NEOS Protect Ltd were proudly selected to give a CPD Presentation at the Secured by Design Annual Training Event held at the exclusive Whittlebury Hall, Northampton to explain and clarify the correct performance specifications covering access controlled communal / common doorsets.
Kevin Walker, Sales and Managing Director, took the officers through the current “best practice” documents – AD Part Q and “Homes 2016” Guidelines – and clearly explained the differing standards applicable to alternate door situations and the logic to identify the correct and appropriate specification covering high usage doorsets with the longer term security benefits that also ensues.
The event was attended by over 120No Designing Out Crime Officers (DOCOs) plus senior Crime Prevention Managers from throughout UK
The feedback was very positive from the various DOCOs who had not previously appreciated the importance / suitability of the different standards within the documents and how they should be applied. They all agreed the presentation was informative and welcoming.
Kevin explained “As a Secured by Design member since our inception in 2011, we owe a lot to the organization in aiding our growth to be the leading UK provider of Communal Entrance Doors and Screens. We fully endorse everything the organization is trying to achieve, and if we can offer support and assistance to the Crime Prevention Officers and pass on our specialist knowledge for their own benefit during their daily tasks, that, we feel, is a little way of re-paying the SBD guidance given to NEOS Protect Ltd by their Regional Managers over the last 6 years”
