With pass after pass DOORCO has security covered

DOORCO Cert

With the October deadline for Part Q compliance upon us, fast growing composite door manufacturer DOORCO is pleased to state that it has passed the latest round of security testing at BM TRADA with flying colours.

Whilst the company is naturally delighted with the results, they came as no real surprise, as DOORCO has been ready for the amended standard for some time, following an investment programme more than two years ago which focused on the production of a new breed of composite door. This new door design provides ultimate flexibility for the customer as it enables multiple door styles to be created from one design, but crucially, it also incorporates improved security features which stand up to the new standards.

Under the revised Part Q, either the PAS24:12 standard or Secured by Design accreditation covering the enhanced security of windows and doors becomes mandatory for anyone working on dwellings which are considered new build or conversion projects. Doors and windows must be able to resist physical attack by a casual or opportunist burglar in order to meet these standards. To do this they must be both robust and be fitted with appropriate hardware, which is true of the DOORCO range.

Dan Sullivan, Managing Director at DOORCO explains: “At DOORCO we pride ourselves on being at the forefront of product quality and innovation, and the DOORCO door range, including fire doors, is one of the few foam filled composite door ranges which can pass key/key and key/thumb tests. It has done so numerous times at countless test centres, without fail. Our doors boast increased resistance to forced entry and violent attacks, and a more substantial feel with thicker, modified skins as standard across all products so their performance has been future proofed against anticipated standards. Customers tell us that this has really paid off for them as they are assured they are buying the best and most cost effective door available and as we continue to grow, more and more people are seeing the benefit of placing their business with DOORCO.”

Website

Fast growing composite door manufacturer DOORCO has now launched its eagerly awaited new website and upgraded its linked online ordering system. The combined website and ordering system provides the company’s resellers with an important resource through which to increase sales. It is a further indication of the company’s commitment to continually improving customer service.

Creating the new website was a lengthy process, due to DOORCO’s continuous expansion of its product range with new styles and choices which were added throughout the website design process. The end result however is an exceptionally clear, bright and modern site and its simplicity encourage the user to delve deeper and explore more options. The News and Build Check Calculator are two other site facilities designed to provide support for DOORCO customers.

The site is designed to provide a simple and effective ordering system for the company’s Prepped Slab trade customers whilst also providing them with a tool that helps to steer their homeowner customers through the design and selection process. Every one of DOORCO’s door ranges is featured using high quality professional images, together with style and colour options. The images used are also available for DOORCO customers to use in their own marketing.

“DOORCO nominated The Consultancy as our website partners and we are delighted with the first version produced by their team,” said DOORCO’s Dan Sullivan. “There are a lot more ideas and development points that the Consultancy has suggested, so there will be a programme of advancement of the site over the next few months with their help.

“Our customers have told us that our ordering system is one of the best on the market,” added Dan,” so the emphasis was on improvement using the advice that they gave to us, such as fewer clicks to complete the order. Now every one of our customers places their orders with us this way and the need for manual forms has all but vanished.”
