SHADPAS SECURITY DOORS

ShadPAS doors have been successfully tested to PAS 24 can be used to meet the security requirements of Building Regulations Approved Document Q Security – Dwellings: Requirement Q1: Unauthorised access.

  • Security testing has been carried out on conventionally installed and operable doors.
  • Can also be supplied with up to 60 minutes fire resistance and with acoustic performance.
  • Available as door leaves only or as doorsets.
  • The doors are timber-based and can be matched to other doors in a scheme.
  • Can be supplied with PVC laminate facings for greater impact resistance.
  • Doors achieve high levels of mechanical performance, strength and dimensional stability.

High density solid chipboard core giving consistent performance and durability without subfacings or internal framing. Doors and frames are purpose-made, with considerable freedom to choose from a wide range of finishes.

Frame design, profiles and dimensions can be varied to suit specifiers’ requirements, subject to any performance limitations. Frames must be rebated; planted stops are not possible.

Shadbolt can also supply assembled and braced subframes with all doors if required.

These are accurately made in factory conditions, can be incorporated in the computerised door schedule at an early stage, and provide sufficient tolerances to enable manufacture of doors to proceed before construction of the structural openings.

ShadSecure PAS 24 doors can be supplied with essential ironmongery which is supported by relevant test evidence to meet the security requirements of PAS 24.

Other acceptable standards to Building Regulations Part Q are:
■ STS 201 Issue 5:2013
■ STS 202 Issue 3:2011 burglary rating 2
■ LPS 2081 Issue 1:2015 security rating B.

The ironmongery supplier should demonstrate compliance with one or more of these standards; contact Shadbolt technical department if more information is required.

ShadPAS doors and doorsets are purpose-made to sizes required. Sizes are validated by independent testing as providing the performance stated.

For more information please contact our technical department.

 

Doors can be fully finished in controlled conditions in our works to ensure high quality. A matched and co-ordinated appearance can generally be achieved for all doors in a building.

The range of finishes is summarised below.

  • Wood veneers with various factory-applied finishes including semi-matt lacquer. Specula high-gloss clear polyester finish.
  • Paintmaster enamel satin lacquer finish in any BS or RAL colour.
  • Patina high-gloss sprayed polyester lacquer finish or Signal semi-matt sprayed polyurethane lacquer finish, both available in any BS, RAL or Dulux Colour Dimensions colour.
  • Laminates: any colours or patterns of plastic laminate from major UK suppliers.
  • High impact PVC laminate facings.

For more information see Veneer Finishes or Laminate and Paint Finishes.

ShadPAS doors have successfully completed a full programme of testing to PAS 24 and PAS 23-1 and achieved a Pass in all aspects; independently certified by a UKAS-accredited certification body. Tests have been carried out on normally installed and operable doors of standard construction.

Building Regulations
By virtue of this testing, ShadPAS doors can be used to meet the security requirements of Approved Document Q Security – Dwellings: Requirement Q1: Unauthorised access.

Building Regulations Part Q states that reasonable provision must be made to prevent unauthorised access; this applies only to new dwellings. For Shadbolt doors the relevant application is where an easily accessible door gives access into a flat from the common parts of a building.

Additional requirements may apply for the size and design of letter plates if fitted, provision of a door viewer, and a door chain or door limiter (or a suitable entry system where, for example, warden emergency access may be needed).

For security purposes Shadbolt are of the view that a door viewer is the most effective means of caller identification.

Door testing and certification
ShadPAS security doors have been successfully tested against the standards shown below. Tests were carried out on normally installed and operable doors.

PAS 23-1 General performance requirements for door assemblies. Single leaf, external door assemblies to dwellings.
Includes tests for: operating forces, resistance to vertical loads, resistance to static torsion, slamming resistance, closure against obstruction, abusive forces on handles, resistance to soft and heavy body impact, resistance to hard body impact, basic security and cyclic operation (opening and closing).
PAS 24 Enhanced security performance requirements for door assemblies. Single and double leaf, hinged external door assemblies to dwellings.
Includes tests for: manual manipulation, manual infill medium removal, mechanical infill medium removal, mechanical loading, manual check, soft body impact, hard body impact.

Fire resistance
ShadPAS doors have been tested to BS 476: Part 22 in a range of configurations, and can provide 30 minutes or 60 minutes fire resistance (FD30 or FD60).
Fire performance is assured by ongoing independent third party certification.

Authoritative assessments can be provided for variations from a tested door design.

Where required, doors can be fitted with seals to resist the passage of smoke at ambient temperature.

Acoustic performance
Security doors can be fitted with suitable acoustic seals to achieve significant sound reduction. For more information see Acoustic doors.

Durability
ShadPAS doors can achieve the Severe duty classification, the highest possible, to EN 1192 Doors – Classification of Strength Requirements and EN 1191 Windows and Doors – Resistance to Repeated Opening and Closing.

The Severe rating enables the doors to be used in the most demanding applications where they are likely to be subjected to frequent use and abuse.

SHADSECURE SECURITY DOORS

Door testing
ShadSecure security doors have been successfully tested against Loss Prevention Standard LPS 1175: Issue 7 Requirements and testing procedures for the LPCB approval and listing of intruder resistant building components, strongpoints, security enclosures and free-standing barriers.

SR2 grade is designed to simulate a determined opportunistic attack by bodily physical force that may involve the creation of noise.
