Following the earlier Secured by Design Accreditation to our range of doorsets, we were aware that many New Build Housing Developments wished to move away from the traditional “Portcullis” door style of Main Entrances and the generally used medium of polycarbonate to deter intruders. As the current SbD recommeded Standard for Communal Entrances – STS202 BR2 -involves a concerted and robust physical attack on the glazing using a selection of handtools, such as hammers and screwdrivers the challenge was to provide a cost effective solution to meet both the Designers requirements (maximum glass) and Crime Prevention Officer’s considerations (minimum glass). NEOS Protect Ltd therefore, using their experience in high security projects, provided three test samples of “all glass” options – all three successfully achieved STS202 BR2 Burglary Resistance Rating. The result is that NEOS Protect Ltd can provide full SbD compliant Entrance Doors and Screens with full height glazing (with or without midrails) to meet both Designer’s and CPO’s commitments.
Further Tests are planned for later this year to push forward our development of physcial security doorsets and glazed screens to meet Market demands.
