Security sash windows

As well as looking incredible in any property, our security sash windows are thermally efficient and sound insulating too making them the ideal choice for a wide variety of applications.

We are able to construct bespoke security sash windows to match any existing sash windows fitted in homes that are located in conversation or heritage areas. We make it really easy to replace old, worn-out or broken wooden sash windows using steel frames. These frames are strong and made from high quality steel to give them a longevity that will outlast their timber counterparts.

We installed a variety of replacement security sash windows in homes in Mayfair, Chelsea, Kensington and Hampstead. Each window was painstakingly recreated to match the existing, original windows to their very finest details.

The lifespan of steel security sash windows is the longest of any window, and longer than any timber sash window. We clad all of our frames in MEDITE tricoya water resistant engineered wooden cladding which comes with a 50 years manufacturer’s warranty so your windows could last for up to a century. So, you’re safe in the knowledge that investing in security sash windows from Secure House is a smart decision all round because they’ll outperform any other sash window!

Our heritage friendly windows include Pb6 security laminated glass which is highly thermally efficient. Each pane of this glass provides a u value of 1.1 to keep the heat in and ensure your home is the ideal temperature all year round.

Finally, all of our security sash windows feature a multi-point locking system for unrivalled security. This system has two locks in different heights to facilitate two separate opening dimensions.

FD30 and FD60 fire doors explained

Installing the correct fire door is a matter of life and death. Fire doors are installed specifically to save lives and protect property should a fire occur. Their task is simple but their detail is a little more complex, so we’ve compiled this article to explain both FD30 and FD60 fire doors to help you choose the correct one.

In the first instance, you must always consult the UK’s national Building Regulations (Part B refers directly to fire safety and is split into domestic and non-domestic buildings) and understand the specific requirements of fire doors in relation to where they are located within a property or building.

Fire door testing

Fire doors, for example, are commonly used to divide a building into sections with the aim of slowing the spread of a fire. If a fire can be successfully decelerated this gives any individuals in the building to quickly and safely exit the premises. Studying the relevant Building Regulations will provide you with the information you need to achieve the fire safety requirements of your building.

It is worth noting that apartments and flats are classed as non-domestic buildings and, therefore, require a higher level of fire safety than standard, domestic homes. As such, we always recommend installing FD60 doors in flats and apartment buildings. More on this below!

Fire doors are available in several ‘fire door ratings’ and are commonly used in hallways or as front doors in apartment blocks. In this article, we will concentrate on FD30 and FD60 fire doors.

An FD30 rated fire door means that the door has been tested to withstand fire for up to 30 minutes. One that carries an FD60 rating means it has been tested to withstand fire for up to 60 minutes.

Here at Secure House, we have a range of FD30 and FD60 doors that satisfy UK Building Regulations Part B. Not only are our fire doors totally fit for purpose, they are also aesthetically pleasing so there is no design compromise. We also have a range of burglary resistant and bulletproof RC3 and RC4 fire doors which can include security glazing such as PB6 axe resistant glass.

All of our fire doors are available as either singles or doubles and we can also provide a wide selection hardware for any of the doors such as panic exit devices and oversize door handles for easy operation.

For more information on our FD30 and FD60 fire doors or our RC3 and RC4 high security fire doors, or to arrange a free consultation, please call the Secure House team on Tel: 0207 859 4207 or email: info@secure-house.co.uk

High security windows

Fitting high security windows in your property is one of the best ways to protect your home from intruders.

Made in exactly the same way as our high security doors, our high security windows are manufactured from the very highest quality steel and then clad in timber to create the perfect window in a wide variety of colours and finishes to suit your taste.

As well as providing exceptional safety and protection for your and your family, the high security, P6b glass (in accordance with EN356) delivers supreme thermal efficiency to ensure the heat stays in and your home is warm and cosy whenever you need it to be.
