Asgard Sheds - Police Approved Designs

Secured by Design Accreditation

What is Secured by Design?

Secured by Design is the initiative owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) that aims to reduce crime through effective environmental design. The scheme also calls for the installation of security products that meet police-approved standards.  To achieve SBD status, Asgard products have undergone rigorous testing by the Loss Prevention Certification Board.

“Asgard have an extensive range of products which have achieved Secured by Design’s Police Preferred Specification. The Secured by Design focus is on the critical factors that combine to deliver a product’s performance - design, use, quality control and the ability to deter or prevent crime. Asgard’s SBD product range are manufactured and certified to a robust standard against a variety of criminal attacks, a testament to the reputation Asgard has in this area” - Julian Hurst, Secured by Design

Asgard SHEDS are Secured By Design - We do not simply supply low-quality sheds and include an approved ground anchor - Our sheds have been tested not just the additional security devices like many other sheds on the market.

Secured by Design (SBD) was established in 1989 and is the title for a group of national police projects that focus on the design and security of new homes, commercial premises and car parks. The scheme also acknowledges the quality of various security products and crime prevention initiatives. SBD supports the idea that crime can be prevented, by designing physically secure buildings and processes.

Working with the industry, Secured by Design tests houses and buildings to create high level security standards, whilst responding to trends in crime, as well as giving input into a number of key standards. The Secured by Design Scheme has been proven to reduce the risk and fear of crime.
