Secured by Design
Secured by Design is best described as a project that has been put together and is run by the Association of Chief Police Officers. The project focuses on improving the design of windows, doors, and other home improvement materials in order to provide more security and better design to homes in Scotland. Northern Scotland Joinery only uses doors and windows that have Secured by Design certification thanks to our Veka profile supplier*.
Secured by Design products have been described by the ACPO as one of the best ways to improve security, ensure that residents feel safe, and improve the overall lifeline for a building, due to a decrease in any criminal activity.
Here at Northern Scotland Joinery we do our part to improve the safety of Scotland residents by offering products with the following certifications:
- BS 7950: 1997 Specification for enhanced security performance of casement and tilt/turn windows for domestic applications.
- BS PAS 24-1: 1999 Enhanced security performance requirements for door assemblies – Part 1: Single leaf, external door assemblies to dwellings.
