The 3 Biggest Myths About Front Security Doors

There are many common myths surrounding security doors, their uses against extreme weather and their overall look. Understanding how these myths are simply myths helps us to realise the ways in which these doors are useful in terms of safety, and in the other ways they enhance the home.

See the three biggest myths surrounding safety doors below:

Myth 1: Screen doors aren’t secure enough

It’s a common belief that security screens won’t hold against forces attempting to break them, and that the mesh is flimsy. Tensile strength is the measurement of force that the mesh wire can withstand. Marine grade 316 stainless steel mesh has a tensile strength of 850 – 900 pascals, meaning it can bear a considerable amount before breaking and will withstand extreme weather conditions.

All our materials are tested to Australian standards. The Austral triple locking system is an extremely secure lock, and all our hinges, locks and handles are high quality.

Myth 2: The safest door options won’t look good

When you think of safety doors, what comes to mind might be the old diamond grilles and basic design. Our unique door range offers a variety of sturdy frames and meshes that are on-trend and modern.

The minimalist design is a favourite amongst designers, and the sleek, polished look is desirable.

Myth 3: It won’t suit my house

There are a range of options in terms of colour and style – there are safety screens to match any home aesthetic. We are sure to have an option that will not only suit, but enhance the look of your home.
