Stertil Achieves Secured by Design Accreditation for Overhead Sectional Doors

Stertil, a leading supplier of industrial doors, is proud to announce that its Thermadoor sectional overhead doors have recently achieved the highly prestigious Secured by Design (SBD) accreditation. This significant milestone underscores their commitment to providing high-performance security solutions for building access across the UK.

Secured by Design (SBD) is the official police security initiative that works to improve the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings. It is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK. Developed 25 years ago, SBD provides a recognised standard for all security products that effectively deter and reduce crime.

Achieving SBD accreditation is a key part of Stertil's goal to deliver high-quality, reliable, and secure industrial doors.

Stertil's overhead sectional doors are suitable for all industrial applications and many commercial and specialist uses, such as loading bay dock doors used in distribution centres that handle large volumes of goods.

Featuring optional anti-lift locking devices and interlocked shoot-bolts, customers can customise the doors to suit their specific security requirements.

Security is further enhanced with robust door panels made of a double skin of galvanised steel, insulated with polyurethane foam infill, which bonds to the steel for additional strength. Panel edges are reinforced with strong galvanised steel, providing a secure mounting for the wheel carriage and hinge assembly.

In addition to enhanced security, Stertil’s overhead sectional doors offer important safety benefits, including finger protection at panel-to-panel joints and cable break safety devices, boosting operational safety and reducing the risk of accidents.

The doors provide excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, ensuring energy efficiency and noise reduction. They are available in manual or power-operated models, catering to various operational preferences. Each door is purpose-made to the required sizes and can be tailor-made with a range of finishes and optional features, ensuring they meet specific customer requirements.

"Achieving Secured by Design accreditation is a major step forward for Stertil.” said Andrew Georgiou, General Manager of Stertil Dock and Door Products UK. “This recognition not only validates the high-security standards of our sectional overhead doors but also offers our customers greater peace of mind.”

“Knowing that our doors meet the Police Preferred Specification and has been accredited in this regard by Secured by Design, means that our customers can trust they are investing in products that provide superior protection against unauthorised access and burglary."
