What is Secured by Design?

Secured by Design is the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of 'designing out crime'. This is achieved by use of effective crime prevention and security standards for a wide range of products and applications.

Only products which have been tested and meet the required technical standard can be awarded with the Police Preferred Specification.

Research has indicated that Secured by Design usage can reduce burglary by up to 50% and criminal damage by 25%.

Secured by Design Garage Doors

We have an evolving number of Secured by Design products at The Garage Door Centre.

SeceuroGlide Excel is Secured by Design specified SWS Qompact roller door is Secured by Design specified Teckentrup side hinged garage doors are Secured by Design specified

The Seceuroglide Excel has been awarded the prestigious Seceured by Design Police Preferred Specification status. This was achieved after many years of hard work on redesigning and improving an already very good product to a level where the LPCB test was passed with flying colours. Bear in mind 95% of products tested by the LPCB fail!

We also offer the Qompact, a roller door with the very best security levels due to its original manufacturing as a hurricane-proof door!

If you are looking for an Up and Over garage door, we offer a range manufactured by UK manufacturer Garador with Secured by Design specification.

Side hinged continues to be a very popular door choice in the UK, and Teckentrup have recently launched the 62-2 range. This selection of side hinged doors can be specified with the Secured by Design certification, and boasts various robust security features.
