Ahmarra Door Solutions renew membership with SBD
One of the UK’s leading performance doorset manufacturers, Ahmarra Door Solutions, have renewed their membership with Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.
The majority of Ahmarra’s work is for large scale, new build construction projects for schools, airports, hotels, luxury homes and commercial properties for main contractors such as Balfour Beatty, Morgan Sindall and Willmott Dixon.
Ahmarra have dual certification compliance for both fire and security on their range of SBD accredited internal flat entrance doorsets, providing peace of mind that the people, property and assets within the building are protected from opportunist thieves, vandalism, attack, fire and smoke.
In order to achieve independent, third-party certification, Ahmarra submitted sample doorsets for primary testing to a UKAS accredited testing facility. The tests conducted demonstrated the doors ability to resist fire for at least 30 minutes, as well as an intruder’s attempts to use stealth to gain entry to PAS 24 test standards.
Third-party certification ensures doors not only meet stringent security standards, but continue to be manufactured to a consistent quality through regular audit checks.

SBD Development Officer Lyn Poole said: "Ahmarra are a great company to work with and I am really pleased they have decided to renew their SBD membership. We at SBD understand for many reasons that having doorsets go through the testing and audits to achieve Dual Certification for Enhanced Security and Fire rating is no mean feat, making Ahmarra one of a handle full of UK companies to have successfully achieved it".
Vicki Boulton, from Ahmarra Door Solutions, said: “Our Secured by Design flat entrance doors were specifically designed to meet the stringent security requirements of the SBD scheme in terms of maximum security, strength and durability. However, it was equally important that we were able to meet the fire certification requirements and we can proudly claim to offer dual certification for both fire and security for these doorsets”.
