CAME BPT are delighted to announce that our VRM and MTM VR range of vandal resistant door entry panels have been fully certified with Secured by Design access control UL293 accreditation.
What is Secured by Design?
Secured by Design (SBD) is the official police security initiative that works to improve the security of buildings and their immediate surroundings to provide safe places to live, work, shop and visit.
SBD’s product-based accreditation scheme – the Police Preferred Specification - provides a recognised standard for all security products that can deter and reduce crime.
The UL293 Accreditation certifies that CAME BPT VRM and MTM VR vandal resistant door entry panels have undergone a rigorous testing process to ensure that they meet the all-important UL293 standard (link to website) on their own merit, and not as part of certified system where not all components meet the required standard.
Providing your business with quality assurances
As of March 2021, all CAME BPT vandal resistant door entry panels meet the highest SBD accreditation. Therefore, our customers now have assurances that if you quote or install a CAME BPT vandal resistant door entry system, they do so with the confidence that it upholds the highest quality standards in the security industry, including:
