At Bollard Security we take the security of your home seriously. All of our lockable products hold the Secured by Design accreditation.
Established in 1989, Secured by Design (SBD) is the title for a group of national police projects focusing on the design and security for new and refurbished homes, commercial premises and car parks as well as the acknowledgement of quality security products and crime prevention projects. It supports the principles of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and processes.
Secured by Design works with the industry and test houses to create high level security standards, responding to trends in crime, and has given input on several key standards. The principles of the scheme have been proven to reduce the risk of crime and the fear of crime.
SECURED BY DESIGN: PRODUCT LICENSING SCHEME
Secured by Design member company status is awarded to companies producing security products that pass standards and tests nominated by the police service. The standards and related tests must demonstrate the product effectiveness in preventing or reducing crime, usually by resistance to physical attack.
SECURED BY DESIGN: FACTS & FIGURES
Secured by Design developments (those using products and materials that meet Secured by Design Standards) are up to 75% less likely to be burgled and show a reduction of 25% in criminal damage.
The additional cost of using Secured by Design standards in the average home is only around £170.
The Association of British Insurers has estimated that the introduction of Secured by Design standards across the UK would bring more than £3.2 billion worth of savings to the economy over 20 years.
Householders who aren’t offered security recommendations after a burglary are 69% more likely to suffer a repeat incident than those who are offered advice.
High crime is one reason why people move home. One survey noted that 5.3 million people said that concern about crime levels and a desire to move to a safer location was their main reason for moving home.
The London 2012 Olympic Park and the 2014 Commonwealth Games Village were both awarded full Secured by Design status.
A study of Glasgow Housing Association properties claimed that there had been a saving of £18,304 in the research area due (in some part at least) to the introduction of SBD.
SBD installation pays for itself in at the most 2 years in saved costs of crime with two alternative methods of measurement suggesting.
Our telescopic bollards have been awarded the Sold Secure Gold accreditation.
Sold Secure is dedicated to reducing the risk of crime by the assessment of security products. Established in 1992 by Northumbria and Essex Police with the help and backing of the Home Office. Sold Secure is now owned and administered by the Master Locksmiths Association and works from purpose built laboratories just outside Daventry.
The scheme has close ties with a number of constabularies and insurers who provide regular information regarding the methods of theft and the tools utilised by criminals in their areas. This helps to maintain up to date specifications and means security products can be assessed in the light of the risk they are likely to encounter when in use. Now products are tested by a highly motivated team of professional locksmiths under the direction of a small board of directors who meet on a regular basis to administer the scheme and move the process forward in keeping with modern theft methods.
Manufacturers and suppliers can apply to have their products approved by Sold Secure. Products which have been satisfactorily assessed may bear the Sold Secure Quality Mark. Information on these approved products is circulated by Sold Secure to crime prevention officers, insurance companies, the media, the Home Office and the public.
Sold Secure Approval is classified into 3 main categories; Bronze, Silver & Gold. The categories reflect the amount of time per test and the tools that are used and themselves vary depending on what test specification is being used. The higher the grading (Bronze is the lowest) the higher the security provided by the product.
I'm always sceptical about 5 star reviews but Bollard Security really are that good. From an online chat on Sunday morning where Richard answered my questions to placing the order and having the bollards installed on Tuesday morning everything was fantastic. Its such a rare thing these days to find a company that does exactly as they promise. Thank you to Richard, Kenny and the team.

Fantastic response time and very professional install. I was in contact with the friendly installer who communicated with me every step of the way. They cleaned up the site very well, infact they left me wondering what they actually did with the soil they dug out of the ground. Final product looks great and provides excellent peace of mind.

