Top 3 Picks for Home Doors That Offer Security
June 2, 2020
Searching for home doors that offer security is becoming a more common thing. No matter how safe your neighborhood is, even for those who live in gated communities, everyone is concerned with the safety and well-being of their family, rightfully so.
Today’s home burglars are a brazen lot. Estimates are that at least 34% of burglars enter directly through the front door and can sweep through your home, taking everything they can carry, in 10 minutes!
Having a strong, well-secured front door is a vital first step in home security. Alarms are a great addition, but in the amount of time it takes for the police to arrive, a burglar can rob your home and be miles away. Door security should be one of your first lines of defense.
What About Those External Steel Security Doors?
No one would deny that steel is very strong, however, no one would also deny that those exterior steel security doors are not only unsightly, they completely block your view to the outdoors.
Steel security doors also ruin the curb appeal of your beautiful home. It’s true that they do send a message to burglars but what do they say about your neighborhood in general? No one wants to live in a home that feels like a prison!
You don’t need to use exterior steel doors to have strong security. At Alumalco, we make super strong, yet lightweight, aluminum doors in a wide variety of styles and colors that will keep you, your family, and your belongings safe from unwanted entry!
Even more so than increasing the curb appeal of your home, our recommendation for the best aluminum security doors offer a beautiful view, all while keeping your family safe.
Here they are, our top 3 picks for door security:
#1 Choice-European Styled Aluminum Doors
With more than 100 different styles to choose from, our wide selection of aluminum door types makes it easy to choose one that best suits your needs.
Whether you choose a solid aluminum door or one with glass inserts, you can’t go wrong. All our doors offer locking systems that feature high quality German mechanisms. You can choose from a 1-point, 3-point, or 5-point locking system.
German engineering means that your security locks are the highest quality and have decades of engineering and testing behind them. This is why the most secure and trusted locking mechanisms in the world are German designed and fabricated.
If you are concerned that using glass inserts or panels will pose a security risk, you should know that Alumalco offers laminated glass, which, as this video shows, is virtually unbreakable by the average burglar, especially without making any sound.
Choosing aluminum doors for your home’s door security is smart. Because they’re fabricated with strong and stable materials that resist forced energy far better than wood, composite, fiberglass, or PVC doors. Aluminum doors will never split, crack, warp, or peel. They also require a minimum amount of maintenance. No more painting, staining, or replacing damaged portions.
Choosing an aluminum door from Alumalco means you can have nearly any color you like, even different colors for interior and exterior if you like. With some door materials, such as PVC or composite, you cannot paint them darker colors for fear of warping. This is not the case with aluminum doors.
All aluminum doors from Alumalco also feature thermal break technology. This means that temperatures from outside will never penetrate inside and vice a versa. Our doors are certified to be airtight and super energy efficient.
In addition, aluminum is one of the most environmentally friendly materials available. If you are concerned about your carbon footprint, aluminum doors would be the greenest option around as this material can be used over and over again.
For those who are interested in the ultimate in viewing area, however, you should take a look at our next choice for door security.
