Certified, Effective,

The Hall & Tawse Collection is manufactured under Secured by Design (SBD) license and has been since the scheme's early conception. You can be confident that our work supports the principle of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and high-level security standards’. A police-led initiative, the SBD principles (minimum standards of physical security and natural surveillance and defensible space) have been proven to reduce crime and the fear of crime creating safer, more secure and sustainable environments.

Over and Above the Requirements

An external door should be welcoming while robust enough to ensure your security. At DorSuite we have developed a range of timber composite doorsets which combat the combined threats of forced entry, fire, stability, weathering, distortion and maintenance related problems. Our doorsets are all manufactured under Secured By Design licence to ensure compliance with the latest security legislation.

The Hall & Tawse external doorsets demonstrate proven stability which rewards clients with the benefits of incredible resistance to both opportunist and sustained attack. We are UK market innovators in response to the latest BS6375 Part 1,2 & 3 and PAS24 tested Secured By Design requirements and through continuous development provide excellent thermal efficiency.

Accessibility considerations (DDA Compliant) are designed into our doorsets with the use of low threshold weather-bars for wheelchair access and a range of multi-point locking systems that can be easily swapped over for systems that suit the specific needs of the client. With locking systems that will automatically engage on closing to electronically activated access control we have the capability to cater for all specific Occupational Therapy requirements.
