Hurst gains Q Mark accreditation

Hurst Plastics has added to its impressive string of industry accreditations by gaining independent Q Mark quality assurance certification from BM Trada for its range of composite doors.

The Q Mark certification scheme supports the testing, quality and consistency requirements for doors and windows to achieve Secured by Design approval - the police initiative to reduce crime by incorporating crime prevention measures at the design stage.

A pre-requisite for SBD approval, it ensures that every Hurst composite door meets the requirements of PAS 23 and PAS 24 testing for ‘General’ and ‘Enhanced Security’ performance. The scheme also monitors Hurst’s manufacturing processes and materials to ensure that all of Hurst’s composite doors are of a consistently high standard.

Mark Atkinson, Hurst Plastics’ sales director, says: “We are naturally delighted to be Q Mark certified. It underlines our wholehearted commitment to meet the highest standards within the industry and gives the end user the assurance that our Q-Marked composite doors have demonstrated the required performance levels of a nationally recognised accreditation body.”

The composite door brochure from Hurst Plastics is available in an impressive array of designs, styles and options and includes the new Hurst composite stable door, plus an extended range of fire door options.

Every door in the Hurst composite range is complemented by an attractive range of suited door furniture in white, brass and chrome, which includes door knockers, numerals and letterplates. An optional colour co-ordinated weather bar adds to the visual appeal of the door. The Yale high security handle, which is PAS 24: clause 11 compliant, is fitted as standard on all Hurst composite doors. The door also now comes with a choice of two locking options - a Yale multipoint locking system, whose Kite marked lock cylinder is endorsed by the Master Locksmiths Association and all leading insurance companies, and the new Vectis cylinder free multipoint locking system from ERA.
