SBD-compliant aluminium windows and doors offer optimum security

  • 24 Jul 2015

In 2014, the Government announced the October 2015 timeframe to deliver a simplified system for setting standards in the design and construction of new homes.

SBD-accredited glazing products

Reynaers at Home’s ranges of window, door and sliding doors systems have achieved the desirable Secured by Design ’Police Preferred Specification’, ensuring that these systems fall within the requirements of the British Standard Publication PAS 24:2012.

Reynaers’ CS 86-HI, for example, is a multi-chamber system for windows and doors that combines aesthetic design, optimal stability and high thermal comfort.

Due to the insulating skeleton strips, CS 86-HI+ achieves Uf-values down to 1.0 W/m²K, making this a highly energy efficient system. Flexible expansion strips in the door vents ensure stability in all conditions.

The system provides inside opening windows and inside and outside opening flush doors (up to 3 meters). CS 86-HI doors offer different types of floor connections to meet acoustic, thermal and water requirements.

Both doors and windows within the CS 86 range have been accredited so homeowners can be safe in the knowledge that Reynaers at Home’s architectural glazing products not only offer beautiful designs, but also top security.

Technical Director at Reynaers John McComb said: “The government has given security of new homes serious consideration within building regulations, with the publication of Approved Document Q.

“Our products have been specifically designed to offer an extremely high level of security for homeowners. These systems enable door and window manufacturers to fabricate products that can be certified to PAS24:2012. This now exceeds the requirements of Approved Document Q and meets the Secured by Design requirements.

“Our hugely experienced product development team go to great lengths to ensure that our products meet and exceed the latest standards.”

Richard Childs, Managing Director at Secured by Design, said: “Independent research shows that the principles of Secured by Design have been proven to achieve a reduction of crime risk by up to 75%. Reynaers has shown a strong commitment to architects by getting these systems tested and certificated.”
