Fireguards for wood-burning stoves February 2013

Fireguards for woodburning stoves

If you’re fortunate enough to have a woodburning stove to keep you and your home warm you may need to protect small children and animals from touching it. Our sturdy, handmade fireguards help to prevent anyone falling onto the hot stove or open fire. We don’t make folding sides on our fireguards as these aren’t effective as guards at all.

Door canopy over bifold doors in grey January 2013

A New Year resolution?

Are you fed up with the rain streaming down your patio doors or new bi-fold doors? If they’re made of wood, you’ve experienced the results of the frames swelling and causing them to jam. A door canopy fitted over any doorway will protect the doors from any rainfall running down the wall onto the doors.

Christmas Cheer

Christmas Cheer Keep the carol singers dry this Christmas with a Scoop door canopy. This lovely image was sent in last week by one of our customers who’s delighted with her Aged finish Scoop door canopy. At this time of year when you may receive more visitors than usual, what better way to keep them dry?

We love this time of year as it gives us the opportunity to sit in front of our roaring log fire with a mug of hot chocolate and slice of cake.

Trick or Door Canopy?

We love the rain April 2013

We love the rain…

What do door canopies and ducks have in common? Okay so you know the answer, but our door canopies will last much longer in the rain than your average duck as they’re made from solid steel and hot dip zinc galvanized to BS EN 1461 . Our door canopies also require far less maintenance and don’t need daily feeding.

Spring is here March 2013

Spring is here

Happy St David’s Day to one and all. This is my sister in her Welsh lady costume just a few years ago… Spring has finally arrived and has brought with it some glorious sunshine. We’ve been out in the garden removing the rotten timber raised beds in our vegetable garden and will be replacing them with our far superior new steel edging.
