Security tested across Listers’ Residence Range
Products in the Residence Collection range from Listers have all been PAS24 tested, underscoring the trade fabricator’s commitment to security, while simplifying the decision-making process for homeowners.
By meeting PAS24 credentials as part of the design and manufacturing process, homeowners are assured that Listers-made Residence windows and doors are produced to a much higher standard than from other sources.
Security is always paramount in the minds of homeowners, and by PAS24 testing all products in the Residence Collection, we are allowing our customers to push security as a defining feature of their windows, not as an optional extra. It then allows homeowner to concentrate on the other key features, such as the authentic flush sash, heritage detailing, and the diverse colour palette in the Residence Collection range.Listers’ Managing Director Roy Frost
PAS24 is a set of tests designed to assess the security of door and windows against an attempted attack by an opportunistic burglar. While it is not mandatory for refurbishment projects, compliance is required for all newbuild homes.
All Residence frames are affected, including open-in and open-out doors, and single and French doors.
And in a move that will benefit customers who prefer to source their units from a local supplier, or want greater flexibility over the installation process, Residence R7 windows can now be ordered unglazed.
Residence Collection windows were originally designed to be glass-bonded, which offered structural integrity that didn’t require steel inserts. But this method doesn’t suit all window installers, and many want the flexibility to install unglazed windows because they are either easier to fit, or they want to buy their units from elsewhere.Listers’ Managing Director Roy Frost
Listers have re-designed their R7 windows so that they retain their strength, but don’t require glass bonding. Frames are then delivered unglazed with the option to have units packed separately.
Glass-bonded windows are heavy. So while the R7 window is a premium product that attracts a better margin, it also requires extra manpower to install, which eats into those profits. By offering R7 windows unglazed, they only require one person to install and our customers can take advantage of those cost savings. Sourcing locally made units that have a lower carriage fee can also lower costs and increase profit margin.Listers’ Managing Director Roy Frost
All Residence Collection products are fully de-taped, QA-checked, retaped, and fully wrapped before being shipped to the customer.
We are proud of our Residence Collection range, and we want our customers to appreciate them as much as we do. So we go to great lengths to make sure they arrive at the their destination in perfect condition!Listers’ Managing Director Roy Frost
