Prestigious farmhouse project

We’ve worked on a few prestigious projects over the years and this most recent – at a farmhouse in the south of England – is definitely in our top ten when it comes to high security and stylish luxury for a full house renovation.

Overview

Following an initial site visit and consultation with the client, we ascertained that there were very high requirements for this project, particularly in relation to creating a property with unrivalled u-values: one that would remain cool in summer but warm in winter.

The owner also wanted to retain as much character as possible in comparison the original building that occupied the site. As such, we went away and designed a comprehensive solution with a choice of different finishes and styles to then present.

Project

All of the doors and windows we recommended would have to perform exceptionally well and compensate for the overall brick structure. Style and design had to reflect the location of the property but also give a nod to modern materials. This led us to select some of the most beautiful, minimalist and sleekest windows available from one of the leading global aluminium window specialists, Reynaers.

We presented (and the client loved!) the Reynaers SL68 ultra-slim, weather resistant aluminium window. A universal and highly versatile window with great stability, thermal insulation and security performance, this window is available in four different styles to facilitate a perfect match with any property.

The windows are secured by Design and PAS24 security, provide a Window Energy Rating (WER) of A++ and Uw values down to 1.0W/m2K. We also included triple glazing for an additional level of protection and to further enhance the u-value of the entire project.

And when it came to selecting the front doors, we were over the moon when the client chose our all-time favourite double security door with classic circle design and bespoke ironmongery. This door never fails to please and succeed and it was the ideal complement to the double height triple glazed, full height window above – total luxury with zero compromise on either security or thermal insulation value.

Results

Well, take a look for yourself – how good does the property look? A farmhouse fit for the 21st century!

High security doors with concealed hinges

Concealed Hinges & Invisible Hinges for Doors

As always with any of our products, security and style go hand-in-hand here at Secure House. And that applies to even the very smallest of elements. One of the ways in which we can further enhance the sleek and stylish look of our high security doors, bulletproof doors and bulletproof windows is through the use of concealed hinges and invisible hinges.

Concealed hinges and invisible hinges: a must have innovation

A direct result of research and technological innovation, concealed hinges, often also referred to as invisible hinges, are a design revolution that actually enhance the security, thermal performance and sound insulation of the door following installation.

As their name suggests, the hinge is concealed and totally invisible from sight when the door is closed. This serves to deliver a much more aesthetically pleasing finish and a smooth, seamless look which enhances the door or window to which the concealed hinge or invisible hinge is applied.

A perfect addition to every project

These types of hinges are very popular with many clients and are the perfect addition to almost every construction project. They are specifically designed to enable high security doors to fit completely flush to the wall and/or frame.

At the same time, they also add an extra level of security and resistance to an attempted break-in as potential intruders and burglars simply cannot access the hinges to try to gain access to the property. And since they can be fitted to both security doors and windows, this an important consideration when looking to improve existing home security as they can also, in many cases, be retrofitted to existing doors and windows.

Our anti-burglary shutter systems

When it comes to security rated shutters, our anti-burglary shutter systems are one of our top selling products since they are RC3 rated and, as a result, are crowbar resistant. This rating and resistance means that any would-be intruders attempting to gain entry to a property with these security rated shutters would be stopped in their tracks.

With their class 3 burglary-resistance certification, our anti-burglary security rated shutter systems provide a highly innovative design solution for any home or office. Protection is delivered via reinforced channels that prevent the shutters from being bent back or pulled off by a number of means and methods.

They also feature a special reinforcement in the end slat of each shutter to further ensure superior rigidity and stability to the product.

Combination of structure and latch

Thanks to the extremely resistant structure of the shutter curtain stops fitted into each, any impact-induced damage that the roller shutter may sustain during a break-in attempt, alongside a highly innovative latch mechanism mounted on the lower part of the shutter is mitigated. It is this proven combination of structure and latch that will counteract any attempt to raise the roller shutter’s curtain, therefore protecting the property extremely effectively from burglars.

Complete with a strong, durable and closed cover, the security rated shutter system is aesthetically designed throughout, and its anti-burglary construction means it can be used in both front- and top-mounted roller shutter systems.

Of course, the last thing we want to happen is that you need to actually use the hidden panic room – we really hope that you never, ever have to. However, you can rest assured that if and when you need to use the room, it will come into its own.

Should an intruder ever gain entry to your property whilst you are at home, you and your family can retreat immediately to the hidden panic room and the doors will create a barrier and safe place within your house for you to conceal yourselves from the intruder.

Once you and your family are safe inside the room, you can then concentrate on contacting the police and safely await their arrival from your location. What’s more, you can also use the room to store any valuables, such as jewellery and antiques, and important documents when you are on holiday or away from home at any point in the future.
