We are happy to announce that Roofglaze has been awarded the Certisecure accreditation and qualified for Secured by Design membership with our Fixed Flatglass Protect+ rooflight range, demonstrating that these are fully compliant with Building Regulations Approved Document Q.
Here at Roofglaze, we feel that your home’s security is something that should be taken seriously and not left to chance. With this in mind, we have tried to do our part by engineering a specialist rooflight, utilising a laminated inner glass pane to maximise security.
Alongside the added security of the laminated inner pane, our Flatglass Protect+ rooflights will still have the same sleek and contemporary profile that makes our standard Fixed Flatglass rooflights so pleasing on the eye.
The Secured by Design (SBD) initiative is part of the Official Police Security Initiative. It was established in 1989 and was created based on the principle of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and processes. Secured by Design work throughout all aspects of the construction industry to help raise the level of security of home improvements by setting key standards, designed to reduce the risk and fear of crime.
Roofglaze’s Protect+ range of Flatglass rooflights have been extensively attack tested against STS 202 by leading test house Exova to determine their compliance with Build Regulations Part Q – Security in Dwellings.
Research has shown those using products that meet SBD standards are up to 75% less likely to be burgled and show a reduction of 25% in criminal damage, hence the importance to ensure that all windows, rooflights and doors are secure by using the right products for the job.
