About Secured by Design
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 & refurbished homes, commercial premises and car parks 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.
Secured by Design works with the industry and test houses to create high level security standards, responding to trends in crime, and has given input on a number of key standards .The principles of the scheme have been proven to reduce the risk of crime and the fear of crime.
"The test of police efficiency is the absence of crime and disorder, not the visible evidence of police action in dealing with it."
Sir Robert Peel
Ultraframe Conservatories, Loggia, Orangeries, Home Extensions & Roof Replacement
Established over 30 years ago, we keep our conservatory systems at the forefront of technology & design through constant evolutionary development. We not only test conservatories in our own laboratory and modern test facilities, but we also use independent third party accreditation and testing agencies such as Wintech and the British Board of Agrément to add further credibility to our own data. In fact, the Ultraframe conservatory roofing system is the only conservatory roofing system currently with BBA accreditation! Also, Ultraframe's roofing system was given a life expectancy of at least 25 years by the BBA (British Board of Agrément) and was the first in the industry to acquire this accreditation. This is why Ultraframe is considered as Europe's leader in glass roof manufacture.
Using our extensive roofing knowledge & expertise we support and advise the industry on the most technically innovative construction methods for building conservatories and home extensions. Ultraframe also provide comprehensive information about designing conservatories & offer conservatory advice to homeowners who wish to add an Ultraframe conservatory to their home, using one of our BBA approved Ultra Installers.
Our brands are known throughout the glass and glazing and building industries and include: the Classic Roof System, the Loggia Building System,LivinROOF Replacement Conservatory Roof System, realROOF Tiled Roof System and the UltraSKY Rooflight System to name but a few.
