Secured by Design
Secured By Design was established in 1989 by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO). It’s the group name for a number of national police projects focused on the design and security of new and refurbished homes as well as commercial premises. The principles of the scheme have been proven to reduce the risk of crime and the fear of crime.
The Secured By Design Developer Award is given to building developments which, following consultation with local police Architectural Liaison Officers or Crime Prevention Design Advisors, are built to Secured By Design guidelines.
The project supports the National Planning Policy Framework’s aim of creating ‘safe and accessible environments where crime and disorder, and the fear of crime, do not undermine quality of life or community cohesion.’
Secured By Design member company status is awarded to companies producing security products that pass standards and tests nominated by the police service. The standards and related tests must demonstrate the product effectiveness in preventing or reducing crime, usually by resistance to physical attack.
We are experienced in the manufacture of electronic security equipment on various types of doors from domestic home projects to fully integrated, large multi-entrance systems.
Timber and GRP Entrance
Our Secured By Design external timber doors are manufactured to the PAS24 standard.
This means they are designed to protect low-risk properties from opportunist attempts at forced entry using various hand tools. Some of the features include a shielded door and frame, anti-intrusion bolts and a 3 point locking system.
