Shepley Windows has achieved Secured By Design (SBD) certification on its French doors as well as its windows in both REHAU S706 and REHAU Edge 70mm systems.
The Shepley frame and hardware combinations have been approved under the police backed initiative enabling the doors and windows to be endorsed with the Secured By Design logo.
Tim Walker, Managing Director at Shepley Windows, says the certification will enable its customers to target new market sectors. He says: “In the domestic market, our French doors can now be sold with the added security for homeowners of the Secured by Design endorsement giving our customers a significant competitive advantage; whilst in the social housing and commercial new build sectors, where SBD approval is increasingly being listed as a mandatory requirement, Shepley buyers can now comply with this and compete for valuable new business.”
Trade customers purchasing the SBD approved windows and French doors from Shepley will be able to use a version of the logo on their own websites and marketing literature.
