Reynaers at Home ‘designs out crime’ for homeowners with Secured by Design status
A police initiative to reduce crime through design has given coveted accreditation to Reynaers at Home’s range of high quality windows and doors.
Reynaers at Home is one of the first aluminium systems companies that has achieved the desirable Secured by Design ‘Police Preferred Specification’ for both its sliding patio doors and bifold doors. Reynaers window products are also accredited so homeowners can be safe in the knowledge that Reynaers at Home’s windows and doors offer not only beautiful designs but also top security.
Secured by Design is a crime prevention initiative operated by the Police Services of the United Kingdom, which aims to utilise design principles and products in the built environment that reduce the risk of crime. Products covered by the award include Reynaers’ versatile CP 130, a lift and slide aluminium patio door that is contemporary in appearance and combines high weather performance with great aesthetics and CF 77, which is an innovative bi-fold door, the SL variant of which has incredibly slim sight lines.
Within Reynaers at Home’s range of window products the versatile Concept System has also been awarded Secured by Design and comes with various opening options, weather and thermal performances, depending on your requirements.
Exhaustive testing of all systems via an independent test house proved that they met all the criteria set out within the required security standards.
Head of Marketing at Reynaers Hugh Moss says: “Security, architectural design and energy efficiency are all essential elements in the homes of today and we are proud to be the only aluminium systems company that has achieved the highly coveted Secured by Design approval for our sliding and sliding folding systems.
“Working in our state-of-the-art design and testing facility, our hugely experienced product development team go to great lengths to ensure that our products meet and exceed the latest standards.”
Richard Childs, Managing Director at Secured by Design, said: “Crime and the fear of crime have a considerable impact on the lives of individuals and their wider communities. We shouldn’t underestimate the role good planning and design has to play in both reducing crime and giving people peace of mind. Reynaers has shown their commitment to their clients’ security by getting these products tested and certificated to the highest standards.”
