Credibility

We work with leading authorities in fire safety and security, and Fire & Rescue Services nationwide in order to ensure our products not only meet industry standards, but go above and beyond and are fit for purpose in the environments in which they function.

Gerda entered the security industry with the provision of void screens and doors. Distinctive products, they were viewed as highly effective owing to the locks being moulded into the steel doorset design and are now showcased in the Berlin Museum of Art, in a  contemporary industrial display.

One of the first manufacturers to successfully test residential doorsets to PAS 23 and PAS 24 in the late 1990s, we were a founding member of Secured by Design and have worked with the official UK Police initiative owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), supporting “designing out crime”.

In 2004 the joint initiative between Gerda and the London Fire Brigade brought about the Premises Information Box system which was launched at City Hall, London. Gerda works with Fire & Rescue Services nationwide.

Our work and commitment in fire safety has been officially recognised by The Fire Fighters Charity.
