Document Q – Customer Information

On 1st October 2015 Approved Document Q (Security – Dwellings) came into effect. This new standard covers the protection of entry points to any new home.

The Building Regulations (2010) are made up of a number of approved documents, all of which look at different aspects of building or converting new dwellings. Document Q aims to provide guidance specifically for security within a new or converted dwelling. Document Q came into effect in England on 1st October 2015, the changes outlined in the revision do not apply to work started before this.

We are aiming to make this transition as easy as possible for our installers. We have had our products tested to PAS 24:2012 (Enhanced Security) standards and they have passed, meaning that we can meet the Document Q requirements where specified.

Sound complicated? Don’t worry! All you need to do is let us know where you need to comply, it’s simple on our updated quote forms and we’ll do the rest!
