2N products have been successfully tested as critical components within LPS 1175 Issue 7 SR2 specification for testing and classifying the burglary resistance of building components and security enclosures.

Michael Nicholson, 2N’s Business Development Manager for the UK and Ireland, says, “We are very proud that our intercoms and access unit readers are now SBD accredited. Our products are being incorporated into more and more major projects throughout the UK – Sópers House, just outside London, and Burlington House in central Manchester are recent examples – and SBD certification is being requested more and more often, both in commercial and residential buildings. It’s an objective guarantee that our products meet the highest security standards, and it will be a big advantage as we continue to grow our business in the UK.”

Lyn Poole, Development Officer at Police Crime Prevention Initiative Secured by Design, says, “Access control in residential or commercial buildings needs to be fit for purpose and the fact that 2N’s products have been independently tested and certified within doorsets to police-recognised standards will help their customers feel more confident about their safety within their building when these products are installed.”
