AMS achieve SBD on window and door systems

Secured by Design Secured by Design is the initiative from the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) that aims to reduce crime through effective environmental design. The scheme also calls for the installation of security products that meet police-approved standards. Manufacturers and installers whose products have been certified by an accredited testing body to the specified standards, can apply for SBD membership and licence to utilise the scheme’s logo. Further information on the scheme can be obtained by visiting The SBD logo is the only symbol that guarantees national Police approval of a product, providing architects, planners, specifiers, builders and end customers with reassurance that it provides a realistic level of resistance to criminal attack. It is widely recognised within the building industry and is increasingly being listed as a mandatory requirement in tenders. Utilising SBD accredited products helps developers meet new U.K. planning requirements so as to demonstrate what is being done to reduce crime. Planners recognise the effectiveness of Secured by Design and creating a development that is SBD compliant. Utilising SBD accredited building and security products is a quick and simple way to ensure compliance with new guidelines. Consumers and specifiers are also recognising that SBD provides an easy route to help identify (out of the many technical standards) that a product is an effective crime prevention measure. Gaining SBD approval on a number of our systems is a significant achievement, demonstrating our commitment to safety and sustainability whilst providing our valued customers with reassurance that our products match performance claims. Securing SBD accreditation provides AMS window and door systems with a unique competitive advantage and reiterates its status as a first-class product.
