Rooflight manufacturer Brett Martin Daylight Systems has renewed its membership with Secured by Design (SBD) for a further three years.
Following vigorous product testing and auditing by an accredited third-party organisation, the Coventry-based manufacturer has achieved Secured by Design’s Police Preferred Specification (PPS) on its product range, including the Flat Glass Rooflight, Glass Link Rooflight, and Mardome Trade Polycarbonate Rooflight, all of which are certified to meet the enhanced security requirements of PAS 24:2016.
Secured by Design is owned by the UK Police Service and works to improve the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings using products such as doors, windows, locks, walling systems, fencing systems, and many more security related products. SBD is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK.
With over one million homes built to SBD standards, witnessing reductions in crime of up to 87%, it plays a significant role in the process of designing out crime by good design. As a result, sustainable reductions in crime have been witnessed each and every year.
Paul Smith, head of product development at Brett Martin Daylight Systems said: “We are proud to continue our partnership with Secured by Design. Holding SBD approval for our standard fixed Flat Glass and Glass Link rooflights, and specific configurations of our Mardome Trade polycarbonate rooflights demonstrates our commitment to meeting the needs of homeowners who want to be assured that they can experience the benefits of high-quality overhead daylighting while remaining confident of the security of their home”.
