Matching Doors to Provide Security and Privacy

These eye-catching doors help transform the outdoor space, entrance door and garage door of this home.


Security and privacy – two essential features for Jayne Gildersleve and her partner when it came to choosing their new front door.

Living in a quiet part of Linslade for 30 years, the couple thought the front door and garage door of their detached home needed updating. However, it wasn’t enough for the replacements to look good – they needed to be well made and have secure locking systems to keep out intruders.

Jayne said: “We wanted a front door that was a lot more secure but also gave us privacy. The old one had a large pane of glass, which we didn’t like.”

“I’d heard about composite doors and when our daughter had one fitted, we decided it was the right one for us. We also wanted a smarter garage door to complement the front door.”

Jayne discovered SWR through a Google search and was impressed with our newly updated website – especially the section for downloading brochures. The customers also liked our online configurator and used it to design their ideal front door.

The couple knew what they wanted thanks to the information on our website. They had to be sure, however, so gave SWR a ring. Speaking to one of our sales team confirmed that a Solidor Composite Entrance Door and Steel Garage Door from Garador were best for their home.

We visited the property to get the right dimensions and provide an accurate quote. Our home surveys are free, with no obligation to buy if the customer doesn’t wish to proceed. However, we agreed on a final price and arranged an installation date.

The Products

The couple settled on a Solidor Door from their Italia Collection. All Solidor products are 48mm thick, which is 10% more than other brands. The Italia Collection also features 19 exclusive designs and a solid timber core obtained from sustainable sources.

Jayne and her partner insisted on a high-quality locking system and Solidor delivers. All Solidor products come fitted with the Ultion lock as standard – the ultimate in locking protection. In fact, Ultion outperforms their closest rivals in a range of different tests.

The Italia is Solidor’s most luxurious door, so the Windsor from Garador was the ideal complement. It’s made of galvanised steel and has a clean, vertical design that’s perfect for modern homes. Also, the customers chose anthracite grey finishes for a matching and elegant look to the front of their house.

“What I like about the products are the design features. We know the front door is very secure with its locking system, and it looks so smart alongside the garage door” Jayne explained.

The Installation

We fitted both doors on the agreed date with no major issues. Another company had carried out work on their driveway which, combined with the new installations, has transformed their home.

Jayne said: “The service and installation was perfect from start to finish. We were informed every step of the way regarding deposits, payments and dates. The fitters were also professional and courteous.”

“We are very likely to recommend SWR to friends and family. I have a smile on my face every time I approach our house now. It gives me great joy looking at our lovely new doors, which have improved the look of our house immensely.”
