Guide to Accreditations

The accreditations our company and our doors have achieved and how they give peace of mind to owners of each and every Rockdoor composite door.

Accreditations are what makes your door complete

When it comes to composite door manufacturing, there are a number of production guidelines to comply with. Whether that be for UK building regulations, or to display the security testing, each of our accreditations is unique to a specifically tested element of the door.

From the British Standards Institution (BSI) to Secured by Design (SBD), there are several certifications we have at Rockdoor, with some being industry firsts too!

In this short guide we are going to break down some of the main accreditations we have received at Rockdoor, why we have received them and what that means to you as a homeowner.

View the Rockdoor range of composite doors

The Rockdoor range of composite doors comes in 30 composite door styles, available in 13 different door colours. So no matter if you’re looking for new front doors, back doors or even double doors, French doors or stable doors. There’s a wide range of Rockdoor composite doors available to compliment the look and style of your home.

PAS24 – Keeps you safe

PAS24, which stands for Product Assessment Specification, sets testing standards in order to measure the effectiveness and the overall security performance of all composite doors, including our Rockdoors. These standards are not only regularly updated, but they are also accepted as the absolute minimum of door and window security for most homes.

With burglaries on the rise year-on-year in the UK, there has never been a more fitting time to know you’re investing in a product that is certified by the British Standards Institution (BSI).

Although PAS24 is only a legal requirement for new build properties, if you’re living in a house more than 10 years old or unless your door has been recently updated, it’s unlikely that your entrance door will be PAS24 accredited. All our Rockdoors come with this accreditation as standard, leaving you undoubtedly protected with fantastic security performance.

If you are looking to buy any composite door, you should always check that your new door comes with the PAS24 accreditation as standard – if not, you could be at greater risk of someone breaking in and entering into your home!

Secured By Design –  Keeps intruders out

This official police-backed security initiative was created in the late 1980’s to counteract the high levels of burglaries. And we’re so proud that Rockdoor were the first-ever composite door manufacturer to achieve the Secured by Design accreditation for our double doors – something we are still so very proud of today.

One of our main accreditations, Secured by Design was designed to combat the past standards of windows and doors made after the social housing boom, where homes were built and installed as cost-efficiently as possible, without much thought to security and thermal efficiency. Design flaws allowed intruders to gain access quickly and easily through the glazing on a number of products, and slip in and out again without being heard!

Nearly all of our Rockdoors can be manufactured to Secured by Design specification, which includes additional security measures to our already incredibly secure range of composite doors.

This includes – wire mesh reinforcing, 6.8mm laminated backing glass and any letterplates to be TS008 accredited, a special type of design approved in Part Q of UK building regulations that prevents burglars ‘fishing’ through letterplates.

Build Check – Proves authenticity

Another one of our accreditations is the Build Check, which is a BFRC (British Fenestration Rating Council) approved independent testing agency who carry out energy rating tests on a number of products, including our Rockdoors.

These energy rating tests are what give your Rockdoor’s energy performance some authenticity and checks that the ratings we give our products are accurate.

The independent testing agency perform multiple tests on various performance indicators of our doors, including the DSER (Doorset Energy Rating), U-values, water tightness and weather testing! All to make sure that what we say you’re getting with a Rockdoor is what you’re actually getting.

It is no surprise that our Rockdoors are continually passing these tests with flying colours, as we continually strive to improve our products to be better than just the ‘standard’, giving you and your family full confidence in our fantastic range of entrance doors.
