LPS 1270 & 1175 Tool Categories

LPS 1270 and LPS 1175, which are the requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listings of intruder resistant security glazing units and building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and barriers respectively, use the same tool catagories and attack durations to determine the attack resistance of the products.
