Secured by Design (SBD) is the official police security initiative that works to improve the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings to provide safe places to live.
SBD’s product-based accreditation scheme – the Police Preferred Specification – provides a recognised standard for all security products that can deter and reduce crime. This includes domestic windows and doors, and the components within them such as locks, hinges etc.
Our sister manufacturing company, Conservatory Outlet (part of the Conservatory Outlet Group) is a registered member of Secured by Design and many of our products have been tested to meet the demands of the standard. Please ask your Pennine advisor for details if security is a particular concern for you.
