Established in 1989, Secured by Design (SBD) is the title for a group of national police projects focusing on the design and security of new and refurbished homes, commercial premises and car parks, as well as the acknowledgement of quality security products and crime prevention projects. It supports the principles of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and processes.
Research has shown that developments which use products and materials that meet Secured by Design standards are up to 75% less likely to be burgled and show a reduction of 25% in criminal damage
Secured by Design member status is awarded to companies producing security products that pass standards and tests nominated by the police service. The standards and related tests demonstrate the product’s effectiveness in preventing or reducing crime, usually by resistance to physical attack.
Meesons are proud to supply a range of SBD accredited Security Portals, which act as a deterrent to potential intruders looking to gain access to a building or secure area, whilst offering a high level of resistance against physical attack.
