    Sunsquare Ltd is one of the latest companies to join Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.


    Founded in 2004, Sunsquare Ltd is a long-established pioneer and innovator in the UK flat roof skylight industry.


    Renowned for their contemporary style and functionality, Sunsquare’s skylights offer a stunning, energy efficient glazing solution for residential and commercial properties across the UK and beyond.


    As the UK’s only BSI-accredited skylight designer and manufacturer, the entire award-winning Sunsquare product range is certified for air permeability, weather-tightness and wind resistance.

    Justin Seldis, MD at Sunsquare said: “As a progressive and market leading manufacturer within our sector, Sunsquare Ltd are proud of their latest achievements; gaining the Secure by Design accreditation. We understand the importance of security to roofing products and in particular, to skylights. This accreditation bolsters the company’s commitment to security, along with the quality and professionalism already instilled by the company. We look forward to beginning a strong and lasting partnership with Secure by Design and the Police Crime Prevention Initiatives organisation.”


    SBD Development Officer Doug Skins said: “I am pleased that Sunsquare have joined Secured by Design, their range of very high quality rooflights are a welcome addition to the Secured by Design crime prevention portfolio”.


    SBD is part of Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (PCPI), a police owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives across the UK. PCPI is a not-for-profit organisation and Board Members include senior police officers from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland who control and direct the work PCPI carries out on behalf of the Police Service.


    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 subject to rigorous testing and additionally be fully certificated by an independent, third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) before being allowed to carry the SBD logo – this is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK.
