What is a Secured by Design door?

Many companies offer entrance doors with various accreditations claiming to provide the best in security standards. At Majestic Designs, we install a high security door with lock sets and cylinders that meet the Secured by Design standard.
Preventing crime in your area
Secured by Design is a police security initiative set up to prevent crime and promote home security. Working in conjunction with accredited test facilities and certification bodies; Secured by Design has been hugely successful across the UK. A Secured by Design door must meet enhanced security requirements for its:
- Locking system
- Door frame
- Glazed sections
- Door viewers, chains, and limiters
- Letter plates
Intensive testing procedures
At Majestic Designs, we install the Endurance composite door as our composite door of choice. The Endurance composite door is Secured by Design accredited and has been tested under the following guidelines:
- A persistent attack on the locking system with a crow bar and mole grips
- A manual attack on the whole door using chisels and brick bolsters for three minutes
- High impact testing at hinge points and locking points using a 50kg steel impactor
- Unlimited three minute attacks on the door cylinder with various tools including knives and screwdrivers
These tests are designed to replicate real methods used by burglars to create a true picture of the door’s security standards.
