“A number of our customers demand the security standards offered by SBD…” - AluFoldDirect renews its membership with Secured by Design

Lancashire’s AluFoldDirect has renewed its membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the national police crime prevention initiative.

AluFoldDirect fabricates and delivers 'everything aluminium,' direct to site on fast lead times. The AluFoldDirect product range and service has been developed to help installers, builders and architects make the most of aluminium glazing, with the company committed to being ‘the supplier of choice for Everything Aluminium’.


AluFoldDirect’s dedicated aluminium fabrication facility in Blackburn covers 35,000 square feet and features the Aluminium Glazing Design Centre, the only showroom and advice centre dedicated to aluminium glazing outside of London, which hosts full-sized, working examples of their product range.

SBD Development Officer Hazel Goss said: “It was lovely meeting up with Alufold Direct recently and having a tour around their factory to see all of the great work going on. I am really grateful to the hospitality shown to me during the visit and look forward to working with them for many years to come”.

AluFoldDirect said: “A number of our customers demand the security standards offered by SBD, so we are once again making this significant investment to partner with them”.

SBD is a police-owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service throughout the UK to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives.

SBD plays a significant crime prevention role in the planning process to design out crime in a wide range of building sectors. It has achieved some significant success including one million homes built to SBD standards with reductions in crime of up to 87%.

SBD have many partner organisations, ranging from the Home Office, Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government and the Police Service through to local authorities, housing associations, developers and manufacturers and work closely with standards and certification bodies to ensure that their publicly available standards actually meet the needs of the police and public alike.

Products must be subjected to vigorous testing and auditing by an accredited third party organisation before being allowed to carry the SBD logo – this is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security related products in the UK.
