Benefits

No security measure is perfect, but a good door will certainly help when it comes to the protection of your home.  Just the mere presence of this door can help to deter potential criminals for your home.  It is much like a warning sign, it tells burglars that your are serious about the security of your home and they will be more likely to continue on to a home that is easier for them to enter.

These doors don’t solely stop intruders, they can also create a barrier for pets and young children to keep them from exiting your home by accident.  Other benefits that you will get from your security doors is that it helps to prevent insects from entering your home, and also adds extra protection of your entry door from the outside elements. All these benefits are great but how do you know what door to buy?

Type Of Door

Aluminum is the most common material that is used for security doors today.  There some doors that are steel-framed, but these are becoming rarer, mainly due to the fact that still can rust.  Many advancements have been made when it comes to the newer generations of aluminum framed doors with stainless steel mesh.  Many top brands when it comes to security doors are made using the aluminum frame.

Doors with a steel frame tend to be heavier and most bulky.  The extra weight of the door means that further control, as well as care, are needed.  For example, when closing a steel-framed door you need to be careful around children so that it does not result in injury from the door.  Even though extra care needs to be taken, some people enjoy steel-framed doors and appreciate that the door is heavier and seems more secure.

Frame

One of the most important parts of a security door is the fame.  The strength of the frame, as well as how the door’s infill is secured, define the quality of the door.  Security doors that are cheaper often have a weak and thin receiver channel liming to the fame of the door. 

The screen of your security door will only be as safe as the method that is used for fixing the screen to its frame.  Most commonly you will find that pressure retention systems and rivets are used for securing the frame and the screen together.   You may need to ask a few questions about the security of the door if you are uncertain, after all it is better to take the extra time to ensure you are getting a secure door, than to end up with a door that is far less secure than you hoped for.
