Owen Dare, Founder Director at The Joinery Network, said: “The Joinery Network is all about improving both standards and opportunities for UK joiners. Lignum is a complete timber window and door system, designed so joinery companies can compete against others for sustainable products.

“We were keen to get Secured by Design certified as this is integral for joinery companies to reach wider market, looking to get into new build and extensions projects.

“Adding Secured by Design also offers Lignum an exclusive edge and credibility.”

Doug Skins, Secured by Design said: "I am delighted that The Joinery Network has joined Secured by Design, with their Lignum system of timber windows and doors having achieved SBD’s Police Preferred Specification. This is great news for small and medium joineries who wish to produce SBD windows and doors and I look forward to working with The Joinery Network over the coming years.”
