Benefits of using LPCB accredited Security Shutters

LPCB (Loss Prevention Certification Board) certification is a widely recognized standard in the field of security products, including shutters. LPCB certification indicates that a product has undergone rigorous testing and evaluation to ensure its effectiveness in preventing losses due to criminal activity, fire, or other security threats.

Here are some benefits associated with LPCB-certified shutters:

  1. High Security Standards:
    • LPCB-certified shutters meet stringent security standards set by the Loss Prevention Certification Board. This certification is a mark of quality and reliability in terms of security performance.
  2. Resistance to Forced Entry:
    • LPCB-certified shutters are designed and tested to resist forced entry attempts, providing a robust physical barrier against unauthorized access to buildings or sensitive areas.
  3. Reliability in Critical Situations:
    • LPCB-certified shutters are often chosen for critical infrastructure, government buildings, and other high-security installations where reliability is of utmost importance. These shutters are designed to perform effectively in emergency situations.
  4. Compliance with Standards:
    • LPCB certification ensures that shutters comply with specific standards related to security and fire protection. This compliance provides confidence to end-users and authorities that the shutters meet industry-recognized benchmarks.
  5. Insurance Approval:
    • LPCB certification is often recognized and accepted by insurance companies. Installing LPCB-certified shutters may lead to insurance premium reductions as they demonstrate a commitment to security and risk mitigation.
  6. Quality Assurance:
    • LPCB certification involves regular audits and testing to ensure that the manufacturing processes and materials used in the shutters maintain a high level of quality and consistency.
  7. Integrity Testing:
    • LPCB testing may include integrity tests to evaluate the performance of shutters under various conditions, such as exposure to extreme temperatures or physical impact.
  8. Durability and Longevity:
    • LPCB-certified shutters are built with durable materials and construction methods, ensuring a longer lifespan. This durability reduces the need for frequent maintenance and replacements.
  9. Public and Government Sector Acceptance:
    • LPCB certification is often preferred in public and government sectors where security standards are critical. It provides assurance to stakeholders, including government agencies, that the shutters meet or exceed established security requirements.
  10. Versatility and Customization:
    • LPCB-certified shutters come in various designs and configurations to meet specific security needs. They can be customized to fit different architectural styles and applications.
  11. Integrated Security Systems:
    • LPCB-certified shutters can be integrated into comprehensive security systems, including access control and surveillance, to provide a holistic security solution for buildings and facilities.

It’s important to note that the benefits of LPCB-certified shutters may vary depending on the specific product and its intended application. When considering LPCB-certified shutters, it’s advisable to work with reputable manufacturers or suppliers who can provide detailed information about the certification, testing processes, and the specific features of the shutters.

Security Shutters for Government Buildings

Security shutters play a crucial role in enhancing the protection and safety of government buildings. These shutters are designed to provide a physical barrier against unauthorized access, vandalism, and potential security threats.

Here are some key considerations and benefits of using security shutters for government buildings:

  1. Physical Barrier:
    • Deterrence: Security shutters act as a visible deterrent to potential intruders, discouraging unauthorized access to government facilities.
    • Tamper Resistance: High-quality security shutters are often designed to resist tampering, making it difficult for individuals with malicious intent to breach the building.
  2. Protection Against Forced Entry:
    • Reinforced Materials: Security shutters are typically constructed from robust materials such as steel or aluminium, providing a strong barrier against forced entry attempts.
    • Locking Mechanisms: Advanced locking systems, including electronic and remote-controlled options, enhance the security level and make it more challenging for unauthorized individuals to manipulate the shutters.
  3. Privacy and Confidentiality:
    • Visual Privacy: Security shutters provide an additional layer of visual privacy for sensitive government operations or classified information.
    • Controlled Access: Shutters can be controlled to limit access to specific areas, ensuring that only authorized personnel can enter restricted zones.
  4. Weather Protection:
    • Storm Resistance: Security shutters can offer protection against extreme weather conditions, including storms, hurricanes, and heavy winds, safeguarding the building’s integrity and contents.
  5. Emergency Situations:
    • Rapid Deployment: Some security shutters are designed for rapid deployment in emergency situations, providing quick and effective lockdown capabilities.
    • Fire Resistance: Depending on the materials used, security shutters may offer fire-resistant properties, contributing to the overall safety of the building.
  6. Integration with Security Systems:
    • Alarm Integration: Security shutters can be integrated with alarm systems, triggering alerts in the event of an attempted breach.
    • Surveillance Compatibility: These shutters can work in tandem with surveillance systems to provide a comprehensive security solution for government buildings.
  7. Customisation and Aesthetics:
    • Architectural Integration: Security shutters can be designed to seamlessly integrate with the architectural aesthetics of government buildings, maintaining a professional appearance.
    • Custom Finishes: Some security shutters offer customisation options, allowing government agencies to choose finishes that align with the overall design and branding.
  8. Compliance and Standards:
    • Meeting Regulations: Security shutters can be selected and installed in compliance with relevant security standards and regulations applicable to government facilities.
    • Certification: Products suitable for use in Government buildings will, on the whole, require a higher level of security, and these can be found by looking for products with relevant Loss Prevention and Certification Board (LPCB), of which Aluroll have a large number of options
  9. Maintenance and Durability:
    • Low Maintenance: Many security shutters are designed to be low-maintenance, ensuring that they remain in optimal condition without requiring frequent repairs.
    • Longevity: High-quality materials and construction contribute to the longevity and reliability of security shutters.

