Secured by Design is a UK national policing initiative to encourage those involved in the housing industry to adopt crime prevention measures to assist in reducing the opportunity for crime and the fear of crime, creating a safer and more secure environment.

Secured by Design supports one of the Government's key planning objectives - the creation of secure, quality places where people wish to live and work.

Secured by Design licensed company status is awarded to those companies producing security products, including doors and windows, which pass standards and tests nominated by the police service as "Police Preferred Specification”.

Secured by Design focuses on crime prevention at the design, layout and construction stages of homes and commercial premises and promotes the use of security standards for a wide range of applications and products.

Channel Windows can offer customers the option to choose from a selection of products that carry the Secured by Design licence.
