When Secured by Design accreditation is specified in a sliding patio contract, PatioMaster Secure is the answer because it provides a PatioMaster door that meets this most demanding of standards.

Secured by Design is the official UK Police flagship initiative that combines the principles of ‘designing out crime’ with physical security. Secured by Design accredited PatioMaster doors have five enhanced security features that mean they can meet the stringent requirements of Secured by Design and provide the peace of mind that’s needed.

Interlock bolts lock the sliding panel to the fixed one and ensure the two cannot be forced apart. A full width security head rail runs across the top of the opening panel to prevent it being lifted from the track. A full height security keep rail supports the sliding door at each corner. A PAS24 handle is designed to withstand sustained manual attack and has an enhanced back-plate for even greater security levels. Finally, an anti-bump cylinder prevents the lock cylinder being bumped. These five features sit alongside standard features such as the internal sliding door sash, the inbuilt ‘anti-jacking’ feature and the six point locking system.

The Secured by Design accreditation is just one example of the many benefits that PatioMaster doors offer. Secured by Design accredited doors are available in 24 and 28mm glazing options and two pane configurations, making it perfect for domestic and commercial applications. The 70mm outerframe provides a clean design that is compatible with 70mm Epwin accessories while a 28 shade colour range allows extensive personalisation. And each door is precision engineered by expert fabricators to ensure quality from start to finish.

PatioMaster is the UK’s favourite patio door and it is value-added features such as the Secured by Design option that demonstrate why.
