Europe's largest door manufacturer, Hörmann UK, renew SBD membership

Hörmann UK has recently renewed their membership with Secured by Design (SBD), achieving Police Preferred Specification on their ‘Hörmann ThermoPro Steel Entrance Single Leaf Doorset Range’, alongside several of their garage doors and vehicular roller shutter doors.

Secured by Design (SBD) is the official police security initiative that works to improve the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings with the aim to reduce crime through good design. SBD is the only way to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK.

SBD plays an undeniable role in crime prevention, as seen within their product-based accreditation scheme, Police Preferred Specification (PPS). PPS successfully provides a recognised standard for all security-related products that can be used to both deter and reduce crime. Products are subjected to vigorous testing and auditing by an accredited third-party organisation before being allowed to carry the SBD logo.

Based in Coalville, Leicestershire, Hörmann UK is part of the Hörmann Group, a family-owned business that manufactures and supplies a wide range of high-quality, security-conscious doors and perimeter protection systems for both commercial and private real estate.

Founded in 1935, the Hörmann Group are a global operation and is Europe’s largest door manufacturer, having delivered more than twenty million garage doors to customers worldwide. Alongside being the market leader in domestic garage and entrance doors, Hörmann also supplies industry-leading industrial doors and an extensive range of loading bay technology.

As a fourth-generation family-owned and run business, the Hörmann Group have always taken their social and environmental responsibility seriously. The objective of successive generations of the family has been to hand over a financially, ethically sound business that provides a green platform in sustainable manufacturing for future generations to come.

With over one million homes built to SBD standards, and witnessing reductions in crime of up to 87%, SBD plays a hugely significant role in the planning process, continuing with their aim to design out crime by good design.

Doug Skins, Development Officer at Secured by Design added: 
“Hörmann UK have an impressive range of high-quality security products, we are delighted to continue working alongside them for many more years to come”.
Secured by Design was established over 30 years ago and works with many partner organisations ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, right through to local authorities, housing associations, architects, developers and manufacturers. SBD also maintains close links with standards authorities and certification bodies to ensure it remains up to date with emerging criminal trends.

There are currently many hundreds of SBD member companies producing thousands of attack resistant crime prevention products across 30 different crime categories. See the full range of SBD member companies and their product categories here:
