Standards and Classifications

Created by the European Committee for Standardization, the European Standard EN 1522 and EN 1063 is used and recognised by security specialists and providers throughout the world. While some companies often cite their own standards due to in-house testing or similar, it’s always important to find out or request how the testing fits into the widely-accepted EN standards. Safetell’s wide range of solutions are always fully-tested to the requirements of your security strategy, allowing for specialised products to specially constructed to match your exacting needs, as specified by a security auditor.
