The directors of Security Certified Doors Ltd are passionate about providing security solutions for all who realise the improved ‘physical security’ is a vital component in terms of ‘burglary prevention’ and personal protection within the home or business.
Ciaran O’Connell the company’s Managing Director is a qualified mental health counselor. While training as a counselor in 2005, Ciaran became aware of the significant numbers of individuals presenting with trauma arising from their own experiences of home burglary and set out to research burglary trends in Europe. This research revealed that to counteract this problem most European states with the exception of Ireland have since the mid eighties focused their attention on improving ‘physical security’ within the building – while at the same time Ireland has maintained a focus on intruder alarm systems.
Nevertheless, the exciting arrival of the recently introduced new Irish ‘Burglar Resistance’ Security Standard IS EN 1627:2011 is an indication that Ireland is now changing and ready to adopt improved ‘physical security’ measures that have already proved successful throughout Europe.
The introduction of this important standard means that in determining the appropriate entrance or exit doors for a house, apartment or business, the degree of ‘Burglar Resistance’ provided by the door now represents the single most important criteria to be considered.
