Security is a top priority for homeowners
Glazerite are delighted to announce 3 further additions to its Secured by Design range of products, namely Composite Doors, French Doors and the new VEKA “imagine” Bi-Folding Door all of which will be on our stand at the FiT show.
Secured by Design is the official UK Police initiative supporting the principles of designing out crime.
All products have to be tested to PAS24:2012 by a certified test house for acceptance in the scheme.
Our Full range of SBD products now covers:
- Tilt & Turns
- Vertical Sliders
- Single Resi Doors
- French Doors
These are part M wheel chair compliant which is critical in new build applications, a number of fabricators have SBD on French Doors but it does not cover part M.
- Composite Door
In both bevelled and fully-sculptured profiles.
- Bi-Folding Doors
There are only 2 other fabricators of PVC-u bi-folding Doors currently approved for SBD according to their website.
- Patio Doors
A number of fabricators / installers have very few items accredited, and are happy to promote SBD compliance, however this may only be applicable to their windows. A homeowners top priority is security and installers can now provide a solution for all applications from one supplier.
According to SBD “residents living on Secured by Design Developments are half as likely to be burgled”.
SBD is becoming more and more specified as a mandatory requirement in tenders for refurbishment and we can now offer the complete solution for any dwelling, why should it just be applied to a Casement Window or Front / Back Door? When French or Bi-folding doors are equally as vulnerable if not more!
