6 Key Elements of a High Quality Front Security Door
A front security door is an extremely important addition to any home, offering peace of mind as a tamper-proof barrier against break-ins, as well as an excellent way to allow airflow into the home while keeping out intruders or pests. With a wide range of door options available, however, it can be difficult to distinguish between a door that will protect your home for generations and a door that won’t last.
When purchasing your new security door, here are 6 key elements to look out for that will ensure your home looks sleek and feels safe for years to come.
Importance Of A Quality Security Door
A security door is not something that you would simply want to purchase for a low price or remain uncertain about the quality of your purchase. Peace of mind and security are priceless, and are worth spending the extra dollar or taking the time to be sure of your purchase.
A quality door will ensure your home is secure. Made to last for generations, you can also trust that your door will continue protecting your home for years to come with little fade or wear.
6 Key Elements Of A High Quality Security Screen Door
1. Locally made
The best quality doors are generally made locally, in Australia. If you order locally, there is also the added bonus that, should any complications arise, you are able to go straight to the provider to correct any faults and for maintenance.
2. Made to Australian Standards
As explained by the National Security Screen Association, quality doors must be compliant with Australian Standards AS 5039, and have passed Australian Standards AS 5041 which involves passing a variety of tests conducted by an independent accredited laboratory.
AS 5041 tests include:
- Dynamic Impact Test
- Pull or Probe Test
- Jemmy Test
- Knife Sheer Test
- Sheer Test
Doors that comply with AS 5039 are granted a Compliance Label, certifying that they have been verified by an accredited laboratory. It is recommended that you look out for the AS 5039 Compliance Label.
3. Three-point Locking System
A 3-point locking system is the standard on any door that is compliant, as this system is robust and tamper-proof. Multi-point lock doors offer a significant increase in security that makes it much more difficult for intruders to enter the home.
4. Quality Materials
A door that is built to protect should be made of durable materials. Aluminium or marine grade 316 stainless steel mesh doors offer the ultimate safety solution for enhanced strength. Security Plus doors are manufactured with Invisi-Gard high tensile steel meshes for premium security.
5. Quality Finish
A quality finish will ensure your door is not only immune to intruders, but also immune to fade, wear and chipping over time. Security Plus supplies Colorbond colours that are tested and refined in Australian conditions to last.
Investing in a door with a warranty will ensure that even if there are faults or manufacturing errors, these will be able to be replaced or repaired by your provider at no extra cost. Security Plus offers up to 7 years of warranty for aluminium frames and door structures, as well as a 5-year warranty for steel screens, cast aluminium grilles, and steel grilles and doors with extra rust protection.
