Lyn Poole, Secured by Design, said: “It is great that Fermax have become SBD members, and feel that membership will benefit their company and the products that have received Police Preferred Specification accreditation. Access control/door entry panels are a first line of defence against intruders and enable people to feel safe in their homes, from small to large developments and places of work. People want to have clear images and audio so they can make a quick assessment of who is at the door and if they should allow them access.”
