Runners Sliding Systems, a specialist in sliding door gear, has joined Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative.

Designing out crime

Secured by Design seeks to ‘design out crime’ in a number of ways including raising standards of physical security of buildings, such as having more secure doors, windows and locks. SBD applies proven crime prevention techniques to the built environment, such as through clever layout and landscaping across a wide range of sectors including housing, commercial, retail, transport, health, education and leisure.

Development Officer at Secured by Design, Doug Skins, commented:
“We welcome Runners Sliding Systems as members and recognise their work in helping to reduce crime. Independent academic research shows that SBD developments that incorporate crime prevention techniques in the built environment and SBD accredited products in the physical security of buildings can reduce crimes like burglary by up to 75% in new-build homes.”

Tommafold bi-fold door gear security features

Tommafold bi-fold door gear attained SBD’s Police Preferred Specification status following a review of Tommafold’s PAS 24:2016 test report evidence and Tommafold’s safety features.

Years of development has produced an extremely durable and secure product that is easy to install.

The SBD accredited Tommafold gear has a number of security features, including:

  • Tommafold locking flush bolts
  • Tommafold secure hinges
  • A Quest Reliance D8 multi-point lock
  • Concealed fixings
  • No external parts that can be damaged

Tommafold door hinges cannot be removed from the hinge shaft once installed, have a 10mm heavy duty shaft and a security locking screw that’s only accessible from inside the property.

Daniel Wells, Director at Runners Sliding Systems, commented:
“We are delighted to join Secured by Design. Security is an important part of our offering. As experts in door gear and hardware, we are always looking to further develop the security features of our product range.”

He added:
“Tommafold has been developed with security at the heart of the design process and it’s great to receive the Secured by Design accreditation. Durability and ease of installation are two further key features of Tommafold.”

Part Q accreditation

Manufacturers’ products, such as doors and windows, have to pass physical tests to gain PAS 24:2016 or equivalent in order to meet the requirements of Part Q (Security – Dwellings) of the Building Regulations in England.

To attain Police Preferred Specification, manufacturers have to go one step further and obtain independent third-party certification from a UK Accreditation Service accredited organisation – requiring regular audits to ensure that product quality is maintained over time, rather than the one-off testing required to meet the Building Regulations.

SBD is the only way for any security products to achieve Police Preferred Specification status.
