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 would highly recommend Bollard Security. From start to finish, they were all very helpful, polite,. diligent, professional and courteous. What more could you ask for! I can certainly sleep a lot better knowing ours cars are secure behind these high quality bollards.

Quotes were efficient, clear and online (perfect in this digital age). great price, great product and were able to install in a matter of days. Craig sorted a delivery issue out with no fuss and the lads that installed the bollards were polite and professional. Will definitely recommend them to friends and family.

Only leaving 5 stars as there aren't more available !! What a great service I received from Bollard Security. After initially making an enquiry about supply of a bollard and getting the best price I'd managed to find on the web, there were some issues with arranging a courier to deliver my bollard. I had a fitter arranged and due, but no bollard arriving. Richard called me the day before my fitting was due and said he would personally deliver my bollard to make sure I had it on time. Bearing in mind he is based in Yorkshire and I'm in Essex - that is what you call customer service ! Although the courier issues were no one's fault (there just weren't any available), Richard then offered to fit the bollard for me. He arrived on time and kept me updated on the way with arrival time. As for fitting, can't fault it at all. Neat and tidy. No mess/waste, in fact you'd never know he'd been !! Richard took me through how the bollard worked and how to get extra keys if needed. I cannot express how pleased I am with the work that's been done and the extent to which Richard has gone out of the way to deliver and fit a bollard for me. If you are looking for additional security on your property, seriously, Bollard Security should be on top of your list.

Hi Craig From first point of contact I couldn’t believe how helpful honest and easy to talk to you where so helpful you looked on google maps and as I have a wide driveway we decided I would send you a photo before deciding on what I neededYou even recommended to have at least one standard Bollard instead of having them all retractable telescopic ones to save on cost I went for the brushed steel effect./ gorgeous Caleb the fitter arrived 30 minutes early and he was an absolute gem he even double checked our car measurements and because we have an unusual driveway I opted for 4 instead of three Caleb was so easy to talk too explained everything and I cannot praise his workmanship enough / after fitting he not only explained everything how they work for example but refused to leave until I was happy driving on and off to make sure I was happy and could position my car correctly /. Afterwards I couldn’t see anything to clean up he left it cleaner than it was before I can’t fault this company from start to completion the bollards actually add something to our driveway the neighbours love them too / thank you guys Recommedation from us is 100%

Having had some initial problems with the company specifically the placement of the bollard and customer services I am pleased to say that the company have recognised this and reached out to me to reconcile things. We are currently in the process of coming to an agreement and I’m pleased to say things are looking good and I am happy with their after sales service so far.They seem to take a pride in their work and the happiness of their customers seems to be of paramount importance to them which is very good to see

After someone decided to run my folding post out of the ground I decided I probably needed something a bit more substantial. A quick google search lead me to Bollard Security where I enquired about a telescopic post via email. An hour later I had a phone call from a very helpful member of staff who kindly informed me i had inadvertently selected one of the most expensive posts - probably more security than I'd even need! These guys aren't in the business of ripping people off and their honesty and communication has been fantastic throughout the whole buying and installing process. The guys who came to fit it (only a few days after enquiring about the post) were professional and polite. Would highly recommend!Thanks guys!
15:54 17 Feb 20

Professional, courteous, trustworthy and generally an all-round friendly company to deal with. Made an enquiry on their website for a security post to be fitted on my driveway, got a call the next day to discuss further, had a good chat about my particular application needs and options and an engineer was booked to come the following week. The guy fitting it was on time, professional, courteous and FAST - done and dusted within a couple of hours. I would not hesitate in recommending this company to handle any of your bollard security needs. Thanks! (Excuse the terrible driveway photos, it's getting resurfaced soon! The job bollard security did looks extremely neat and tidy).

We then received an email confirming the fitting date, followed by a phone call with a time slot.The fitter rang on the day to advise of his arrival time and the product was fitted without any issues.Highly recommended!!

Had 2 bollards fitted last week. Booking was easy. Fitter arrived and the drive had a number of issues, concrete was very thick and tree roots were in the way. The job took longer than expected. Despite this there was no extra charge.Fitter showed how to operate. Very pleased with work and would recommend. David frame

May I just report what an utterly fantastic job your guys delivered today. Kept me informed when they were to arrive, installed the bollard in double quick time, made a first class job of cutting in around the existing paving (no skimp job on filling in with cement as I note other suppliers indicate) and cleaned up such everything was spotless when they left. Payment worked like a dream. I've no hesitation in recommending your services to others and will do so amongst our local Neighbourhood Watch scheme.Brilliant service.
14:46 26 Sep 19
Great service and professionalism from start to finish. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who needs this type of product/service.

After recently getting burgled and both my vehicles being stolen I decided I needed to beef up security at home and one way was getting a security bollard fitted. I contacted Craig at bollard security ltd and after explaining the situation his team came out the same day, and within 2 hours the bollard was fitted, highly recommended and even received a follow up call from Craig to make sure I was happy with the service. Brilliant customer service and brilliant product. Much appreciated
08:12 08 Aug 19
Great service, excellent product.
21:04 07 Aug 19
I would strongly recommend bollard security after having a telescopic bollard installed. Craig and his team went above and beyond to help us get through an incredibly strict and bureaucratic process with our housing association freeholders. The installation itself was quick and the result looks very professional. The product looks sturdy and of good quality, so hopefully will do the job of keeping unauthorised vehicles off my bay, which will make a huge difference to the quality of my life since I have mobility issues.Thank you Bollard Security.
16:15 18 Jul 19

I requested for two bollards to be installed in my drive to reduce the risk of car theft, they attended site installed and completed with excellence and they have proved to be a great deterrent to car crime.
19:40 17 Jun 19
Had a bollard installed in my driveway, given me the peace of mind at last as been a spate of car thefts in the area. Can't believe how fast the service was and nothing was too much trouble for Richard. Have confidently passed their details onto some of my neighbours as I know that they will be looked after and the service is faultless. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants peace of mind. Not only peace of mind but my insurance premium has reduced.
18:34 17 Jun 19
2 bollards installed in York, Great team and hard working. cracked on without any issues and had them installed efficiently. great job, thanks.
10:25 17 Jun 19
I had a bollard installed for a new build with a block paving driveway, and the service was fantastic. Craig over the phone, and Richard for the install were both very helpful in providing advice to understand which option was best, and very professional in their manner. They relayed the driveway to the point where, when the bollard is down, you barely even notice that there is anything other than block paving. I would strongly recommend using the team at Bollard Security.
