In response to a heightened demand for security, Schueco UK has reported a significant increase in the number of its sliding door systems that meet PAS 24 security standards.
PAS 24 is a police-preferred alternative to the EN 1627 security standard. Whilst the latter covers primarily physical attack methods, the PAS 24 tests adopt the form of manual attacks with a set range of tools.
PAS 24-approved locking cylinders must contain anti-bump and anti-drill features, which can withstand the test’s numerous mechanical bi-directional loadings.
Hard and soft body impact tests are also carried out to verify the strength of aluminium frames, hardware and jointing methods. The standard dictates the use of at least one sheet of P1A glass in all glazed doors.
Since the recent introduction of Building Regulation AD Q, Schueco has aimed to achieve PAS 24 certification for its sliding door systems. This responds to a continuing demand for improved security.
Schueco’s ASS 70.HI lift/slide double track, bi-parting and triple track doors have qualified for the police-approved standard; its slide-only versions have also achieved certification. Meanwhile, Schueco ASS 70 FD and ASS 80 FD.HI sliding/folding doors have been successfully tested.
