Ian Smith, Marketing Sales and Marketing Manager, Vista Panels, said: “Continuing our SBD membership underlines our dedication to top-tier standards. It is an incredibly important accreditation to have if you are supplying door sets into commercial, newbuild and social housing markets. It also gives domestic installers further affirmation the product they are selling to homeowners is of the highest security standards, and as this is our 18th year with SBD we certainly feel we have come of age together with the initiative.”

Hazel Goss, Secured by Design, commented: “It has been a pleasure to renew membership with Vista Panels and Xtreme Doors, who have been members with Secured by Design since 2006. They offer a fantastic range of doors and windows for the domestic market. I am looking forward to many more years working alongside them.”
