What is PAS 24:2016
PAS stands for “Product Assessment Specification” and PAS 24:2016 a primary reference in the England and Wales Building Regulations Approved Document Q1. PAS 24: 2016 specifies test methods and acceptance criteria relevant to the enhanced security performance of both doors and windows intended to resist methods of attack experienced or associated with the casual or opportunistic burglar. Everyone appreciates there is not economic standard window or door option that will prevent a determined professional burglar.
The aim of PAS 24 is to set out enhanced security performance requirements for the way doors and windows should be made in the UK. PAS 24 approved door and window products are intended to offer a level of security suitable for dwellings and other buildings exposed to comparable risk.
