    ADQ and ADB Approved Doorsets

    Following the Housing Standards Review conducted by the DCLG, the government has now issued a new building regulation for the security of dwellings. Much content of Approved Document Q (ADQ) has been adopted from Secured by Design requirements.

    “It is extremely important that specifiers and developers can recognise that a product is ADQ compliant whilst also meeting the performance standards required for other building regulations. Test evidence and certification must be checked. With the introduction of new building regulations in housing, it is most important that specifiers and developers can recognise product that is compliant.” Jon Cole, National Operations Manager, Secured by Design.

    For specifiers, knowing which entrance doors to choose can present a challenge.   Entrance doorsets for flats and apartments are likely to require a fire rating to comply with Approved Document B for fire safety, as well as meeting Approved Document L for thermal insulation and now Approved Document Q for security. Throw in the fact that some doorsets will be glazed and will have toplights and sidelights – means that it is most important that the right choice is made for compliant doors.
