What to Know about Patio Door Security Bars

Sliding patio doors are a wonderful invention. You can get a beautiful view of your yard and beyond, as well as getting the convenience of a door that’s easy to open and close, without taking up space. However, they can be weak, security-wise.

One of the most vulnerable aspects of a sliding patio door is, ironically, the standard lock—the part of the door that is supposed to be most secure. They can often be difficult to engage so you might just leave it undone which is the exact opposite of what you want in security. You can solve some of the issues with a weak patio door by

  • installing a more secure lock
  • installing more secure or reinforcing the glass
  • installing a patio door security bar

It’s that last option that will solve most patio door security issues. Do you remember growing up and how easy it was to kneel down and grab that long piece of wood used to keep the sliding door from moving? What about now that you’re old(er)? While some security solutions may be beyond your budget, like installing impact-resistant glass, a patio door security bar is an economical option that you really can’t afford to live without.

Pole Position

There are two main locations in which you can place your patio door security bar. The classic space is on the bottom, directly on the track. This keeps the security bar out of sight from the outside, which you might prefer if you don’t want to break the visual line. When the pole is down you’ll be more secure, and when it is up, you’ll be able to slide it open and have access to move through the doorway.

However, some people prefer having their security bar be more obvious, as it’s more likely to be a deterrent if would-be burglars can see it. Having the security bar in the middle of the door is also helpful for people who have trouble bending down. If you have small children, placing the security bar in the middle may keep it out of their reach as well. Many patio door security bars come with childproof locks, if that is a concern, though. Remember that those little eyes are observant and will quickly learn how to open the door so the security bar in the middle can also keep them from running out to the pool area unsupervised.

Made of Materials

Patio door security bars are manufactured in a few different materials although most are made of metals. Common metals used for patio door security bars include steel and aluminum. Aluminum has the advantage of being lightweight, although that doesn’t mean it’s not strong, especially if it’s made of extruded aluminum. Steel is known for its strength and with up-to-date manufacturing processes, the old bland steel designs can have more contemporary appearance, so you’d not stuck with something very ugly in your line of sight. In addition to metal, PVC is a common material used for patio door security bars and these also can vary in how they look and operate.

Whatever the material used, they are all made to be durable and to withstand impacts. Any advantages or disadvantages they have in relation to each other are minimal. And since they’re all economically priced, the patio door security bar you choose will probably come down to minor differences and features. A common, but not universal feature, for example is that some security bars come with rubber stoppers on one end, so they prevent scratching. Also, as mentioned elsewhere, a child lock is a feature you might need to review.

Handle the Hassle

If you are still unsure about whether you need a patio door security bar, because you think it will be a lot of trouble or at least more trouble than it’s worth, let’s discuss that. First, as we’ve already discussed, they’re relatively cheap, so they will more than prove their value. Investing in a patio door security bar will allow you to relax while away from home and enjoy yourself, as well as, when you are home and trying to sleep. Will the neighborhood troublemakers try to get inside? Relax now, because you installed the security bar.

Second, if you’re thinking they’re going to be bothersome because you’ll constantly have to be removing it and putting it back, that’s also untrue. Most are installed so they will lift-up into place and snap into position out of the way. Some patio door security bars can be adjusted, so that you can open and lock your sliding door at a predetermined width or any width you’d like, depending on manufacturer. This means that you won’t miss out on all the wonderful air flow, because you’ll still be able to keep your door secure.

Cheap Security Doors

Your home, office, or apartment building secures your belongings and family. However, these structures cannot do their job effectively in case the doors are not able to keep criminals out. Most modern security doors use door strike reinforcers, deadbolt locks, security chains or security alarms in order to prevent unlawful entry. Doors with peepholes or windows, along with the use of security cameras, provide many homeowners the ability to effectively screen different visitors before a burglar can pick the lock and come into their home. But, an important thing to remember when buying a security door is that its ability to keep out intruders is not solely dependent on its deadbolt, lock, or chain. Rather, the door’s structural durability and strength is crucial to prevent the risk of unauthorized access.   Because of this, some of the best security doors are often made of solid hardwood or metal. When buying a security door, always remember that doors made of plywood or composite materials just are not sturdy and durable enough to make sure your loved ones or family is safe.  As they lack in structural strength, intruders can break into your home by ramming through or kicking in the door.  The most intimidating deterrent is a heavy and visibly thick door that has a robust frame. An effective security door is the right way to send a clear message to potential criminals that your home or office is not going to be an easy mark. To help you make the right buying decision, we will discuss some common types of security doors. read more
