Secured by Design certification for sectional door

ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems has achieved Secured by Design accreditation for its overhead sectional door with burglar-proof window elements (OH1042P), recognising its design qualities to deliver enhanced security, safety and efficiency.

Meeting the rigorous testing standards set out by Secured by Design, the industrial door system with window panels is designed to support efficiency, alongside improving safety and security in industrial environments. Featuring heavy duty aluminium double-layered frames, the window panel boosts security while enhancing natural light levels and maximising visibility of busy external yards.

The door system also benefits from Resistance Class 2 (RC2) certification thanks to an innovative enhanced mechanical locking system. By retaining engagement when in the closed position, opportunist thefts can be prevented with a resistance time of three minutes.

Having also undergone thermal testing, the OH1042P delivers an excellent U-value, contributing towards wider efforts to maximise energy efficiency on site. Class 3 certification for water tightness, together with wind-resistant reinforced panels, makes the overhead sectional door the ideal choice for industrial facilities.

“Security is a key consideration for businesses today, which is why we’re so pleased to see our overhead sectional door achieve both Secured by Design and RC2 certifications,” said Dan Baron of ASSA ABLOY Entrance Systems. “We believe that entrance systems today should deliver all-round quality, making it possible to deliver on every requirement without compromise.”

“The certifications from Secured by Design and RC2, alongside our market-leading design and quality, mean our customers don’t have to make a choice between performance, functionality, safety and security. With the OH1042P, it’s all built in and, as the first overhead sectional door with certified burglar proof window panels to achieve both certifications, we really are leading the way in industrial entrance systems.”

Secured by Design is the recognised police initiative which aims to improve building security to deter and reduce crime by identifying products which strengthen security. For businesses, this stamp of approval provides greater confidence in a product’s ability to make premises more secure.
