Nico Manufacturing add to Secured by Design accredited range

One of the UK’s leading manufacturers of quality hinges and locking systems, Nico Manufacturing, have added another product to their Secured by Design (SBD) range.

To achieve Police Preferred Specification and be allowed to carry the SBD logo, products are required to be subject to rigorous testing and additionally be fully certificated by an independent, third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS).

Essex’s Nico Manufacturing already have a wide range of locks and hardware accredited by SBD and they’ve now added the Nico PASespag, a high performance security locking espagnolette, to their list of accredited products.

Nico's range of window products are easy for customers to use and meet or exceed relevant regulatory requirements. They offer solutions to many security, egress, restriction and easy clean needs, offering excellent performance and value.


Nico's window products are designed to satisfy and anticipate the demands of a constantly changing market, with regular in house testing and stringent quality control levels.
