Ensuring the firm maintains LPCB Security Ratings
UK security fencing manufacturer Jacksons Fencing has recently completed its transition to the most up-to-date version of the international quality management standard ISO 9001:2015 with certified accreditation from BRE Global, a UKAS accredited certification body. This ensures Jacksons Fencing retains its Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) approval, LPS 1175, for its SR1 to SR5 Security Rated products. Only companies that have secured ISO 9001are eligible to have items Security Rated by the LPCB.
The LPCB’s LPS 1175 Security Rated certification is only awarded to products and systems that meet and surpass rigorous standards and perform effectively. These are assessed and awarded against a scale ranging from SR1 for lower risk security applications such as those required by schools, to SR3 and above for sites facing the highest levels of risk.
Cris Francis, Head of Security Sales at Jacksons Fencing, comments: “Security products have to offer peace of mind and provide maximum protection against intruders. When specifying perimeter security and access control solutions, the guarantee of a scheme such as the LPCB’s offers independent third party assurance that products have undergone rigorous testing. To secure LPCB Security Rating, only the best-managed firms with the most robust quality control are allowed to apply. This is demonstrated in part by the achievement of the international quality management award, ISO 9001:2015.”
Jacksons Fencing has over 80 LPCB Security Rated products available across a wide range of SR rated categories, ensuring the company is able to deliver integrated perimeter and access control solutions for a wide range of security requirements and to cater for a variety of risk levels. The company offers fencing products including vertical bar, mesh, timber and timber and steel combination as well as security gates. Beyond this, Jacksons Fencing is the only company currently offering an SR5, single layer fence system. This is the highest SR level achieved by a fencing system.
Jacksons’ Director Andy Tune states: “There is a clear link between our relentless focus on top quality manufacturing and superb customer service. Our rigorous quality and customer feedback processes have been included within our ISO 9001:2015 management system accreditation. This, combined with an expert, professional team, means we are well placed to service a growing and understandably demanding customer base into the future.”
Quality Manager Liz Warren adds: “We are very pleased to have successfully transitioned to the revised standard and found the process particularly constructive in driving forward quality initiatives.”
Francis concludes: “Jacksons is committed to meeting the changing demands of perimeter security and we have invested heavily in ensuring we have solutions that can be employed in the highest security situations. Beyond our investment in new products we, always look to innovate continually in everything we do. Part of this involves external assessment and auditing our internal processes and approaches against the leading international standards. The ISO 9001:2015 management system accreditation proves that our internal systems are a match with the world’s largest organisations. ”
