SBD ‘widest range’
CUSTOMADE GROUP has signed what it says is the widest ranging Secured by Design agreement ever, with now 31 of its aluminium and PVCu windows and door systems recently achieving an SBD licence.
sales and marketing director Gareth Thomas explained: “This development is all about delivering increased sales opportunities across a complete range of products for customers, whilst offering complete confidence to the end user when choosing accredited products.
“The Secured by Design Police Preferred Specification is the only police accreditation for security related products in the UK and it is only awarded to businesses that meet rigorous police security requirements. In an era where security plays a greater part in the decision-making process, installers can stand out from their competitors by offering a wide range of independently accredited products that give the homeowner total peace of mind.”
To gain Secured by Design accreditation, windows and doors must achieve PAS24 - the enhanced security requirement for the UK. This involves passing several attack tests to ensure that products are resilient against intrusion.
Customade Group says its installers have reported a rise in orders and repeat business since the introduction of PAS24 accredited products.
