Tradesmith PAS 24 French door

Tradesmith delivers the first PAS 24 low-threshold French door using Halo profile

Tradesmith, a leading South East window, door and conservatory manufacturer and Halo Approved Fabricator has become one of the industry’s first companies to achieve the coveted PAS 24 security standard on a low-threshold French door.

PAS 24 – a UK standard for door and window security performance – is only achievable by submitting products for certification with a UKAS-accredited testing house, and represents a significant and sustained effort from the manufacturer to reach the required levels of protection.

Tradesmith Managing Director, Mark Hutchinson explained: “We’re thrilled that Tradesmith has become the first fabricator to achieve PAS 24 on a low-threshold French door using The VEKA UK Group’s Halo profile.

“The Government’s Document Q guidance – one of a number of documents pertaining to achievement of the 2010 Building Regulations – came into effect at the start of October, and recommends that all buildings be fitted with doorsets and windows designed to meet PAS 24 or similar.

“We presented the completed door for independent assessment ‘off our own bat’, without needing to piggyback on the test results of components that make up the design, and it’s great to be able to display the PAS 24 logo alongside our Secured by Design accreditation – the official Police initiative, aimed at ‘designing out crime’ in physical security measures.”

Besides working closely with Halo – part of The VEKA UK Group – Tradesmith also collaborated with other highly respected suppliers, including Paddock / Yale and Winlock to ensure the door reached the necessary standard.

“What Tradesmith has achieved is no mean feat”, commented Colin Torley, Sales and Marketing Director of The VEKA UK Group. “To achieve PAS 24 certification is a challenge in itself, let alone with a low-threshold French Door that must be able to offer unhindered mobility access as well as the required security credentials.

“It’s great to see Halo profile play such an integral part in this worthy project and I’d like to congratulate Tradesmith on behalf of The VEKA UK Group for this accomplishment.”

Mark added: “This product is a great addition to our TS Collection and will be available to all our trade customers. Anybody interested in finding out more should visit our website: www.tradesmith.co.uk
