The Police Crime Prevention Initiative (PCPI) provides advice for both consumers and professionals regarding the security and performance of doors and windows. Products must successfully complete a number of stringent product tests to be awarded the Secured by Design certificate.
Secured by Design accreditation
Internorm by Scotia’s enhanced security performance award (PAS 24 / SBD) achieves the most strict security standard available in the UK, and is independently verified by both the British Standards Institute and Police Crime Prevention Initiatives.
To attain this premium security standard our windows and doors must withstand a series of rigorous security tests, including impact strength tests and attacks from individuals who have been trained in the most successful methods of breaching window and door locks.
