We’ve Renewed Our Secured By Design Membership

At Robust we take security extremely seriously. We want our customers to know that it’s of paramount importance to us.

That’s why we are delighted to announce that we have renewed our membership with Secured by Design for the tenth year running.

Secured by Design (SBD) is the official police security initiative. Owned by the UK Police Service and has the specific aim of reducing crime and increasing safety for businesses and individuals.

At Robust UK we offer two product ranges with Secured by Design accreditation – TUFF-DOR and SECUR-DOR.

Every security door in these ranges are specially constructed to individual project requirements and feature internal reinforcement. They are designed to resist a sustained attack from a wide range of tools, offering a physical barrier to deter and delay intruders for a specified period of time.

Sales Director Paul Williams said: “Our continued partnership with Secured By Design has allowed us to provide our customers with a high level of security and peace of mind that our steel door solutions are secure and of the highest quality. The support and expertise of the Design Out Crime Officers (DOCOs) is crucial in offering an independent security assessment allowing end users to know that the Police Preferred Specifications have been adhered to.”

Hazel Goss, Secured by Design, commented: “It has been a pleasure to renew contracts with Robust, who have been members of Secured by Design since 2013. They offer a great range of Steel doorsets covering various security ratings and styles. I am looking forward to many more years working alongside them.”

SBD aims to improve the physical security of buildings and the surrounding area using products such as doors, windows, locks and walling systems along with fencing systems that meet the SBD Police Preferred Specification security requirements.

SBD work with partner organisations, ranging from the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities through to local authorities, housing associations, developers and manufacturers, standards and certification bodies.

SBD is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK, through the Police Preferred Specification. It’s a product-based accreditation scheme which was developed more than 20 years ago, It provides a recognised standard for all security products that effectively deter and reduce crime. SBD work with manufacturers and standards authorities to ensure that security standards are current and updated to keep pace with emerging crime trends.
