HOPPE (UK) renew membership with Secured by Design

HOPPE (UK) has confirmed its commitment to the highest standards of security through renewal of its membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.

HOPPE (UK) is a member of HOPPE Group, a market leader in the field of door and window hardware, established in the UK in 1988. The company benefits highly from the Group’s over 60 years of insight and experience in the field of architectural hardware.

Based in Wolverhampton, the specialist manufacturer operates from a purpose-built, state-of-the-art distribution centre with highly-skilled, Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) trained staff. HOPPE (UK) delivers award-winning service and is committed to providing products that have been tested to meet the latest European and British standards, offering both quality and innovation to all sectors of the market.

It offers a comprehensive range of products designed for use within the commercial and residential market. HOPPE (UK)’s Atlanta Security Handle has achieved the Police Preferred Specification.

Ged Ryan, CEO of HOPPE (UK), said: 
“HOPPE (UK) has been part of the Secured by Design initiative for many years. We renewed our membership as being part of the scheme gives our customers further confidence in our products, knowing we have met the requirements recommended by a police security initiative.”

SBD Development Officer, Ruari Robertson, said: 
“I am delighted that HOPPE (UK) has chosen to renew its long-standing membership of Secured by Design and I look forward to developing that relationship further in the future”.

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.
