High security replica windows

Steel Replica Windows

Installed a replica door in your conservation area property but want to add an extra layer of security? Our steel replica windows are the answer!

Protecting our clients’ homes to ensure the safety of themselves and their loved ones is what we do here at Secure House. Of course, collapsible grills or adding security shutters simply isn’t an option in a conservation or heritage area which is why our solution is the replacement of the complete window and window frame. And the finished results always speak for themselves because not only do they look incredible, they are also highly secure and are specifically designed to deter and prevent intruders.

Look at all our security windows→

Over the last few years, we have designed, manufactured and installed steel replica windows across Central London’s prime residential areas including Kensington, Chelsea, Islington, Mayfair, Westminster and Camden. Take a look at this recent project at a luxury mews property.

The windows, whilst they still look relatively neat and tidy, it wouldn’t be difficult for an intruder to enter the property if they wanted to because the original window provides very little protection against the tools that modern-day burglars favour.

The original mews property windows

Since the property is located in a conservation area, any replacement windows had to be completely faithful to the original so, our design team got to work!

After an initial site visit to review and measure and gather details, we created brand new, steel replica windows made from the very highest quality steel and powdered coated to provide an exact colour match. We also included high security glazing and multi-point locking systems as standard to lock the windows into position at two different heights. This detail enables the homeowner to leave the window open but locked in position so it remains secure.

The mews property now boasts steel replica windows made from the highest quality steel. Stunning!

As we said, the finished results speak for themselves, right? Not only are the replacement high security windows completely fit for purpose for many decades to come, it’s also very difficult to spot the difference from the original which is the key objective when it comes to heritage and conservation properties.

Choose from single- or double-glazed glass, with or without Georgian bars to your home’s unique and specific design. Colour match to existing windows and doors and even garage doors and gates.

The benefits of an airlock in your retail store

Here at Secure House, we have worked on a wide variety of retail store and commercial property security projects over the years and amassed a vast knowledge of what works and what doesn’t. One thing that does work and does stand out as a key feature for lots of our clients is an airlock specification.

As such, many of the secure shop front projects we’ve worked on over the years have included the specification of an airlock in the overall design. So, in this blog post, we take a look at the numerous benefits of having an airlock included in your retail store and the ways in which they can enhance overall retail security.

High security garage door

Mews Garage Doors

We’re delighted to have completed another London mews property project, this time installing fully automated, mews garage doors.

The client and owner of the beautiful mews home in a conservation area of London was focused on retaining the aesthetics of the original stable doors of the property. 150 years ago, there wouldn’t have been any cars around and the ‘garage’ would have been home to the proprietor’s horse as they were the mode of transport at the time.

BEFORE: The mews property’s original garage doors

Since the local council planning team was insistent on the doors retaining their heritage and unique style, we go to work creating a design that would not only replicate the existing doors in exact detail, but also provide a safe, secure and even cosy home for a 21st century vehicle!

The new, high security mews garage doors in action from the inside…

Using only the very best quality steel clad with engineered timber, the new doors look exactly like the original set of stable doors and will be fit for purpose for decades to come. The new doors are also fully automated for effortless opening and closing. Plus, they do not have tracks on the inside so take up much less space than their tracked counterparts.

We hope you’ll agree that the finished result mews garage doors look incredible. Another very happy Secure House client!

…and the doors in action from the outside. A fantastic project all round!

Conservation Area Security Windows & Doors London

As security door and window specialists, we’re also experts in the creation of matching conservation area doors and garage doors to replicate existing ones in London’s various conservation areas such as Kensington, Belgravia, Chelsea, Mayfair, Camden, Hampstead and Westminster.

Mews properties in London

A number of mews properties in both Kensington and Chelsea boast such combinations and we’re very proud of the work we’ve done here, working closely with the local Council planning teams and estates managers to ensure the solutions exceed all the strict planning requirements associated with conservation and heritage properties.

The project detailed below provides a prime example of our capabilities in this highly specialised area.

Replacing traditional timber doors and windows

The owner of this stunning mews home contacted us to discuss the replacement of the traditional timber door and garage doors with a view to updating the property and improving security and energy efficiency at the same time.

We drew up plans to create a brand new steel timber clad door and set of side sliding, insulated bespoke steel timber clad doors that were exact replicas of the originals. The engineered timber we utilise is waterproof, extremely durable and will give many more years of life to both the new front doors. The chosen finish was a high gloss back, again, fully faithful to the previous doors.

