Alufold Direct Ltd is a member of Secured by Design, a flagship UK police initiative to help 'design out' crime through the use of high-quality innovative products and processes.
In order to achieve Secured by Design status, an assortment of the AluFoldDirect range of doors and windows had to adhere to the organisation's rigorous test standards. A full list of the exact range available from AluFoldDirect under the Secured by Design scheme can be found by clicking on this link below or downloading the list on the download provided opposite. AluFoldDirect offer both SBD products and other products that are not SBD.
Secured by Design is the only form of Police approval for products in the UK. The principles of Secured by Design have been proven to reduce the risk of crime and the fear of crime. In West Yorkshire research demonstrated Secured by Design award newly built developments are up to 75% less likely to experience crime. In Glasgow, research demonstrated Secured by Design refurbished developments are up to 63% less likely to experience crime. Householders who aren't offered security recommendations after a burglary are 69% more likely to suffer a repeat incident than those who are offered advice.
The Association of British Insurers predicted that in one year alone, some 700,000 burglaries could be thwarted if appropriate security devices were installed, representing an annual saving of more than £1.97 billion.
Secured by Design's membership scheme currently includes over 400 member companies whose products have met the required standards. The London 2012 Olympic Park and the 2014 Commonwealth Games Village have both been awarded full Secured by Design status. Secured by Design is owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).
