Doorstuff have recently hired a new Deputy Head of Security, Tintin the Parsons Terrier. His security duties include searching people’s bags for nibbles, chewing shoelaces and generally annoying our Head of Security, Minka the Labradoodle. Our new security member comes in at a whopping 30cm tall and weighs a staggering 8lbs so don’t even think about messing with him.

On the same domain as the old website, this platform promises improved functionality on smart phones and tablets as well as the reassurance of a secure server for the complete site, not just the payment areas. In addition to our complete range of quality door hardware, there are some exciting new product offerings, and additional technical data, drawings and PDFs. If you are familiar with the old site, the new one has been designed to work in a similar way with all your favourite categories in place, but if you need assistance our expert team are on hand for telephone support on 0207 099 2822.
Some of the team photographed in the sunshine outside our Teignmouth HQ. We took this photo for an article the Plymouth Herald are writing about Trading Standards’ Buy With Confidence scheme, of which we have been a proud member for 8+ years. Accreditation for the scheme involves being audited by Trading Standards for business practices and customer satisfaction – they even contact a random sample of our customers to make sure we’re the “good eggs” we try to be.

Spotted – this morning one of ‘our’ delivery drivers (ASPRAY 24) going the extra mile to deliver in the snow. This chap had parked on a layby at the main road and was setting off on foot up a snowy track into our village carrying his parcels. What a star – proving they will get to you if at all possible!
Monday March 19th: We’re not able to dispatch today due to the snow, and we’re on a reduced skeleton crew due to limitations on local travel, so do bear with us, normal service will be resumed ASAP!
