Here is our guide to the door leaf and how to ensure it delivers both style and security in your new build, refurbishment or renovation project!

What is a door leaf?

A door leaf is essentially what the majority of people refer to as a door. As such, if we were to be technical about things, the door leaf is only one single part of the door itself. The door leaf is actually the main panel of a door that opens and closes. It does not include items such as door furniture i.e. door knob or handle, knocker, hinges or a letterbox.

The core material of a door leaf is where the differentiation begins since doors can be made and constructed using a variety of materials and finished in different colours and include additions such as glazed panels. However, the single panel of the door will always be classed at the door leaf.

It is worth noting that all types of door, including fire rated doors, front doors and security doors consist of a leaf sitting inside a door frame.

Style and security rolled into one

Door Leaf

  1. High end doors: when it comes to achieving an overall look and feel of luxury, a high-end door leaf made from premium material, such as a specific wood including walnut or oak, will deliver that highly sought-after aesthetic. A luxury door leaf will deliver a stylish door that has the ability to enhance the overall look of a room or a building while providing top-notch security.
  2. Security solutions: in many cases, advanced security features can be integrated into doors and the door leaf itself can be manufactured to provide unrivalled levels of security using premium steel or aluminium which is both light and strong. A door leaf could also feature items such as smart locks, biometric access control, and other reinforced materials.
  3. Door accessories: for the ultimate in door leaf style, the inclusion of luxurious door furniture is an absolute must-do. Such top-end accessories that complement doors, include designer handles or door knockers and highly decorative glass inserts.
  4. Smart home integration: selecting the right door leaf when creating a smart home will showcase that the door has been chosen to serve as a stylish and secure entry point to a technologically advanced living space.
  5. Architectural design: architects and designers will more than understand the need to specify the perfect door leaf for the project. The door leaf selection will underline their commitment to creating entrances that blend seamlessly – and stylishly – with the overall aesthetics of a building while prioritizing safety.
  6. Renovation or refurbishment: when it comes to renovation or refurbishment of a property, changing the door leaf of each door in the home will support the transformation and ensure standard entryway is converted into a stylish and secure focal point.

fire escapes

Fire Escapes: A Lifeline in Emergencies and an Urban Architectural Marvel

Working alongside a variety of commercial, industrial and residential clients, here at Secure House we are very well versed in the lifeline in emergencies and the urban architectural marvel that fire escapes provide.

As well as being an essential component of urban architecture, the primary objective of a fire escape is to serve as a lifeline in emergencies when a building is on fire. This unique combination proves testament to innovative design and engineering. Protect your home with reliable steel fire doors→

As a key structure in millions of buildings, fire escapes are a vital means of egress during fires or other disasters. They facilitate the occupants of buildings, offices, flats and multi-storey properties to quickly and safely evacuate to ground level. Simultaneously, fire escapes contribute to the aesthetic appeal and historical charm of many urban landscapes.

A fire escape as an emergency lifeline

When it comes to providing an emergency lifeline in any property where people are living or working, a fire escape has a number of different objectives when it comes to function including:

1) Safe evacuation for the occupants of a building. In the event of a fire occurring or any other sort of emergency, such as a terrorist attack, in which the stairwells or hallways of the property are impassable, the fire escape will provide an alternative exit. As such, fire escapes must be made of strong, durable materials and constructed in such a way that they can be accessed easily to enable those inside to leave the upper floors of the building safely and swiftly.

2) Facilitate quick response and access for emergency personnel. Emergency services, predominantly fire fighters and ambulance crews will often utilise a fire escape to enter a building in order to rescue those inside as well as tackling any blaze internally as well as externally. A fire escape will allow fire crew to gain access to the higher floors more efficiently and provide the means to fight the fire effectively alongside conducting rescue operations.

