If you're looking for a way to make your home safer and add a touch of decoration, you could install a security screen door. Here are several benefits you can expect to enjoy.
Though the primary purpose of a security door is to make your home safer, it doesn't hurt if it's attractive as well. These barriers don't need to make your home look like a fortress. In fact, because many are so decorative, you might not even realise they're security screens. They come in various colours, such as black, blue and cream, for example. Plus, you'll have diverse grill styles to consider. One possibility is a classic diamond-shaped design. Alternatively, opt for an elegant pattern of scrolls and swirls. If you prefer a minimalist look, choose a geometric array of rectangles. With so many styles on offer, you'll have no problems matching the door to your home's facade.
A security screen door will make answering your door safer. After all, if someone rings the front doorbell, you may open it to a complete stranger. However, a security door provides a barrier between you and the outside, and you can see who's there before letting them in. If you have children in your home, you may especially appreciate the extra protection that a locked security door provides.
Deters and Blocks Criminals
A security door will help to both deter criminals and stop them from breaking through the door. Firstly, just seeing that your home has a security barrier will discourage a lot of burglars, who are often opportunistic in that they prefer easy break-in opportunities. Thus, criminals are more likely to choose a house without a security door than one with one.
In any case, even if a burglar tries to get through the barrier, it's doubtful they'll be successful. A security door must pass a range of tests and comply with Australian standards. For example, testing includes trying to slice through the screen and attempting to ram it open. Only a product that passes a myriad of tests can be sold as a security door.
The mesh on these barriers helps in other ways also. You can leave the solid front door open with the screen door closed and allow the breeze to waft through your home without worrying about security. Additionally, the mesh will keep out mosquitoes and flies.
Thus, security doors are a valuable home improvement. They add a decorative accent to your home while protecting everyone in the house. Additionally, they keep out flies and let refreshing breezes through.
