Paxton Joins Secured by Design After Gaining Coveted Accreditation
Brighton, UK – 8 August 2019
Paxton’s Net2 Entry system has received a coveted police accreditation, confirming it meets the highest standards for security and design.
Secured by Design, a national police crime initiative, is awarded to products that meet established security requirements – signposting people to companies and products that meet high standards to deter and reduce crime. In gaining the accreditation, Paxton has now become an SBD Member.
SBD Development Officer Lyn Poole said: “I am delighted that Paxton have joined SBD. Paxton are very highly regarded in the industry, with over three decades of experience. They are the first SBD member company to have their products successfully tested and approved to the UL293 standard and I am looking forward to working with them going forward.”
Paxton’s Senior Product Manager Steve Rowlands said: “We’re incredibly proud that our Net2 Entry system has been recognised by Secured by Design. Our access control and door entry systems have been keeping people safe for 30 years and this accreditation recognises the high standards and principles we’ve always adhered too.”
SBD is part of Police Crime Prevention Initiatives (PCPI), a police-owned organisation that works on behalf of the Police Service to deliver a wide range of crime prevention and demand reduction initiatives across the UK.
Accredited products must be subject to rigorous testing and additionally be fully certificated by an independent, third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) before being allowed to carry the SBD logo – this is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security-related products in the UK.
