SBD Development Officer Doug Skins said: “It’s great to have Garrard Windows renew their Secured by Design membership, reaffirming their commitment to safety and security in the industry”.
Managing Director Steve Leek of Garrard Windows said: “Although the SBD accreditation is mainly to show a high standard of security, our customers feel it shows that Garrard Windows are not just ‘another trade fabricator’, as we are clearly able to reliably manufacture to the most stringent of standards”.
SBD is a police-owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service throughout the UK to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives.
SBD plays a significant crime prevention role in the planning process to design out crime in a wide range of building sectors. It has achieved some significant success including one million homes built to SBD standards with reductions in crime of up to 87%.
SBD have many partner organisations, ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and the Police Service through to local authorities, housing associations, developers and manufacturers and work closely with standards and certification bodies to ensure that their publicly available standards actually meet the needs of the police and public alike.
Products must be subjected to vigorous testing and auditing by an accredited third party organisation before being allowed to carry the SBD logo – this is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security related products in the UK.
