MILA has supported Bridgwater based Notaro Windows in gaining Approved Document Q (ADQ) accreditation for windows to be installed in a new housing development, advising on the window and hardware specification and arranging the PAS24 security testing required for ADQ.
Director Sam Notaro said: “The Notaro Group includes a housebuilding division and this was the first new development we had started since the ADQ rules came into play. Not only did Mila give us expert advice on what we needed to do to comply with the rules, they actually arranged all the necessary testing and approvals for us.”
Mila Technical Director Strafford Cooke, said: “Up until now, lots of fabricators supplying the new build market have been relatively unaffected by the PAS24 requirement within ADQ because they have been working on long term developments which they can argue started several years ago. That is all starting to change though, and we’re getting more and more requests from customers like Notaro working on new developments who want help on hardware specification, cascading of test data and the testing itself.”
