Origin Doors

Our Accreditations

At Origin, we are dedicated to delivering products of the highest quality, supported by the best levels of service and efficiency. We are well known for our meticulous attention to detail, taking pride in everything we do. This includes not settling for today – we are always learning, innovating, evolving and improving. Put simply, we’re on a quest for perfection. It’s an ethos that has become the very heart of Origin.

From products to processes, or even our sustainability, our culture encourages continuous improvement. We’ve put this to the test by going for prestigious accreditations. We are very proud to have achieved these and feel they show our ethical and moral dedication to operate in the best way, not because we are told to, but because it’s the right thing to do. Here are some details on what we’ve achieved so far...

ISO 9001 Quality ManagementFS 584084

ISO 9001 - Quality

This international standard assesses a company’s quality management system. We first achieved this accreditation back in 2013 – so we have a consistent, tried and tested approach to ensuring our products and services meet both regulatory and customer requirements.

We take this very seriously and incorporate this approach to quality into everything that we do, including:

  • Products – we always aim for a flawless finish through best quality manufacturing. Some of the checks we have in place are:
    • Supply chain – we inspect every component when it’s delivered so that we can be sure that we’re using the best parts in manufacture. If we spot anything, it’s noted and raised with the supplier.
    • Production – to ensure that the right level of quality is being reached at every stage, there are quality checks at every station.
    • Equipment – consistency is key, so we have a robust maintenance schedule in place for equipment and machinery.
    • Pre-delivery – we review every product before it is packaged to leave us and head to its new home.
  • Feedback – we wouldn’t be able to keep learning and innovating without hearing from our internal and external stakeholders. We are proactive in seeking feedback and using it to make Origin better.
  • Employee training and development – the more our colleagues know, the better equipped they are to take the right approach to quality and help us to innovate.
ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management

ISO 14001 – Environmental

Each of us has a responsibility to the environment, and it’s a subject very close to our hearts. We have taken steps to ensure that we are doing things in the right way to reduce the impact of our operations and uphold our legal obligations.

The internationally respected ISO 14001 accreditation measures our environmental management system.

Our responsibility starts from where and how we source our components and extends right through to where they end up. Throughout the process, we aim to be zero waste to landfill and have already put things in place to make this achievable. We take our responsibility to the environment very seriously, ensuring ethical best practice at every stage, as we want our customers to be able to buy from us with a clear conscience. We feel ISO 14001 shows our commitment. Our environmental management system covers:

  • Targets for waste management and energy – to reduce our impact on the environment. We regularly share information with staff to enable them to make changes to how they work so that we can all be set on the same goal.
  • Design and lifecycle – from start to finish, our products are designed with recyclability, sustainability and the environment in mind.
  • Supply chain – we choose suppliers who share our values and work with them to improve our combined carbon footprint. This could mean reducing packaging, or reviewing our drivers’ routes so that they pick up materials rather than suppliers sending an additional fleet. We are always seeking out ways to do better.
Secured by Design

Secured by Design

A national, police-backed standard, Secured by Design, covers security and performance levels for weather, quality and operation on domestic properties. Initially introduced to ‘design out’ crime, the flagship UK police initiative encourages quality through innovative processes and products.

It’s an endorsement which shows that our doors and windows not only deliver in terms of security but that they also meet the rigorous standards of the police. Through initial testing and regular re-tests, along with inspections of our production and manufacturing facilities, we are able to show that our processes are consistent and deliver more secure and reliable products.

To be able to apply, we first needed to achieve:

  1. PAS 24 (Enhanced Security)
  2. BS EN 6375 Part 1 (Weathertightness)
  3. BS EN 6375 Part 2 (Operational and Strength Characteristics)
  4. BS EN 6375 Part 3 (Basic Security)
  5. ISO 9001 (Quality Management)

Our products passed every test, which means you can feel total reassured when choosing Origin.

PAS 24

PAS 24

This is a guarantee that all of our products are made to deliver the right level of security for the buildings they will be part of.

You can either pass or fail PAS 24 – there’s no grading beyond that. So as a minimum standard, it doesn’t show if some products far exceed the requirements, which is why we chose to take our commitment further through becoming Secured by Design accredited. We feel it shows our commitment to the overall performance and security of our products.
