Lorraine Balch of BSI visited the Veka stand to present Veka’s head of product management Steve Bakewell with certification for successful Invisifold testing to PAS 24 (Enhanced Security Requirements for Doorsets and Windows) and BS 6375 (Performance of Windows and Doors).
The company recently completed a test schedule for slide and fold doors fitted with the greenteQ Invisifold hardware system and VBH’s ‘PAS 24’ locking specification that includes the Yale Mantis door lock, greenteQ Alpha 2-Star security door handle and greenteQ Q-Star 1-Star profile cylinder.
Testing was carried out at BSI on the Veka Matrix 70, WHS Halo System 10 and WHS Halo Rustique profile suites.
VBH Systems sales manager Rob Norman said: “Veka and WHS have really seen the benefit of the Invisifold slide and fold system and were fully committed to going to test with us. This certification is in addition to the recent work we have done together to get a wide range of VBH hardware tested and accredited to BSI requirements. The team at Veka and WHS really sees the importance of providing their customers with a range of Document Q compliant products.
“To be able to receive the certification from BSI at the FIT Show is a real bonus for us all.”
VBH also reported that its third visit to FIT Show was the best yet in terms of product launches, visitor numbers and leads.
The company focused almost entirely on products from its ever expanding greenteQ range which was reflected in the design and branding of the stand.
Peter Rowlands, MD of VBH (GB), said: “Overall we felt the show was a big success for the industry and we are proud to have been part of it. As a mark of our confidence in the future and new products in our pipeline, we’re going bigger in 2019 and have reserved a stand 75% larger than this year’s.”
