Jedson continue affiliation with Secured by Design
Jedson Composite Doors Ltd, nationwide supplier of windows and doors, has renewed its membership of Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative.
Jedson’s Enhanced Security Apartment Eco Frame Composite Doorset Range, Enhanced Security Composite Doorset Range and Deceuninck 2500 / 2800 PVC-U Window Range have all achieved the Police Preferred Specification standard.
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.
SBD Development Officer Alfie Hosker said: "I am delighted that Jedson have renewed with us once again, they have been with Secured by Design for well over a decade now. To have such a quality, family orientated company, producing products accredited to our Police Preferred Specification is testimony to their determination that their products be manufactured to excellent standards and specifications."
Anne Davies from Jedson, said: “We feel it’s important to our customers that we achieve the Police Preferred Specification on our windows and doors. Our SBD status is the stamp of approval that our products are designed with security in mind, which in turn offers peace of mind not only to our customers, but to us as the manufacturer as well”.
