Pas 24 Certified ST4-600 Lift & Slide

Following extensive research & development and independent testing, we are delighted to announce that our high performance ST4-600 Lift & Slide door system has recently been certified by UL International for enhanced security performance requirements, in accordance with PAS 24:2016.

PAS 24: 2016 provides a method for testing and assessing the enhanced security performance requirements of external doors and windows. It is recognised by Secured by Design (SBD) and provides an assurance to manufacturers and their customers that the door sets can withstand a series of measured manual and mechanical tests that simulate common methods of forced entry.

Pas 24:2016 – Test Procedure

1. Security hardware & cylinder test – Attempts were made from the external face to operate, release and disengage the system hardware in order to gain entry through the sample.
No entry was gained during the attack time, and as such the product has passed this part of the test.

2. Manual check test – Attempts were made from the external face to gain entry through the sample by applying load combinations not covered by the standard loading cases for the mechanical loading test. The overall attack time was limited to 15 minutes with no single attack technique being used for more than 3 minutes and no single location being attacked for more than 6 minutes.
No entry was gained during this test.

3. Infill – Mechanical test – A series of loads were applied to the external face of the infill. A perpendicular-to-plane load of 2.0kN was applied and held for 8-12 seconds at each corner of the infill.
No entry was gained during this test.

4. Manipulation test Attempts were made from the external face to operate, release and disengage the system hardware in order to gain entry through the sample. Two paint scrapers were used in an attempt to manipulate the door at the locking points, opening corner, roller and the continuous interlock for three minutes each.
No entry was gained during the test.

5. Manual cutting test Attempts were made from the external face to cut an aperture in the infill or fabric of the door leaf in order to gain access using specific tools. Two 3 minutes tests were carried out; one in Zone 1 and one in Zone 2.
No entry was gained during this test.

6. Mechanical loading test – A series of 14 different loads (max load of 4.5 kN) were applied to the internal face of the sample.
All 14 loads passed.

7. Soft body impact test – Attempts were made from the external face to remove gaskets and beading in order to gain access to and remove the infill using tools.
No entry was gained during this test.

8. Infill – Manual test – The test sample was subject to soft body impacts on the external face. Each of the locations was subject to 3 impacts from a drop height of 800mm.
No damage was observed.

9. Hard body impact test – The test sample was subject to hard body impacts on the external face. Each of the impact locations was subject to 3 impacts from a drop height of 165 mm and the result compared with the relevant entry definition.
No entry was gained during this test.
