PAS24:2016 is a minimum British security standard which tests the resistance of windows and doors to series of attack methods typically used by opportunist burglars to force entry into a property. These stringent tests are carried out by a UKAS accredited third party who assess the products performance to the standard. PAS24:2016 is recognised by Secured by Design which is the UK Police initiative to reduce burglary and crime.
Products have to pass a series of stringent physical tests lasting several minutes to test any potential weakness to attack. Once the door or windows is fixed to a test rig, the tests are completed by expert independent examiners working for an approved third-party who assess the windows capacity to repel forced entry.
