“Having Secured by Design accreditation means a lot to us as a business”
East Yorkshire glazing specialists, EYG Commercial, have renewed their membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.
EYG was founded over 50 years ago and is one of the UK’s most respected specialists in the glazing sector and a market leader in fabrication and installation, with a trusted reputation for delivering projects on time and within budget.
EYG Commercial can design, manufacture and install a wide range of aluminium and uPVC products, including doors, windows, roof systems and curtain walling from its 65,000sq ft factory, with the capacity to manufacture large numbers of windows and doors for clients.
Paul Marsden, EYG’s Secured by Design Liaison, said: “Commercial clients set robust criteria before we bid for commercial works. For some building projects the Secured by Design scheme is needed before they will consider us for the work.
“Our products have to be tested and conform to rigorous standards such as PAS 24 before we can gain the SBD licence, and we are regularly audited to ensure we continue to manufacture to the highest standards and retain our licenses and accreditations.
“The main benefit of SBD is to ensure we are considered for jobs where SBD is a commercial requirement, and we can also display the logo on our website and marketing materials, giving confidence to our customers that all our SBD products are secure.”
EYG has worked on multi-million pound projects across the UK, from installing sound-proof windows in airport hotels, to glazing international airports and exclusive London apartment complexes.
The company works in all sectors, including newbuild developments, hotels and restaurants, student accommodation, education settings, hospitals and health centres, and retail.
EYG’s Managing Director Nick Ward added: “Having Secured by Design accreditation means a lot to us as a business, as it tells our commercial clients that we manufacture windows and doors to the highest security specifications. This gives them the peace of mind that our SBD products have passed stringent and rigorous testing.
“Being SBD-accredited is something we have worked hard for, and is a source of great pride.”
Alfie Hosker, Secured by Design, commented: “EYG offer a large range of Secured by Design Police Preferred Specification-accredited doorset and window products, suitable for use in a wide range of applications, both in uPVC and aluminium. EYG have been with us for nearly a decade now and this period of membership will take us into a second. I look forward to another successful period with them.”
