A Secured by Design addition to the Salford Skyline

Local residents in Salford will have noticed the appearance of a new twenty-three storey residential tower block in the New Bailey region known as ‘C1’.

Built by Morgan Sindall PLC for Muse Developments Limited, C1 includes all those security features recommended by Secured by Design, the national police crime prevention initiative which has been working to increase the security standards in new homes built across the UK since 1989. 

All windows and balcony doors in the project are SBD certified uni_one® timber/aluminium Composite Windows, supplied by Uniform Architectural Limited. This means that only safety glass has been used, whether toughened or laminated, double or triple glazed, which in turn ensures higher acoustic reduction and heat insulation. This keeps residents home safer, warmer and quieter.

Chris Dixon, Sales & Marketing Director at Uniform Architectural, said: “We are proud to have been selected for this project, due to the high technical performance required from our uni_one® composite windows and balcony doors, in terms of acoustics, security, thermal insulation and long-term low maintenance.”

Lyn Poole, Secured by Design, commented: “It’s always great to read good news stories that involve our SBD members and their Police Preferred Specification products. Uniform Architectural are an established firm in the Southwest, supplying the entire UK and have been a part of the Secured by Design member family for a decade”.
