Certification modernised with latest tools

The EN standard used in certifying safes and cabinets with a high level of burglary resistance has been updated to accommodate advanced tooling, namely T2.

As with any standard, independent certification bodies routinely assess the efficacy and relevance of their standards, and it is important to stay up to date with an ever changing and developing landscape.  These regulatory updates can reflect changes in industry practices, innovations in technology or target recently identified safety issues.

Unwaveringly dedicated to providing a range of the highest quality products with the best possible standard levels, Chubbsafes products are designed to withstand attack methods experienced in the real world. Consequently, Gunnebo has played an active part in supporting the creation of the European (EN) burglary standards since their inception in the late 1980s, standards that are applied to many of the products available under the Chubbsafes brand.

Certification standards can and will always change in line with the development of more sophisticated tooling technology and it is our ambition to create products that meet all of the latest standards.

In April 2019 the European Standard for safes, ATM safes, strongrooms and strongroom doors (EN 1143-1) was updated. Since its publication, the general specification of the burglary tools in EN 1143-1 had not been adapted. In addition to the options "EX" (solid explosive testing), "GAS" (gas explosive testing) and "CD" (additional core drill testing) the document now includes a new "T2 option" (attack with an amended set of tools).

It is important to note that the European standardisation groups did not deem it necessary to adapt the original EN 1143-1 tool list, as there is no evidence that current certified products show any significant weaknesses during real burglary attacks. As the new sophisticated tooling is readily available to criminals, it was decided to integrate an option to allow evaluation of products against these new burglary tools in addition to existing ones.

Tools tested to achieve the T2 grades

Electric cutting discs

The tools used in testing are now more powerful. Formerly only 800 Watts, they are now 1350 Watts. The discs also have thinner cutting edges, are more abrasive and are thus much more effective than they were at the time of writing the original test procedures.

Hole cutters & saws

Carbide tipped hole cutter & tungsten tipped circular saw are easily obtainable from DIY stores and can be highly effective against old designs. Not previously included, these tools are now specified in the T2 version testing safes designed for high levels of security.

Thermal lances

Often used by the film industry for maximum visual effect, these tools are a reality when it comes to attacking large safes and strong rooms. They have become more effective over time and the list of those permitted to be used has increased.

Impact Tools

Impact tools used for breaking concrete are more powerful and consequently effective against materials historically used in the barriers of safes. The standard revision takes notice of these, and electric building hammers are included when testing products intended to provide the higher most levels of protection.
