Secure House: your number one choice for London area conservation doors
Over the last few years, we have worked with a large number of clients based in several of London’s ‘conservation areas’ including Chelsea, Kensington, Belgravia, Mayfair and Westminster. As specialists in the replication of traditional timber doors right down to the finest detail, we’ve become the number one choice for conservation doors for properties across central London.
The best way to show you our expertise in this area is to showcase some of our recent projects, starting with this traditional timber Georgian-style door with beautiful panel and stud detail.
Located in Kensington, this property is over 100 years old and is part of a Grade 1 listed building. As such, we had to ensure that the replica door creating a replica, met a variety of strict conservation area regulations.
The existing traditional timber door was over 100 years old and only had standard locks. The property owner wanted to fully maintain the original timber feel as well as keeping the arched window light over the top of the door. So, we manufactured a brand new door made from steel which was clad with certified engineered wood which is completely waterproof, weatherproof and requires zero maintenance. We also created a brand new window light using high security glass. Everything matched and we further brought the old to meet the new by adding a fully motorised lock complete with smart connectivity.
By far the toughest challenge was to get the door approved by both Westminster Council and Grosvenor Estates. But that’s exactly what we achieved.
The new door actually surpassed current building regulations on thermal efficiency and security. And that’s not unusual. In fact, every conservation or heritage door we design, manufacture and install always surpasses the requirements; we like to go the extra mile whenever we can.
So, when if you live in one of London’s beautiful conservation areas or your home is a listed building and you’re looking for replica doors, Secure House is your number one choice!
