Part Q and Secured by Design


Secured by Design (SBD) is a Police Approved Initiative that is designed to ensure products achieve a high level of security - as standard, giving both fabricators and homeowners peace of mind. Part Q is a standard that is a requirement for New Build properties, including home extensions that again, ensures products achieve a minimum level of security. The security level is the same as SBD, as both initiatives are tested to PAS24.
Our windows and doors have been tested to the stringent requirements of PAS24 enabling, with the appropriate hardware, a high level of security to be achieved, meeting the requirements of SBD (Secured by Design).


What's the difference between Approved Document Q and Secured by Design?


Both standards call for windows and doors to be made to meet the requirements of PAS24. Approved Document Q only requires a test report from a UKAS accredited test house.
