IG Doors renew membership with SBD

Supplier to the New Build and Social Housing Refurbishment sectors for over 35 years, IG Doors have renewed their membership with the official police security initiative Secured by Design.

IG Doors are the market leaders within their field and have one of the largest production capacities available for both New Build and Refurbishment projects.  They have the resources, flexibility and organisational structure to cope with the requirements of major National House Builders and Developers, Local Authorities and Social Housing Landlords.

This is backed by a team of experienced Technical Engineers who ensure the specifications meet customer requirements and a highly experienced, nationwide Sales Team, able to advise on every aspect of specification and provide site support when required, whether it’s a new build or refurbishment.

IG Doors success is based on a partnership approach to working with their clients, outstanding delivery and service performance and an understanding of the needs of the residents into whose homes IG products are going to be installed.

IG Doors specifically developed a range of products suited to the individual needs of the sectors it services; a product range which is fully compliant with the requirements of changing building industry legislation, as well as meeting the Police Preferred Specification embodied in the Secured by Design initiative.

You can find out more about IG Doors and their range of Secured by Design accredited doorsets on the SBD website www.securedbydesign.com

Hazel Goss, Secured by Design, said: 
“It has been a pleasure to renew contracts with IG Doors, who have been one of our long standing members going all the back to 2006 so are now on their 15th year with Secured by Design. They produce an excellent range of doors and I am looking forward to many more years working alongside them”.
IG Doors commented:
“We are delighted to continue our longstanding Secured by Design membership. We believe it is a fantastic initiative that offers guidance to people who are looking for quality security products.”
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. 

BD 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.
