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.
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.
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.
Not only did we exceed the client’s expectations on this project, but the client has also told us that she has received multiple complements on the doors we designed and installed from anyone visiting the property. That makes us very proud!
So, if you’re in the process of planning your dream home or you simply want to change the exterior and interior doors in your current home and you’d like something truly unique yet totally secure and fit for purpose for years to come, please contact us on 0207 859 4207 [email protected] and we’ll arrange a free site visit and consultation.

We have many clients who see a design they fall in love with online and they come to us to bring it to life. Whether it’s saved in your photos or sketched on a piece of paper, we can create exactly what you’re looking for and exceed expectations.
Take the door below.
The client had seen a traditional glazed door with glass and Georgian bars online and wanted something very similar but with all the modern bells and whistles.
So, we used the very highest quality steel and clad with engineered timber to create the perfect security door, completely bespoke to the client’s wishes. And check out the placement of the letterbox, it’s so very different and adds a really unique touch!
We made sure that the security glazed side panel fitted completely flush with the same line on the door and the frame for a totally seamless finish.
We then add one of the most advanced motorised locking systems on the marketing, the FIAM X1R and a fingerprint scanner for the ultimate level of safety and security.
We only use the market leading fingerprint scanning systems that san a 3D image of your finger. You can find out more about these specific systems here: https://www.ekey.net/en/

We often receive calls enquiring about installing security doors in homes, offices and other premises located in remote areas.
Achieving a higher than usual level of security is paramount in such locations since there may be no-one in the vicinity for days on end, thus giving would-be intruders the opportunity to gain unfettered access without ever being noticed.
Over the last 12 months, the safety and security of people living in tower blocks, apartments and other communal living spaces has become ever more paramount with fire doors high on the list of priorities.
The addition of fire rated apartment doors in such properties can give people up to five extra minutes to escape from the building in the event of a fire. That doesn’t sound like much but every second really does count in these life-threatening situations.
With literally thousands of different security doors available on the market today, choosing the door that will provide the best security for your home can be quite a difficult task.
In the first instance, we would always advise you to plan and scope out exactly what you require before you even begin to search for a security door. We recommend that you contact a company that offers free site surveys, such as Secure House! A site survey is the best way to gain information and insight with one of our qualified industry consultants visiting your home to assess and discuss exactly what’s required because no two buildings are ever the same.
During the survey, our consultant will provide you with specific technical, professional recommendations, advise on functionality and safety considerations, help you to understand security levels and take precise measurements to ensure you get the best quote and solution for your property.
As previously, there are so many different products out there and lots of them are really not fit for purpose. When it comes to selecting the best security doors, there are two key elements to consider: you must look at both the security class and thermal value of the product. These two specific elements will ensure you get the best security door for your money and your property.
Security class ratings start with Security Class RC1 – basic protection against burglary – and go right through to Security Class RC6 – typically used in military bunkers. Our best-selling security door is our Skydas Standard 3, a product that has been rigorously and independently tested in a scientific laboratory. Achieving Security Class RC3, this burglar resistant door will protect from a skilled burglar using heavy-duty burglary tools and was specifically created applying the knowledge of all the possible ways and methods of burglary. And, by the way, Skydas doors are the most popular security doors in the UK!
The thermal value of a security door can contribute significantly to energy savings within your home. Our Skydas Standard 3 uses 50mm rock wool thermal insultation and the L-shaped bent frame ensures tightness to effectively seal the door. Its thermal transmittance is 1.3 W/(m2–K) – the lower the transmittance, the more heat is held in – making it the ideal energy (and cost!) saving security door.
So, there you have it. The Skydas Standard 3 is certainly a door that can provide the best security.
It was great to see so many people attending the show and chatting to those visiting our stand about their own exciting projects.

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Grand Designs is one of our favourite exhibitions (and TV shows!) and what an exhibition we had at Grand Designs Live at the NEC in Birmingham this month!
Hundreds of budding self-builders and show visitors came to see us on stand B370 to share their own Grand Designs and self-build project stories; it was fantastic to chat to each and every one of you. We had numerous conversations about security doors and windows for self-build and renovations and passed on our expert advice and guidance to so many people, something we really enjoy doing.