3) Increasing evacuation capacity. Another benefit of fire escapes as an emergency lifeline is that they add increased evacuation capacity thus allowing more people to evacuate a building at the same time. For example, multiple fire escapes for a single building, such as a high flat block of flats housing many people, is not uncommon.

The architectural marvel of fire escapes

1) A sense of history. When it comes to the architectural effect of fire escapes, it is safe to say that a fire escape can undoubtedly reflect the architectural style of the era in which the property was designed and built. Fire escapes, just like architecture, have evolved considerably over time and so they serve as a key no
2) Aesthetically appealing. While primarily functional, fire escapes actually contribute to the visual appeal of a building. Their intricate ironwork, geometric patterns, and unique designs can turn them into captivating urban elements.

3) Engineering excellence. Fire escapes undoubtedly require careful engineering to ensure they can support the weight of multiple people and provide a safe exit route. The design and materials used to construct a fire escape can really showcase the craftsmanship and ingenuity of architects and builders.

To sum up

Whilst fire escapes can have architectural and historical significance, modern building codes and safety regulations have evolved to prioritize more reliable and efficient means of egress during emergencies. This includes features such as fire-resistant stairwells, smoke evacuation systems, and advanced fire suppression technologies.

Fire escapes are ultimately an unmistakable lifeline in emergencies, offering a critical exit route, and they also contribute to the rich tapestry of urban architecture as awe-inspiring design elements.

Front door installation – 5 top tips

When it comes to front door installation, here at Secure House there’s nothing we don’t know about! We’ve lost count exactly how many front doors we’ve installed over the years. From different sizes and shapes to front doors with glazed side panels or top lights, we’ve installed them all.

Look at our front doors→

Our knowledge and experience of front door installation is second to none which is why we’ve decided to put together a blog post to outline and share our 5 top tips for front door installation. So, if you’re considering installing your next front door yourself, you’re in the right place!

Here are the Secure House top 5 tips and things you should consider if you want to ensure a successful and secure installation:

1) Choose your material and style carefully

There are literally thousands of door styles to choose from and a wide variety of materials that your front door can be made off including steel, timber, plastic, aluminium and more. Choosing both the right material and style combination are crucial and here’s why. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages when it comes to durability, energy efficiency and aesthetics. Steel, for example, can provide a higher level of security whereas a timber door might be more in keeping with the conservation area you live in. The style of the front door should, of course, complement the overall architecture of your home and be in keeping with the feel of the property.

2) Get your measurements and sizing spot on

Ensuring you gather highly accurate measurements for your front door is crucial to achieving the correct fit. First off, measure the door frame opening and take measurements for both height and width. Then measure again and check they’re right. Your finished front door should fit snugly within the frame. There shouldn’t be any gaps anywhere since this would comprise insulation and security within your home.

3) Focus on quality and security

Quality and security really are two of the main features that you must get right when choosing and installing a new front door. It’s wise to invest in a high quality door that will afford adequate security features for your home and provide you with peace of mind when it comes to home protection. Look for doors that include multi-point locks, strong hinges and reinforced frames. You may also wish to look at extra security features such as keyless or fingerprint entry systems or security cameras depending on your location and specific security concerns.

4) Don’t skimp on energy efficiency or weather resistance

With energy costs showing no signs of decreasing, obtaining maximum energy efficiency from your front door is vital if you’d like to keep your energy bills as low as they can be. Do your research and look for doors that have proper insulation to prevent drafts and minimize energy loss. Here at Secure House, many of our doors offer xxxuvalue. Energy efficient doors can certainly help you save on heating and cooling costs. At the same time, always take into account the general weather conditions in the area in which you live and choose the appropriate weather-resistance to suit.

5) Ask the professionals

It’s fair to say that front door installation isn’t a DIY project for the majority of homeowners. That’s why we’d always recommend employing a professional door contractor or installer with relevant experience to do the job for you. A skilled installer will not only ensure that the door is properly aligned and sealed but also that it is fit for purpose and will function as you require it to. If a front door is installed improperly it can lead to a variety of issues such as air leaks, water infiltration and security vulnerabilities.

