Solidor’s stable door is the first stable door to achieve a Secured By Design (SBD) license. SBD is a national police initiative developed to specifically encourage and recognise manufacturers who design security into their products.
The unique laminated-hardwood timber core in a Solidor makes it structurally strong and secure. As a result it can be split into two sections and easily supports the improved functionality of a stable door, whilst still keeping homes safe from intruders whilst still keeping homes safe from intruders.
SBD works on behalf of police forces around the country to reduce crime by creating secure environments for the public. Part of this is ensuring products like windows and doors meet robust physical security standards.
SBD Senior Development Officer Mick Reynolds says: “To achieve SBD status these stable doors have had to pass a series of rigorous physical tests by independent laboratories.”
Solidor CEO Gareth Mobley says: “We’re committed to making the most secure composite door as standard, and now that includes stable doors. We’ve worked closely with SBD, and are delighted to be leading the way in stable door standards too.
“Homeowners wanting the functionality and cottage-style look of a stable door don’t have to compromise on style, colour or security with Solidor,” adds Gareth.
