West Midlands based UK Security Doors have renewed their membership with Secured by Design, the official police security initiative.
From their West Bromwich base, UK Security Doors design, manufacture and install bespoke aluminium doors, windows, and curtain walls for clients across the whole of the UK. The company produces two basic ranges, both of which can be customised with a wide variety of designs, styles, hardware, and colour, giving customers numerous configurations to choose from.
UK Security Doors have a number of Secured by Design accredited products across both their Signature and ThermSecure ranges. The Signature range is a patented system profile, designed and applied specifically to the social housing market. The range features prominently in refurbishment of buildings, including healthcare facilities (NHS trusts), education facilities and office blocks. The ThermSecure range is utilised for any construction required to meet new-build building regulations and includes any building with thermal properties such as schools, retirement homes and heated communal areas.
The combination of ThermSecure and Secured by Design accredited is fairly unique within the door manufacturing industry, making UK Security Doors a market leader in the manufacture of doors suitable for both refurbishment projects and new builds.
For both the Signature and ThermSecure ranges, there are two steps to Secured by Design certification. Doors must first meet a basic level PAS24 and then enhanced security features, required by law for new builds, help the profiles to achieve STS202 BR2 with a higher level of enhanced security. At this level, the doors are subjected to more brutal and sustained testing to ensure they meet the level of security and safety required for social housing, council buildings, housing associations, offices, and other locations particularly subject to high levels of vandalism.
Jason Haycock, Sales and Contracts Manager for UK Security Doors, said: “We are delighted to have renewed our Secured by Design membership. As a company, we have a real dedication to our clients to provide them with market leading service and quality. We listen to the real-world issues that Contracts Managers, Asset/Maintenance Managers and Quantity Surveyors are experiencing and apply them to our range, which has led us to producing one of the most comprehensive scopes for aluminium security doors in the UK.”
Ruari Robertson, Secured by Design, commented: “I am thrilled that UK Security Doors have renewed their valued membership for another three years. I look forward to working with them during this time to further enhance our relationship.”
