Who are Merthyr Valleys Homes
Merthyr Valleys Homes (MVH) was launched in March 2009 after tenants voted to transfer their homes to a new not-for profit housing association.
MVH own and manage around 4,300 homes in the Merthyr Valleys area.
With funds supporting the association’s initiative to improve the insulation and thermal efficiency of a group of properties, following a tender programme Warrior Doors were selected to replace the existing timber doors and frames with more energy efficient security doors and screens at a number of their high and low rise buildings.
The objective was to install secure DDA compliant doors that would look good, reduce energy loss and increase security in 11 social housing buildings.
MVH chose white powder coated aluminium door and frame designs, which Warrior installed in communal entrances and walkways, with large glazed areas increasing light and visibility, while ensuring security was maintained with the integration of secure door entry systems.
The housing association and tenants are very pleased with the results.
Warrior’s new entrances have helped to achieve a fresh and contemporary appearance, as well as substantially improving security and tenant safety in the buildings.