When implementing security shutters for government buildings, it’s crucial to conduct a thorough risk assessment, consider the specific security needs of the facility, and work with reputable suppliers or manufacturers who specialize in security solutions for public and government structures.

Additionally, collaboration with security experts and adherence to local regulations and standards are essential aspects of the planning and implementation process.

Aluroll Installers Benefit from the Best Control Options in the Industry

We’ve always been at the forefront of automation technology, offering both Teleco and Somfy control panels on our Secureroll roller garage doors.

All remote control systems are plug and play and fully commissioned and tested in-house prior to despatch to save time on site.

TELECO


This time last year we introduced our new Teleco control panel. Its exclusive design is still the only Teleco panel in the market with an integrated alarm as standard.

Feedback from our installers over the past year has been overwhelmingly positive. They are benefitting from new selling points, including the 98Db vibration alarm which sounds if excessive force is applied to the door.

The old panel’s light bulb was upgraded to a powerful LED strip, and setting motor limits and safety edge exclusions were made easier.

Mobile phone activation can also be enabled with the simple addition of a plug-in circuit board with a SIM card. This enables users to communicate with their door via text message so they can receive a notification when the alarm is triggered or remotely provide temporary access for deliveries.

The new Teleco panel still comes with the choice of a wired or wireless safety edge at no extra cost, as well as other great features like holiday mode and bidirectional communication with compatible wireless wall switches.

SOMFY

Somfy are one of the world’s most recognisable brands in motors and controls, and their Rollixo panel is an established industry favourite.

It can be integrated into the TaHoma smart home system for touch control of the roller garage door via smartphone or tablet. Somfy’s wide product range extends to controls for blinds, curtains, lights and heating, and these can all be controlled using the same app.

The Somfy panel shares many features with the Teleco one, with a built-in alarm, courtesy light and holiday mode option. Both come with two handsets as standard.

Aluroll customers have the choice of the latest and most innovative control options in the marketplace. Whether you want to try the latest Teleco design or learn more about the Somfy Rollixo system, please contact the office for showroom or on-site training as required.

Aluroll Achieves ISO 9001:2015 Certification

Aluroll has recently been awarded the latest quality accreditation by BRE Global. The ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System requires an assessment of seven quality management principles, including Customer Focus.

Conformity means a company is able to consistently provide products that meet regulatory requirements. It also shows we can use the system to enhance customer satisfaction.

Our new stock management, cut sheet and ordering system played an important role in achieving the ISO 9001:2015 accreditation. Office and manufacturing processes became more streamlined, with improvements in key areas such as the monitoring and resolution of non-conformances.

Andy Hall, Quality Manager at Aluroll, said:

“We’re pleased that we passed the ISO 9001:2015 audit. Aluroll has always had strong quality systems in place, and our service levels have improved significantly with the introduction of the new cloud-based software. We can identify and solve potential issues earlier than ever before, in many cases before they impact our customers at all. We’ve also had great feedback about our new quotation and ordering processes”.

 

Storage Extension Caters to Aluroll’s Growth

We have rearranged our factories and extended our storage to help serve a growing customer base. The new shelter is part of the existing manufacturing facility in Oswestry, Shropshire. The lean-to building can stock up to 46 stillages, housing additional slats to assist with the increase in orders.

Mark Evans, Managing Director, said: “Aluroll has gone from strength to strength in recent years and our factory extension will help us maintain our fast turnaround times. We have exciting plans for 2018 which will continue to provide growth for the company.”
