HOPPE (UK) Ltd becomes first manufacturer certified by Element under new STS217 scheme

Element Materials Technology (Element), which acquired Exova Group Limited (Exova) last year to create one, world-class global testing services partner, has announced that HOPPE (UK) Ltd is the first manufacturer to become certified under its newly introduced STS217 certification scheme for TS007 lever handles.

The STS217 certification scheme, which tests security handles for burglar resistance, is a recent addition to the testing offering at Element’s supersite in Wednesbury.

The process involves a manual attack test, designed to combat cylinder snapping – one of the quickest and most popular methods of breaking into doors and windows. The successful testing will certify HOPPE (UK)’s handles as a secure product.

John Prosser, marketing services for product range and assortment at HOPPE (UK), said:
“HOPPE (UK) is committed to ensuring its products are tested to the highest standards. The STS217 certification scheme is a fantastic way to prove to our customers that our products won’t be compromised by common methods of attack used by opportunist burglars.
“As TS007 is one of the only standards to cover the retrofit market, it also allows us to offer our customers a more flexible approach to retrofitting security hardware without having to worry about performance.”

Rob Veitch, EVP Fire & Building Products at Element, comments:
“Element is leading the way in door and window testing in the UK and has some of the foremost expertise in the industry. We are committed to offering our clients a complete range of testing services approved to the very highest levels of excellence.

“Now that HOPPE (UK) Ltd has become certified under the scheme, buyers can have confidence that its handles have gone through a rigorous testing process, are of the best quality and functionality and, most importantly, are burglar resistant.”

Element provides security testing of external doors and windows, to PAS24 and European burglary resistance standards. The expert teams provide assessments of security performance based on existing test evidence and agreed principles.
