UAP’s 3 Ways to 3 Stars

Adding high security to your doors doesn’t have to cost the earth. We have devised three affordable ways in which you can achieve the important TS007:2012 Kitemark three star rating with Secured by Design approval.

The three star security rating was developed by Glass and Glazing Federation and Door and Hardware Federation in response to thieves using more sophisticated ways of breaking into doors which have been broadcast on the internet. The Kitemark gives individual products a one, two or three star rating. These products can then be used on their own or combined to achieve three stars. ... read more >
