steel modern door

Another happy customer at Secure House

Another happy customer at Secure House has complimented our reinforced steel security level 3 door. The client hat has decided to improve their main entrance security before anyone tries to get it. The doors fitted are resistant to crowbar attacks and the client feels much safe at nigh and when leaving the property unattended.

They used to have timber doors but the weakest point of any timber door is the timber frame which does not last long and burglars are able to open them easily by using force. Shield reinforced doors are made from steel and they also come with a steel frame which protects the doors and locks from being forced opened. We also use 24mm steel liners to protect the 16 screws that go in to the wall. The amount of time anyone would spend to make any damage on the door would result in someone spotting the burglars and calling the police.

Secure House- a piece of mind when you are away

“We are delighted with our steel door – the service that we have received to date has been outstanding and the workmanship equally so. We feel safer with our grade 3 security door and would have no hesitations in recommending Edmund and Secure House. (Northwood, Middlesex) “

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!

Steel doors v.s. timber doors

Highly affordable and energy efficient (so they will save you money on all fronts!), our steel doors feature all the design benefits of a timber door plus they offer all the advantages of a steel door. These advantages include the fact that they are burglar and fire resistant, plus they also deliver excellent noise reduction, thermal, water and wind insulation.

Timber doors are always visually stunning which make them popular with many people. On the downside, even though they are often made from hardwood, they don’t provide the same level of security as a steel door; they also need to be protected from the elements so will need to be repainted or refinished regularly.
