See you at ecobuild 2018!

Secure House at ecobuild 2018

We’re going to ecobuild at ExCel in London from 6 – 8 March 2018 and we’d love to see you there on our stand at D1C!

At the show, the Secure House team will be presenting several new additions, specifically for passive homes and other eco building projects, to our extensive security door range. These include the SKYDAS 2000, a steel security door which offers a rating of thermal transmittance of just 1W ((m2K) to effectively save heat in the home. Available in a variety of finishes and shades it offers unlimited design possibilities with single, double, side or upper panels and either an in- or outswing option.

Exhibition time!

The burglar and social media

We have already mentioned in a previous post how it could be possible for a would-be burglar to find out via social media that you’re planning a holiday – well it will come as little surprise that the Internet and social media are now part of the standard toolkit for the modern burglar planning a break-in.
Once a burglar has targeted a victim, (possibly because he has seen on Facebook, for example, that they are planning a holiday soon or are already away) Read more

Security windows make sense

Windows are a popular point of entry for anyone wanting to break into your home. They are not as strong as doors, and a pane can simply be smashed quickly, allowing the would-be thief to climb through.
