Part Q Building Regulations

If you are in the process of building a new home you will be aware that as from October 2015, Approved Document Q will make it mandatory for windows and doorsets to be manufactured to a design that has been shown by test to meet the security requirements of PAS 24:2012.

By 1st October 2016 all accessible doors and windows fitted into a new build property will have to be proven to be secure by testing.

Here are Sanderson’s Joinery we are able to supply you with wooden ‘A’ Rate High Performance Flush Casement Windows and external doors both of which are Part Q compliant.
