Morecambe Home is made Secure with SeceuroGuard Retractable Gates

With everyone spending more time at home, creating a safe and secure sanctuary is now more important than ever. 

In addition to quality locks and CCTV or alarm systems, physical security such as roller shutters and retractable gates provide both a visual deterrent and a strong physical barrier against any thieves who try to enter your home.
In this case study, SWS UK distributor Duratec Security Solutions advised their client on the ideal solution for securing three vulnerable door and window openings at their Morecambe based home.
The Customer

After a series of attempted break-ins within the homeowners local area, including an attempt on their own property, Duratec’s client decided it was important to secure their bi-fold doors which, being located at the back of the property, made them an easy target for would-be thieves.
The Requirements

As well as securing their bi-fold opening, the homeowner was looking to secure a further two vulnerable openings; a first-floor bedroom and their home office. 

Whilst security remained their primary concern, the homeowners were keen to find a solution that didn’t have a negative impact on either the internal or external appearance of their stylish home.

The Solution

After extensive research, the homeowner decided that retractable gates would provide a perfect balance of strong, reliable security whilst still allowing natural light to enter their home. 

They liked the neat bunching of the gates when not in use, ensuring they could still maximise the living space in their extension.
Having viewed a similar product at a friend’s property, one concern was that the ‘X-lattice’ looked too commercial. Duratec informed them that SWS UK’s SeceuroGuard was available with a contemporary ‘S-lattice’ design which their client felt was much more in keeping with their home. 

They were also pleased to discover that the gates could be colour matched to their existing windows, opting for white on the first-floor openings and a modern anthracite finish for the gate securing their bi-fold doors.
The Outcome

With a team of two installers, Duratec was able to fit the gates in 4-5 hours. Chris Ellison, the owner of Duratec, explained that when installing products in customer’s homes it was important for them to take their time, ensuring a perfect fit whilst avoiding damage to the property. Particularly applicable to this client who had very expensive floor tiles where the SeceuroGuard’s low-profile bottom track needed to be installed.
Upon completion, the client said: 
‘Duratec Solutions and the installation was very professional. My wife and I are very happy with the product!’
So impressed was the client that they went on to recommend both SeceuroGuard and Duratec Security Solutions to their friends in Leyland who had unfortunately experienced a recent break-in.
Chris Ellison said: 
‘Because of one prior recommendation, we have been able to help secure multiple residential properties with the SWS SeceuroGuard retractable gates, making the homeowners feel safer in their homes.’
