Secured by Design is part of Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (PCPI), the UK police-owned body that works on behalf of Police and Crime Commissioners and chief constables to deliver a range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives. PCPI is a not-for-profit organisation and board members include senior police officers.
Secured by Design plays a crime prevention role in the planning process to ‘design out’ crime in a range of building sectors. It has achieved some significant successes including one million homes built to SBD standards.
Urmet door entry and access control products have been tested with doors by Premier Security & Fire Consultants Ltd – the UK supplier of Secured by Design community entrance steel door sets.
All products must be subjected to testing and auditing by an accredited third-party body 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.
Managing Director of Urmet UK, Manji Gami, said: “We have always worked to the principles of Secured by Design and now take great pride in being an SBD member. Being a member of SBD gives our clients (developers, consultants and installers) the reassurance that working with Urmet UK means that they are working with a company where delivering the right solution matters.”