The mews property before…

Matching conservation doors and garage doors for Kensington mews

The finished result, as you can clearly see, is truly incredible. In fact, you’d be hard pressed to tell any difference and that’s exactly what is required when working in heritage and conservation areas. With the idea being to restore and respect what has gone before and ensure the whole façade is in keeping with the building’s history and tradition.

…and the after – the finished result is simply stunning!

What is an embassy?

Any embassy is the base for a country’s diplomatic mission abroad. An embassy will oversee and cultivate political, cultural and social relationships in country and will usually be home to the ambassador of the country it is representing. Its purpose is to assist the citizens of its home country who may be living, working of travelling overseas. As such, embassies are very important buildings and often to need to afford both safety and security very quickly and efficiently.

What is an embassy door?

Most embassies will feature several entrances, each of which will have a variety of security measures as demanded by the ambassador. Each entrance will require a very high security door and these are often bulletproof to provide protection from any potential attack or attempt to gain unlawful entry into to the embassy building itself.

An embassy door can be constructed from several different types of material all of which will have been selected for their strength and durability and the technical properties they can deliver when combined.

Embassy doors of the very highest standards

Using various heavy-duty tools, including hammers and axes, to penetrate the door and break in, our embassy level doors could not be opened for nearly an hour! That’s the level of protection we strive to provide.

But don’t just take our word for it, please take a look at one of the videos from the testing that features on our YouTube channel:

All of our embassy level doors have passed a variety of forced entry tests and they all meet the US Department of State Diplomatic Security Forced Entry and Resistance of Structural standard. In order to pass and achieve such rigorous standards, each door has undergone a sustained, simulated attack from at least two men.

Art Deco Windows & Doors. What’s your favourite home style?

New build, modern homes are great but there are three distinctive styles of classical architecture here in the UK that epitomise grand periods of history, conjuring up images of time gone by. So, if you’re a fan of older properties, what’s your favourite classical home style – is it Edwardian, Georgian or Victorian?

Each of the three periods has its own distinctive, yet subtle, characteristics and homes pertaining to each style can be found in many of our big cities and towns with some displaying some prime examples. Let’s look at some of the key features of each and share some our own favourite door designs that are available from Secure House and reflect all the iconic designs for each era.

“And the law of England has so particular and tender a regard to the immunity of a man’s house, that it stiles it his castle, and will never suffer it to be violated with immunity.”*

Georgian style

The Georgian period occurred from around 1710 to 1830. It gets its name from the fact that no less than four British kings named George reigned during this time. London and the Cotswolds both have a wide variety of beautiful examples of Georgian homes. Walk around Regent’s Park in the capital and visit Lansdown Crescent in Bath and take a step back in time to imagine what life was like in these luxurious homes.

Everything about Georgian houses is big and generous. Huge floor to ceiling, symmetrical Art Deco windows and a fan window over the door will give this style away. Think grand, think scale, think spacious, think light & airy, these homes are some of the most popular amongst buyers according to estate agents, us Brits love their grandeur, columns and clean lines.

Here are some examples of some Georgian-style doors:

Victorian style

Dating from 1830 to 1900 in line with the time Queen Victoria was on the throne, Victorian style encompasses several of the features associated with Georgian style, namely large columns and symmetry. It is, however, the addition of renaissance and Gothic touches that underline Victorian architecture.

From pointed or arched Art Deco windows, porches and doors with wooden trim on roof edges, to the use of iron and glass and intricate interior design and decoration, the Victorian style is a little more complex and detailed than its Georgian predecessor.

Edwardian style

Influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement of the 1900s, Edwardian architecture was at its height from 1901 to 1918 during the reign of King Edward VII.

During the early 1900s, Britain began to experience further industrialisation and the general population began to increase which demanded a new housing stock extending out of the towns and cities. Thus, the Edwardian style house was born and heralded a new era which was greener than ever before.

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to spot an Edwardian house is from its beautiful bay and sash Art Deco windows, a look that is desired and recreated by many homeowners today. Smaller than Georgian and Victorian homes, columns continue to be a specific feature, but timber-cladding is part of the style now rather than full brick and doors and Art Deco windows often also include smaller panes of glass for the first time.

1920s and 1930s style doors

Back in 1910 when Edwardian style was at its height, the Art Deco period began. Bold, straight lines, symmetrical boxes, mirrors and striking design touches such as arched glazed panels with stained glass inlets, Art Deco was and still an extremely popular interior and exterior home decorating choice.

Art Deco front doors are timeless classics and are often selected for homes in conservation areas as well as more modern properties, they are hugely versatile and will complement any property.

Here are some examples of some 1920s and 1930s-style doors:
