Security Specifications

The specifications listed here are the minumum baseline standard specifications which are usually required when museums borrow objects under the Government Indemnity Scheme, however they are useful to all museums who are specifying security equipment and are looking for a baseline standard. They are roughly the equivalent of SR4 on the scale of security standards in Guide to Physical Security Standards for Buildings from Red Book Live, a reference for specifiers, manufacturers designers and users of fire and security products.

The Guide to Physical Security Standards for Buildings maps a range of physical security standards against a scale of risk ranging from low risk in domestic applications to high risk in commercial and governement applications. When specifying for physical security measures you can use this guide as a general indication of the standards you might require in commercial products. Security products, their specifications and suppliers are listed on Red Book Live.
