When it comes to doors, security is always a high priority. That’s why we ensure our products are secure by design.
If you’ve been considering a bifold door, but are concerned about safety, then we can reassure you. We use accredited products to ensure our doors meet the highest security standards set out by Secured by Design.
What is Secured by Design?
Secured by Design (SBD) is a police security organisation that works with police forces to deliver a range of crime prevention initiatives to make homes more secure.
SBD produce a series of design guides to advise on standards to assist the building, design and construction industry to incorporate security into developments to comply with the Building Regulations in England, Scotland and Wales and meet the requirements of SBD.
SBD also works with industry bodies and manufacturers to raise standards in product manufacture. Working alongside the Police Service in the UK, the aim of SBD is to achieve sustainable reductions in crime through design and other approaches.
Products like doors and windows have to be certified by a UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) certification body before being considered for SBD’s Police Preferred Specification.
Excellent Doors accredited products
Excellent Doors offers a range of doors that have achieved this accreditation. SBD guides specify that any door that allows direct access into the home, e.g., front and rear doors, interconnecting garage doors, French doors, bi-fold or sliding patio doors, should be certificated to one of a list of set standards.
Our bifold doors are highly secure with multi-point locking mechanisms that operate on the inside. Our sliding doors have multi-point locking mechanisms vertically up and down for maximum strength. We also offer uPVC doors with anti-snap locks fitted as well as deadbolts for extra security.
Increase your door security
If you’re worried about the security of your doors, then we can help.
We offer free quotations and can advise on the best product for your needs. If you want to increase security, then a steel door will give greater protection than a wood, uPVC or composite one.
Our aluminium bifold doors offer a high level of security and come with reinforced glass.
The strength of aluminium
If you want to enhance the security of your home but want a stylish bifold door, then the natural strength of aluminium is the solution.
The strength of aluminium frames allows skilled craftsmen to produce narrow profile bifold and sliding doors that allow the maximum amount of natural light into a room. This structure gives you a door that’s tough and secure but at the same time slimline and stylish.
Excellent Doors offers a range of aluminium bifold doors that include multi-point locking mechanisms as standard. They also carry the prestigious BSI Kitemark, a worldwide trusted symbol of quality.
Plus, aluminium doors are not only stronger and more hardwearing than uPVC, they have the added advantage of being corrosion free.
