Standards & Regulations

Every Statesman product is required to meet regulatory requirements under The Building Code of Australia (BCA).

The goal of the BCA is to enable the achievement of nationally consistent, minimum necessary standards. The list below shows the key Australian Standards (AS) and technical provisions in the BCA relating to Statesman Windows products.


This Standard specifies requirements, materials, construction, installation and glazing for windows and doors.


AS1288 refers to the procedures for the selection of glass in windows, doors, showerscreens, wardrobe doors and mirrors relating to human impact.

AS4055 & AS1170

These Standards specify site wind speed classes for determining wind loads for buildings and houses. The wind speed classes are for use in the design and construction of housing, and for manufacturing of residential building products.


AS3959 covers all construction and retrofitting requirements for buildings in a bushfire prone area based on the bushfire attack level of the building. It includes the calculation of the bushfire attack level.


The access and mobility standard stipulates the design requirements for buildings encompassing the specific needs of people with disabilities.

Energy Efficiency

The BCA has technical provisions that related to energy efficiency for all classes of buildings which have a significant impact on the selection of windows and doors.

Sound Insulation

The general objective of these requirements is to protect occupants from illness or loss of amenity as a result of undue sound being transmitted between attached units or to a unit from other parts of the building.

External noise sources such as road traffic, industry or aircraft and internal noise sources such as air conditioning or ventilation systems are not included in the BCA.

Slips, Trips and Fall

The BCA has specific requirement s to minimise the risk of young children falling from windows.


This Standard specifies requirements for the performance of all types of security screens used primarily in residential situations including hinged, sliding, removable and fixed. The Standard is mainly concern with resistance to forced entry.
