Adams Rite and Kestrel Aluminium Systems partner to reduce burglary
Adams Rite, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, a UK division of ASSA ABLOY, the global leader in door opening solutions is working with Kestrel Aluminium Systems to secure properties with doorsets tested to the important UK security standard PAS24.
According to The Crime Prevention Website, enhanced secure doors and "their performance in terms of their contribution to reducing burglary has been quite breathtaking." PAS24 is supported by Secured by Design on behalf of the UK Police Service.
Kestrel Aluminum Systems are supplying a wide range of properties including dwellings and commercial properties, with the thermally efficient aluminium single and double doorsets that have been proven to successfully resist all PAS24 attacks.
The doorsets offer 'enhanced security' and incorporate Adams Rite's innovative Sentinel M commercial multi-point locks, which includes the new 3 star security rated cylinder platform.
Steven Shute, Managing Director at Kestrel Aluminium Systems, said: "Working with Adams Rite has allowed us to use ASSA ABLOY's UKAS accredited test lab to ensure our components resisted all PAS24 attacks, without failure or opening.
"The testing included timed manual attack methods, hard and soft body impact tests, and mechanical load testing of 4500N, providing us with the confidence that our doorsets will not only conserve heat, but will also adequately protect the occupants and assets in a range of projects."
Tim Almond, OEM Commercial Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: "We are delighted to have such a longstanding working relationship with Kestrel Aluminum Systems, which enables us to help deliver the high level of security required across a number of buildings in order to reduce burglary.
"Sentinel M is a versatile solution that can be used in a variety of environments including hospitals, leisure facilities and commercial projects."
