Aluminium systems company, Jack Aluminium has achieved a BM TRADA Q-Mark certification under the Enhanced Security Door Scheme for its thermally efficient, Jack Door TD68.
The Q-Marked Jack Door TD68 complies with the testing requirements for Secured by Design (SBD), the police initiative to reduce crime by incorporating crime prevention measures at the design stage.
Jack Door TD68 is engineered for high levels of security and as a result carries the PAS 23 & 24 accreditation. Jack Door is becoming widely specified and the Q-Mark certification means fabricators can now achieve the Police security initiative, Secured by Design as well.
Jack Aluminium has also produced a manufacturer’s manual to give fabricators the assurance that they are consistently producing Jack Door TD68 to the required standards of Q-Mark. Fabricators can then achieve Q-Mark for the Jack Door product through independent verification by a third party certification body.
Jeff Pearson, sales director at Jack Aluminium says: “The demand for Secured by Design doors means fabricators are keen to work with Q-Marked products, so we’re really pleased to support customers by achieving this stringent certificate for the successful Jack Door.
“Many projects now specify a requirement for independent certification from the door manufacturer. Having the Q-Mark will mean customers can achieve this accreditation using the Jack Door TD68 door and allow them to tender for Secured by Design contracts,” adds Jeff.
