Property Protection Systems and Automatic Roller Garage Doors
SWS UK is a leading British manufacturer of physical security products with a reputation for innovation and unrivalled customer service.
Established in 1985 and operating from Lancaster premises, the company has grown quickly; expanding the workforce to almost 200 employees and necessitating a move in December 2000 to the present Claughton, Lancashire manufacturing base.
The company's dedicated Research & Development dept. continues to refine the product range, ensuring SWS UK's security shutters, retractable gates, window bars and roller garage doors are always at the forefront of technology. In addition to enhancing the existing range, there is also a focus on developing exciting new lines; the SWS UK selection of Police approved 'Secured by Design' products continues to broaden despite already being the most comprehensive range available from any security manufacturer.
