DOCQ&PAS24 Jumping the Q »»WITH THE 1ST OCTOBER DEADLINE looming, fabricators who have not yet found a PAS024 solution may be concerned that they’ll be excluded from residential new build business, and some trade fabricators may only just be realising how much of their product ends up in new homes, but they needn’t worry as Alan Parker, MD Winlock Security, explains here to Clearview… “Over the past 12 months, at Winlock Security in conjunction with our key partners; GU, Kenrick, Yale and Imperial, we have independently tested many of the UK’s most popular PVC and composite systems to ensure they meet the new criteria. Our testing programme covers outward opening casements, single doors, French doors, composite doors and flush sash windows including profiles from Veka/ Halo, Liniar, Deceuninck, Synseal, Eurocell, Swish and the new Profile 22 Optima system. “What’s more, we are willing and able to pass this accreditation directly onto our customers, without additional cost and with immediate effect, allowing fabricators to continue to serve the new build market without further investment or delay. “Our exciting new products have been included in this test programme to ensure they meet the latest security standard (PAS024). These include the innovative patented Deltalock system; the first locking system which enables Flush Sash windows to be held in the “night vent” position without compromising the external gasket, security or design, and the discrete and damage-proof Lifetime Concealed Range, which has been cleverly designed to improve the performance and look of door furniture by eliminating handle corrosion and sagging, whilst concealing all visible handle fixings. “We anticipated that many trade fabricators couldn’t justify the cost of having their own Document Q certification but it was an investment that made total sense to us. We can now make available to our customers high quality, cost effective PAS024 solutions across a broad range of popular profile systems putting Email: e de EE liv er y Timber or uPVC na tio nw id FR them ahead of their competitors and for some, back in business,” concludes Alan. Winlock Security Ltd was established in 1987 in Telford, Shropshire and is the only remaining volume manufacturer of window handles in the UK.
