Safety and security
Safe and secure…
A home isn’t a home without the safety and security it brings, so it’s something we take very seriously at Origin.
It’s a massive design priority for our in-house Research and Development team, and we’re so proud to say that all of our products (excluding those from our Sliding and Internal Door ranges) are not only PAS:24 2016 compliant, but are also Secured by Design accredited too.
This means that our products have been thoroughly examined and tested to make sure they’re fit for purpose in any property, whether that’s in an existing structure, renovation or new build.
Secured by Design is the police preferred specification that has been created to help ‘design out’ crime through the use of high-quality, innovative products and processes. In order to achieve Secured by Design status, our products had to adhere to rigorous test standards required by the police.
Furthermore, across all of the range, our doors and windows are built with the highest-grade aluminium to supplement our stance on security, and there are no compromises throughout its overall construction – as an example, even our hinges have been cycle tested and are capable of carrying exceptionally heavy loads, so you know they’ll perform how they ought to.
Doors - 8 Points of Locking…
The Residential, Bi-fold, Corner Bi-fold, French and Single Door can all be specified with our own specially designed multi-point lock. With 8 points of locking, it ensures your home is kept safe and secure. Chamfered 20mm linear bolts offer a smoother operation when engaging the lock, as well as giving maximum compression for increased weather resistance. Add deep throw 25mm security hooks - the deepest engagement available on the market today - and the lock delivers the best in both security and weatherproofing.
They also come with barrel options, but both are proven to protect against snapping, picking, drilling and bumping, to offer a defence that is second to none.
Additionally, our doors make use of our bespoke hinges that have been designed and manufactured to withstand attacks, whilst the innately strong aluminium profile makes systems ultra-secure.
Windows – Bi-Directional Locking…
The OW-70 and OW-80 use different locks, but both achieve PAS:24 2016 and Secured by Design. On the OW-70, it uses the ultra-secure Nemesis multi-point lock, so you can rest easy knowing you’re in good hands. On the OW-80, it makes use of Yale’s highly renowned and dependable Encloser Lock.
Both feature bi-directional locking that works by engaging cylindrical cams into a zinc alloy keep, which when locked, compressed and engaged, will not only provide an extremely dependable system, but will also provide optimal weather proofing, ensuring that your home is safe from intruders and elements alike.
Their respective gearboxes have been engineered to work perfectly with the locks to ensure a smooth operation and long-term durability.
Your Ultra-Secure Slider
You can’t put a price on safety, especially in your home.
We take security very seriously at Origin, which is why both sliding door systems are designed to protect your home and the people dear to you, whilst keeping intruders out.
From a safety perspective, a clever, concealed track reduces the risk of fingers and toes from accidentally getting caught. Additionally, because the opening action happens on one track, it means the mechanics are simple but effective, reducing unnecessary security points and making your doors safer.
The Patio Slider door locks solidly into the jamb, or on the OS-20, it can lock into its adjacent door. In both instances, the doors are equipped with an ultra-secure multi-point locking system, which features a minimum of 6 points of locking and will help keep the family safe and protected. Additionally, both OS-29 and OS-77 conforms to the rigorous standards of PAS 24:2016 for extra peace of mind.
On top of this, the frames are constructed from a strong, high grade aluminium. So, whatever door system you choose, you can be confident you’re completely protected with Origin.
Safe Across the Range…
There are innovative safety features found throughout the Origin Home range that have been designed to keep the family safe. From finger safe gaskets and magnetic catches on the doors, through to restrictor hook options and being able to serve as emergency exits throughout the window range, and mobility thresholds to minimise boundaries and restrictor options and knockers with integrated spy holes on the residential door, these products have been designed with your family’s safety in mind.
