DSCF3595Force8 has had its range of composite panic doors independently assessed and certified.

The news from Force8 comes as the latest report from Palmer Market Research announces that composite doors have taken the lead over PVC-U panel doors in the domestic entrance door market.

As well as increasing their domestic market share, Robert Palmer explained in The Glazine (29th October) that composite doors have also become more widely specified in the social sector: “Composites were first introduced into the UK through the social housing refurbishment market. In 1993 they accounted for about 10% of that market; today it is about 70%.”

MD Dennis Sumner and the entire Force8 team consistently strive to stay one step ahead, and the certification of the company’s composite panic doors demonstrates a determination to offer a high spec safety option for every sector as composite doors continue to grow in popularity.

The Stockport-based fabricator is one of the first companies in the industry to have undergone stringent, independent testing and had its doors officially certified by BuildCheck.

Dennis Sumner explains: “with the added safety features of a Panic Door it is necessary for them to be independently audited and separately accredited to ensure the highest safety standards are adhered to.

“All the Panic Doors we supply have their DoP (Declaration of Performance) and have passed the numerous inspections required by law. Here at Force8 we have been providing Panic Doors for more than five years now and we use the best quality VEKA materials to ensure our customers’ safety and peace of mind.

“So confident are we in the quality of our products that we offer an in-depth ten year guarantee.”
