Safety equipment testing in the past
Throughout the history of safe manufacturing, manufacturers have often claimed that their products are absolutely safe from burglary and fire. They have designed and manufactured the products, but they have not tested them. Unfortunately, too many times their promises have proved to be empty.
The offending party has always had a theoretical idea of a burglary, and then tested it more or less successfully in the real world. It is only in more recent times that manufacturers, mainly under pressure from insurers and users, have started to systematically test their products. The system for testing and verifying burglar or fire protection quality has been added to and improved over the years.
Safety equipment testing today
Today, burglar testing means that experts from a specialised testing laboratory break into a test sample under near-realistic conditions. In doing so, the testers have more time, better organisation, better burglary devices and tools, and better product knowledge than the offending party.
An anti-burglary product certificate is an acknowledgement that the manufacturer of a product has sufficient experienced personnel, knowledge and equipment, that it has internal quality checks and that its production system is subject to external inspections and verifications.
