Thinking of replacing your doors or windows

Alert message sent 25/09/2018 12:45:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Are you thinking of replacing your external doors or windows?
From a security aspect the police recommend choosing from products certified by Secured by Design.
They should be marked CERTIFIED BY. Not tested to, protects to or guaranteed up to.

They can be UPVC, wooden, aluminium, steel or composite.

These products have been approved by the National Police Chiefs Council and domestically, it requires that a knowledgeable person, equipped with hand tools cannot defeat the device for 15 minutes. This is usually sufficient for an intruder to give up without achieving entry.

They might be more expensive than other products on the market but should provide peace of mind for you.  

There are lots of other security products also certified by Secured by Design so check out their website, familiarise yourself with their logo and look out for it when purchasing security products.

Stay safe
