Why you should look out for the ‘Secured by Design’ standard when buying new windows...


With almost half a million domestic burglaries recorded in the UK in 2017 (ONS), it’s no surprise that home security is fast-becoming a major consideration for home owners when making purchasing decisions.

Replacement Windows

There’s nothing more important than the safety and security of your home and family, and it seems home improvement consumers are willing to invest accordingly in the latest advances in technology to ensure the products they choose act as a robust deterrent for would-be intruders.

Established in 1989, Secured by Design (SBD) is the title for a group of national police projects focusing on the design and security for new and refurbished homes, as well as the acknowledgement of quality security products and crime prevention projects. It supports the principles of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and processes. To help you make the right choices when it comes to protecting your home, you should look out for the ‘Secured by Design’ Police Preferred logo on security products and services.

For example, the Extreme Window is engineered to the highest specification to provide maximum performance, with security very firmly at the forefront of its identity. Copyrighted to Conservatory Outlet the fabricator and window supplier to Styleglaze, the window boasts five unique selling points – Extreme Comfort, Extreme Style, Extreme Peace of Mind, Extreme Warranty, and of course, Extreme Security. To help home owners easily recognise and understand this, the fabricator is proud to have its leading window tested to the Secured by Design standard – the official UK Police flagship initiative.

At Styleglaze we recognise the importance of offering trusted products that provide not only protection, but peace of mind, and that’s why our fabricator Conservatory Outlet have developed a signature window – the Extreme – to carry the Secured by Design badge. Giving you the confidence that security has been engineered into your window from conception right through to installation.

We’re pleased to supply some of the market’s most secure locking systems, components, hardware and frames, each working together to ensure the complete Extreme window provides ultimate peace of mind, without compromising on style.
