How Secure is your Door?

Statistics have put the West Midlands at the number 4 burglary hotspot in the United Kingdom with over 22,000 home invasions in 2018. We have always put security right up with comfort and style as the key components in all the products we manufacture and install.

With these disturbing figures in mind, we have put together this simple way to evaluate how secure your door actually is. We have broken down the door to the 5 key areas to look at and would suggest you look to score your door out of 5 for each of these areas. This will give you an accurate way to judge the overall security of your door.

Work you way through the guide videos in the table below and see how secure your door actually is.

Ultion Doors

Secured by design door locks…

  • Approved by Locksmiths

    Few locks survive the test designed with the Master Locksmith Association and carried out by locksmiths.

  • Approved by the Police

    The official UK Police flagship initiative combining the principles of ‘designing out crime’ with physical security.

  • Approved by British Standards

    Kitemark is the standard of excellence recognised around the world. Ultion is accredited with the highest 3 star rating.

Finesse Windows fits Ultion locks as standard on all its doors. Ultion Locks have passed all major british standards tests for security. The moment that the lock detects forced entry it activates an attack lock directly into the central cam, this is ‘Lock Down Mode’. When Ultion is in Lockdown Mode your home and family are safe. We also have a wide range of UPVC Doors in Birmingham, so why not take a look?

It’s whats inside that counts

An Elegance Door from Finesse Windows

Our Elegance composite doors live up to their name by representing high end quality that places equal emphasis on style, security and individuality. It is a potent combination that all stems from the fact that you can ignore our already extensive range of doors, favouring instead something that is designed and built from scratch in our factory. Customers can draw on elements of any other kind of door, including composite doors, decorative panel doors and many more, and even suggest the kind of glass designs and other elements that they would like to be incorporated in their door.
