There was a time when houses in America and many other parts of the world were never locked. Today, with all our advancements and progress, crime has unfortunately also advanced to such a high degree, leaving a door unlocked is an open invitation to crime.
One of the best safety measures for the home is steel security doors; not heavy, ugly looking cages but elegant and well crafted doors, which enhance the aesthetics of the house. These doors are attractive and don’t look out-of-place, blending instead with the property and even enhancing the overall appearance.
With steel security doors, as with most things, your options are quite wide ranging; steel security doors come in a range of styles, designs and colors. Some of the doors are fitted with tempered glass, which is very useful in keeping out the elements like wind and rain.
A burglar attempting to break into a house fitted with steel security doors is in for a hard time. When equipped with real heavy duty hinges and locks, these doors are virtually impossible to open short of blasting! Some of the models come fitted with screens to allow the flow of air into the house while keeping the bugs on the outside.
Steel security doors can also have pneumatic closers installed; they will shut automatically behind you, however, it is recommended you don’t take anything for granted. When entering and exiting your house make sure the door is closed tight behind you. You can adjust the pneumatic closer to set the door to close or open at the speed you want – not too quick or too slow.
Steel security doors are made of heavy gauge steel to provide maximum security. The additional grill work and security bars are there to provide additional security and to make the door look attractive.
You can find steel security doors for most exits ranging from front doors (even double doors), sliding doors, patio doors and French doors. Make sure you choose heavy duty locks, deadbolts and irreversible hinges. Most models are available with shatter proof glass.
From residents to commercial offices and warehouses, steel doors are the first choice for the security conscious.
