Commercial Multipoint Lock Meets PAS24 In Doorset

For the first time, Adams Rite, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, has successfully tested its commercial multipoint lock range within an aluminium doorset to the PAS24 standard.

Working together with Kaye Building Systems, Sentinel M was integrated within the thermal doorset, offering three points of trusted locking, whilst still allowing for quick and easy egress due to its unique orbital latch design.

The rigorous testing process, which took place in the ASSA ABLOY UKAS accredited test lab, provided the benchmarks to show the doorset offers ‘Enhanced Security’, and therefore has the capability to withstand sustained usage within a variety of environments, including education, commercial and retail.

Having undergone timed manual attacking methods, hard and soft body impact tests, and static load testing up to 4500N the doorset was successfully tested to PAS24.

Derek Hodgson, General Manager at Kaye Building Systems, said: 
“We have manufactured this doorset in line with the changes to Part L, due to come into force in April. This particular doorset is proven to have a low rate of heat loss through the material, ensuring the door is energy efficient, inkeeping with the Building Regulations relating to the Conservation of Fuel and Power.

“As the new doorset will be installed in commercial buildings, we needed to ensure the hardware we fitted would be resistant to the latest methods of attack. We recognised the robust qualities of Sentinel M and are delighted that we now offer the first doorset to incorporate this product, so it will protect the occupants and assets in a range of commercial projects.”

Tim Almond, Business Development Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions. Tim said: 
“Sentinel M provided the level of security needed for the doorset to be successfully tested to PAS24, it also allows for quick and easy access, perfect for use in public spaces, such as office blocks.

“This is the first time we have collaborated with Kaye Building Systems to achieve a tested product and due to the success of this project we are planning additional testing with them.”
