Residential Tower Block in Birmingham

Yesterday we carried out an installation for a domestic property which had been suffering through the threat of burglary. The client had already attempted to prevent this by installing a security camera. However they then suffered the problem of the wire getting cut criminals.

Therefore we installed a 14 point Multi Locking steel door which should keep them firmly out. This replaced a previous flimsy timber door which hadn’t been fixed in securely as the frame could be shaked. The customer chose a white frame and green leaf which ended up working very well and giving a bold attractive appearance.

If you suffer similar problems in Birmingham with burglary at your home please get in touch today for a free quotation or advice.

To overcome a security issue which a resident living in a Tower Block in New Town, Birmingham was suffering we installed a 14 point Multi Locking Steel door. Fitted with a spy viewer and letter box.

Plant Room Doors in Cheltenham

Earlier this week we installed 5 steel doors for a client in Cheltenham. As a few of the doors were being installed to the outside of a Plant Room it was necessary that they would be ventilated.

In terms of offering steel doors with Ventilation we have quite a few options which we can offer to our customers. Firstly we needed to determine the amount of airflow which was needed in the door and came to the conclusion that a steel door with a louvre panel in would be sufficient. This also had the benefit of keeping costs down for the client who were restricted by their budget. If we’d used fully louvered doors this would have been too much.

In terms of the installation we were able to get the doors installed and completed within 1 and a half days without any trouble.

If you require steel doors in the Midlands please call us on 0121 445 2587 or send an email to sales@securitycare.co.uk. We can also provide an expert installation service to make it that much easier for yourself.


Security Door Installation

On this particular job we discovered that after removing the old door there was nowhere we could fix the door to therefore we would need to construct a frame in which the steel door could securely sit.

To do this we constructed a wooden frame and fastened that to the joists so that it was secure. We could then go about installing the door as normal. We agreed with the decorators on site that they would take care of painting the wood as necessary.

If you require steel doors in the Midlands and want them installed by a professional fully accredited company please get in touch with us on 0121 445 2587.


Bangor Museum Security Grille Installation

Bangor Museum

Security Care recently installed Eclipse Security Grilles as part of a wider refurbishment of the museum in Bangor. Due to the high risk nature of the building and the artefacts which it would house it was deemed necessary to install our most secure grille to the inside of their windows.

The Eclipse itself is the only security grille currently on the market which has been tested and approved to LPS 1175 SR3. This involves a variety of rigorous testing to ensure that it can stand up against an attack.

Stainless Steel Framed Doors

The door below was installed at a hospital in the Midlands. They specifically requested the door to be a zintec steel door with a stainless steel frame. Therefore we had to design a door for their requirements.

After consulting our design team we were able to meet their particular vision of the door. The final product it has to be said gave a very sleek design although the purpose was more with cleanliness in mind.

For each job we design a custom door and often these prove to be unique. With sizes, glazing and hardware being set up exactly for what the customer requires. This means we can design and install specialist doors like the one pictured below.

Installation: Providing a Complete Package

A lot of our customers prefer supply only of their security equipment however for the complete package we always recommend choosing installation.

Survey

If you choose installation we will come out to site to carry out a full site survey. During this the surveyor will talk you through the options available and make his own recommendations. We’ll also take full responsibility for the measurements and the installation meaning you needn’t worry.

Installation

Shortly after you’ve placed the order we’ll get in contact to arrange an installation date which is suitable with yourself. For the majority of products installation will be typically two weeks after placing the order.

We always ensure that two fitters are on site for the installation. Partially due to the weight of the equipment which we are working with as well as health & safety.

Typically a door will take 3-4 hours whilst a grille will take approximately 1-2 hours to install.

Post Installation

After the installation we’ll tidy away the site and make sure everything is working as it should. The end user will be shown how the equipment works and we’ll pass over the keys. Furthermore we get you to quickly fill in a customer handover sheet to ensure everything was satisfactory.

Burglar Bars Installation in Kings Norton

Please see pictures below of an installation carried out recently in Kings Norton.

The client in question had been suffering from a burglary problem by intruders breaking the glass and gaining entry through the narrow windows. As the gap wasn’t tall enough to accommodate security grilles we advised the installation of bars instead.

These offer a solid barrier against intruders. Fixed top and bottom by a 38mm x 38mm box section which the bars sit in. The Bars are also designed to spin so as to protect from attacks by a hacksaw.

If you have a similar problem please get in touch with us at Security Care on 0121 445 2587 and we’ll help you overcome your security issue.


Burglary at Jenson Buttons House

The incident at Jenson Buttons house of burglars gassing him and his wife shows how far some burglars are willing to go. The process of gassing has been muted for a while however has never been officially proven as yet. However this incident will no doubt put the method of burglary in the spotlight.

Our homes and businesses are full of valuable products and if a burglar has suspicions that the rewards are great they’ll go to great lengths to get their hands on them. Therefore we must do all we can to deter burglars from gaining access by installing security equipment whether that be electronic or physical barriers such as grilles and security doors.
