Sold Secure is a company dedicated to reducing the risk of crime by the assessment ofsecurity products through manual attack testing.
Established in 1992 by Northumbria and Essex Police with the help and backing of the Home Office, Sold Secure is now administered by the Master Locksmiths Association and works from purpose built laboratories in 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 coveted Sold Secure Approved 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, and is available free to those who require it in the form of the catalogue or via the Sold Secure website.
So when you’re looking for a security device then make sure it has the coveted Sold Secure approved logo. Visit www.soldsecure.com for more information.
