Secured By Design is an initiative set up by the UK Police, supporting the principles of 'designing out crime' by using effective crime prevention methods. It also supports the Governments planning objective; the creation of secure, quality places where people wish to live or work.
At Climatec we have a large range of windows and doors that we have had rigorously tested to Enhanced Security standards. These have been awarded Q Marks by BM TRADA and subsequently been accredited as Police Preferred products under the Secured By Design initiative.

ENHANCED SECURITY PAS24: 2012
The BM TRADA Q Marks for Enhanced Security achieved by Climatec Windows, are given to those windows and doors tested specifically for security performance. The certificate is granted only on the basis that the PVCu profiles, screw fixings and hardware collectively meet the security requirements of the standard, as well as taking into consideration safety, means of escape, weather-tightness and mechanical performance. PAS24:2012 is the new standard which replaces BS7950 (Enhanced Security Windows), PAS 23 & 24 (Enhanced Security Doorsets) & BS 7412 (General Performance).
