“We believe it is imperative for the door industry to recognise the value of this Police lead Crime Prevention Initiative"
Morland is one of the latest companies to join Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.
Morland manufactures timber-based fit out products used in industries across the UK and Europe.
Founded in 1972 as the wood working division of Newmor, and still in the same private ownership, the business today manufactures doors, architectural profiles and decorative panels.
The company’s supply chain is worldwide, importing quality materials from long term supply partners across the globe and operating an environmental policy that prohibits the use of illegally logged timber and supports sustainable forestry. Morland holds both FSC® and PEFC certification for the purchase, processing, sales and distribution of certified timber and is actively supporting sustainable practices to protect resources for the future.
All machining, cutting, drilling and finishing are completed by Morland within their quality controlled manufacturing facilities. Morland has invested heavily in supporting lean manufacturing with the majority of their staff having completed formal Kaizen and 5S training.

Andrew Warren, Morlands’ Commercial Director said: “Morland are proud to join the Secured by Design scheme as part of our ongoing commitment to providing gold standard third party safety and security certification for our flush timber door customers.
“We believe it is imperative for the door industry to recognise the value of this Police lead Crime Prevention Initiative and look forward to working closely with the scheme over the coming years”.
SBD Development Officer Emma Snow said: “I am really pleased to welcome Morland as a member of Secured by Design, who joins us with their dual certificated security and fire doors. Developers specifying dual certification can be reassured that the complete doorset will not only protect against an attack by intruders but, in the event of a fire, will also restrict fire from entering or escaping from a flat.”
