What is PAS24? What does it test for?
PAS 24 is a set of tests designed to assess the security of doors and windows against the effects of an opportunistic burglar. The tests involved consider the size of tool used and the time it would take to be noticed. To comply with current building regulations all new builds require doors and windows to have test evidence showing they have passed the security aspects of PAS 24.
This means that any company wanting to put their products into a new building must have passed the test first. At Deanta, we have not only tested our doorsets to PAS 24: 2016 but also to BS6375 parts 2 and 3 which involve testing the performance, operation, and strength of the doorset to offer further reassurance to the end user.
PAS 24 doorsets are specifically designed for internal settings, such as apartments, student accommodation and assisted living. These entrance doorsets must be within a heated corridor and cannot be used as an external doorset.
