Design Windows and Door Systems renew membership with SBD

Design Window and Door Systems, who like Secured by Design (SBD) celebrate their 35th anniversary this year, have renewed their membership with SBD. Design Window & Door Systems was established in 1989 by David and Eddie Martin. With both having both worked in the glazing industry, their aim was to provide a first-class fabrication and manufacturing service to the trade window installers.

Originally established in Mayland, Essex, and employing only a couple of fabricators, it was a drive for delivering a cost-effective, high-quality product that determined the direction of the business. In April 2022 David and Eddie sold the business to the Edwin Lowe Group, a diverse investment company looking to add a new dimension to their portfolio. Fast forward to 2024 and Design Window & Door Systems now operate from a 30,000 sq. ft. facility near Chelmsford, Essex with over 60 employees. The company supply PVC-U windows, doors and conservatories to installers all over the South of England and beyond.

Steve Darkins Managing Director, Design Window and Door Systems, said: “Renewing our membership is never in question, it’s an invaluable tool that is a requirement by both our customers and the homeowners.”

Lyn Poole, Secured by Design, said: “I am delighted that Design Windows and Door Systems have renewed their SBD membership. They have a range of door sets and windows which have achieved Police Preferred Specification and I look forward to our continued work together over the coming years.”
