High security doors with concealed hinges

High security doors with concealed hinges

Security and style go hand-in-hand here at Secure House. 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.

A result of research and technological innovation, concealed hinges are a design revolution that actually enhance security, thermal performance and sound insulation.

They are specifically designed to enable high security doors to fit flush to the wall and add an extra level of security and resistance to break-in as potential intruders and burglars simply cannot access the hinges.

Concealed hinges offer front, side and back high security doors a new level of elegance and safety for residents and are an essential element to consider when choosing security doors for your property.

For more information on the use of concealed hinges on high security doors, please feel free to contact any of the Secure House team on 0207 8594207 or email: info@secure-house.co.uk

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!

Take these two very simple, yet hugely stylish arched security doors that we have recently fitted for customers. This traditional Victorian design is an extremely popular choice and is available in a wide variety of different colours, matt or gloss finish, and with the opportunity to include bespoke door furniture in an array of finishes and substrates including polished brass or brushed silver.

The glazed panel above the door can also be tailor-made to suit individual requirements and feature leaded or opaque glass and even include an etched house number or name.

As an arched door specialist, we know just how well arched doors can transform a property.

This fully glazed double arched door set is the perfect example of this. It is a bespoke front security door, complete with specialist security glass, that we designed, manufactured and installed to a customer’s own specifications. Not only does the door enhance the entrance, it ensures the home is inviting yet totally safe and secure.

It’s not just glazed doors that can have a truly transformational effect. These two timber-effect arched security doors look both traditional and modern at the same time and really complement each of the existing properties.

Finally, we have to show you two of our favourite recent arched door installations. Two very different styles but, we’re sure you’ll agree, two stunning doors that are befitting of each of the individual properties.

Fingerprint recognition for smart security doors from Secure House

Fingerprint recognition for smart security doors

Fingerprint recognition is one of the growing home security technologies and we’re delighted to say that our high security doors are compatible with Crestron products, the world’s leading provider of customer home automation and control technology.

Crestron’s fingerprint recognition systems for smart security doors are offered through its integrated partnership with ekey biometric systems GmbH and enable us to provide our clients with these world-class biometric technologies to suit their own specific requirements.

What is fingerprint recognition?

Fingerprint recognition is an automated process that enables the identification and verification of individuals based on their unique fingerprint. Fingerprint access solutions and systems consist of a scanner with a light sensitive microchip. When a person places their finger on the scanner it will produce a digital image. Using high-tech, pattern matching software, the image is analysed and turned into a code that is either recognised or not. If the code is recognised, entry is permitted, if not, entry is denied.

Creating smart security doors for a smart house

All of our smart security doors with fingerprint recognition access solutions are smart house compatible and will enable you to further enhance any other smart technology used within your home.

Crestron’s fingerprint recognition access solutions include a discreet wall-mounted finger scanner which links with our various multi-point locking and other control systems. One-touch entry is facilitated and security enhanced since traditional pin-codes, keys or access cards are not required.

Fingerprint recognition is not only reliable and highly secure, it’s also extremely convenient and easy to use. You won’t need to worry about losing or misplacing your keys or ever being locked out of your house. Your finger is your key to your home! And even if you cut or injure your finger, the intelligent software utilised will detect this and adapt accordingly.

The Secure House of the future

Easy to install and integrate with any of our high security doors, these fingerprint recognition access systems allow anyone to create their secure house of the future. Track who is coming into your home and link to other control systems such as CCTV or facial recognition to add another layer of security and peace of mind for you and your family.
