Secured by design

Secured by Design is the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of ‘designing ouSecurebydesignt crime’ by use of effective crime prevention and security standards for a wide range of products and applications.

Only products which have been tested and meet the required technical standard can be awarded the Police Preferred Specification. Research has indicated that Secured by Design usage can reduce burglary by up to 50% and criminal damage by 25%.

Seceuroglide Excel has been awarded the prestigious Secured by Design Police Preferred Specification status by many years of hard work on redesigning and improving an already very good product to a level where the required test by the LPCB was passed with flying colours. Bear in mind 95% of products tested by the LPCB (The Loss Prevention Certification Board) fail!
