Rachael Radcliffe, Business Development Manager at VEKA Group said: “We've been working closely with Watergate over the past year and a half in trying to achieve the PAS1188 so we are very proud to have been a part of them obtaining this worthy certification.”
As temperatures have soared in early June, the lucky first few consumers with the test installations of SMARTGLASS® Dynamic have been somewhat overjoyed and astounded with the performance of their glass.
Watergate Flood Solutions Ltd has been certified with the recently revised PAS1188 BSI Kitemark for Flood Protection Products for its composite flood door.
Based in Hebburn, Tyne & Wear, the company spent 18 months honing its design and subjecting products to rigorous testing in order to achieve the accreditation, with support from VEKA Group. The anti-flood specialist – which fabricates up to 50 doors every week – made the switch to Halo profile in 2015, and has been using its
Watergate's Sales Manager Gerard Hiscock said: “Having previously gained PAS1188 for our PVC panel doors, to now have the same accreditation for the composite flood door is a testament to the hard work of all involved. During research, we worked extensively with authorities at both a local and national level, to make sure we were bringing something to the market.
“The PAS1188 standard was updated in 2014 with even more stringent guidelines and particular attention being paid to the amount of leakage that would be deemed acceptable, so to hold this official safety standard means our clients can share our confidence in this product.”

With temperatures touching 30 degree Celsius in many parts of the UK, Mr Haydon Edwards was one of a lucky few that have adopted the SMARTGLASS® Dynamic, which is a self-tinting glass technology. His lantern roof now provides an acceptable temperature in which to sit during the early afternoon sun, with current temperatures dictating that only the most shaded or technically advanced glazed rooms are habitable. By evening time, the glass is reverting back to a clear state as the surface temperature falls.
It’s also a future technology that’s hugely exciting for Mr Edwards, who is providing considerable feedback on a near daily basis. Each panel reacts independently of one another due to the position of the sun, as he points out and the environment changes shade throughout the day to help keep internal temperatures low and excessive glare to a minimum.
He’s also been able to ascertain that it almost helps eliminate all glare from a television and also importantly, will help preserve the nature of furnishings and fabrics.
Jason McCabe, commercial and site director for Clayton Glass commented: ‘This lantern roof case study is further evidence of the fact that this ground-breaking technology works in situ. In time, we fully expect installers to join us in helping to bring to market this dynamic glass revolution.’
