Secured By Design

Secured by Design is the initiative from the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) that aims to reduce crime through effective environmental design. The scheme also calls for the installation of security products that meet police-approved standards.

The SBD logo is the only symbol that guarantees national police approval of a product, providing architects, planners, specifiers, builders and end customers with reassurance that it provides a realistic level of resistance to criminal attack. It is widely recognised within the building industry and is increasingly being listed as a mandatory requirement in tenders.

As one of the first fully approved Secured by Design manufacturers, we always maintain the pace of change by widening the scope of doors which we can certify. We offer a large range of timber doorsets in which we can fully certify to meet Secured by Design standards.

Whether it be internal or external we have the certification to offer a solution to your requirements. Typical applications for our Secured by Design doorsets include external house front and rear entrance doors, communal access doors and internal flat entrance doorsets
