Truedor Product Update September 2018



After several years of discussion and lobbying it has been agreed to introduce a Building Regulation requiring a minimum level of security for doors and windows.

Security is now included in Building Regulations in England and Scotland, and in Wales from the 1st November 2018.

Approved Document Q 2015 – Security: Dwellings

In order to meet building regulations in England and Scotland only, you can order from our XTR range of doors

This regulation covers any new dwellings built in England and they will be expected to comply for new planning applications from 1st October 2015 and for any sites where building work is started after the 1st October 2016 (in line with the usual transition arrangements).

The regulation will also apply to changes in use of buildings.
