Standards and legislation surrounding windows and doors are constantly evolving, and Yale understands the importance of complying with the very latest developments.

As a result, the team is on hand to offer their expert advice to ensure you are manufacturing and installing compliant products.

One such standard that has recently been revised is PAS24:2016. The updated door standard now stipulates that any external doors to be fitted with a letterplate must meet the new criteria set out in TS008.

In order to meet the TS008 testing requirements, the letterplate must eliminate the risk of a potential burglar gaining access by means of physical force or through ‘fishing’ and unlocking of the door through the letterplate aperture.

Notably, this is being enforced by Police approved scheme, Secured by Design, who are making it compulsory for all OEM license holders to meet the revised PAS24:2016 standard. This will drive demand for high end letterplate solutions and create an increased awareness of the TS008 standard across the industry.

PAS 24 is a primary reference in the Building Regulation’s Approved Document Q, which relates to security in residential properties. Changes to the latest specification include more robust, stringent requirements for letterplates and a wider scope that increases the range of security doorsets.

Paul Atkinson, Sales and Commercial Director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, said, “Security standards are continually revisited and rewritten to keep up with the new and sophisticated ways burglars are employing to break into our homes. We understand that this can be confusing for our customers, so we’re on hand to offer insight and advice to ensure they’re providing compliant products to homeowners.

“Not only can we help bring you up to speed with the latest revisions for TS008, we can also provide information and advice on a range of other industry standards and schemes including Approved Document Q, TS007 and Secured by Design.”

Yale offers expert advice on safeguarding residents and properties with its updated RIBA accredited CPD seminar - ‘Specifying Windows and Doors Safety, Security, Means of Escape and Best Value’ .
