We’re Specialists, we’re Dedicated, we’re Sincere

Specialists

We’re the experts who continuously drive innovation and product development.

Dedicated

We love what we do and hold ourselves accountable to our clients, and one another.

Sincere

We keep our promises. We go above and beyond and always tell it how it is.

We have over 40 years experience delivering full turnkey protection solutions.

Our project management and dedicated contracts managers provide exemplary support on all projects from start to finish ensuring top quality service and delivery. Whilst we deliver products and services which are compliant with current legislation, our in-house design and manufacturing facilities still offer the capacity to bring bespoke flair and personalised touches to your project.

Certification and Associations

BM TRADA: Our installation teams are certified to BM TRADA’s exacting standards.

associations

SDS Specialist Door Solutions is committed to the welfare of our stakeholders as well as humanity at large.

All our commercial activity is executed professionally and in accordance with ISO accreditation for the mutual benefit of all our customers, suppliers and whole workforce.

We embrace ethical practice throughout our business operations, whilst the safety and protection of our workforce is paramount. SDS ensures these standards are maintained through compliance to legislation, provision of safety equipment and PPE.

Environmental Responsibility

Products: Amongst other developments, SDS has recently launched durablend, a new generation of ecologically sound and recyclable wall protection products which are PVC-free. This is a market leading move offering specifiers and end-users unrivalled choice.

We always make it a priority to source supplies from companies who comply with the Forest Stewardship Councils (FSC® C131164) Chain of Custody Standards.

Premises: Supporting our environmentally friendly product stance, we are not only introducing electric vehicles into our fleet but have motion sensitive lighting in our offices besides flush-free and rainwater harvesting technologies in our rest areas. SDS persistently seeks ways in which to enhance our environmentally conscious position.

At SDS we are committed to making regular gifts to a variety of charities. Donations are made to help provide international humanitarian aid, educational support, alleviation of poverty, support of medical research and assist charities which provide lifesaving services.

A few of the recent charitable activities we have endorsed include sponsoring staff member Mervyn Scott, who took part in the 3 Peaks Challenge raising money for a local care provider, the Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice. In a separate 3 Peaks Challenge SDS pledged sponsorship to a delegation from Kier Construction who also conquered the hills in their efforts to raise funds for Barnardo’s.

We backed James Rood and Paul Agate of Kier on their frightening, but successful skydive as they raised monies for Southampton General Hospital; a gift went to an intrepid group from Collins Construction on completing the London to Brighton bike ride on behalf of Macmillan; another contribution to the Charlies Day Unit at North Hampshire Hospital.

Finally, a charitable donation to the admirable Ben McDermott of Interserve who squelched and slithered his way through the Tough Mudder Challenge for the ‘Home from Home Appeal’ at The Walton Centre.

If you feel your latest cause is truly deserving of our support, please contact SDS to make an application.
