Quality, Delivery and Service – the Munster Joinery philosophy

One of the largest manufacturers of energy-efficient doors and windows in Europe, Munster Joinery, have renewed their membership with the official police security initiative Secured by Design.

Founded in 1973, Munster Joinery has grown year on year, with the continuous development of new products, materials and processes and serves the Irish, UK and international markets.

With operations in Ireland, Northern Ireland and the United Kingdom, the company has a 910,000sq ft. production facility on a sixty-five-acre site in Ballydesmond with another 230,000 sq ft on a 20-acre site at Wellesbourne in the UK and has a workforce of 1,700 people. 

Munster Joinery offers a complete service, from site survey and product manufacture through to delivery and installation by trained Munster Joinery personnel. All of the company’s products are manufactured in their own factory, including critical operations such as uPVC extrusion, kiln-drying of timber and manufacture of glazing units. 

Secured by Design National Manager Kenny McHugh said: 
“I am delighted that Munster Joinery have renewed their membership. They have been valued members of Secured by Design since 2005 and I am amazed at the continual development of their production facility in Ballydesmond.  The constant expansion is a testament to their ethos, which sees them supplying to both the domestic and international markets. 

“Munster Joinery have an extensive range of window systems and doorsets which have achieved our Police Preferred Specification and I look forward to a continued successful working relationship with them”.

Marlene O’Mahony, Quality Manager at Munster Joinery, said: 
“We are delighted to continue our long association with Secured by Design.  This excellent police initiative has allowed us to contribute to very many prestigious developments of secure homes over the years.  It offers our customers comfort in the knowledge that our products are tried and tested.”

Secured by Design (SBD) is owned by the UK Police Service with the specific aim of reducing crime and helping people live more safely. 

SBD seek to improve the physical security of buildings and the surrounding area using products, such as doors, windows, locks and walling systems along with fencing 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.
