Arched doors, a double design statement!

Over the years, we’ve noticed a real increase in the number of customers wanting to add arched doors to their homes. Why? Because they are a real design statement and they always look so good when our installation teams have fitted them.

An arched door is a door full of status and stature, and it can deliver real grandeur to any property, even on a budget. We are able to design and manufacture arched doors to any size or specification too. They can be made as part of the door frame or as single or double doors, making them the ideal choice for every home. We can even create bevelled glass doors like this beautiful example below!

Save energy with aluminium security shutters from Secure House

Save energy and money with aluminium security shutters

More and more of us are exploring ways to save energy in our homes and, in turn, save money on expensive heating bills. One of the ways this can be achieved is by installing aluminium security shutters on your property.

Security shutters are no longer a luxury, decorative element reserved for the rich and famous. They’re a key essential for new build homes and can also be easily added to existing buildings to provide a high level of security and energy saving capability. They’re also available in bespoke sizes and an array of colours and finishes that will complement any property, irrespective of location or budget.

Closing security shutters during the winter can significantly contribute to the reduction of heat loss inside the home, ensuring it remains warm, cosy and safe throughout the day and night.

In the summer, security shutters are perfect at protecting the interior of a property from overheating and therefore reducing the consumption of any additional cooling equipment such as air-conditioning.

IMG 1509 e1576242325426 - Save energy and money with aluminium security shutters

How does a security shutter save energy?

An external aluminium security shutter is highly efficient down to its design. Once the shutter is deployed, it will trap air between the shutter and the surface of the window. This trapped air is an excellent thermal insulator in all types of weather, from extreme cold in the winter months and high temperatures over the summer.

Keep shutters closed during a hot summer’s day and you’ll return to a pleasantly cool home after a long day at work. Keep shutters closed on a cold, rainy or snowy winter’s day and your home will be warm and welcoming throughout the day and night.

Grey doors ooze style and they look at home in wide variety of locations from urban to rural settings.
