Manufacturer of Premium Quality Timber Doors and Windows joins Secured by Design

Manufacturer of premium quality timber doors and windows George Barnsdale & Sons Ltd is one of the latest companies to join with Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.

Founded in 1884, George Barnsdale is a family run business manufacturing high-performance timber doors and windows in Donington, Lincolnshire. Leading the way in innovation, craftsmanship and attention to detail, their doors and windows offer superb quality which are highly customisable, suitable for home or businesses.

From the grandest of buildings and the cutest of cottages, to Victorian listed mill projects and contemporary self builds, George Barnsdale have covered all projects types. Manufacturing on the same site in Donington, Lincolnshire since 1884, their humble workshop has grown into a state-of-the-art timber doors and windows joinery manufacturer with computer-controlled laser cutting machines for precision joints, a robotic paint sprayer and an on-site research and development centre.

Combining 21st century technology with good old fashioned customer service, the business is still very much a hands-on family affair run by 5th generation Barnsdale Tom Wright. Sustainability and resilience being at the forefront of everything they do, their commitment to the environment extends beyond the FSC© certified timber they source and their sponsorship of the Woodland Trust.

They have a range of doors and windows that have achieved the Police Preferred Specification.

SBD Development Officer, Hazel Goss, said: 
“'It's a pleasure to have George Barnsdale & Sons Limited join as new members of Secured by Design; they offer a selection of timber doors and windows and I am looking forward to working alongside them hopefully for many years to come”.
Tom Wright, Managing Director of George Barnsdale & Sons said: 
“Whilst we have already had the test data and wider security accreditations for our range of timber windows and doors, we are pleased to have formalised our registration with the Secured by Design scheme”.

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.

SBD developed a product-based accreditation scheme over 20 years ago – the Police Preferred Specification, which provides a recognised standard for all security products that can deter and reduce crime. SBD work with manufacturers and standards authorities to ensure that security standards are current and updated to keep pace with emerging crime trends. 

There are currently many hundreds of companies producing thousands of attack resistant crime prevention products, across over 30 different crime categories, which have achieved Police Preferred Specification.

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