Roofglaze Rooflights join Secured by Design
Roofglaze, a leading manufacturer and supplier of rooflights and skylights, are proud to join Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative.
Established in 1999 and based in St Neots, Cambridgeshire, Roofglaze has a wealth of industry experience in the design, manufacture and installation of rooflights and skylight systems.
Roofglaze serves architects, main contractors, local authorities, roofing contractors and domestic customers across the UK and beyond. They work in partnership with world-leading rooflight system manufacturers, as well as offering their own market-leading Flatglass rooflights that are manufactured at their in-house facility.
Flatglass Protect+ rooflights are the company’s first SBD accredited product range, which has been achieved by engineering a specialist solution that uses a stronger, laminated inner glass pane and upgraded fixings to maximise security.

SBD Development Officer Doug Skins said: “I am very pleased to welcome Roofglaze to Secured by Design and that they have gone through the rigorous process of product certification, achieving our Police Preferred Specification standard. Doing so, demonstrates that Roofglaze’s Flatglass Protect+ rooflights offers an enhanced level of security”.
Chris Morgan, Managing Director of Roofglaze Rooflights, said: “Roofglaze are committed to designing rooflights that offer the highest standards of quality and security for all our customers, which is why we are immensely proud to have surpassed the stringent requirements of Secured by Design for our Flatglass Protect+ product range.
“As an industry-leading supplier of rooflights, our clients demand the highest levels of performance from our products, with the SBD logo offering a further layer of confidence that these levels are exceeded.
“We’re very proud to be affiliated with such a valuable initiative.”
SBD is a police-owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service throughout the UK to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives.
SBD plays a significant crime prevention role in the planning process to design out crime in a wide range of building sectors. It has achieved some significant success including one million homes built to SBD standards with reductions in crime of up to 87%.
SBD have many partner organisations, ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and the Police Service through to local authorities, housing associations, developers and manufacturers and work closely with standards and certification bodies to ensure that their publicly available standards actually meet the needs of the police and public alike.
Products must be subjected to vigorous testing and auditing by an accredited third party organisation before being allowed to carry the SBD logo – this is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security related products in the UK.
