Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions says it has become the first company in the UK to have aluminium rooflights listed by Secured by Design.
The manufacturer’s Lantern 2.0 product was successfully tested to STS 222 which is a security test approved by SBD. The accreditation details the requirements for burglary resistance for construction products including windows, curtain walling, security grilles, garage doors and roller shutters.
Technical director Winston Osborne said: “We work hard to ensure that our products are of the very highest quality in design, efficiency and security and we are very pleased that this flagship police initiative has recognised our efforts by naming us as the first ever aluminium roof lanterns to be Secured by Design.”
The company says its secured pressure plated system offers a higher level of security than a snap on cap, favoured by some manufacturers.
