Live In Design Doors come armed with a vast array of security features and Security Accreditations. They are all covered by the official Police-preferred high security specification, Secured by Design. This is an initiative managed by the Police, and backed by the Home Office, to help homeowners choose doors that meet the highest standards in security and crime prevention.
In addition, Live In Design Doors have two security British Standard Kitemarks. PAS 023 and PAS 024 are quality standards that demonstrate that a door has met a specific high security specification. PAS 024 “Doors of Enhanced Security” prove that Live In Design doors have withstood a series of physical tests based on the most common methods of aggravated burglary.
Live In Design only use approved Secured by Design multi-point locking systems with extra shootbolt security at the top and bottom of every door.
There is also a burglar anti-jemmy security bolt fitted, as well as anti-drill cylinder guards to the main lock, one of the most common forms of criminal entry used by burglars. This applies to the full Live In Design range: PVC-U Front and Back Doors, French Doors, Patio Doors, Composite Doors, Bi-Folding Doors and Stable Doors.
All these high security features mean that you can expect a reduction in your home insurance premiums. We supply and install all over Winchester, Hampshire and Southampton.
Your Doors are reinforced with a unique high strength Recycled Composite Material wherever possible, as opposed to carbon inefficient steel or aluminium reinforcing members.
Beautiful looking PVC-U doors that improve the look of your home too.
Live In Design Doors are also manufactured using electricity from Solar Photovoltaic renewable energy sources. There are 210 Solar PV panels on the roof of the our manufacturer, Emplas Window System’s factory.
You can choose from a wide variety of styles ranging from classical looks to modern contemporary designs, together with a stunning choice of colours and glass options. Toughened glass is also a standard feature, and stainless steel hinges eliminate unsightly rust.
