What is LPCB - Insurance approved??

A selection of Asgard products are LPCB approved, but what does this mean?

LPCB stands for Loss Prevention Certification Board. The LPCB has been working with industry and government for over 100 years, setting the standards needed to ensure that fire and security products perform effectively.

When you purchase an LPCB approved product, you know that what you are purchasing will help to reduce the risk of fire and theft.

How are LPCB products tested?

For each product type, different requirements and testing procedures take place. To gain LPCB approval of an intruder resistant building, such as an Asgard shed, the following testing is undertaken.
