Pioneer Trading Company, which manufactures the Deceuninck range of windows, doors and conservatories to the trade throughout the UK, has renewed its membership with Secured by Design (SBD). It has also added Gerda Engineered Entrance Doors, for which the Essex-based firm has exclusive distribution rights for the UK and Ireland.

Products covered under the agreement include Deceuninck doorsets, casement and flush sash windows, and Gerda Optima 60, Thermo Premium and Thermo Prime doorsets.

Tina Beal, Group Sales Director for Pioneer Trading Company, said: “We are delighted to continue our long association with Secured By Design, which ensures that we continue to manufacture and sell windows and doors that meet the highest standards of security and performance in our industry.

“Of key importance is the inclusion of Gerda Engineered Entrance Doors, on our Police Preferred Specification Accredited Product List.  With their aluminium outer frames and steel facings Gerda overcome the inherent problems of bowing and warping that composite doors suffer from and offer superior security. They sailed through the PAS 24 tests prior to us obtaining our SBD Accreditation.”

As well as high levels of security, Gerda Doors also offer superior U values, ranging from 1.3 W/m2K for glazed designs, as low as 0.74 W/m2K for the Gerda Altus door which exceeds Passivhaus standards.

For Secured By Design Lyn Poole said: “Pioneer Trading Company has been with us for 16 years with membership dating back to 2008. I am delighted that they continue to feel that having the membership benefits them.”
