PROUD SPONSOR OF DOORS & WINDOWS DOORS&WINDOWS Opportunities in Secured by Design contracts » » WHEN SECURED BY DESIGN accreditation is specified in a sliding patio contract, PatioMaster Secure is the answer because it provides a PatioMaster door that meets this most demanding of standards. Secured by Design is the official UK Police flagship initiative that combines the principles of ‘designing out crime’ with physical security. Secured by Design accredited PatioMaster doors have five enhanced security features that mean they can meet the stringent requirements of Secured by Design and provide the peace of mind that’s needed. Interlock bolts lock the sliding panel to the fixed one and ensure the two cannot be forced apart. A full width security head rail runs across the top of the opening panel to prevent it being lifted from the track. A full height security keep rail supports the sliding door at each corner. A PAS24 handle is designed to withstand sustained manual attack and has an enhanced back-plate for even greater security levels. Finally, an anti-bump cylinder prevents the lock cylinder being bumped. PatioMaster is the UK’s favourite patio door and it is value-added features such as the Secured by Design option that demonstrate why. When three is better than two » » SPECTUS WINDOW SYSTEMS HAS stayed at the forefront of the industry with its intelligent, market-facing approach. This is evident in its continuous product progress and ability to work with market trends such as those witnessed in triple glazing. Since the industry debated the triple glazing benefits some three years ago there has been an increasing traction in the concept especially where higher levels of thermal insulation are required which cannot always be achieved with double glazing. The Spectus triple glazing solution offers customers total flexibility and product choice without compromising on style or finish. With three bead options, it’s possible to offer the exact specification or WER requirement needed and all Spectus’ beads work with both bevelled or ovolo shaped profiles. Furthermore, you can even use Georgian bars alongside triple glazing without compromising the aesthetics as the Spectus 36mm bead is perfectly proportioned for added period detail. Demand for triple glazing is still growing and customers should be able to offer it with confidence and without compromising on quality or style. The triple and double-glazing options from Spectus means customers can do just that.
