Secure House team professional development and learning with Reynaers Aluminium

Raising the standard

As part of our ongoing commitment to the continuous professional development and learning of all of the team here at Secure House recently attended a training course with Reynaers Aluminium at their stunning Reynaers Knowledge Centre in Birmingham.

Through our learning and training programmes, we gain new knowledge, skills and feedback when it comes to installations, latest building regulations, U-values and, of course, security. This enables us to stay on the top of our game and deliver the very highest standards of customer service across all of our commercial and residential projects.

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.

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.

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.

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