Tecdur Display Secure is a secure display case glazing solution widely used for retail displays, jewellery cabinets, counters and other situations where valuable items need to be protected against ‘smash and grab’ threats.
Our display case glass range provides impact resistance and is manufactured from glass-polymer composites engineered to withstand very high levels of sustained manual attack. Tecdur Display Secure can be manufactured as single side glass clad, dual side clad, double glazed or multi-ply.
Glazing is often the first line of defence against intrusion. Smash and grab crime has steadily increased in recent years and costs UK businesses £millions each year. Therefore, display glazing needs to be able to protect property from physical attack. The composition and thickness of glass constructions are threat specific. Tecdur Display Secure helps counteract the evolving threat levels associated with sustained manual attack. Thus whether it is for a jewellery display or a temporary art installation, our display glass has been accredited to the EN 356 [P6B-P8B] and LPS 1270 [SR1-SR6] standards for attack resistant glazing. EN 356 testing requires that products demonstrate performance in withstanding high impact strikes.
The standard consists of 8 levels [P1A-P8B]. EN 356 levels P1A-P8B testing involves dropping a steel ball from increasing height onto the glass surface. Whereas EN 356 P6B-P8B requires a product to withstand multiple strikes from a mechanical axe which is designed to simulate the types of strikes associated with deliberate and organised attack. The P6B-P8B test itself involves impacting the glass with a hammer at least 12 times in order to break the glass surface before attempting to cut a 400×400 square aperture by repeated impacts from a mechanical axe. If the glass can withstand up to 30-50 axe strikes before creating an aperture, P6B will be achieved. If the number of strikes is between 51-70, P7B will be achieved and over 70 will achieve P8B.
Our display case glass has also achieved certification to the LPS 1270 standard for intruder resistant glazing. LPS 1270 was created by the Loss Prevention Certification Board following consultation with Police and Insurers. The standard is designed to simulate a more ‘realistic’ set of manual attack tests. The LPS 1270 classification system rates a piece of glass with a three-digit code, e.g. LPS 1270 1.1.2. Each digit describes the glasses resistance to the creation of different sized holes made a series of tools used for increasing the length of time – up to 10 minutes. The first digit indicates how long and with what tools it takes to create a hole in the glass big enough to pass a piece of wire through to potentially open a handle or lock. The second digit is determined by how long and with what tools it takes to create a hole big enough to get a hand through the window to operate a handle or lock. The third digit involves the creation of a space large enough to fit a human torso through. To maintain this onerous certification we undergo regular audits to ensure that our products and processes conform to the standard’s strict requirements.
