Mumford & Wood Conservation sliding sash windows are now SBD certificated to meet Approved Document Q – Security.
The windows have additional security features that meet the requirements of Document Q Building Regulations, for the new build housing sector.
These windows and doors join a certificated line up in the Conservation collection which includes SBD certificated casement windows, French doorsets, bi-folding and entrance doors.
The security standard demanded by Building Regulations, to which products are tested, is known as PAS24 but prior to this all products must be tested and rated for weather and air tightness to meet BS6375 (Parts 1 & 2).
Conservation products are manufactured from engineered Siberian Larch wood components that provide ultimate levels of strength and stability.
Frank Buckley, managing director, Mumford & Wood commented:“To the untrained eye the Conservation sash window looks no different to its predecessor, so much so that even burglars won’t see this until they have struggled with the security features and, of course, timber offers better strength to weight ratios than any other frame material.
“High levels of thermal, acoustic and air tightness come as standard and our products surpass the requirements of Part L Building Regulations.”
