Direct Trade Logo with SBDDirect Trade, the Doncaster based trade fabricator that’s twice been included in the Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100, have proved their security credentials after gaining several industry recognised accreditations.

Direct Trade have achieved the BS7950 specification for enhanced security performance for casement and tilt and turn windows and PAS 024 for residential and dual rebate composite doors. They have also achieved a Secured by Design licence for these same products manufactured in accordance with BS7950 and PAS 024; all of which are available in WHS Halos’ System 10, Rustique and Esthetique systems.

Direct Trade’s managing director Steve Green commented: “We take security very seriously here at Direct Trade, which is why we have worked hard to gain these important accreditations. Secured by Design is a real endorsement and will significantly benefit our trade customers, who can now claim they are offering some of the most secure windows and doors available on the market today.”

Gaining these accreditations is just the latest example of Direct Trade working behind the scenes to benefit their customers. The company is helping all installers buying in un-glazed frames achieve a CE Mark, ensuring they are fully compliant with the new regulation that came into force on July 1st. Installers buying fully glazed from Direct Trade will automatically comply.

“Installers don’t want the hassle of dealing with lots of red tape, which is why we have made the CE Marking process as painless as possible” Steve concluded.
