As part of an ongoing programme of security testing to PAS 24, leading sustainable building envelope specialist Schueco UK reports an increase in the number of its sliding door systems that meet this police-approved standard.   Newly qualifying systems include Schueco ASS 70.

HI lift/slide double track, bi-parting and triple track doors, as well as the slide-only versions. Schueco ASS 70 FD and ASS 80 FD.HI sliding/folding doors have also been successfully tested.

With the recently introduced Building Regulation AD Q and the continuing demand for improved security, this announcement will be welcome news for both specifiers and fabricators looking to deliver ultimate peace-of-mind to clients.

While in general Schueco tests systems to the EN 1627 security standard – which covers primarily manual attack methods – this regime is supplemented in the UK by testing to PAS 24, which is the police-preferred alternative.

The PAS 24 tests take the form of manual attacks with a prescribed range of tools, together with numerous mechanical bi-directional loadings to replicate attacks on the locking points, hinges etc. Additionally, approved locking cylinders must have features such as anti-bump and anti-drill.

PAS 24 also includes hard and soft body impact tests to prove the strength and integrity of the aluminium frames, jointing methods and hardware, and it mandates the use of at least one sheet of P1A glass, or better, in glazed doors.
