CentralRPL secures SBD approval

Midlands based fabricator, CentralRPL has announced that its PVC-U windows and doors now offer enhanced security performance following ‘Secured By Design’ approval across its entire product range.

Gary Morton, MD of CentralRPL, said: “Incorporating the most demanding of standards, ‘Secured By Design’ is the official UK Police flagship initiative combining the principles of ‘designing out crime’ with physical security.

“Since the acquisition of CentralRPL by the Boing Boing Group in 2015, we’ve been working hard to align our product and service portfolio, including a full system move and selection of the very best hardware and ancillary products on the market. With that process now complete, we commissioned some very rigorous independent testing of our PVC-U window and door products, resulting in ‘Secured By Design’ approval on our entire product range.

“In addition, we were also able to get SBD approval across the aluminium products we offer through our sister company, CentralASL, thanks to the PAS24 status of the Optimo range of windows and bi-fold, entrance and patio doors designed by AluK.

“In a world where we are seeing increasing relevance for enhanced security standards, independently obtaining this level of accreditation backs up our commitment to providing the very best products to our installer customers. Attaining this level of accreditation is another example of our drive to become a complete ‘one stop shop’ for our customers.”
