Security for your windows and doors.

 The Part Q document issued by building regulations states that, from October 2015, windows and doors which are manufactured for new build homes, need to meet strict security requirements to provide reasonable provision to resist unauthorised access.

This regulation applies to new build homes and dwellings constructed through a change of use i.e. a barn conversion.

It affects any window or door that is easily accessible from the ground or roof:
          ‘A window or doorway ,any part of which is within 2m vertically of an accessible level surface such as the ground or
 basement level, or an access balcony, or A window within 2m vertically of a flat or sloping roof (with a pitch of less than 30°)

that is within 3.5m of ground level.’

 ( 2017)

All of our flush casement windows and bespoke door sets are manufactured to pass Part Q and full certification will be provided where appropriate. If you have any questions or require further advice on meeting Part Q for your new build property, or wish to enhance the security of your existing home, please give us a call on 01562 631281 or click below to read the document in full.
