Garador Guardian range Secured by Design

Secure your garage this winter with the UKs only Secured by Design up and over garage door. 

What is Secured by Design?

Secured by Design is the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of 'designing out crime' by use of effective crime prevention and security standards for a wide range of products and applications. To achieve such a status, a product must endure various tests and meet the technical requirements. 

Research indicated that products with a Secured by Design specification can reduce burglary by up to 50%, and criminal damage by 50%, allowing owners of such products to be assured of their garage's and home's security.

If you are interested in investing in an up and over garage door, it is vital to bear security in mind, and as the Garador Guardian range is the only of its kind - Secured by Design up and over doors - it is certainly an option to consider.

The features included to make the Guardian range Secured by Design include:

- Lock-body protection to re-inforce the garage door panel

- Anti-snap cylinder to prevent entry after a break-in attempt

- 8 braces on the rear of the door panel for extra protection against forced entry

- 4-point locking

- Improved lock security

- Steel sub-frame
