Complying with Secured By Design

Tags: Secured by Design   |   Added:

Secured By Design (SBD) is a Police initiative to design out crime by making properties and developments more secure. Research findings suggest that by working with local authorities, housing associations, landlords and residents; SBD not only reduces crime but provides efficiencies and cost savings for a number of stakeholders. 

Moreover SBD is not simply applicable to windows and external doorsets, but includes requirements for effective lighting, paving, planting, boundaries, etc. 

Secured by design logoHow do I comply with SBD?

  • SBD requires the manufacturer (not the systems supplier) of the windows and/or doorsets to be 3rd party certified - not only to PAS 24 but also 'Fit for Purpose' standards BS 7412 and the BS 6375 series. please note that from 1st October 2018, SBD will only accept products with independent 3rd party certification to the latest version of the standard PAS 24:2016*
  • Or alternatively the European burglary resistance standards EN 1627 -1630. Unlike PAS 24 the European standards are not pass/fail and have 6 different classifications. In the UK, class 2 is required for windows and class 3 for doorsets. In addition, the Euro standards do not include tests for cylinders or letterplates. Test evidence for DHF TS 007/008 will also be required. 
  • Other routes to compliance include Loss Prevention Standards (LPS) and Security Technical Standards (STS). Where specified, SBD covers most building types either domestic or commercial, whether they are newbuild or refurbishment. Further information can be found by downloading the SBD Design Guides in PDF format free or change by visiting http://www.securedbydesign.com/industry-advice-and-guides/#dsgngd
  •  A door which is either the primary or only means of escape in case of fire must have keyless egress (e.g. thumb turn cylinder). The manufacturer must demonstrate that this is part of the scope of the certified product range. 
  • SBD is a specification and not a standard. Providing a manufacturer can demonstrate that they are part of a 3rd party certification scheme with test evidence covering one of the methods described above, the SBD scheme requirement for windows and doorsets has been met. The manufacturer does not need to be a member of SBD.
