The same passion held by organisations such as English Heritage and the National Trust for promoting and protecting Englands magnificent historic environments is at the very heart of the Longden range. Leaderflush Shapland's approach to conservation and expertise in replicating original features are widely recognised by architects, conservation experts and the aforementioned organisations, English Heritage and the National Trust.
The Longden range of solid timber panelled doors is particularly suited to the restoration of historic and traditional buildings of all types. Able to meet modern performance criteria for fire resistance, smoke control, security and sound reduction, Longden solid timber doorsets can help ensure the longevity of our historic buildings. For example, fire resistant doorsets are the most effective means of protecting historic buildings from the spread of fire and smoke, without the damaging after-effects of sprinkler systems.
With a tradition of quality which has its origins in the 19th century, many historic listed buildings including the beautiful Sudbury Hall, have relied on Longdens traditional craftsmanship and expertise to maintain and preserve their heritage. Other notable projects include Buckingham palace, the former Patent Office and Weston Park Museum.
