The world isn’t what it used to be. Society was once a safe, caring space where people looked after each other and looked out for one another. Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse somewhere along the way. This means that now, more than ever, it’s important to invest in security. This can mean car alarms, security systems, digital security measures and more.
Today, we’re going to take a look at security doors and go through seven benefits of getting them installed.
1. To Deter Intruders
Criminals who target houses generally look out for homes that are easily accessible. A crook likes nothing more than an easy target, so if your home’s unprepared for a robbery, there’s a chance that you might fall victim to one. A sturdy security door and screen makes a strong, firm statement. It says: “Criminal! Try an easier, softer target!”.
2. It Will Beef Up Your Security
A security door or doors work to boost your home’s security and they do this in many ways. They are generally made from steel, or wrought iron, making their frames strong, sturdy and durable. When compared to a wooden or plastic frame, they are quite difficult to get through. As well as being harder to break into, a steel-framed door will last a good while longer as well.
3. It’s All about the Locks
A good security door will have a strong, good quality lock. The best security doors will have both heavy-duty keyed locks and a deadbolt. Deadbolts are important because they provide a huge amount of security. Also, if you can, get a door with non-removable pin hinges.
A good security door should also come with a screen. This screen comes made from stainless steel mesh and can withstand attempts to puncture, pierce or cut into it.
5. Add Value to Your Property
A security door is also an investment into the future value of your home. This is great if you don’t plan to live in the one place forever. An upgrade like a security door can help to increase the asking price when, further down the line, you decide to sell up and move on.
Due to their durable nature, a good quality security door is fire retardant. In case of a house fire, a security door will help to stop the spread of the flames.
