Richard Hammond, Sales Director at Universal Trade Frames, said: “Our Secured by Design membership underlines our dedication to top-tier standards and fabrication quality. Our innovative Unibar solution, featuring a low U-value and fully welded RCM reinforcing, has distinguished us as pioneers in the field. Our innovative approach led to us being the first Epwin fabricator to receive both PAS24:2022 and BS6375 certifications (prerequisites to SBD membership), without the need for steel reinforcing, positioning Universal as pioneers within the industry. 

“We display the SBD logo with an immense degree of pride and appreciate the Kudos it affords us. Long may the relationship continue”. 

Hazel Goss, Secured by Design said: “It has been a pleasure to have Universal Trade Frames renew their membership with Secured by Design.  Having been members with us since 2018, they have continued to manufacture an excellent range of doors and windows for the domestic markets. I am really looking forward to working alongside them for even more years to come and watching them develop even further as long-standing members.”
