Indicative PAS 24:2016 Testing at Wintech

What is Indicative PAS 24 Testing?

Indicative testing allows you to pick and choose which elements of the PAS 24 test we carry out. This allows you to see where your complete window or door product is performing well, or where improvement may be needed before going ahead with the full PAS 24 test.

A PAS 24:2016 test is carried out on complete window and door systems. The test is designed to replicate the attacks most commonly associated with casual and opportunistic burglars and is made up of several elements which reflect the pressures that a casual burglar may face.

The test includes:

  • Security hardware and cylinder test
  • Manipulation test
  • Manual attacks
  • Infill manual test
  • Infill mechanical load test
  • Manual cutting test
  • Mechanical loading test
  • Manual check test
  • Impact testing

Indicative testing can be a cost-effective method. By choosing one or more of the above test elements, you can be confident your product is performing at its best before booking your full PAS 24.

Wintech Testing at Hinkley Point

Wintech conducted Hose and Spray Bar testing at the new campus development situated at Hinkley Point C. The development is part of a new nuclear plant which will provide low-carbon power for around 6 million homes.modular buildings tested by wintech on behalf of caledonian modular

 

The buildings tested by Wintech, are a range of campus blocks built by Caledonian Modular – 1,496 en-suite bedrooms across 44 individual buildings at two key locations which serve as accommodation for workers building the power plant. The buildings were built as separate modular units and assembled individually to create the blocks for workers at Hinkley Point C. The modular buildings were hose and spraybar tested by Wintech at Caledonian’s factory, and then retested again upon their installation at the Hinkley Point C campus. This ensured the highest levels of quality during their construction.

We offer a range of onsite testing services to the construction industry. Start a live chat, or call us today on 01952 586580, or email testing@wintechtesting.com to find out more about how we could help you.
