Safety

A secure front door is often seen as a must. After all, your doorway represents a weak point, so choosing a robust option can help deter break-ins. Some homeowners may be surprised to learn that twin front doors might not be as secure as a single front door. The middle, where the two doors come together, represent a weak point, and a swift kick could defeat the integrity of the lock.

However, you can mitigate these risks by selecting a lock with a long barrel, allowing the barrel to penetrate deeper into the other door and providing additional stability. Adding interior locking security bars can also help as well as door stop bolts that penetrate into the floor.
