PAS 24

What is PAS 24?

PAS 24 is a set of tests designed to assess the security of door and windows against the effects of an opportunistic burglar. It is not designed to defend against a professional crook.

The tests involved consider the size of tool used and the time it would take to be noticed.

Why do people need PAS 24?

To comply with current building regulations all new builds and conversions require door and windows to have test evidence showing they have passed the security aspects of PAS 24.

What is needed to comply with those building regulations?

The security aspects of PAS 24 is all that is needed. None of the operational tests are needed.

But why do we need it?

Because of building regulations, also people want to feel secure in their own homes.
