Secured by Design Composite Doors

As well as being attractive, durable, energy efficient and welcoming, a front door should also act as a barrier and deterrent to even the most persistent of intruders.

Designing out crime

Home security is a topic that should never be ignored. It’s reported that 73% of burglars gain access through the front door, as more intruders are becoming experts at ‘lock bumping’ modern cylinder door locks.

As a company, we are committed to supporting the principles of ‘designing out crime’ and we work with a number of partners and test houses to ensure our doors are secure and safe.

Bowater Doors, are members of Secured by Design, a police initiative that improves the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings.

Through this scheme, we are able to offer high security upgraded composite doors that have been tested and proven to meet the evolving security standards and building regulations.
