Leading sustainable building envelope specialist, Schueco UK, has announced that as a system supplier two more of its popular sliding door systems – the Schueco ASS 70.HI lift/slide door and the Schueco ASS 70 FD folding/sliding door – have been awarded Q Mark Product Certification by Exova BM Trada.
Both systems are widely specified right across the UK, being suitable for both commercial projects and the domestic market.
Q Mark Product Certification covers a wide range of characteristics including weather performance, mechanical strength, operating forces, corrosion resistance of fittings and PAS 24 security. In addition, the tests certify the doors’ opening and closing performance over 50,000 operating cycles.
As a further assurance of quality, Schueco partner-fabricators with Q Mark Certification have their quality management system annually audited as well as a door security test to prove the products are being consistently and correctly manufactured. Significantly, Q-Marked companies are eligible to bid for projects covered by the police’s Secured by Design initiative.
This latter scheme has been in operation for ten years and is regarded as having made a major contribution to reducing the number of burglaries. As such, windows and doors that comply with SBD specifications form part of the front line against unlawful entry and can help to reduce household insurance premiums.
