Bike Storage Security Specification
Secured by Design (SBD) operates an accreditation scheme on behalf of the UK Police Forces for products or services that have met recognised security standards. Such products or services must be capable of deterring or preventing crime and are known as being of a ‘Police Preferred Specification’.
urbanspec products are tested and certified by the approved body Sold Secure. To keep the Police Preferred Specification our products are required to be regularly re-tested and we have an annual inspection by a UKAS body of our manufacturing facility to ensure quality and performance is maintained.
Sold Secure is administered by the Master Locksmiths Association. Approval is classified into 3 main categories; Bronze, Silver & Gold. The categories reflect the amount of time allocated per test and the type of tools used from a toolkit based on insurance and police information.
The higher the grading the higher the security provided and urbanspec products are tested against the criteria for SS104 Bicycles and SS314 Security Cabinets.
