Surefire pride themselves as the market leader for personal protection systems, and we are pleased to announce that we have just become the first company in the UK to achieve LPS 1655 certification for our PPS unit UltraGuard.
LPS 1655 defines rigorous test protocols and performance criteria for personal protection systems, following two years of research and development work at BRE Global’s world-leading fire research and test centre in Watford (UK). LPS 1655 offers a robust third party approval standard to give confidence and establish a performance level for PPS in the absence of a dedicated BS or EN standard. Most recently, the Care Quality Commission has added fire prevention and risk recognition to its Common Induction Standards, the training received by all care workers.
“With over 6 years of saving lives and working with communities in the UK, this new certification will mean that our customers can place their trust in UltraGuard knowing that that our unit has been fully tested in fire scenarios, each component has been rigorously checked and our working practises are audited and monitored in accordance with our LPS 1655 accredited certification”. Explains Jo Cherriman, Marketing Director.
Since its inception in 2010, and following feedback from our customers our newly improved UltraGuard2 model now features an easy to use keypad, fully monitored double knock smoke detection, access to a wireless auto dialler and is housed within a smaller and lighter structure. Our team will also be assembling the UltraGuard2 within our offices and completing our own quality checking and auditing to LPS 1655.
