Secured by Design


We were the first company to produce timber doorsets with the Secure by Design (SBD) license. SBD Licencees and all of our security products are Q-mark certified with BM TRADA (Chiltern Dynamics) which covers PAS24:2012, DD171 and BS7950/6375.

We have additional test evidence concerning operational life, acoustic, thermal and fire properties.




Our Secured by Design doorset go through many tests before they can be certified. The doorset tested as a unit is attacked using a variety of methods to expose any weakness it may have. Take a look at our short video which gives you a flavour of what our doors go through to be certified Secured by Design.
