ASSA ABLOY door certified secure

ASSA ABLOY’s Powershield Rathlin door has secured LPS 2081 certification.

One of the most recent additions to the Powershield range, the Rathlin door prevents unauthorised access by various physical security products when targeted by intruders using stealth.

Certification to LPS 2081 from the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), BRE and Secured by Design provides assurance to customers that the door meets the stringent requirements for effective performance. The certification makes the Powershield Rathlin door suitable for applications that require a secure and robust solution that is safe from attack and vandalism.

Standard specified two grades of security

The LPS 2081 standard was created in 2015 to address resistance to opportunist intruders attempting ‘stealth’ attacks to gain entry. The standard specifies two grades of security relating to the tools used and the time attackers take to avoid making any significant noise. 

This standard is separate from LPS 1175, which relates to vandalism and security, but has different requirements for the noise element. The Powershield Rathlin doors are LPS 2081 Security B rated, the more advanced rating, prolonging the attack for up to three minutes, and with an enhanced set of tools. 

It comprises a mechanical escape lock with automatic deadlocking, panic pad, key with AASD Guard, louvre vents, pull handle, surface mounted pull handle, vision panels, and active leaf. Combined, these aspects prove an incredibly tough challenge for vandals.  

Brian Sofley, managing director at Door Group (a unit of ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions UK & Ireland) explained: “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.

“The Powershield steel door range combines high performance with high quality, offering a fully compliant, fully finished door set with factory-fitted hardware. Plus, doors and frames are designed to ensure ease of installation on-site and provide the end user with a premium door solution.”
