SECURITY BY MICO Tindall Engineering

However demanding the application, MICO single and multipoint locks can be confidently relied upon for high level security protection.

We test our locking systems to the latest and most stringent physical attack standards and work closely with steel, timber and composite door, gate and enclosure manufacturers to fully integrate within their products.

Loss Prevention Certification Board Standard LPS 1175 has become the most universally recognised standard to evaluate the resistance to unauthorised access offered by physical security products. The standard categorises eight grades of security according to the tools and time likely to be used by a criminal. Specifiers are then able to select products/systems that provide levels of security to match their needs.

The methods of attack, duration of attack and tools employed increase significantly depending on the security rating required. For example the Security Rating 4 (SR4) test, designed to replicate experienced attempts at forced entry to a high risk commercial premises, could include tools such as a cordless drill, sledgehammer, steel wedges, disc cutter, bolt cutters, cold chisels and crowbars with a maximum test working time of 10 minutes. It is also important to note the issue number relating to the accreditation as the standard is regularly updated to account for new attack methods and tools becoming readily available.

MICO High Security Locking Solutions have attained LPS 1175 Security Ratings up to SR6 on both single and double doorsets, which enables us to offer an unrivalled choice of tested and accredited locks. Approved door and secure enclosure companies who have tested in conjunction with our lock products are listed within the ‘Security Protection Products’ section of the LPCB’s Red Book. Please visit:

Our products have also been tested and approved to the latest HM Government standards.
