PR57a SunrayPickersgill-Kaye has received Loss Prevention Standard LPS 1175: Issue 7 – SR3 and SR4 security rating approval for the HS100 Series surface mount multipoint locking range following a joint test programme in conjunction with Sunray Engineering.

Sunray Engineering oversaw the accreditation process with the Loss Prevention Certification Board, which took several months to test the locking and doorset configurations required. The SR3 and SR4 security ratings apply to both Pickersgill-Kaye’s single and multipoint lock versions when fitted to Sunray Engineering’s “ExcluDoor” single and double security doorset range.

Sunray’s Managing Director David Evans explains: “We are delighted to become the first door manufacturer to achieve a full range of LPS 1175 level three and four approvals for our doors fitted with Pickersgill-Kaye’s single and multi-point locking systems. This accreditation not only allows our client base access to the considerable locking option range available but also allows consideration to be given to the aesthetics of the complete end user product offering, which is becoming increasingly relevant and important through architect driven specifications.”

Summarising, Pickersgill-Kaye’s High Security Locking Product Manager Mark Tailby said: “We conducted a series of independent tests beforehand to assure ourselves everything met the standards required before embarking on the full test programme with Sunray Engineering and it is the first time we have attained approval to SR3 and SR4 levels on a complete suite of high security locking products with one door manufacturer. This includes single and double doorset configurations.”
