Security test passed

Universal Trade Frames’ Flush Casement Window has achieved the PAS 24:2016 accreditation, and has passed Parts 1 and 2 of BS 6375 which cover weather tightness and operation and strength.

The versions with night vent locking and dummy vents also achieved the same results.

Universal Trade Frames’ managing director Brian Kruger said: “The false sash is typically the weakest part of a flush casement when it comes to security and weathering, so it’s usual to rely on the cascade testing method and assume accreditation without testing.

“Universal’s Spectus Flush Casement Window is different and we were so confident in its abilities we did not hesitate to send it for testing. We are delighted to have been proved right and we believe we have one of the only flush casement windows in the industry that has fully accredited PAS 24 2016 flush casement dummy vent certification.”
