After extensive research and development, VBH launches a bespoke range of PAS24 hardware for Deceuninck’s Heritage Flush Sash Door. Suitable for single or double doors, the new range has been tested at BSI to the PAS24:2016 standard enabling Document Q compliance on new-build projects. The new hardware suite is also covered under the Q-secure security and greenteQ 10-year corrosion guarantees for an all-round robust solution.
Hardware specification for the Heritage Flush Sash Door consists of greenteQ Sigma Flush Door Hinges, a greenteQ Alpha Door Handle, Yale Mantis door lock with a single piece striker and latch lead-in block, and a Yale Platinum 3-star profile cylinder.
The greenteQ hinge is available in five different finishes to complement Deceuninck’s Heritage suite, and is manufactured from heavy duty zinc. It fits into the door rebate leaving the appearance of a traditional 3-knuckle butt hinge on the outside. It also features a concealed security grub screw to prevent removal of the hinge pin when door is closed, and an integral weather seal pad to protect from the elements.
Rob Norman, Systems Sales Manager at VBH says: “The heritage flush sash market is growing strongly, so we wanted to create a PAS24 approved solution that is also covered under our own guarantee so that installers have the tools to sell both great looks and assured security. In fact, we’re so confident of the quality of our products we manufacture and supply, that homeowners registered under the Q-secure guarantee can get up to £3,250 towards associated costs with a break-in, should access be achieved.”
