Composite Doors Security

As expert home improvement engineers, we recognise our responsibility in providing all of our customers with security focused composite doors. Have total peace of mind that our composite doors come with a whopping ten-year guarantee. What makes our composite doors one of the most trusted safe on the market?

The design and quality of our composite doors work in perfect harmony to increase the security of your Brentwood home. Firstly, we only use the highest quality sophisticated multi point stainless steel locks to ensure the safety and well-being of yourself and your loved ones. These robust locks have helped our doors gain Secured By Design status, recognised by the British Police.

The second reason why our composite doors are so reliable is the design of the doors themselves. All hinges and locks are built into the frame of the door, keeping them out of site and out of mind. Our theory is a simple one, if a potential burglar can’t see the locks or hinges – how do they know which part of your door to target?


Composite Doors Maintenance

The clever design of our composite doors also aids you. Our locks and hinges are built into the frame and door, preventing them from coming into contact from harmful and corrosive weather conditions. Furthering the life expectancy of the product.

Oakland home improvements recommend basic maintenance once every couple of months to ensure that your composite door retains its effortless functionality and pleasing looks. A hot soapy sponge to clean out any collected dirt is more than enough to keep your composite door in tip top condition for many years to come.

As we all know, composite doors are designed to replicate a traditional wooden timber door. The reason that our customers favour composites is that wooden doors famously cause more problems than they are worth. Wooden doors are prone to rotting, warping and discolouration. Because of this, timber doors need care and attention – which involves removing the heavy door from the hinges, putting your back out in the process and hiring an experienced carpenter to rework your door to fit into the frame.  A time consuming and expensive process.

Composite doors capture the elegance of wooden doors minus the hassle. Your composite door is guaranteed against warping, discolouration and cracking for an entire decade! Making them the favoured choice over wooden doors.

We have over thirty years of experience in fitting the highest quality double glazing in Braintree and the surrounding areas. Throughout the years, the quality of our work has given us a respectable reputation as expert double glazing installers in, Essex.

energy efficient double glazing

In short, Oakland offer double glazing in uPVC, Aluminium and Timber Windows. We also fit our double glazing to made to measure, bespoke conservatories.
Questions are. What are the benefits of double glazing? Can double glazing save you money? How does Double Glazing work?

Double Glazing; Benefits and Cash

Let’s tackle the first two questions now, as one. One of the major benefits of investing in double glazing is the money you will save on your energy bills. According to an in depth case study carried out by Energy Saving Trust, every type of property benefits from Double Glazing.
For this article, let’s take A rated Energy Efficient Windows. Again, going by the data available on the Energy Saving Trust’s website. Data taken from properties where all windows have been upgraded to double glazing.

Detached Property: £120 – £160
Semi Detached: £85 – £110
Mid Terrace: £65 – £90
Bungalow: £55 – £75
Flat: £40 – £60

These savings are based on typical gas-heated homes, taken from Energy Saving 

It goes without saying that all Windows, Double Glazing and single pane, will not retain 100% of their energy. However, these figures perfectly illustrate just how much money energy efficient double glazing can save you. As it stands, highest level of savings is £160, the price of your car insurance? And the lowest, £40, the price of a meal for two? But we can take this further, considering that we back the Eurocell ten year guarantee.

Now the picture starts to change. Highest level of savings is £1,600, the price of a very respectable all inclusive holiday. The lowest savings is still a massive £400, the cost of a brand new television.

Further Benefits Of Double Glazing

Double glazing decreases the size of your carbon footprint, something we should all be pushing to do. For example, our uPVC double glazing is 100% recyclable. So, in many, many years time when your uPVC double glazing is removed and replaced. You can rest assure that the materials used to create your uPVC window can and will be melted down and be used again.

Fed up with the loud noise of the outside world? Double glazing insulates your house acoustically. Minimising unwanted noise that pollutes your home, keeping the disrupting noises of car horns and general clatter outside. Oakland Home Improvements only install the highest quality Double Glazing.

Now the big one, how does Double Glazing work?

thermally efficient double glazing

How Does Double Glazing Work?

In essence, the technology behind double glazing is fairly simplistic. Essentially, the two panes of glass trap a wall of air between them. The gap is too narrow for the air to circulate, so instead it forms a thermal barrier. The thermal barrier stops cold air from entering your home. It also heavily reduces warm air from leaving your property, hence the term thermal barrier.

Energy Efficient Double Glazing

Hypothetically, if you invest in Double Glazing this winter, your expensive energy bills will decrease. It’s that simple. But, how does Double Glazing save you money on your heating bills? And, how much can you look to save?

Did you know that you lose between 10% and 20% of your total energy loss per month through inefficient Windows and Doors? That can rack up to be a hefty sum of money over a long, cold, bitter winter.

Double Glazing works by trapping a layer of air between two panes of glass. The space between the glass isn’t big enough for the air to circulate, so it doesn’t. Instead it acts as a thermal barrier, preventing cold air from seeping through and stopping your expensive heating from leaving your Essex home.

Our Double Glazing products are installed by our in house team of professionals. With over thirty years of experience serving the local community we are certain that you will be totally  satisfied. We promise minimal disturbance whilst the work is carried out. We clean up after ourselves, leaving your Essex home exactly as we found it – Asides from brand spanking new, energy efficient Double Glazing!

Double Glazing That’s Easily Maintained

Once installed, our Double Glazing units require little to no maintenance at all. To keep your Double Glazing in pristine condition, Oakland recommend washing the uPVC frame with hot soapy water once a month or so. That’s all you have to do.

Your brand new Double Glazing Windows will never need painting. What’s more, the uPVC frames are scratch resistant. All working mechanisms of the uPVC Window are cleverly built into the frame. This intelligent design benefits your new uPVC window in a couple of ways.

Firstly, encasing the hinges and locks within the frame keeps them out the way of harmful and corrosive weather conditions. The second reason, safety. Building the locks and hinges into the frame protects children from trapping their fingers within the mechanisms. It also makes it a lot harder for anybody to gain entry from the outside.

Working with Eurocell

When you choose Oakland Home Improvements to install your Double Glazing, you choose to work with one of the most trusted names in the industry, Eurocell. Eurocell are market leaders of uPVC products, based right here in the UK.

Since 1974, Eurocell have invested in developing uPVC frames that meet the strict demands of architects, specifiers, fabricators and installers. Our uPVC frames also benefit home owners, by boosting their properties energy efficiency.

Eurocell’s headquarters are based in Derbyshire. They boast a huge, purpose-built eighty thousand sq ft extrusion and tool-making facility. Just to give you an idea of the scale of Eurocell’s manufacturing demand, they have a 260,000 sq ft area, dedicated to stock holding.

By choosing Oakland, you choose to work with Eurocell. A company with other forty two years experience in building, designing and manufacturing the best uPVC frame available.

Secure Double Glazing

As professional installation engineers, we have a responsibility in committing ourselves to your security. So, what measures do we take to ensure that your uPVC windows remain resilient when faced with a possible break in?

For starters, internal beading. All of our Double Glazing windows are internally beaded, making it near on impossible for would be intruders to remove the glass from the outside.

What’s more, our hook shaped locks are embedded within the frame. Placing our secure locking systems within the uPVC frame makes it a lot harder for people to tamper with them. So long as the window is shut, the lock cannot be reached.
