When it comes to renovating a home you’ve just moved into, or one you’ve been in for a while, it’s traditional to start with the bathroom, bedrooms and kitchen. But there are other changes you make that can punch well above their weight.
New doors and windows can help to bring the outside in and add plenty of light exactly where you need it. Even better, they can do all this while making your home safer, quieter, cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
The latest steel doors such as those from Fabco are perfect for opening up your home. They’re especially great for rooms linking to patios and gardens, so you can blur the boundaries between indoor and outdoor spaces. There’s little better than the sun streaming in as you relax in your lounge or throwing open the doors as you enjoy a family breakfast in the kitchen.
But one concern people have is that they’re not as secure as traditional solid wooden doors. This isn’t true. The latest doors come with multi-point locking, which is a significant upgrade on traditional single locks, securing the door at various points.
There’s also the added peace of mind that comes from doors with PAS24:2016 certification, which means the doors are monitored to comply with enhanced security performance requirements – Fabco supply this certification on request.
As an added bonus, some insurance companies will lower premiums if you install multi-points locks. It’s win-win.
Windows on the world
The same security levels also apply to Fabco’s stylish range of windows. They combine safety with superior durability and slim sightlines allowing plenty of light in and delivering a contemporary look at the same time.
Of course, security and light aren’t the only performance concerns you might have about windows. Which is why it’s also great to know that Fabco’s windows (and doors) now exceed the industry standard for energy ratings. In fact, they’re the most thermally efficient and secure W20 doors and windows in the world.
They comply with all Part L regulations about conservation of fuel and power and come with a Thermal Energy Rating of ‘B’ as standard. That will keep your home warmer during the colder months and help to cut down on energy use and bills. The fact that they’re made from 100% recycled steel will also help to raise the environmental profile of your home.
