Belfast-based Secure Ring Global has renewed its membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the UK police crime prevention initiative. Secure Ring, pictured, has been designed to combat distraction or doorstep burglary, giving users confidence in security when they open their door.
The ring feature is suitable for those with visual impairments or dexterity issues, the firm adds, as it fits over the door handle. The magnetic housing ensures that Secure Ring can be stowed when not engaged. And the restrictor bar combined with the chain helps to restrict access when opening the door. The ring comes in white to suit most door and ironmongery finishes.
Secure Ring is the makers add suitable for uPVC and composite doors as it is fitted without the need to drill into the door. Drilling into a uPVC or composite door would have a negative impact on the manufacturer’s warranty. Though the product was designed for uPVC / composite doors it can also be fitted to wood or metal providing the door has a handle or lever.
Secure Ring achieved the Police Preferred Specification in 2013, and has kept it ever since.
SBD Senior Development Officer Kenny McHugh said: “I am pleased that Secure Ring have renewed their membership with Secured by Design. They produce a unique security product and their continued membership emphasises their continued commitment to household safety and security.”
And Elaine McKeown of Secure Ring Global said: “The SBD accreditation is vital to Secure Ring’s success and underlines our commitment to helping in the fight against doorstep burglary, which normally affects the most vulnerable in society. However, in reality, every home owner with a uPVC door is immediately vulnerable once they open the door so investing in a Secure Ring may be money well spent.”
