Domes For Secure Homes

Mardome rooflight

Brett Martin’s Mardome Trade rooflights have achieved Secured by Design accreditation. Proven to reduce burglary and crime rates by up to 87% on new build developments, SBD is part of police crime prevention Initiatives.

Police crime prevention Initiatives (PCPI) is a police owned organisation that works on behalf of the police service to deliver a wide range of crime prevention initiatives across the UK. Products must be subject to rigorous testing and be fully certificated by an independent, third-party certification body accredited by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS) before being allowed to carry the SBD logo. This is the only way for companies to obtain police accreditation for security-related products in the UK.


Concealed fixings

The design of the Mardome Trade rooflight is such that individual fixings are concealed inside security caps. Removal of these caps to gain access to the fixings is extremely difficult. In addition, polycarbonate rooflights have good resistance to impact, making breakage very difficult.

Mardome Trade SBD_18143SBD accreditation is only available with specific variants of Mardome Trade rooflights, with these additions to the Brett Martin range designed to have an impact on crime deterrence.

First past the post

“Brett Martin is the first rooflight manufacturer to hold Secured by Design approval for polycarbonate dome rooflights, with or without integral PVC-U kerb, making it even easier for our customers to meet all of their rooflight requirements,” adds Brett Martin’s Isaac.



Mardome Trade (SBD option) has been independently tested and assessed generally in accordance with PAS24:2016:Annex C by BBA, which confirms that it can contribute to satisfying the regulatory requirements for unauthorised access in new and existing dwellings.

With the safety and security of homes and crime prevention an important consideration, Brett Martin’s Mardome Trade SBD variants form part of a range of rooflight solutions that will ensure a high level of rooflight security on a diverse range of projects.
