The double front property is perfectly balanced and complemented with a set of bespoke, high security doors (each measuring 1250mm wide) featuring frosted security glazing, oversize brushed aluminium handles and multi-point locking. Taking a modern design to create a double door entrance provides total symmetry and a real focus point.

The contemporary design of this door is very much ‘on trend’ and is a main feature of this traditional-style house door adding a really modern touch. With its traditional brick finish and sash windows, this is a widely accepted way of enhancing a new build property.

As well as designing and installing this oversize door set, we installed an insulated, modern sectional security garage door to match both the colour and style of the contemporary front door. This type of door allows for the maximum about of space inside the garage and also delivers excellent insulation to ensure the garage can be used all year round for storing a vehicle and other related items.

Here at Secure House, as well as security doors and garage doors, our projects also include the design and installation of security windows, including sash window that are manufactured to meet all current building and heritage requirements.

Simply stunning and totally secure, inside and out!

We’ve recently completed a simply stunning full house project that saw the Secure House team work alongside a client to help them create their dream home with a variety of exterior and interior doors.

Overview

Located in the south of England, this luxurious new build property is a real stunner. The owner contacted us after being inspired by our Pinterest and Instagram feed. She wanted to create a real bespoke feel for the property but ensure complete security at the same time. Not a problem.

Liaising with the client, architect and developer, we created several designs for security doors for the front and back door, both featuring hand-made ironmongery to add that extra special touch.

We then discussed the client’s requirements for the internal doors. A bespoke walnut veneer was a firm favourite, so we set to work designing and manufacturing multiple sets of doors, including several doubles.

Project

The front door features a horizontal, wood-effect finish with an oversize aluminium handle and side-glazed panel including security glass. Only the very highest quality materials were used to provide all of the protection associated with a high security door from Secure House.

The back door is exactly the same design but the client chose the colour artic white to further enhance the bright, clean white render used to cover the property.

The property also features several sets of sliding doors to open up the home to the fabulous, landscaped gardens that surround it. Each set of doors offers unrivalled security with burglar resistant glazing and multipoint locking systems. The super slimline frames allow the maximum amount of light into the property when closed and perfectly match the security windows installed throughout.

Heading inside, the bespoke walnut veneer internal doors are a striking addition to each of the rooms in the house. A mix of panel and glazed doors each with the same opulent black and silver inset veneers are a key design element as well and being highly functional to create the very best living space for the family.

Finally, the client had originally wanted to include a panic room within the property in order to create a safe and secure space to seek refuge in the event of home invasion, but also to store valuables when they weren’t in the property.

Having created many panic rooms over the years, this wasn’t a problem for us and we were able to manufacture a high security vault door which exactly matched all the other interior doors. This door was fitted to the area and now provides a safe haven for the client and their family.

Through the French doors

French doors to complement luxurious full house project

French doors have been around for hundreds of years, yet they are still one of the most sought-after door styles here at Secure House. We really enjoy designing and installing them for clients and this recent full-house project highlights just how incredible they look and how versatile they are.

Following a consultation with the homeowners of this stunning property in Hampstead, and a couple of site visits, working alongside the architect we manufactured no fewer that six sets of French doors complete with the unmistakable Georgian bars.

The French doors ooze luxury and add exclusivity to this beautiful home, plus they open up the back of the house and allow the client to access the exterior and surrounding gardens effortlessly, bringing the outdoors indoors at any time!

The view from the interior of the property – just stunning!

Made using only the very highest quality steel and featuring burglar-resistant, triple security glazing throughout, each French door set provides an optimum level of safety and security for exceptional peace of mind. Plus, the triple glazing delivers excellent thermal values to keep the property warm and cosy in the winter and cool and airy in the summer. Security, aesthetics and performance are easily combined, exactly what is required from any door and window project.

At the front of the property, the client wanted to create a truly grand entrance using intricate brickwork and a high security door that would add both style and grandeur. The decision to opt for an oversize, Georgian panel door in gloss black perfectly complements the Georgian windows and French doors.

As an extra level of security, the door features a multi-point locking system with state-of-the-art fingerprint recognition. And, with its bespoke, single door knob in brushed steel, the new front door looks infinitely stylish.

Finally, we also designed and installed a high security side door in the same finish but with a Georgian bar glazed panel in the top section. This door also includes bespoke ironmongery, multi-point locking and an external security shutter for extra security protection.

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.
