With increasing numbers of homeowners using their garages for storage or converting them into leisure areas and additional living space, safety and security is high on the list of priorities. An automated, insulated sectional garage door from Hörmann UK offers the ideal solution as they are supplied with Secured by Design (SBD) as standard.
Established in 1989, Secured by Design was created by the UK Police Force and is the flagship security accreditation. To achieve the standard, Hörmann sectional doors have undergone stringent security and safety tests to ensure they have been developed with the security of the customer in mind.
Hörmann LPU 42 and LPU 67 automated sectional garage doors have been designed and manufactured to prevent and discourage criminal intrusion and are now supplied with SBD as standard. To obtain the SBD accreditation the doors have been verified through independent testing which involved a prolonged brute force attack, demonstrating the strength and robust nature of the door. The Hörmann sectional doors passed in their standard format with no modifications or additions required, and SBD is available on the full range of door sizes offered. Hörmann are the only manufacturer of sectional doors in the UK to be awarded the accreditation.
For the SBD accreditation to be valid, the garage doors should be automated using a Hormann operator, installed behind the brickwork of the opening and should not include any glazing options or external handles. To obtain the SBD certification the completed installation is simply registered with Hörmann.
No matter how you use your garage, for added security and peace of mind choose a sectional garage door from Hörmann with Secured by Design as standard.
