Glazing Vision - Specifying Rooflights to Approved Document Q Whitepaper

When specifying windows, doors and rooflights, it is crucial to ensure that the chosen product is both safe and secure; the new Approved Document Q now requires all rooflights deemed as 'easily accessible' to pass relevant security tests in order to comply with building regulations.

But which standard and testing method is most applicable to your chosen rooflight, and what is actually deemed as 'easily accessible'?

Glazing Vision's guide is designed to clarify everything you need to know about rooflight security under Approved Document Q.

The whitepaper covers the following:

  • What is the new Approved Document Q?
  • What are the test standards for secure rooflights?
  • What is Secured by Design?
  • Security of glass in rooflights

Security isn't something you leave to chance; Glazing Vision's new range of Secured by Design rooflights comply with Part Q and ultimately provide peace of mind by designing out crime.
