Bereco Now Fully Licensed Member Of Secured By Design
The scheme is owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) and is the official title for a group of national police projects that focus directly on the reduction of crime through the specification of SBD approved products.
The main focus is at design stage ensuring that products supplied to both new build and refurbishment properties are in accordance with the requirements of SBD.
The main objective is to reduce crime and the fear of crime through the installation of windows and doors supplied by police approved companies. This is an initiative that has been around for the last 20 years and has been proven to reduce home burglaries by as much as 75%!
With fully licensed membership to the scheme we are able to supply joinery products that meet the standards required by SBD. Products are backed with 3rd party certification by leading independent UKAS accredited body BM TRADA. Products are tested to PAS 24:2012 – the enhanced security requirements for Doors and windows in the UK.
All products are subject to routine audits to ensure they continue to comply with the original product specification set out at design stage.
