secure house exhibit

Secure House success at the NEC!

The Secure House team was delighted to join hundreds of other exhibitors at this year’s UK Construction Week and Grand Designs Live show at the NEC in Birmingham.

We had not one, but two stands at the exhibition. So, Edmundas and the team were kept very busy talking and meeting with visitors who turned up at both stands over the five days.

We shared our stand at the Grand Designs Live show with Paul Weldon, managing director of The Panic Room Company. Both businesses complement each other very well and we attracted significant interest from many different potential clients all with the same objective: optimising security in their homes and businesses.

Sales enquiries generated

Explain Edmundas: “It was great to welcome so many people to the two stands. We were all kept extremely busy for the whole show and generated numerous sales enquiries and new projects that we are currently working on.

“I’d like to thank the Secure House team for all their hard work in making this year’s UK Construction Week such a huge success – we’re already planning and looking forward to next year’s event!”

Secure House at ecobuild 2018

See you at ecobuild 2018!

We’re going to ecobuild at ExCel in London from 6 – 8 March 2018 and we’d love to see you there on our stand at D1C!

At the show, the Secure House team will be presenting several new additions, specifically for passive homes and other eco building projects, to our extensive security door range. These include the SKYDAS 2000, a steel security door which offers a rating of thermal transmittance of just 1W ((m2K) to effectively save heat in the home. Available in a variety of finishes and shades it offers unlimited design possibilities with single, double, side or upper panels and either an in- or outswing option.

We have examples of the SKYDAS Embassy and SKYDAS Fortress doors

We’ll also have examples of the SKYDAS Embassy and SKYDAS Fortress doors from the Diplomatic range on our stand. Both of these doors conform to the US Department of State Diplomatic Security Forced Entry and Ballistic Resistance of Structural Systems, SD-STD-01.01, Revision G.

The SKYDAS Embassy offers a high level of security against intruders and has been subjected to a 15-minute attack by a team of two testers using heavy-duty burglary tools. The SKYDAS Fortress provides an extra level of security if there is a perceived high risk of burglary.

Test for 45 minutes!

During testing, a team of six testers attacked the SKYDAS Fortress with heavy-duty burglary tools for 45 minutes! Both doors withstood the attacks and therefore represent an excellent choice for any homeowner wanting the ultimate burglar resistant security door that not only performs, but looks fantastic.

Finally, and most exciting, we’re working hard to showcase a brand new product that we hope we will be able to launch at ecobuild. This ‘never seen before’ product is highly innovative and will have multiple applications but you’ll have to visit us on our stand at D1C to see it and find out more!

Secure House at Grand Designs Live at the NEC in Birmingham

Grand Designs Live – what a show!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Grand Designs is one of our favourite exhibitions (and TV shows!) and what an exhibition we had at Grand Designs Live at the NEC in Birmingham this month!

Hundreds of budding self-builders and show visitors came to see us on stand B370 to share their own Grand Designs and self-build project stories; it was fantastic to chat to each and every one of you. We had numerous conversations about security doors and windows for self-build and renovations and passed on our expert advice and guidance to so many people, something we really enjoy doing.

As always, there was huge interest in the UK’s top selling security doors from Skydas. As the only accredited Skydas security door supplier in the UK, we’re the ‘go to’ company when it comes to selecting the very best products for the highest security standards combined with an exceptional quality finish.

The very busy Secure House stand at Grand Designs Live!

For the first time, we also put together a ‘show exclusive’ package for the exhibition. A complete security doors and windows package specifically designed for new builds with a focus on delivering supreme security and safety along with head-turning designs, colours and finishes was something that proved hugely popular and a package we’ll definitely be offering again in the near future!

Grand Designs Live was our last show for 2018 but we look forward to seeing you at a whole host of other exhibitions, including Grand Designs of course, in 2019. Thanks again to everyone who has taken the time to come and see the Secure House team at shows over the last 12 months – see you next year!

How to secure your bike shop from thieves

Last year saw a tangible increase in thieves targeting bike shops and cycling retailers with the aim of stealing high end bikes, including e-bikes. For example, Cycling Weekly reported a spate of robberies across the UK last summer with hundreds of bikes worth over £100,000 in total stolen. That’s why, here at Secure House, we’ve come up with a few ways in which you can secure your bike shop from thieves!

Cycling retailers

The popularity of cycling continues to rise with more and more of us taking up cycling thanks to the success of British riders in the Tour de France and cycling enthusiasts flocking to watch events such as the Tour de Yorkshire and the Tour of Britain. Retailers are rightly concerned that more break-ins are on the cards so it’s time to fight back and secure all bike shop fronts to prevent further losses that could put you out of business.

At Secure House we have a huge amount of experience working with high street retailers to protect their stores and merchandise against a range of attacks. These attacks include moped ‘ram raids’ and thieves using repeated blows with heavy-duty sledgehammers to try to smash their way in a specific store.

Our solution – particular bike shop

We have a solution that is proven to thwart such violence! Our secure shop front service enables us to create a truly bespoke design, specification and installation service for your particular bike shop using only the very strongest security doors, windows, security or bullet proof glass, airlocks and shutters available.

Irrespective of shop size or location, our tailored secure shop front systems are specifically designed to prevent attempted burglaries or thefts. All of the products we use are tested and certified to the very highest standards and exclusive working relationship with market-leading security door company, Skydas, facilitates even wider choice and specification when it comes to designing and constructing your individual secure shop front.

If you want your bike shop or sports store to put a stop to anyone determined to break-in, give us a call. We will arrange a site meeting to discuss your specific requirements and provide a ‘no obligation quote’ which will include the very highest levels of security for your individual retail premises.


Exhibition time!

One year, five exhibitions

This year the Secure House team attended no less than five different exhibitions across the UK and each one was a real success in its own right.

First off, in May, we headed to the Excel Centre in London for Grand Designs Live with possibly our best stand to date and then in June it was over to Surrey for the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show for what turned out to be a record breaking event for the organisers – it was certainly very busy for us too!
