SBD Development Officer Lyn Poole said: “I am delighted that Paxton has joined SBD. Paxton is very highly regarded in the industry, with over three decades of experience. It is the first SBD member company to have its products successfully tested and approved to the UL293 standard and I am looking forward to working with the company 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.”
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 testing and additionally be 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.
