Why protection always pays

To make buildings safe and secure, choosing and installing fire safety and security products that do what they say they’ll do is vital.

Every industry needs to maintain high standards, however in industries such as construction – using products you know you can trust helps ensure safety, gives you peace of mind and reduces call backs. This is especially important when using products such as insulated roof and wall panels on industrial buildings and is why having a reliable mark of quality is so important when it comes to consistently choosing the right materials for the job.

For over 100 years the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), has acted as a bridge between industries and the government to ensure fire and security products and services perform to the highest standard. It offers third-party approval confirming that products and services have met and continue to meet, the necessary standards to perform effectively. Which is especially important when using products such as insulated roof and wall panels on industrial buildings.

LPCB has a number of benefits for both specifiers and manufacturers. For specifiers, using LPCB-approved products helps reduce fire and security risks, which can impact on a number of issues ranging from employee and customer safety to insurance. For manufacturers, gaining LPCB approval can affect both the value and sales of products, largely because LPCB-approved products are specified around the world and have universal conformance.

In a world of evolving standards, having the right checks in place can create peace of mind through the entire supply chain and help to maintain the reputations of all involved. The old adage that prevention is better than cure is true, and when combined with the knowledge that products adhere to industry standards, it creates an all encompassing approach to building safety.
