Independent UKAS accredited testing laboratory and certification body Wintech Testing & Certification, is delighted to announce that following an update on September 12th, it became the first accredited laboratory to test to PAS 24:2016.
Technical Director Mike Wass explains more: “PAS 24:2016 is the latest version of the test methods and acceptance criteria for the enhanced security performance of windows and doorsets intended to resist attacks normally associated with a casual or opportunistic burglar. It is one option specified for compliance with Secured by Design requirements and product certification schemes such as the WinMark. As with all Standard updates, PAS 24:2016 introduces a range of changes to reflect updates in market requirements and legislation.
“Companies will need to test windows and doorsets to PAS 24:2016 at a UKAS Accredited Test Laboratory to ensure ongoing compliance. We’re delighted that Wintech is the first laboratory to gain UKAS Accreditation to carry out this test and are currently taking bookings for those looking to meet the latest requirements. Ongoing investment has seen us increase our number of test rigs with the capability to test windows and doorsets up to a height of 3.2m and a width of 3.5m, meaning we can test a vast range of products available on the market.”
