"Ahmarra has developed a range of Secured by Design internal apartment entrance doorsets”

One of the UK’s leading performance doorset manufacturers, Ahmarra Door Solutions, have renewed their membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.

The majority of Ahmarra’s work is for large scale, new build construction projects for schools, hospitals, airports, hotels, luxury homes, social housing and commercial properties. 


Ahmarra have dual certification compliance for both fire and security on their range of SBD accredited internal apartment entrance doorsets, providing peace of mind that the people, property and assets within the building are protected from opportunist thieves, vandalism, attack, fire and smoke.

In order to achieve independent, third-party certification, Ahmarra submitted sample doorsets for primary testing to a UKAS accredited testing facility.  The tests conducted demonstrated the doors ability to resist fire for at least 30 minutes, as well as an intruder’s attempts to gain entry to PAS 24 test standards. Third-party certification ensures doors not only meet stringent security standards, but continue to be manufactured to a consistent quality through regular audit checks.

Ahmarra have manufactured and installed thousands of internal entrance doors for council-led social housing projects and for high-end luxury apartments over recent years.

Vicki Boulton, Ahmarra’s Compliance Director, said: "Ahmarra has developed a range of Secured by Design (SBD) internal apartment entrance doorsets that meet PAS 24: 2016 standards. The security doors are certified under both the BM TRADA Q-Mark Enhanced Security and Q-Mark Fire Door Manufacture schemes. Specified by architects, contractors, housing developers, local authorities and leading social housing providers throughout London and the South East, we’ve manufactured and installed thousands of these bespoke doors in a range of homes - from luxury apartments through to sheltered housing".

Lyn Poole, Secured by Design, said: “Ahmarra have been a member company of SBD now for nine years, so it gives me great pleasure to say that they have renewed their membership for another three years, and I am looking forward to working alongside them over the coming years.

“There are many benefits to being an SBD member, such as hosting CPDs, opportunity to exhibit at exclusive SBD events like the National Training Event that police colleagues from around the country attend, our social media channels sharing regular updates on member companies news and so much more. Our media team love to shout about our members and their achievements with their Police Preferred Specification products like Ahmarra’s timber Flat Entrance Doorsets, which have enhanced security and fire rating”.
