What A Pas!

December 30th 2012

Innovative composite door manufacturer, Solidor, recently went testing for the renewal of their PAS23/24 certification with highly impressive results, thanks to the structure of the door slab and a new locking system.

Solidor have recently signed an exclusive deal with Avantis International for their new door lock, which they believe provides the largest and strongest hook and bolt system in the door sector. Like many features from Solidor, this new locking mechanism carries the industry’s first 25mm triangulated dead bolt, which makes for greater compression on a closed door. Another key feature is the deadlock, which also operates from the action of lifting the handle, rather than a key turn.

The Avantis lock easily passed PAS 24 for security which requires that the lock can sustain a manual attack for three minutes. In fact after two men had attacked the door for five minutes, they gave up to test the DorPro hinge, which also comfortably exceeded the required specification.

According to the testing house at Mila it was ‘the strongest composite door yet tested’ thanks to the hardware and the fact that the Solidor slab is a solid timber core, rather than a foam filled GRP door. Solidor can also boast that not only are their doors some of the most secure in the industry, they are also some of the most innovative, thanks to 14 internal and external colour options and a number of hardware options.

Gareth Mobley, managing director of Solidor Group comments: “The testing process for PAS 23/24 clearly demonstrated the quality of our door and also the Avantis lock. We’ve also got further new developments on the way to help our customers stand out from the standard composite door offerings on the market.”
