Paul Smith of Brett Martin Daylight Systems said: “Rooflight security is an important consideration, especially for residential applications, so we’re delighted to be able to offer Secured by Design approved products within our extensive Mardome modular rooflight range.  

“It’s particularly exciting to be the first rooflight manufacturer to hold Secured by Design approval for both our Mardome Glass flat glass and Mardome Trade polycarbonate rooflights, with or without integral uPVC kerb – a unique stride forward, making it even easier for our customers to meet all of their rooflight requirements”.

SBD Development Officer Hazel Goss said: “I had the privilege of signing up Brett Martin Daylight Systems as new members of Secured by Design.  They make great rooflights and I am looking forward to working alongside them for many years to come”.

SBD is part of Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (PCPI), a police owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives across the UK. PCPI is a not-for-profit organisation and Board Members include senior police officers from each of the four Home Nations who control and direct the work PCPI carries out on behalf of the Police Service.

SBD plays a significant crime prevention role in the planning process to design out crime in a wide range of building sectors. It has achieved some significant success including one million homes built to SBD standards with reductions in crime of up to 87%.

SBD have many partner organisations, ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and the Police Service through to local authorities, housing associations, developers and manufacturers and work closely with standards and certification bodies to ensure that their publicly available standards actually meet the needs of the police and public alike.

Products must be subject to rigorous testing and additionally be fully certificated by an independent, third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) before being allowed to carry the SBD logo - this is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security-related products in the UK.
