NEW Introducing the Part Q Compliance Scheme

TOOLFIX RELEASE NEW PART Q WINDOW CERTIFICATION SCHEME

The edition of Approved Document Q: Security – Dwellings took effect on 1 October 2015, outlining new security regulations for easily accessible windows and doors in new homes.

Building regulations now state that; “reasonable provision must be made to resist unauthorised access to any dwelling”, and in relation to windows, this means that all easily accessible windows, roof windows and skylights being fitted to new homes and existing buildings that are being converted into new homes, should be made to a design – that has been shown by test – to meet the security of British Standards publication PAS 24:2012.

It goes some way to improving security in residential dwellings, setting security standards for windows to resist physical attack by opportunist burglars by being both sufficiently robust and fitted with appropriate hardware.

However, having your own windows tested to become Part Q certified can be expensive and time consuming – so Toolfix have done it for you!

Nigel Burt, Sales Manager says “after customer research, we discovered a number of joiners still shying away from projects that required Part Q certification due to time and cost implications. We wanted to simplify this process and enable businesses of all sizes to become compliant.”

The newly available Part Q Window Certification Scheme from Toolfix allows you to manufacture officially UKAS tested Flush Casement Windows simply by following tested and certified section drawings, combined with fitting only the tested and certified components list.

Nigel Burt adds, “Whether you’re looking to manufacture Part Q Compliant windows all year round, or you just have a single project, we can offer a cost effective solution.”

Simply apply for your certificate from Toolfix and start manufacturing Part Q certified windows!

Fire Door Safety Week 2017

Raising Awareness to Help Improve Fire Safety – #FireDoorSafetyWeek

25th September – 1st October 2017

We’re pledging our support to Fire Door Safety Week; The initiative from the British Woodworking Federation (BWF), the BWF-CERTIFIRE Fire Door Scheme and the UK’s Fire Door Inspection Scheme (FDIS).

The campaign aims to engage and educate whilst raising awareness of this critical element of fire safety in every commercial, public and multiple occupancy building. Highlighting the critical role of fire doors and drawing attention to specific issues such as poor installation and maintenance, and encouraging building owners and users to check the operation and condition of their fire doors and to report those that aren’t satisfactory.

There are about 3 million new fire doors bought and installed every year in the UK, the vast majority made from timber. Fire doors are often the first line of defence in a fire and their correct specification, maintenance and management can be the difference between life and death for building occupants. However, they remain a significant area of neglect, often the first thing to be downgraded on a specification and mismanaged throughout their service life, propped open, damaged and badly maintained.

Consequently, Fire Door Safety Week seeks to engage and educate people, helping every property owner and installer to understand the correct specification, supply, installation, operation, inspection and maintenance of fire doors.

The nationwide campaign is run every year by the British Heart Foundation allowing families and individuals throughout the UK to donate £100,000’s of re-saleable goods and clothes to BHF. The funds generated by the sale of these items goes towards the cost of continued research by medical experts into heart diseases.

This year the RRT have set themselves to inspire enough people in our lives and communities to donate generously in support of the campaign, to reach 20,000 bags for the British Heart Foundation. This would be worth up to £250,000 of life saving research.

How to Take Part

Simply donate your stuff! Whether you’re re-organising the wardrobe or clearing out the garage, simply bag up your unwanted stuff and your decluttering triumph will help fund life saving research.

What To Donate
