In one of the most exciting advances in the security roller shutter market, Charter Global are pleased to announce that they have received certification for installing the Obexion range of shutters externally to buildings, to LPS 1175 issue 7.
Historically, any shutter certified to this standard could only be installed within, or on the inside face of an opening. This ensured that the fixings to the substrate were protected, along with any internal locking systems that were required for security integrity.
The unique, Obexion LockDown security system was pivotal in achieving approval for exterior roller shutters, as there are no auxiliary locking systems to attack. The intelligent design of the side guides also ensures protection against attack from a wide range of tools. At SR4 (security rating four) this includes: sledgehammers, axes, pry bars, jigsaws, angle grinders and much more, for a total attack duration of ten minutes. Our shutters are all certified to LPS 1175.
Having the ability to install shutters externally, widens the installation options massively for our clients. Particularly when they are looking to harden existing assets where the original building design may not have allowed for such products. In many applications, it allows the maximum clear opening height and width to be achieved, as well as maximising valuable internal floor space.
Product innovation to deliver real client benefit has been at the heart of the development of the Obexion range. This latest expansion confirms the company’s commitment to its ongoing journey and adds to the list of unique product features that Obexion is rightly proud of.
