SWD’s internal door leafs upto a size of 2400mm x 1000mm have been tested to PAS24 within a door set by one of our licensed manufacturers and were accredited as Secured By Design after undergoing rigorous testing at UKAS test house.
Secured by Design licensed company status is awarded to those companies producing security products, including doors and windows, which pass standards and tests nominated by the police service as “Police Preferred Specification”.

What is Secured By Design (SBD)?

SBD is a corporate title for a family of national police projects, involving the design for new homes, refurbished homes, commercial premises and other police crime prevention projects.

It is primarily an initiative to encourage those involved in the housing industry to adopt crime prevention measures to assist in reducing the opportunity for crime and the fear of crime, creating a safer and more secure environment.
Secured by Design supports one of the Government's key planning objectives - the creation of secure, quality places where people wish to live and work.
Are you considering new build or refurbishment works? Why should you make SBD such a priority? 

The new Part Q of the building regulation for England will introduce the requirement for security-rated doors and windows to be provided for new build homes. The changes, as proposed in the new Approved Document Q, will take effect on 1st October 2015 for use in England

Solid Wooden Doors in conjunction with our licensed manufacturer, make sure every aspect of our doors are tested to destruction including the hinges, locking mechanisms and handles. Tests also simulate the uses of a wide variety of burglary tools to measure how effective the doors are against every conceivable type of break in.
Secured by Design certification is given to a complete door set which includes the following components; door, handle, lock, cylinder, frame, hinges, door chain, letter plate and glazing (where applicable)

What our SBD accreditation means to you.

When you are specifying internal door sets to apartments, you will be able to have the internal front doors in the same design and finish with the same design of handle if it is SBD specified. All our flush door ranges can be used, which include the Designer range, Natural Range with V grooves, and the Urban Range with metal inlays.

The door sets can be supplied with multipoint or single point locking. With the single point lock almost any good quality bolt through lever handle can be fitted, whereas the multipoint lock requires a security pattern narrow backplate espagnolette lever with limited options of style and finish. The door set can be fitted with either overhead or concealed door closers
