Secured by Design is owned by the UK Police Service and works to improve the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings, with the specific aim to reduce crime and help people live more safely. SBD is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK.
Following vigorous product testing and auditing by an accredited third-party organisation, Window Supply Company have achieved SBD’s Police Preferred Specification (PPS) on their innovative Casement and Tilt and Turn window ranges.

With over one million homes built to SBD standards, witnessing reductions in crime of up to 87%, SBD plays a hugely significant role in the process of designing out crime by good design. As a result, sustainable reductions in crime have been witnessed each and every year.
Secured by Design was established over 30 years ago and works with many partner organisations ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, right through to local authorities, housing associations, architects, developers and manufacturers. SBD also maintains close links with standards authorities and certification bodies to ensure it remains up to date with emerging criminal trends.
By working closely with the aforementioned local authorities and registered housing associations, as well as builders and developers, SBD can ensure that their police crime prevention standards are incorporated in builds from the initial concept and design stage, right through to construction and completion.
Police forces throughout the UK have specially trained Designing Out Crime Officers (DOCOs) who offer police designing out crime and Secured by Design advice free of charge.
There are currently many hundreds of SBD member companies producing thousands of attack resistant crime prevention products across 30 different crime categories.
