Secured by Design (SBD) is a Police-run scheme, established to design out crime and enhance the security of buildings, and their immediate surroundings, to make them safer.
SBD’s product-based accreditation scheme – the Police Preferred Specification – is the recognised standard for products that are purposely designed to discourage and minimise crime. It incorporates products like domestic windows and doors, and their accompanying components e.g., locks and hinges.
Conservatory Outlet (part of the Conservatory Outlet Group), our sister manufacturing company, is a registered Secured by Design member, and much of our product range has been tested to satisfy the standard.
