Doors you’ll feel secure with
Peace of mind matters. That’s why it’s important to us that people feel safe and secure in their homes or commercial premises.
Secured By Design gives you that peace of mind – and the reassurance that our commitment to security has been recognised by professionals.
Donaldson Door Systems is a Secured By Design member company, which means that our security products pass not just our own quality controls, but also standards and tests selected by the police service. Being awarded this status means that our products are proven to be effective in preventing and reducing crime.
Our Secured By Design external timber doors are manufactured to the PAS24 standard, which means they have been designed to protect low-risk properties from opportunist break-ins by forced entry using hand-tools. Security features on these doors include a shielded door and frame, a three-point locking system and anti-intrusion bolts.
More about Secured By Design
The scheme was established in 1989 by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACP) and is made up of a number of national police projects focused on the design and security of new and refurbished properties. It covers both domestic and commercial premises.
Secured By Design supports the National Planning Policy Framework’s aim of creating “safe and accessible environments where crime and disorder, and the fear of crime, do not undermine quality of life or community cohesion”.
The principles of the scheme have been proven to reduce the risk of crime and the fear surrounding it.
