“We recognise the value of Secured by Design”: Heron Joinery renews membership with SBD
Heron Joinery has renewed its membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the National Police Crime Prevention initiative.
Heron Joinery, part of the award winning construction and property development company Heron Bros, specialize in creating premium bespoke timber doors and windows. Heron Joinery work with leading consultant architects to ensure their windows and doors meet the latest demands of construction technology while maintaining an elegant design and multi-functional features.
Heron Bros is a family owned business formed by six brothers in 1956 in Draperstown, Northern Ireland. The company grew and diversified to reflect their keen interests in construction, land & property development, specialist joinery manufacture, quarrying and building supplies.
Between 1983 and 1985, Heron Bros grew to become the largest private landlord of industrial land in Northern Ireland. The company continues to grow and under the current leadership has expanded their construction, land & property and manufacturing operations across the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Heron Joinery said: “Heron Joinery understand the importance of considering security when designing and making windows and doors. We recognise the value of Secured by Design in providing confidence that Heron Joinery windows and doors are made to internationally recognised security standards”.
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.
