About Secured by Design

Established in 1989, Secured by Design (SBD) is the title for a group of national police projects focusing on the design and security for new and refurbished homes, commercial premises and car parks as well as the acknowledgement of quality security products and crime prevention projects. It supports the principles of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and processes.

Only security products which pass the stringent SBD criteria and prove themselves to be effective in preventing or reducing crime are permitted to carry the official Secured by Design logo.


What do SBD say about the C500 KeySafe™?

“The C500 KeySafe™ from The Key Safe Company has achieved Secured by Design recognition, which means it has police approval as a product that can help to reduce crime. It has been tested by an independent third party to a standard that the police and the insurance industry recognise (LPS 1175: Issue 6, Security Rating 1), and which is a standard for the security of buildings.

"Correct installation and use of the C500 police approved key safe will not lower levels of home security and will significantly improve security, compared to alternatives such as hiding a key somewhere outside the property. The C500 key safe has been used in commercial situations for several years; therefore, it should have no impact on a householder’s home contents insurance. Secured by design is pleased to endorse the C500 as an effective security measure."

For end users and homeowners, Police approval provides confidence. The presence of the Secured by Design accreditation and the the LPCB logo accompanying every C500 demonstrates quality and assurance.
