What is TS008?
TS008 has come in to effect that sets the advanced security and general requirements for letterplates. The updated door standard PAS24:2016, now requires that an external door fitted with a letter plate has to meet the new standard.
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.
It’s highly engineered features are what set The Soterian apart from anything else currently on the market – making it both a highly secure and modern looking addition to the door.
The letterplate consists of a minimal internal flap projection of only 35mm 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 the house wall and cause damage to the interior wall.
In addition, the rounded rounded flap design set against a shallower frame has been cleverly developed to avoid any sharp edges that could be a hazard for small children to bump into.
The innovative pivoting stay mechanism reduces the opening to 37° for protection against ‘fishing’, as well as preventing intruders being able to manipulate the cylinder and unlock the door through the letterplate.
The rigorous testing requirements means that the Soterian can withstand thousands of openings without breaking, making them last even longer. Designed for 44m composite and timber doors, the installation is quick and simple.
Another great feature of The Soterian is that there are no visible fixings to the exterior of the letterplate, preventing the outer frame being unscrewed from the door externally. Instead, the concealed self-aligning metal plate fixings within the interior of the external flap greatly enhance the strength and durability of the letterplate.

Certifire Fire Rated
It is possible to order the Soterian in a Certifire fire rated version. It has been awarded the 60 minute fire-resistant Certifire certificate for 54mm timber doors and tested to Certifire standards for up to 30 minutes on a 44mm timber door profile. Receiving Certifire certification means that after stringent testing The Soterian has proven to withstand the effects of a fire and remain intact on the door for at least 30 minutes.
The fire-rated TS008 letterplate range features an intumescent lining which has the ability to expand to 50 times its volume in order to seal any gaps in the door hardware. This in turn reduces the amount of smoke that is able to seep through the aperture; and completely prevents the spread of flame.