Finally, remember to do thorough research on the various door options available and talk to experts door and windows companies if you need to. By selecting the right front door AND having it installed correctly will enhance your home’s curb appeal, security and energy efficient so it pays to do it right in the first place!

external door frame

How do you fit an external door frame?

Fitting an external door frame is something we’re no strangers to here at Secure House! We’ve installed thousands over the years so we’re pretty good at it. As such, we thought we’d put together a step-by-step guide on how to fit communal entrance doors frame for anyone wanting to try it themselves.

The installation of an external door frame, or any door frame for that matter, demands a series of precise measurements and cutting and proper fitting in order to guarantee both a secure and water/weather-tight fit. The last thing you want is for the frame to leak when it rains or let in a draft because it is the wrong size and fit for the aperture.

Have the right tools and materials to hand before you start

In order to facilitate all of the above, before you even start, we suggest that you take a look at the checklist below to ascertain what you might already have and what you will require. This is the very first step and you will not be able to fit an external door without access to the various different tools, equipment and materials needed to complete a successful fitting.

These items include:

  • A tape measure of adequate length, preferably an industrial, metal tape measure
  • Hammer and various screwdrivers
  • Saw and workbench
  • Screws, nails and rawl plugs
  • Drill
  • Spirit level
  • Shims
  • Sandpaper
  • Insulation foam if required
  • An external door frame kit
  • An external door (and weatherproof hinges) to hang once you’ve fitted the frame

One step at a time

1) First of all, measure the opening for your external door. You’ll need the height and width of the door opening before you can purchase the correct sized external door frame. Be sure to measure the width at the top, middle and bottom of the opening as it might not be perfectly rectangular in size

2) Once you have the correct measurements for the opening, you can purchase an external door frame kit. These kits are widely available and they will usually contain each of the necessary components such as door jambs, sill and head

3) If applicable, remove the existing door frame and door with care, paying attention not to damage the surrounding structure in any way

4) You will then need to prepare the opening itself making sure it’s clean, level and plumb. This may require sanding and clearing away any debris from the previous frame that might interfere with the fitting of the new external frame

5) Don’t secure the frame in place straightaway! Instead implement a ‘dry-fit’ to check the frame’s alignment and fit and make any necessary tweaks. Use the spirit level to ensure it’s plumb and straight. This is the point at which you may wish to use the shims to attain a tight fit and sustain alignment

6) When you’re happy with the position of the frame, you can fix it securely in place with the correct screws and nails if required. Make sure you adhere to the manufacturer’s instructions for the correct fasteners and the placement of those fasteners

7) Now it’s time to install the external door itself. If you have selected a pre-hung door, this will usually already be attached to the frame so you simply have to fit it into the opening and secure it according the manufacturer’s guidelines. If you have chosen a separate door and hinges, first attach the hinges to the door and then attach them to the door frame

8) Test the door by opening and closing it. Check that it operates smoothly in each direction and doesn’t rub or stick against the frame at any point. Again, you may need to make slight refinements

9) You may want to apply a weatherstripping or insulation foam insulation around the edges of the external door frame to create a weather-tight seal and enhance energy efficiency. If you do choose to do this, take your time and don’t rush this part of the process

10) The last step is the addition of any aesthetic finishing touches, perhaps staining the frame or painting it to match the door. Then you can stand back and admire your work!

If in doubt, ask the experts

Fitting an external door frame is a tricky task and shouldn’t be underestimated. You must always follow the manufacturer’s instructions and allow yourself plenty of time to complete the installation; never rush or skip a step. If you’re not sure about any of the steps outlined above or you consider it too much of a challenge, please don’t hesitate to ask an expert.

door viewer

What height do you install the door viewer?

