Roof security is becoming more of an important issue in an increasingly safety & security concious society. Many roofs have become the weakest point-of-entry for burglar to break-into a house, even when the house are secured with efficient locks and shutters on doors and windows.
Most traditional roof tiles are mostly not securely fixed to the roof structure and can therefore be easily removed and access gained into a building. Burglars are also aware that breaking into a building through a roof leaves virtually no visible signs of entry until long after they have gone, meaning that time is on their side while they are carrying out the crime. Often feature in a newspaper articles, we read about burglars enter a house by just removing a few pieces of roof tiles without alerting anyone.
Roof security has become a concern of many homeowners and residents association to look for a solution to secure the roof. Some people install additional layer of galvanized iron sheet underneth their roof when they do reroofing. Others install additional battens to narrow the gap between battens.

Decra Roofing Systems not only provide a good looking, leak-proof and durable roof, but also a burglar prevention roofing system accredited by an international standard in the Secured by Design since 2006 in UK.
Secured by Design is the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of “designing out crime” by use of effective crime prevention and security standards for a range of applications. Secured by Design is owned by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), UK.
The tests for Decra involved dynamic and manual interventions over a total of two days using tools such as levers, screwdrivers, knives, spanners and rope on dozens of elements of a Decra Roofing System installed on a rig.
Our horizontal fastening and unique interlocking systems prevent anyone to open the roof tiles without proper tooling, and eliminate the chances of burglars to carry out the crime undetected. Hence, create an additional safety & security barrier to the burglars, and reduce the break-in cases through the roof.
