Secured by Design is all about preventing crime by installing high-security products in commercial and residential buildings. The initiative is owned by ACPO (Association of Chief Police Officers) and has reduced crime risk by up to 75%.
In order to be Secured by Design accredited, products must pass a series of tests, including PAS 24: 2016 enhanced security performance requirements for doorsets and windows in the UK.
However, windows and doors can be PAS 24 accredited, without being Secured by Design. Whereas a PAS24 test can be done on a window or door system, Secured by Design accreditation covers the entire window or doorset, including hardware, hinges and glass units.
That’s how you can be assured that the product you buy is Secured by Design, because only products that have been tested as a whole unit can carry the blue and yellow Secured by Design badge.
Please note Secured by Design accredited products have some design limitations, for more information on Secured by Design products, call the team on 01952 581100.
