What It Means To You
What's the difference between Part Q and Secured by Design?
Both standards call for windows and doors to be made to meet the requirements of PAS 24. Approved Document Q only requires a test report from a UKAS accredited test house.
< Approved Document Q only requires frames manufactured to a design proven by test to meet the requirements of PAS 24. As you purchase your fabricated frames from MASCO UK Fabrication then we can provide you with a test report if required.
< Doors will require the Challenger+ adjustable rebate hinge and encompass a cylinder guard. For customers using the current HP Flag or Nexus hinge this no longer achieves the required standard
< All glazing will require four of the new security glass clips per pane on windows and doors
< All Document Q windows will be specified with shootbolts, hinge guards and be fully reinforced.
< Approved Document Q bead and glass clip specification is the same as Secured By Design.
