Attack Standards


Attack Standards


Physical attacks are often carried out for monetary gain (including asset theft), political purposes, vandalism, or general business disruption. In assessing solutions for protection from physical attack, a building's location, function, and occupants must all be considered. Test procedures generally involve a series of attack sequences with varying combinations of time and number of attackers, and using both human and mechanical test apparatus. The product solutions are designed to resist attack combinations of two or more physical threats in accordance with UL, DOS, ASTM, and HP White standards.
