All of our composite doors undergo an extensive testing process to ensure they meet the Secured by Design standards, allowing you to enjoy the peace of mind that comes with exceptional craftsmanship.
Police Preferred Standards
Secured by Design (SBD) is the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of ‘designing out crime’. The Endurance® door range has been designed, tested and achieved the standard when combined with laminated glass.
Our collection of composite doors has been designed, tested and assessed to ensure they meet SBD requirements. This means that they have been tested to PAS 24 2016 and have shown complete compliance. We understand the importance of feeling safe in your home, which is why we only offer you the most secured designs.
Solid and secure
Our Secured by Design composite doors offer a standard of protection that ensures the property they are installed into are 75% less likely to be burgled, showing a reduction of 25% in criminal damage. This shows that they will prove to be an invaluable addition to any property, ensuring your home, your family and you stay safe.
Crime is often cited as a stand out reason for homeowners to move property, so it’s important that you get a door design that protects you from potential intruders. The Secured by Design scheme has been put in place as an initiative to ‘design out crime’, responding to modern statistics and techniques to ensure cutting-edge protection.
Hinges and glass
The hinges that we offer with our composite doors are designed to meet the requirements of PAS 24:2016 as part of a compliant door system and BS 6375. We also ensure the security of the pin is achieved by a concealed grub screw. This prevents unauthorised access by lifting off an outward opening composite door.
All Endurance doors are glazed with 4mm toughened safety glass, either double or triple glazed. This glazing design meets BSEN1279 standards for complete door protection. All sealed units are secured using a cassette glazing system that has been independently tested and approved to the PAS 23/24 standards.
ABS ULTIMATE LOCKING CYLINDER
The ABS Ultimate Locking Cylinder lock has been designed with modern security in mind, and offers contemporary standards of performance and design. This intelligent lock has a system that responds to attack and creates a robust barrier to protect your home. You’ll be able to enjoy the complete peace of mind that comes with an SBD approved design.
Solid To The Core
Our doors are renowned for their strength and security, our 48mm thick cross-bonded veneered laminated solid timber core delivers unrivalled strength and dimensional stability and is a natural choice for high security, providing our homeowners peace of mind.
They comprise an intelligently designed solid timber core, made up of 17 engineered timber laminates. It is this feature that makes our composite doors the most secure on the market, utilising the qualities of Kerto (a laminated veneered lumber) to offer a consistent standard of robustness and rigidity.
OUTCLASSING THE REST
Many composite doors on the market utilise a traditional ‘stile and rail’ internal subframe, which offers inferior performance when compared to the our solid LVL core. This is important to note when you’re looking for a new door for your home.
Stile and rail sub-frames are usually filled with either a PU foam core, or a mix-species timber core. This notably reduces the inherent strength of the door, and can even result in some doors bowing due to the lack of structural integrity.
