The future of TS008 is slim. Our ultimate TS008 letterplate - The Soterian - just got even slimmer (by 21mm).

What is TS008?

The Door & Hardware Federation (DHF) TS008: 2015 sets the advanced security requirements of letterplates.

The updated door standard PAS 24:2016 now requires an external door fitted with a letterplate to meet TS008: 2015.

In order to meet TS008 test requirements, the letterplate must eliminate the risk of an intruder gaining access to the property by means of physical force, ‘fishing’ and lock manipulation, whilst also maintaining clear access for postal items.

The Soterian Slim

Slim but mighty. The Soterian Slim letterplate boasts features that not only set it apart from other TS008 letterplates on the market, but beyond TS008.

Serrated Stays are what make the Soterian Slim letterplate go beyond TS008. They are foldable to achieve compactness for transit and storage, biased to stay open to aid fitting and serrated to frustrate thumbturn or handle manipulation by strap/cord.

The letterplate consists of a minimal internal flap projection of only 14mm from the door surface, giving a less intrusive feel to the door. In fact, the letterplate lies within the straight line from the hinge side of the door to the handle. This unrestricted door opening means the door can open fully without the risk of the letterplate smashing against and causing damage to the interior wall.

An innovative pivoting stay mechanism reduces the opening to 39 degrees for protection against key ‘fishing’ and lock manipulation.

Designed for 44mm – 70mm composite, timber and uPVC doors, installation is quick and simple - all it takes is eight screws and a hinge rod.

testing icon

At UAP we are constantly striving to improve on the products we already supply as well as develop new, pioneering ranges and practical product solutions.

With an in house testing centre and product developer, each stage of the development process is thorough, from the initial design right down to the final product. In house 3D printing technology allows for further and more precise advancement of our products which are then expertly manufactured and put through stringent testing conditions using in house test equipment – ensuring all products are designed to the highest standards:

TS008

TS008:2015 (Including Corrigendum No.1, March 2016) – Enhanced security and general requirements for letter plate assemblies and slide through boxes.

Classification

 Model: The Soterian 
  Product type A
  Aperture type and location 1
  Enhanced security level 2
  Option to lock the letter plate N
  Corrosion 3
 Water Penetration N
 Fire Resistant 0
  Arson attack 0

Note 1:  Letter plates have also met the requirements of strength and durability in line with clauses 6.7 and 6.8 of TS008

Note 2: This product is for limited use with 44mm foam / composite doors with timber stiles or timber doors only. This product has not been tested to TS008 on PVC doors.

Letterplate Flap Cycle Machine

By replicating the action of opening and closing the letterplates flaps, the machine can determine the durability of the hinge mechanism on the product. The flaps are repeatedly opened and closed to ensure they can withstand thousands of openings without snapping or breaking, promising a product that will last much longer than others in the industry. The process is repeated to 100,000 repetitions – with only 20,000 required by testing standards. Tests are performed in accordance with BS EN 13724:2013.

Anti-Fishing Tests

This standardised security test measures the ability of a letterplate to resist attack by fishing; a method of gaining keys through a letterbox using a hook. A letterplate must prevent the accessibility of a hook through it, and this is tested by inserting an aluminium rod, which is 6mm in diameter and 1200mm long, through the letterplate and seeing whether or not it can touch a target of 20mm in diameter, which has been placed on a table on the other side of the door.

If the rod is unable to touch the target, then it passes the technical standard. If not then a further test is conducted to see if a disc 0.075kg can be retrieved through the door.

Salt Spray Test

This machine tests the corrosion resistance of the letterplates. The salt spray cabinet produces a corrosive environment, by releasing a dense saline fog into the chamber which the letterplates are exposed to. This creates an accelerated corrosion of the letterplate and allows us to test how well the letterplate would stand up in harsher environments.

The letterplates are tested for differing lengths of time depending on the standard requirements; 480 hours for zamak and aluminium based letterplates where we offer a 5 year inland coating guarantee, and in the case of stainless steel Nanocoast letterplates, we test for 2,000 hours where we offer a LIFETIME coating guarantee anywhere in the country, as the letterplates will not pit or rust.

Tensile Strength Test

The tensile strength machine tests the resistance of a material to breaking under tension. It is used to see how well the letterplates perform when pressure is applied to them. The letterplates are attached to pieces of timber or plastic to see how well the fixings perform with the letterplate, which gives a more accurate test on the overall letterplate performance.

 

Letterplate Guarantee:

UAP Ltd distribute a wide range of letterplates, with flaps made from aluminium and Nanocoast 304 or 316 grade stainless steel.

The letterplates are available in a range of colours, and we guarantee the letterplates and finishes against the following:

Surface Coating Failure

Coating Guarantee = the sooner of “the guarantee supplied for the door or window from the manufacturer” or “5 years inland” on aluminium based flap letterplates or “Lifetime” on Nanocoast 304 or 316 grade stainless steel based flap letterplates.

We guarantee that the letterplates will not tarnish on the door for the guarantee period given above subject to;

1. The letterplates are applied to a door or door panel, and no item of door furniture on the door or door panel are sealed or fixed using any form of silicone sealant or the like.

2. The letterplates are fixed correctly and the right way around with the brushes facing to the outside using the correct fixings, and are not scratched or damaged at any time during the installation process or thereafter.

3. Nanocoast 304 or 316 grade stainless steel based letterplates are cleaned with a lemon based very mild soap solution and a soft cloth once a month, or every 2 weeks in areas of high sea salt such as coastal areas. At no point should any form of cleaning agents be used.

4. Aluminium based letterplates are installed inland (defined as 25 miles from the coast or 5 miles from highly populated industrial areas) and are cleaned monthly with a moist cloth. At no point should any form of cleaning agents be used.

5. No claim will be accepted for any letterplate that is scratched or mutilated or fitted incorrectly.

6. The guarantee only applies if the letterplate is fixed to the original door for which it was bought and fitted by the installer. The guarantee will cease immediately if the letterplate is removed from the original door or door panel.
