Sledgehammer vs Endurance Door

National Installer of Windows and Doors

There is a lot of discussion in the industry at the moment about Document Q, PAS24 and the new cut test. Some manufacturers are having to up their game to meet the new regulations, others are shouting loudly about how their doors are already up to standard.

Endurance Doors already exceed the standard required by Document Q and have done for years. We decided that since we already knew the result of the cut test, rather than simply recreate it we would subject one of our doors to a different type of attack.

One of our team members, David, was convinced that he could break through the door using a sledgehammer. We were sure he was wrong, so we supplied him with the hammer and sat back with a camera to enjoy the show.

You can watch the video on our website to find out what happened next. We don’t believe any other composite door would stand up to this kind of sustained attack.

For further information on the Endurance® Solid and Secure composite door range for complete door sets or for slab only manufacturing, please log on to, e-mail or call the sales office on 01652 659259. You can also follow us on Twitter @EnduranceDoors.
