Britannia Metador is pleased to announce that it has become members of Secured by Design, accrediting and recognising that its Defender Xtreme security door provides an effective measure in preventing and reducing crime.
The Middlesbrough based company is one of the UK’s leading steel security door manufacturers and a family run business with experience in the security industry spanning over 25 years.
The scheme is acknowledged by the UK Police, Home Office and a number of local authorities, and is part of a long established national project which focusses on the design and security of new and refurbished homes, commercial premises and car parks.
Its membership now allows police forces to recommend them and its Secured by Design product to home owners, commercial property owners, architects and housing associations who are looking to strengthen their premises’ security.
In order to become a Secured by Design member, companies must produce security products that pass certified standards and independent tests, as nominated by the police service. The standards and related tests must demonstrate product effectiveness in preventing or reducing crime, usually by resistance to physical attack and other common burglary methods.
This is not a simple process and is reserved only for products that provide the highest possible se-curity measures. Metador’s Defender Xtreme range is now Secured by Design, joining their other standards and accreditations such as CE Marking, ISO 9001 and BS 476 (fire doors), in ensuring that they deliver a first class security product that meets its customers’ requirements, on time, eve-ry time.
Britannia Metador Managing Director, Simon Evershed said:
“We are pleased to announce that we are now a member of Secured by Design, the flagship UK police initiative to help ‘design out’ crime through the use of high-quality, innovative products and processes.
“This is a great move forward for us in our company in the development of our Metador Defender Xtreme door set, which had to adhere to rigorous test standards required by the police to achieve the prestigious Secured by Design status.”
Secured by Design supports the principles of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and processes, and aims to place as many security enhanced products into as many buildings as possible. The scheme works with the industry and tests properties to create high level security standards, responding to trends in crime and providing input on a number of key areas.
The majority of burglaries take place by breaking into the property through a door, either by forcing the lock or kicking it in, so making sure your doors are strong and secure is vital. For home owners, business owners and housing associations, ensuring your property is built with a Secured by Design product provides safety reassurance and security peace of mind.
