions - for example in most cases it is a requirement that shutterss be installed on the internal face of an opening.
It is also not possible for high security shutters to be fire rated, as the requirements of the fire certifcation conflict with the requirements of the security certifications.
Other than that, they work very much the same way as a normal roller shutter - they are often heavier than a typical steel or aluminium shutter, especially the SR3 and SR4 models, so they require powerful 3 phase motors in order to operate.
Our range of steel roller shutters are ideal for your shopfront, carpark, warehouse, factory, or industrial unit. They provide great security to high risk areas, and are available in a range of colours, and a variety of styles, such as:
- Galvanized Lath
- Powder coated (any colour desired).
- Flat lath
- Tube and link
Perforated and punched finishes help to enable airflow and visibility into the premises, making them ideal for car parks or shops and other buildings with commercial applications.
Operation is available through electric motor (tubular or direct drive), or a counter balance spring for manual use. All electrically operated roller shutters can be fitted with any one of a variety of control options such as key switch, push buttons, remote control, keypad, and many more.
