Hörmann Industrial Sectional Doors achieve Secured by Design accreditation

Hörmann UK, market leaders in the supply of loading bay equipment and industrial doors for the warehousing and logistics markets, have announced that their SPU 42 and SPU 67 Thermo industrial sectional doors have been awarded Secured by Design certification. The doors have undergone enhanced testing and conform to STS202 which is the standard for burglary resistance of construction products.

Established in 1989, Secured by Design (SBD) is a flagship security accreditation that has instant recognition. Created by the UK Police Force to support the designing out of crime, the accreditation means that the Hörmann doors have undergone stringent security and safety tests which ensure they offer the highest levels of protection against forced entry and crime.

Hörmann sectional doors are accredited in their standard format with no modifications or additions required. The accreditation applies to both manually operated and automated versions of the door and covers the use of all current Hörmann industrial operators. A range of panel sizes are available, with a maximum door size of 6000mm x 7500mm being achievable. Doors can be supplied in either stucco and micrograin finishes and glazing panels are covered by the accreditation to a maximum height of 625mm and consist of a polycarbonate and welded wire mesh infill.

Commenting on the accreditation, Phil Thorpe Industrial Division Manager at Hörmann UK: “At Hörmann we always want to make sure that we are providing the market with products that meet current need and demand. More and more we are seeing developers and clients ask for doors with SBD status, both from a security perspective and often as a planning requirement. Our series 60 door now provides the most up to date accreditation, together with the ability to provide a high level of security and peace of mind.”
