Garador has become the only Up and Over Door manufacturer to become a member of “Secured by Design”, the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of 'designing out crime'.

Garador’s Carlton and Horizon doors have under rigorous tests which are mandatory to assure that they really will stand up to the test of hammers, flames, cutting equipment and other many methods that criminals may adopt in their attempts to break in to steal garage contents or gain access to other parts of properties.

Simon Hipgrave, MD of Garador explained: “We have always been proud of the strength and quality of our doors, but to be recognised with a “Secured by Design” accreditation is a third party endorsement that is recognised and respected by all. This was not gained over night and we have worked very closely with SBD, and made certain adaptations to our product, to ensure that our doors meet their very strict criteria.”

The principles have been proven to achieve a reduction of crime risk by 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.
