Secure Ring wins coveted Secured by Design Accreditation

Secure Ring was recently awarded the Secured By Design accreditation making it the only police approved door chain available on the market. And what makes Secure Ring unique is its suitability for
upvc/composite doors. Secure Ring, unlike traditional door chains, does not require to be drilled into the upvc/composite door thereby keeping the manufacturer’s warranty intact. A win, win for everyone! Secured by Design is the initiative from the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) that aims to reduce crime through effective environmental design. The scheme also calls for the installation of security products that meet police- approved standards.

The SBD logo is the only symbol that guarantees national Police approval of a product, providing architects, planners, specifiers, builders and end customers with reassurance that it provides a realistic level of resistance to criminal attack. It is widely recognised within the building industry and is increasingly being listed as a mandatory requirement in tenders.

Gaining SBD approval for Secure Ring is a significant achievement, demonstrating our commitment to safety and sustainability and providing our valued customers with reassurance that our product matches performance claims. Securing SBD accreditation provides Secure Ring with a unique competitive advantage and reiterates its status as a first-class product.

Secure Ring was invented in Northern Ireland following direct requests from elderly people who felt vulnerable when opening their upvc front door. There simply was not a door chain on the market that was suitable for upvc. Secure Ring is totally unique in that it has been specifically designed for upvc/composite doors and is the only door chain with the Secured By Design accreditation. Secure Ring is suitable for the elderly, vulnerable or infirm as well as the wider community and comes in a range of colours: white, bronze and black.
