Dortech Doors said:
“A significant quantity of cheap, poor quality, non-conformant aluminium doors are being shipped into the UK and sold under the pretence that they are suitable for the UK market. 
“Unfortunately in many cases, we have found this not to be the case, which is why holding the Secured by Design certificate and being able to back it up with the rigorous demands of PAS24 testing and bi-annual factory audits by third party assessors are so important. 
“Our customers can be confident that that our aluminium doors not only look great but have passed the highest standards of door testing and provide a far superior level of security to cheap untested alternatives in the market. 
“We are delighted to be affiliated with Secured by Design. If it’s not a Secured by Design standard door, then in our view it’s not worth installing in your home!” 

SBD Development Officer Hazel Goss said:
“It is great news that Dortech Doors have become new members of Secured by Design. They offer a great range of Aluminium Doorsets and I am looking forward to working alongside them for many years to come”.
Secured by Design (SBD) is the official police security initiative that is owned by the UK Police Service with the specific aim to reduce crime and help people live more safely.

SBD seek to improve the physical security of buildings using products, such as doors, windows, locks and walling 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 to ensure that their publicly available standards actually meet the needs of the police and public alike.

SBD is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK.
