Secured by Design Spirit doors


With years of experience and a continuous testing programme JCK Joinery produce for Spirit doors one of the most extensive ranges in timber Secured by Design doorsets on the market.

Secured by Design (SBD) doorsets have been successfully tested to PAS24:2012 (security) and PAS23 (General fitness for purpose).

The principle of SBD is to test the whole doorset which is made up of the following components:

  • Door
  • Frame
  • Lock & cylinder
  • Handle
  • Hinges
  • Glazing (if used)

The rigorous testing is carried out on all these areas, if access is gained in a set amount of time then the doorset fails and cannot be accredited with Secure by Design certification PAS24:2012.

Further tests for fitness for purpose are carried out on all weather seals, glazing, hinges, handle and resistance to impact.
