Teckentrup Door Solutions joins Secured by Design


We’re pleased to part of the Secured by Design initiative and thought we’d share the release from the Secured by Design - Police Crime Prevention Initiatives' Press & Public Relations Team:

"Teckentrup Door Solutions is one of the latest companies to join Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative.

Teckentrup UK Limited, manufacturing and operating in Warrington, Cheshire, is part of the Teckentrup family of companies, a family business and one of the largest door producers in Europe.

Teckentrup joins SBD having achieved Police Preferred Specification accreditation for their Teckentrup 62 Security Hinged doorsets. You can find out more about the company and product here.

SBD Development Officer Hazel Goss said:

“Today I had the privilege of signing Teckentrup UK Limited as new members of Secured by Design. The company are based in Warrington and manufacture Security Doorsets and I am really looking forward to working alongside them as new products develop and are added to their current portfolio."

Jim Rodger, Managing Director of Teckentrup said: 

“Aligning Teckentrup and its products with such a high profile initiative fits perfectly into Teckentrup’s objective of leading the market with products that can be specified with confidence by its clients as compliant to current standards.”

SBD is part of Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (PCPI), a police owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives across the UK. PCPI is a not-for-profit organisation and Board Members include senior police officers from each of the four Home Nations who control and direct the work PCPI carries out on behalf of the Police Service.

SBD plays a significant crime prevention role in the planning process to design out crime in a wide range of building sectors. It has achieved some significant success including one million homes built to SBD standards with reductions in crime of up to 87%. 

SBD have many partner organisations, ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and the Police Service through to local authorities, housing associations, developers and manufacturers and work closely with standards and certification bodies to ensure that their publicly available standards actually meet the needs of the police and public alike.

Products must be subject to rigorous testing and additionally be fully certificated by an independent, third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) before being allowed to carry the SBD logo - this is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security-related products in the UK."
