Secured by Design

‘designing out crime’

Secured By Design is the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of ‘designing out crime’. The Endurance® door range has been designed, tested and achieved the standard. The Secured By Design standard upgrade includes - ATK 3* diamond cylinder and laminated glass.

The standard involves the following tests

  • A manual attack on the locking hardware with tools including a crow bar and mole grips.
  • Unlimited number of 3 minute attacks on the door cylinder using a range of tools such as craft knives and screw drivers.
  • 3 minute manual attack using chisels and brick bolsters to gain entry through the door.
  • Hard body impact test – impacts are applied to the door leaf at hinge points and locking points using a 50kg steel impactor.
