With lots of talk about mesh type, structural grades and screen thickness, it can be difficult to determine how these come together and what creates a quality screen door. It is important to have an understanding of your needs and the options available, so you can make the best choice – one that results in a lasting investment for your home or business.
First, What Are the Benefits of Selecting a High-Quality Security Door
Security screen doors should allow you to open your home or business, increasing ventilation while providing an added level of security. A good security screen door is often more secure than the original solid door in many homes.
A good quality security door will deter crime before it even happens. Too often theft occurs when a door was left open or unlocked, and petty thieves take advantage of an opportunity. By creating a high barrier to entry for your home, even thieves with a bit more determination will not try to break in. Quality security doors should take a perpetrator a long time and effort to overcome, if they are able to at all, meaning most thieves will move on and leave you undisturbed.
Quality doors add value to our home and provide lasting investment. You will benefit from decreased insurance rates that come with a well-protected business. You will have the peace of mind that you have protected your family from unwanted intruders.
What Should I Look For in a Quality Security Door?
One of the most important factors to consider is the construction and manufacturing of the door. Due to patent restrictions each company each has their own design and way of securing the mesh within their framing systems. It is this construction process that distinguishes a well-designed and secure product from a poorly performing one.
Mesh type is a factor in determining quality, but plays a smaller role in comparison to construction technique. If a product is poorly constructed then choosing a marine-grade mesh over a structural grade mesh becomes a moot point. However, mesh strength and thickness is important when looking at impact testing and knife shear results, so a thicker stronger mesh means it will take longer for a perpetrator to penetrate.
Proper installation is another important factor in security door quality. It is important that the door is custom made for your home, and that installation meets the Australian Standards