What height do you install the door viewer on a security door? It’s a very good question and there are specific tips and guidelines that we use here at Secure House that we’re happy to share to provide a professional and comprehensive answer!

What exactly is a door viewer?

A door viewer, sometimes also referred to as a spyhole, doorhole, magic eye or peephole, is a small, usually round, opening in a door that allows the person inside the property to look through and see outside the door. The lenses of the door viewer are structured in such a way that viewing is only possible in one direction i.e. you can only see out, you can’t see in.

As a security feature, door viewers are very common and affordable and can often be found in apartments or flats where there are perhaps multiple dwellings on each floor. If there is a knock or the doorbell rings, the occupant can use the door viewer to discreetly see who is outside before affording that person entry.

The average adult height

Since a door viewer is most commonly used to identify who is standing outside the door, it makes sense to install the door viewer at a height that allows the average adult to comfortably look through without having to either crouch down or stretch up on their toes.

As such, the typical height that we would recommend the installation of a door viewer is between 147cm to 168cm (58 to 66 inches) measure from the floor level. This specific height range accommodates the majority of adults’ eye levels and provides a good viewing angle from which to see the person standing outside the door.

A few guidelines for installing a door viewer

Having ascertained that the best height for a door viewer is between 147cm to 168cm, the first step in installing one is to measure the height (from the floor) to establish the appropriate height. A top tip is to stand next to the door and have someone measure your height and place the door viewer according so you can easily see through it.

Once you’ve done this, mark the spot with a pencil and use a tape measure or long ruler to see where the exact centre of the door is and mark the exact spot on the height line you’ve just measured.

If you’re installing the door viewer yourself, you will need the appropriate tools to fit it correctly including a drill and hole saw bit to create the opening in which to place the door viewer. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions that accompany the door viewer and take your time, don’t rush.

Finally, make sure that the door viewer is installed securely so that no-one can tamper with it and to prevent accidental removal.

Consider specific needs

If you’re installing the door viewer for someone else, you must consider the primary user’s specific needs. For example, if the door viewer will predominantly be used by someone with mobility issues or a wheelchair user, a lower height will be required to allow easy viewing.

Also, be aware that installation guidelines will vary based on different models and brands, so always follow the specific instructions for the product you select.

Here at Secure House we have vast experience of installing a variety of door viewers for a range of different people and their own requirements. So, if you’d like some professional guidance or advice, please feel free to contact any member of the Secure House team on 0207 859 4207 or email [email protected] – we’ll be only too happy to help!

ARC doors

Alarm Receiving Centre doors

When it comes to Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) doors, here at Secure House we have a long history of designing, manufacturing and delivering complex, often highly technical, ARC door installation projects for commercial customers across Europe.

Alarm Receiving Centres require a specific structure and operating process, as such, they demand a specific kind of door. But what are Alarm Receiving Centres and why is it so important to ensure they are correctly configured even down to the doors inside them? Find out all this and more in our latest blog post.

What is an Alarm Receiving Centre?

To understand Alarm Receiving Centres require a particular type and design of door, we must first understand what an Alarm Receiving Centres actually is.

Often referred to as an ARC, an Alarm Receiving Centre is a purpose-built facility that is tasked with monitoring multiple companies’ and buildings’ systems for triggers. The most common of those triggers are related to security and include both intruder and fire alarms.

An ARC is managed by a number of operative teams who are highly trained to monitor and react whenever an alarm is activated. These teams are responsible for handling a company’s alarm system if ever there is a fire or someone breaks in; it’s a high-pressure role as you might imagine and security for the ARC itself is paramount.

ARCs can be targeted by criminals who may be planning to commit a robbery or attack therefore they must be protected and only authorised personnel allowed to enter at any time. This is where Alarm Receiving Centre doors come in.

What is an Alarm Receiving Centre door?

Alarm receiving doorsAn Alarm Receiving Centre door must be constructed to withstand both physical and bullet attack. At Secure House we always specify BS EN 50518-1:2019 ARC specification doors in any Alarm Receiving Centre project.

