Gerda Doors Makes SBD Entrance

Pioneer Trading Company has renewed its Secured by Design membership and added its Gerda doors to its certification. The firm now also supplies DoorCo and DoorStop doors in Deceuninck frames.

The company manufactures the Deceuninck range of windows, doors and conservatories and supplies them to the trade throughout the UK. The Essex based firm also has exclusive distribution rights for Gerda Engineered Entrance Doors in the UK and Ireland.

Products covered under the agreement include Deceuninck doorsets, casement and flush sash windows and Gerda Optima 60, Thermo Premium and Thermo Prime doorsets.


Security standards

Tina Beal, group sales director for Pioneer Trading Company, says: “We will continue our long association with Secured By Design, which ensures that we continue to manufacture and sell windows and doors that meet the highest standards of security and performance in our industry. 

“Of key importance is the inclusion of Gerda Engineered Entrance Doors, on our Police Preferred Specification Accredited Product List. With their aluminium outer frames and steel facings, Gerda overcome the inherent problems of bowing and warping that composite doors suffer from and offer superior security. They sailed through the PAS24 tests prior to us obtaining our SBD accreditation.”



As well as high levels of security, Gerda Doors also offer U-values, ranging from 1.3 W/m2K for glazed designs, as low as 0.74 W/m2K for the Gerda Altus door which exceeds Passivhaus standards
