Document Q, the latest addition to building regulations that covers security, came into force on 1 October 2015 and left many hardware products non-compliant. But Trojan’s core product range already met the requirements, meaning that for Trojan fabricators and installers it was business as usual.

Tony Chadwick, Trojan’s Group Managing Director, said, “We at Trojan pride ourselves on developing value added hardware. The fact that so many of our core products already meet the requirements of Document Q shows just how valuable this approach is.”

Trojan’s window hardware products that meet the requirements of Document Q are the Stallion Reverse Espag, the Mustang Slim Line Reverse Espag, the Mustang Slim Line Shootbolt, the Pegasus Window Lock, the Stallion 2 Shootbolt and the Mega Egress Hinge (hinge protection may be required).

Trojan’s door hardware products that meet the requirements of Document Q are the Patriot Plus 3D High Security Door Hinge, the 3D High Security Composite Door Hinge, the PAS 24 Stainless Steel Letter Plate and the TS007 2* Stainless Steel Door Handle.

Document Q states that all windows and doors installed in new dwellings (that means new builds and conversions) need to conform to PAS 24:2012. Full details of the requirements and how they affect fabricators and installers have been laid out in a leaflet that Trojan has prepared. The leaflet can be downloaded from the Trojan website, www.trojangroup.com.

Tony concludes, “New legislation always has the capacity to worry fabricators and installers. But our core products meet the requirements of the latest changes to the law and have done for some time, so Trojan customers don’t need to worry.”

Trojan’s value added approach means it is a market leading force in the industry. And the fact that the quality of Trojan’s core products mean they already meet the requirements of Document Q demonstrate why it is such a force to be reckoned with.
