Security leap

The Veka UK Group entire range of PVCU window and door products now comply with PAS 24:2016, making it the first BSI Kitemark system supplier of PVCU to do so, the company said.

Accreditation manager Mark Barsby said: “We’ve been in discussions with our forward-thinking customers, BSI, and Secured by Design since last July to ensure Veka and Halo products meet the updated enhanced security standard, PAS 24:2016.

“The standard was published over a year ago and includes a number of changes, particularly related to doors. The previous version – PAS 24:2012 – has now been withdrawn from the BSI website, and while Document Q will continue to reference it for some time, the latest Secured by Design Homes Guide already allows for compliance via the new standard.

“Many Veka and Halo fabricators and installers use data cascaded from The Veka UK Group for Document Q compliance. They will instantly be able to demonstrate to prospective customers how far ‘ahead of the game’ they are.”

The Veka UK Group’s Sales Director, Neil Evans commented: “Being the first systems supplier to achieve PAS 24:2016 across its entire range represents a significant investment for The Group. It contains a number of exciting product enhancements, as well as new products that we will be announcing shortly.”
