Garador introduces the first Secured by Design up and over door

As home security continues to be a growing concern for home owners, specifiers and house builders are increasingly demanding products that are inherently secure. 

And the security of the garage and its contents is becoming as important to some homeowners as the rest of the house.   Therefore Garador is extremely proud that it has become the first Up and Over Door manufacturer to become a member of "Secured by Design" (SBD), the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of 'designing out crime'.

Garador's new Guardian Range of doors currently encompassing redesigned Carlton and Horizon doors which have undergone rigorous tests which are mandatory to assure that they really will stand up to the test that criminals may adopt in their attempts to break in to steal the garage contents or gain access to other parts of properties.

Simon Hipgrave, MD, said: "We have always been proud of the strength and quality of our doors, but to be able to now also provide a door recognised with the "Secured by Design" accreditation is fantastic.  This has not been gained over night; we have worked very closely with SBD and made a number of adaptations to our product, to ensure that these doors meet the very strict criteria."

Secured by Design focuses on the crime prevention of homes and commercial premises by designing out crime from the start by using appropriate products. The principles have been proven to achieve a reduction in crime of up to 60%, by combining minimum standards of physical security and well-tested principles of natural surveillance and defensible space.

The membership scheme currently includes over 400 companies whose products have been awarded 'Police Preferred Specification' status across a broad range including; bicycle security, perimeter fencing, mobile phones, roofing products and secondary glazing.

Licensed members of the Secured by Design scheme are entitled to use the Secured by Design logo and promote the term 'Police Preferred Specification' on products which have passed the tests specified by ACPO Secured by Design.
