Sentry Doors renew membership with SBD

We are pleased to announce that we have renewed our membership with the official police security initiative Secured by Design

Over the years we have established a strong reputation for manufacturing products that meet the most rigorous quality and fire certification standards and Secured by Design accreditation is a key part of this commitment.

Alfie Hosker, Secured by Design, said: “Sentry have been with us for a long time now. They offer an extensive range of enhanced security and fire performance rated products which meet Police Preferred Specification.

Donna Webster, Compliance Manager, Sentry Doors, said: “We strive to achieve the most robust certification in the marketplace and Secured by Design accreditation is a crucial part of this. We continually monitor and adapt to regulation changes and ensure our rigorous quality and fire safety standards are met.”

Secured by Design (SBD) is owned by the UK Police Service with the specific aim of reducing crime and helping people live more safely.

SBD seek to improve the physical security of buildings and the surrounding area using products, such as doors, windows, locks and walling systems along with fencing systems that meet the SBD Police Preferred Specification security requirements.

In addition, SBD work closely with builders, developers, local authorities and registered housing associations to incorporate the police crime prevention standards into developments from initial concept and design, through to construction and completion. Police forces throughout the UK have specially trained Designing Out Crime Officers (DOCOs) who offer police designing out crime and SBD advice free of charge. Over one million homes have been built to SBD standards with reductions in crime of up to 87%.

SBD have many partner organisations, ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government through to local authorities, housing associations, developers and manufacturers and work closely with standards and certification bodies.

As part of our ongoing mission to promote transparency when it comes to fire safety testing, certification, and compliance, we have recently launched our Compliance Portal which provides their customer base with easy access to their range of certification documents including SBD certification.