BS EN 50518-1:2019 actually refers to the British Standard that the door is required to reach to meet specific requirement i.e. that of providing physical and bullet attack protection and refers directly to the door’s “Physical Construction”.

The resistance for an ARC door must be in compliance with several classes and standards as outlined below:

  • Physical Attack: EN 1627 resistance class 3 (RC3). An RC3 door must withstand “occasional or experienced perpetrators using simple tools as well as additional leverage tools” and must deliver five minutes resistance time.
  • Bullet Attack: EN 1522, FB3 (minimum). An FB3 door is a steel bullet resistant door that has been tested to withstand a .357mm calibre bullet.

For improved aesthetics in ARCs, glazed areas are often included. They must also reach specific construction requirements in relation to providing protection against physical and bullet attack. For example, any glazed area in an ARC (even a window panel in a door) must be non-openable and also reach RC3 and FB3 standards as a minimum.

Are there different types of Alarm Receiving Centre doors?

ARC doorAs outlined above, there is a minimum standard that Alarm Receiving Centre doors must reach. There are doors that go above and beyond these standards and we have specified various other, far higher rated doors in ARCs for clients.

As with any project we undertake, our approach is totally bespoke and our solution is the same.

We will work closely with architects, site managers and construction firms that specialise in designing and building ARCs to ensure that the doors we specify and install go above and beyond and provide the ultimate level of protection for ARC teams and, of course, their clients.

security bars

Are door security bars worth the investment?

Here at Secure House, we’ve seen all sorts of different security ‘add-ons’ over the years but the one that we both highly recommend in certain environments and install most regularly for clients are security bars.

You’ve probably seen them before but haven’t really been aware of their benefits. That’s why we’ve put together a blog post to tell you all you need to know about security bars and whether they’re actually worth it. Afterall, there are so many door additions and enhancement out there, it can be a real minefield when choosing the right door for you and your specific requirements!

What is a security bar?

A security bar is a device that is normally placed on the back of a door. Typically made from a robust and durable metal such as steel, the security bar is designed to add an extra level of reinforcement to locks or deadbolts and strengthen the entire door frame.

Security bars can be retrofitted to existing doors or designed as part of a new security door installation.

Check our security doors →

Able to withstand a high degree of external (or internal) pressure, a security bar can be permanent but there are also models that are portable and can be attached to a door as required, particularly useful if securing a door when travelling.

What does a security bar do?

Put simply, a security bar will block the entrance to a residential home or commercial property. They are specifically designed to discourage intruders or burglars and prevent unauthorised access to a building. Highly effective in doing so, just the sight of a security bar across a door will deter criminals and provide additional protection.

How is a security bar installed?

As previously mentioned, a security bar can be added to a door or entrance that is already in situ or it can be included as part of a new security door or multiple doors. As a rule, security bars are installed across the entire width of a door and reinforced bolts are used to secure the security bar.

By securing the door with a security bar over its complete width (from the hinge and lock points) it is protected in its entirety. Should an intruder attempt to gain entry using a high degree of force such as with heavy duty tools, the security bar affords prime protection.

Security bars are very versatile!

When it comes to adding a security bar, it’s important not to preclude them from other apertures, they can not only be used in external front, back and side entrances but also in internal situations where extra security is required too. For example, we are able to retrofit security bars to create a safe room or on a cellar door to prevent unauthorised access.

Are security bars worth the investment?

Adding a security bar to a door is definitely worth the investment if you’re looking to add an extra layer of security in your home or commercial premises. What’s more, they do not have to be expensive. We have a number of different options to suit different budgets, just ask!

If you’d like to find out more about security bars, or to arrange a site consultation and professional measurement of any doorway where you’d like to include a security bar, please don’t hesitate to contact any of the Secure House team on 0207 859 4207 [email protected]
