Secured By Design

Focused on pre­vent­ing crime in both res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial prop­er­ties, Secured by Design is an ini­tia­tive run by the Asso­ci­a­tion of Chief Police Offi­cers. It sets stan­dards for secu­ri­ty on a num­ber of our prod­ucts, from the Garador Guardian range of garage doors to our full uPVC and Com­pos­ite exter­nal door ranges. Many of our patio doors are also accred­it­ed under the scheme, which ensures prod­ucts are designed and con­struct­ed with high secu­ri­ty in mind.

The FEN­SA scheme was set up in 2002 to ensure con­sumers could have con­fi­dence in the qual­i­ty of work done when hav­ing dou­ble glaz­ing, doors or roof lights installed with­in Eng­land and Wales. The rise of rogue builders prompt­ed the Glass & Glaz­ing Fed­er­a­tion to set up the scheme, which has been hailed as the most suc­cess­ful of all com­pe­tent per­son schemes to date in the UK, across all industries.’

Evan­der is held to a code of con­duct and our mate­ri­als and work­man­ship are inspect­ed reg­u­lar­ly to ensure we are doing a good job. When you have work done by us, which is cov­ered by the FEN­SA scheme, we’ll pro­vide you with a cer­tifi­cate which shows you have com­plied with ther­mal per­for­mance and Build­ing Reg­u­la­tions guidelines.

As a mem­ber of the Glass & Glaz­ing Fed­er­a­tion – the industry’s most estab­lished trade body – Evan­der have to pass a vari­ety of require­ments and tests to ensure that we pass the com­pre­hen­sive and strict Code of Prac­tice, which you can access for free on the GGF con­sumer site

In their own words, By using a Glass & Glaz­ing Fed­er­a­tion (GGF) Mem­ber Com­pa­ny, you are deal­ing with the elite com­pa­nies in the indus­try – estab­lished, trust­ed com­pa­nies, work­ing to the high­est pro­fes­sion­al stan­dards and installing high-qual­i­ty prod­ucts as well as guar­an­tee­ing you the unri­valled GGF Con­sumer protection.

We have achieved Trust­Mark sta­tus through FEN­SA (see above) for glaz­ing and con­ser­va­to­ry erect­ing. The stan­dards that Trust­Mark set are very high. It’s a con­sumer-cen­tric scheme, which gives you the oppor­tu­ni­ty to search the Trust­Mark web­site for approved traders (both whole com­pa­nies and indi­vid­u­als) in your area.

In order to keep our Trust­Mark sta­tus, Evan­der has to prove that we’re not only employ­ing a skilled and friend­ly work­force, but that we’re ful­ly insured, that we have a good trad­ing record and finan­cial sta­tus, and that our cus­tomer care is sec­ond to none.

As a pro­fes­sion­al, nation­wide com­pa­ny, we feel that it’s impor­tant to stay ahead of the curve. In order to ensure the great qual­i­ty of our prod­ucts and ser­vices, we feel it’s impor­tant to be accred­it­ed by a vari­ety of indus­try com­pe­tence schemes. Many of these are not com­pul­so­ry, but we believe that the inde­pen­dent test­ing and high stan­dards set by these out­side influ­ences are not only impor­tant to give our cus­tomers peace of mind, but are also impor­tant to keep Evan­der mov­ing for­wards.

In order to keep these qual­i­fi­ca­tions up to date, many indus­try reg­u­la­tors con­tin­ue to test us in a vari­ety of areas, from win­dow instal­la­tion to cus­tomer data han­dling. This is often done at our expense and if we fail to meet the high stan­dards required, we can be stripped of our cer­ti­fi­ca­tions. In order to reas­sure our exist­ing and poten­tial cus­tomers that we’re ful­ly com­pe­tent and that we’re keep­ing up to date with ris­ing stan­dards, we have worked hard (and con­tin­ue to work hard) to achieve these recog­nised accred­i­ta­tions and awards.
