PAS 24:2016 refers to the enhanced security performance requirements for door sets in the UK. PAS 24 is used to test all types of doors to ensure they meet a cylinder and door hardware attack test. Also, our locks and locking mechanism door sets undergo an evaluation against the General Vulnerability Assessment contained in BS 3621 (the standard for thief resistant locks).
PAS 24:2016 - Physical security attack test, including mechanical load testing BS6375-2 and cycle testing of 50,000 cycles EN1191.
CE marking guarantees that access control products are designed, tested and approved according to harmonised standards on health, safety and environmental protection legislation.
EN14846:2008 - Electromechanically operated locks
EN50371:2012 - RT&TTE, Low-power human RF exposure & European EMC, LVD directive
Fire resistance certification
This European Standard is used to determine the fire resistance of doorsets for a pre-determined period of time. Withstanding fire attack means not allowing flames or hot gases to pass. In other words, the doorset maintains its fire integrity.
EN 1634-1:2014 - Fire resistance and smoke control for a minimum of 30 or 60 minutes.
Third-party certification body that assures performance, quality, reliability and traceability of fire protection products. Recognised by regulatory authorities worldwide, it is an internationally respected mark of fire safety and one of the most authoritative in the industry.
Secured by Design
Police approved to reduce levels of crime and improve security within a building. Developments using products and materials that meet Secured by Design Standards are up to 75% less likely to be burgled and show a reduction of 25% in criminal damage.
