Videx Security, one of the leading suppliers and manufacturers of door entry and access control products in the UK, has now received Secured by Design (SBD) accreditation on a range of door entry and access control products suitable for private, commercial and local authority properties.

Architects and specifiers can confidently include specific Videx SBD accredited door entry and access control products within their design, knowing that they will help achieve Secured by Design building accreditation and meet new planning requirements.
