The Blue Lantern – Cops OK Atlas Rooflight

A SBD Rooflight from Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions

Roof lantern manufacturer, Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions, has become the first company in the UK to have aluminium rooflights listed by Secured by Design.

Secured by Design is the only way for products and services to achieve police recognition in the UK and as such shows a guaranteed level of security not found anywhere else.

The secured pressure plated system used by Atlas offers a higher level of security than a snap on cap, favoured by some manufacturers, which can be more easily removed by intruders.



The Atlas Lantern 2.0 product was successfully tested to STS 222 which is a security test approved by SBD. This accreditation details the requirements for burglary resistance for construction products including windows, curtain walling, security grilles, garage doors and roller shutters.


 “Our Lantern 2.0 has successfully passed this security standard and that we have the backing of Secured by Design.”

– Winston Osborne, 

Technical director, Atlas Glazed Roof Solutions



“We work hard to ensure that our products are high quality in design, efficiency and security and we are very pleased that this flagship police initiative has recognised our efforts by naming us as the first ever aluminium roof lanterns to be Secured by Design.”
