Robust UK renew membership with Secured by Design

Robust UK's new state-of-the-art facility

Staffordshire door manufacturer, Robust UK, has renewed their membership with Secured by Design, the official police security initiative.

With over forty years of experience, Robust UK offers a wide range of custom-made steel door solutions across the UK, in both the industrial and commercial sectors. The company’s entire product range is manufactured at their Stoke-on-Trent site, which recently underwent a £2m expansion to enable all product manufacturing to take place in the UK. The investment allowed Robust UK to significantly increase production capacity and reduce shipping times while maintaining the same level of quality.

Furthermore, Robust UK announced another multimillion-pound investment earlier this year which will see them move to a new state-of-the-art manufacturing location in Newcastle-under-Lyme in Stoke-on-Trent, planned for late 2023.

Robust UK supplies steel doorsets to a wide variety of industries, including transport, education, health, housing, industrial, warehousing, and utilities markets, for both new build and refurbishment projects.
Robust UK offers two product ranges with Secured by Design accreditation – TUFF-DOR and SECUR-DOR. Every security door is specially constructed to individual project requirements and features internal reinforcement designed to resist a sustained attack from a wide range of tools, offering a physical barrier to deter and delay intruders for a specified period of time.

Paul Williams, Robust UK, said: 
“Our continued partnership with SBD has allowed us to provide our customers with a high level of security and peace of mind that our steel door solutions are secure and of the highest quality. The support and expertise of the Designing Out Crime Officers (DOCOs) is crucial in offering an independent security assessment, allowing end users to know that the Police Preferred Specification has been adhered to.”

Hazel Goss, Secured by Design, commented:
“It has been a pleasure to renew contracts with Robust, who have been members of Secured by Design since 2013. They offer a great range of Steel doorsets covering various security ratings and styles. I am looking forward to many more years working alongside them.”

Secured by Design (SBD) is owned by the UK Police Service with the specific aim of reducing crime and increasing safety for businesses and individuals.

SBD seeks 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.

SBD is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK, through the Police Preferred Specification - a product-based accreditation scheme developed over 20 years ago, which provides a recognised standard for all security products that effectively 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.
