LPCB approval for padlock

by Mark Rowe

Squire has achieved LPCB (Loss Protection Certification Board) approval for its Stronghold SS80.

This British-made padlock, capable of a tensile pull of 16-20 tonnes, the firm says, has been approved to LPCB’s standard LPS 1654: Issue 1.0 security rating classification SR3. Squire’s SS80 features a 2kg solid steel lock body and 16mm diameter hardened boron steel shackle. Applications the makers say include perimeter gates, warehouses, containers, lorries and security doors.

Managing director John Squire said: “This important accreditation is another example of Squire’s ongoing commitment to best practice and ensuring our purpose designed products offer exceptional resistance against a sustained attack.” On behalf of LPCB, Richard Flint said: “We are delighted to certify Squire in recognition of their padlocks’ fantastic performance to LPS 1654. Their approval through LPCB provides significant reassurance of their padlock reliability.”
