NEW DOOR SECURITY DEVICE A WINNER WITH UPVC WARRANTIES


Cardea Solutions has launched Secure-Ring, the first police-accredited security door chain specifically designed for the UK domestic uPVC door market.


Unlike other door restrictors, Secure-Ring is designed to fit directly to the wall rather than the door frame and therefore does not affect uPVC door manufacturer warranties.


The product incorporates a solid steel door restrictor, security chain and a ring that slips over the door handle. The restrictor enables the security chain to be used at three lengths, allowing residents to screen visitors to the door, and ward off intruders.


Distributed exclusively by safety and security specialist Cardea Solutions, and developed by inventor and Managing Director of Secure-Ring Ltd Robert Service, Secure-Ring is the only security door chain/restrictor in the world to be endorsed by the UK Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) and achieve its Secured by Design (SBD) standard.


Cardea Solutions Managing Director Paul O’Carroll said: “Secure-Ring really is unique. To gain ACPO Secured by Design status the product had to pass what’s known as a full soft body impact test which sees a door fitted with the device struck at least nine times with a 30kg sand bag - nearly twice the weight of a police battering ram.”


“The idea behind this is that it simulates a


repeated shoulder charge to the door. To put that into perspective, the same test is used to assess the security of a solid, shut, locked door system. Secure-Ring had to pass the same test with the door open and on the chain only in order to truly simulate its practical application.”


As well as being exceptionally strong, the device also meets a very real need. Gary Fisher, Senior Development Officer for ACPO Secured by Design, explained: “Most door restrictors sold in the UK are designed to fit to the door frame itself, a fact which in many cases breaks uPVC door manufacturer warranties. Secure-Ring overcomes that problem.”


“It has been built from the ground up with security in mind not as an afterthought – that’s why it’s the only one to hold the Secured by Design accreditation. It takes a familiar domestic technology, the door chain, to the next level.”


Available in left or right handed models and in


a choice of colours – black, white and bronze – Secure-Ring has already been developed to suit a wide range of door and property types, with more adaptations for different applications planned. Its distinctive red ring is also fully compatible with the Royal Institute for the Blind’s recommendations for the partially sighted.


Secure-Ring is priced at £19.99 and available to buy at www.securitydoorchains.co.uk and through architectural ironmongers and builders’ merchants.
