NEOS Development Manager Derek Quinn said: “We are extremely proud to invest in continual innovation at Neos. We have always believed that it is vitally important to test and certificate our products to give the customer confidence that we are meeting the standards of the SBD Scheme.

“Having products which tick multiple boxes in terms of specification makes life easier in a commercial sense, but we also believe that proving our products by testing is morally the right thing to do. When you consider how effective these products are in protecting lives from fire and security threats, we can rest assured that we are providing the best products possible”.

SBD Technical Manager, Alfie Hosker, said: “Once again Neos Protect have developed their range of doorsets to include a variety of offerings which incorporate not only enhanced security characteristics, but fire performance amongst other attributes, on a single scope of certification with Certisecure (Warrington Fire). These are a fantastic asset to their SBD Police Preferred Specification range of products”.
