Putting Partnership to the Test


Adams Rite, part of ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, has been working with window manufacturer, Total Glass, to develop a doorset specifically designed to meet with the stringent demands of social housing specification.

To support social housing landlords and specifiers, Total Glass has launched a doorset designed for this ever-changing market. Fitted with Adams Rite hardware and tested in conjunction with ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, the complete doorset meets all the relevant standards, including Secure by Design.

The new door is the first of its kind to incorporate magnets and meet with PAS 24 and Secure by Design standards. 

Speaking on the development, Andy Stolworthy, Product Manager for ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions, said: “Traditionally magnets have been used due to their lack of moving parts, which prevents damage and their ability to meet with fire safety standards, but in most cases these types of doors cannot meet with the security requirements of PAS 24 and Secured by Design. 

“Working with Total Glass, ASSA ABLOY Security Solutions has spent time developing an upgraded magnet door that has been successfully tested to PAS24.  This is a massive benefit for landlords, providing them with both fire safety and meeting all the security requirements for social housing.”
