What kind of door is best for security?
Everyone should feel safe in their own home and be able to trust that their belongings and loved ones are secure at home. But, unfortunately, with crime rates on the rise across Australia, it’s important to have security features in place at your property to ensure your home isn’t targeted by thieves or prowlers.
In 30% of break-ins, the thief is able to gain access to the targeted property through the front door. So, if you’re looking at improving your home security, the best places to start are at your front door. Security doors are effective at deterring thieves as well as providing your household with a level of personal protection, by allowing you to see and speak to someone at your front door without allowing them access to your home.
The process of choosing and installing a security door doesn’t need to be complicated, however, there are some important factors to take into consideration before you make your choice. Remember to always seek expert advice if you’re unsure of anything!
Always choose a reliable security door provider
It’s important to take advice from a reliable security door provider to guide you through your choice of security door as well as assist you by providing professional installation services. Look for a provider with a wide range of security doors to ensure that you will be able to find a door that suits your home and security needs.

Consider what you want from a protection point of view from your security door
Do you want a top-of-the-range security door, or are you restricted by budget? Do you live alone or in a high crime area and want a security door that will allow you to answer your front door to strangers without being vulnerable? Would you like your security screen to stop visitors from being able to see in? One-way mesh screens can provide improved privacy to your home, allowing you to see out without letting others see into your house from the outside.
