Epwin Window Systems has confirmed all its PVC-U window and door systems have achieved PAS24:2022 signalling a commitment to staying at the forefront of industry standards.
Adrian Crutchley, Product Accreditations Manager at Epwin Window Systems, said: “We are delighted to be amongst the first systems companies to be able to confirm that our multiple PVC-U window and door systems have all achieved PAS24:2022 certification. This achievement further demonstrates our commitment to adopting and meeting the latest industry standards to deliver secure and reliable solutions for our customers”.
PAS 24:2022 sets out enhanced security standards for doorsets and windows, indicating the certified products have undergone testing and meet specific criteria for resisting physical attack. The new accreditation, which officially came into effect in September 2022, phasing out the earlier PAS 24:2016 standard, helps specifiers meet Building Regulations and the requirements of the police’s Secured by Design scheme. It applies to all new windows and doorsets as manufactured and prior to installation. The accreditation promotes security and denotes enhanced security performance intended to resist the type of attack normally associated with casual or opportunistic burglars.
The PAS 24:2022 accreditation covers Epwin Window Systems’ entire PVC-U system range which includes the Spectus Elite Window & Door System, Optima Window & Door System, Flush Tilt & Turn Window System, Fully Reversible Window System, Flush Casement Window System, Vertical Sliding Sash Window System and the PatioMaster Inline Sliding Door System.
Epwin Window Systems has a robust track record in delivering outstanding systems that meet or exceed regulatory requirements. As well as the PAS 24:2022 accreditations, the company has the industry’s largest choice of Part L-compliant window and door systems.
Its customers also benefit from support in complying with regulations. Its free thermal efficiency calculator U-Comply N, which is part of its Connect digital platform, provides
reports that are approved by the British Standards Institute and can be used to prove a product’s compliance with Part L of Building Regulations.
Epwin Window Systems has developed a reputation for technical innovation and excellence as an industry leader. In supporting its customers with regulatory changes and being amongst the first to confirm all its PVC-U window and door systems achieve PAS24:2022, it’s continuing to prove its commitment to setting exacting industry standards.
