Stellar’s proven security and quality

7 February 2020

Stellar, the double G Award-winning retail and light commercial system from Epwin Window Systems, has received three important accreditations that further prove the quality and security of the system.

Stellar now holds Secured by Design certification. It also holds the BS 4873 / PAS24 Kitemark for an Enhanced Security Aluminium Window System and is Kitemark-accredited under the requirements of BSI BS 4873 Aluminium Window System Supplier.

Adrian Crutchley, Accreditations Manager at Epwin Window Systems, said: “Delivering outstanding security and quality was an essential part of Stellar’s remit and built in from the start. These new accreditations prove that we’ve more than achieved the high levels we set ourselves.”

Secured by Design is the official UK police security initiative for designing out crime and is a certification homeowners trust. Secured by Design-accredited products are tested to relevant security standards and are fully certified by an independent third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

The BS 4873 / PAS24 Kitemark is a third-party certification indicating the security credentials of a product. Certification means that installers can be confident that the product meets the requirements of Document Q, so is suitable for use in new build homes, something that opens up significant opportunities for Stellar fabricators and installers.

Achieving the BSI BS 4873 Kitemark for an Aluminium Window System Supplier demonstrates Stellar meets exacting design, construction and performance requirements.

Stellar has been setting new standards for the aluminium sector since its launch last year. Designed for high performance but also to be simple to fabricate and install, it’s a British system that delivers everything fabricators, installers, specifiers and homeowners want. In achieving these three certifications, it’s boosted its reputation even further as the future of aluminium windows and doors.
