Secured By Design

‘Secured by Design‘ is the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of ‘designing out crime’ through innovation and testing of security products in the marketplace.


‘Secured by Design’  focuses on real crime prevention for homes and commercial premises and promotes the use of security standards for a wide range of applications and security based products. The ‘Secured by Design’ status can be applied to the Novoferm – Berwick, Thornby & Naseby up & over garage doors.


Novoferm Secured by Design garage doors have spring assisted retractable action for smooth running. Factory fitted steel frames
as standard 70mm wide for retractable with a 45mm frame head. Novoferm Secured by Design Up & Over garage doors can only be
supplied in a pre-hung factory finished steel fixing frame, which makes installation simple and eliminates the need for a timber frame.


The principles have been proven to achieve a reduction of crime risk by up to 75%, by combining minimum standards of physical security and well-tested principles of natural surveillance and defensible space.


The long term objective of the secured by design initiative is to reduce burglary and crime in the UK by designing out crime through physical security and processes. It applies to how architects and developers approach new build projects, especially where larger construction projects are required. The entire scheme is scrutinised to ensure the best long term approach to safety and security within the scheme making the houses and other infrastrucure appealing to prospective inhabitants.
