Stay Secured by Design With CENSolutions

CENSolutions celebrates 10 years in business this year, and while they are widely recognised as the leading consultancy and test facility for the window, door and glazing industries, they have no desire to rest on their laurels. Instead the company is continuously extending its scope. One of the things they are increasingly asked about is the recently amended PAS24:12 regulations and how companies can comply in order to keep selling Secured by Design.

Wayne Rogerson, Joint Managing Director explains: “PAS24:12 came into effect in September 2013, so if you wish to continue selling Secured by Design to the consumer, you should already be up to speed. The standard calls for all glazed doors and windows which have a non-locking handle to have at least one leaf of glass that achieves a P1A classification. Our research has found that this glass needs to be at least 6.8mm laminated. With regards to P1A, this is a classification within EN 356:200 for a drop height of 1500mm. In fairness 6.8mm laminated achieves P2A, which is a drop height of 3000mm, sadly there is no classification for 6.4mm laminated: It is classed as a safety glass.

“There was a great deal of confusion since the changes were announced and judging by the enquiries we have experienced, this is still the case nine months later. We appreciate that changing standards can be confusing, but compliance will make the difference between being able to use Secured by Design in your marketing or not. By checking that your supply chain is offering 6.8mm laminated glass as standard, you can make sure that you are covered.”

As a supplier, Decorative Door Products by RegaLead was one of the first to take advantage of CENSolutions’ expertise to ensure their customers were prepared for the changes in good time for the deadline. Guy Hubble, Joint Managing Director explains: “As a specialist in a niche sector of the market we strive to lead the way in advancing specification within it. We have been offering 6.8mm as standard on laminates certified to P1A since August last year. As an integral part of the supply chain, it’s important to us to understand the changing legislation to ensure the correct specification of units to our customers. CENSolutions has played a key role, providing invaluable advice and guidance at every step.”