After having out house burgled and my car stolen from the drive I gave Richard a call to get a bollard put on our driveway,shortly after I had the fitters come out, There were two chaps who came over they were awesome. Really professional and personable, and the bollard is great and took no time to fit.Really happy with the quality and the service! Hopefully more than enough deterrent to keep our car safe if it were to happen again

Having had my car stolen a couple of weeks earlier , I wanted some protection for my drive. I found bollard security online, they were very quick to quote and accommodated me with a day I was off to install. After a brief discussion, opted for two bollards, which the two guys installed. I would recommend Bollard Security to my friends and family.A Vickrage, Alvechurch

S14HD LA Telescopic BollardFrom initial enquiry, to re-instating the surrounding surface all aspects have been first class. Initially one security bollard installed by Kenny and Josh was so impressive I chose to install an additional unit, this time installed by Caleb and Shane. Both installations were conducted in atrocious weather and in very challenging ground. Both teams are excellent ambassadors for Bollard Security Ltd., conducting the installations in a consistent professional manner and leaving the site completely tidy, removing all waste material on completion of the work. 100% satisfied. Highly recommend without reservation.Geoff Miller

Richard was very helpful with his initial overview of what was to be installed and his recommendations. The two installers did a very professional job, great quality and would defo recommend. There are probably cheaper companies with options out there, but would use Bollard Security again and happy to share their details for anyone else looking for a bollard security installation.

Richard was a great communicator. We changed the originally fitting date, and my driveway presented a couple of issues that created a small delay. Richard and his colleague were very friendly and professional, worked around me, and the quality of the work was excellent.

I contacted Bollard Security via their messenger and they were here within a few days. Job done.

Can’t recommend Bollard Security enoughThey delivered everything they promisedThe guys turned up on time and their work is brilliant … more perfectly I wouldn’t have known they’d been, as they cleared up any messI feel so much safer now I have these installed after having an opportunist trying to break in, potentially to take my car.Their prices are definitely reasonable as well especially knowing I feel safer
15:33 27 Sep 21

Unbelievable service; from Richard the boss who took the time to explain our options and the advantages/disadvantages of each to Anna in the office and the installation team who communicated with us on dates and times to suit us and kept us informed of ETA and who were charming, professional and were clearly committed to doing a fantastic job. They left with the 2 bollards in place looking as if they had always been there, no mess, no damage to drive way and clean. Thank you

I'm extremely pleased with my purchase from Bollard Security. The website is easy to navigate and ordering simple. When I phoned to ask a question it was answered straightaway. I was told the work would be done 2 days later and the guys turned up on time. They were friendly and helpful and did a really neat job in good time. I have no reservations in recommending this company.
15:48 22 Sep 21
Fantastic service from start to finish from Bollard security. I found them online and called to discuss which bollards would be be best for my house/car size. Richard is super helpful and went through everything in detail and answered all of my questions who explained everything in full and gave us a full demo on how to use and look after the bollards. Extremely happy with the end product, they look great, we have peace of mind now our vehicles are secure and I would 100% recommend them!
19:26 21 Sep 21
Booked and paid online and the bollard was installed just two days later. Installation was carried out quickly and professionally, with no waste or mess. I was shown how to operate and maintain the unit and the whole installation was completed in around one hour. Excellent quality, price and service.

These guys are brilliant to say the least! Richard has a great team. They are based in Yorkshire! But don’t let it deter you. They will work where ever their services are needed.From their advice, to delivery and installation, it was faultless. They know their stuff and it shows from their commitment and dedication to delivering exemplary service.Kenneth and his assistance knew what they needed to do to make the bollards not only work, but make them visually pleasing too. I didn’t think one could take so much interest in the such a mundane piece of street furniture.We went for S14 stainless steel lift assist bollards. It’s effortless for my wife and daughter too, as it has a gas actuated ram which enables the bollard to raise automatically.Worthwhile spending that little extra for the ‘kerb appeal’ and assurance of security for your vehiclesand home.We have no hesitation in recommended Richard and his team.Thanks once again

Questions on chat were quick and informative even when it was late in the evening. Quote came the next day after the evening chat. The day before installation we were contacted given an estimated arrival time. On the day of the installation we were informed that they were on route when they left the previous job. The installation was in our block paved drive the installation was neat and tidy. The fitter Kenny explained the functionality. Overall our experience was excellent and would recommend Bollard security
