Fast growing composite door manufacturer, DOORCO, has been advising customers for some time that it was ready well ahead of the deadline for amends to Approved Document Q, and as further reassurance, the company is now pleased to share video footage which shows its door passing the PAS 24 cut test.
DOORCO has long been prepared for the new and more rigid security standards, thanks to investment more than two years ago in the production of a new breed of composite doors – one of which (the Combi door) even allows multiple door styles to be created from one design. Crucially, this new breed incorporates significantly improved security features across the board which stand up to the new regulations, and stock was adjusted accordingly at the time to ensure that customers now receive the higher security door as standard.
Dan Sullivan, Managing Director at DOORCO explains: “At DOORCO we not only pride ourselves on leading the way in product quality and innovation, but also customer service, and DOORCO customers know that we were prepared well in advance of October 1st. As additional reassurance – and in the name of openness and transparency – we now have the video evidence to prove it.
“The cut through test was performed as part of the latest round of security testing at BM TRADA, all of which we passed with flying colours. You can see for yourself that our door withstood the attack for the three minute duration. With increased resistance to forced entry, and thicker, modified skins as standard across all products, the performance of DOORCO doors has been future proofed against anticipated standards, so our customers can continue to rely on the high levels of quality they have come to expect from us.”
