Masterframe Windows have recently renewed their membership with the official police security initiative Secured by Design.

Masterframe, a family business, specialises in providing traditional style PVC-U sash windows that are the perfect, low maintenance alternative to original box sash windows. Having been fully focussed on the design and engineering of sash windows since opening its doors in 1988, the company has built up a solid reputation for being a true specialist sash window manufacturer.

Masterframe turns 33 this year and is a multi-award winning manufacturer, having recently won the National Fenestration Covid Hero Award in 2020 for service to their customers during the pandemic.

The company supplies their Classic Collection to trade clients including new and retro-fit property developers, builders, housing associations and hundreds of local window installation companies, with projects including Peabody Trust Estates, Barking Town Hall, the Clubhouse at Royal Troon Golf Club, Amhurst Park Estate, and many prestigious schools.

The premium Bygone Collection is available to consumers through a network of approved Bygone Master Installers, handpicked for their customer service ethic and professional installation experience. Both the Classic and Bygone Collection are Secured by Design as standard.

Lyn Poole, Development Officer for Secured by Design, comments: “Masterframe Windows Ltd has been a valued SBD member since 2009. I am so pleased that even in these challenging times they have renewed their SBD licensed membership, it’s good to know that they feel and understand the benefits for a company such as theirs and reap rewards from the SBD brand”. Carol Slade, Managing Director for Masterframe Windows, said: “We are committed to supplying the best quality sash windows possible, and so it is very important for us to include this accreditation with our products because the principles of Secured by Design have been proven to reduce crime.

We care about the safety of customers and their possessions and added security is achieved by fully reinforcing our sashes with steel, using robust furniture and reinforced finger latches and then having them independently tested by SBD, ensuring that our windows are as secure as we claim them to be. SBD is the only way for companies to obtain police recognition for security-related products in the UK.”

Carol continues “If you or your customer is investing in sash windows from Masterframe Windows, you can rest assured that as specialists, we will have looked at every minute detail that can improve not only the security of our windows but also the longevity and performance. Our windows are secure, built to stand the test of time and come with generous guarantees”. You can find out more about all the accreditations that come standard with Masterframe sash windows here:
