It is an unpalatable fact that burglary, and intrusions, are an all-too common part of daily life in the UK. Indeed, it is reported that a burglary takes place as much as once every 40 seconds somewhere in the UK. This means that for householders and business owners alike, common-sense security measures are pretty well obligatory; especially if you are on the lookout for a cost-effective insurance package. Aside from insurance, it is psychologically reassuring to know that all reasonable steps have been taken to ensure one’s safety and security. With practical security measures in place, people are freed up to get on with their lives without nagging doubts in the backs of their minds.

  Doors – especially vulnerable to burglars

Recent research indicates that the majority of UK burglars use doors to break into homes. Wooden front doors, whilst popular in homes, do prove vulnerable to various means of forced entry. These include, literally kicking the door down, to bringing a crow bar to the door and levering it off its hinges, thereby gaining entry.

A powerful solution to the vulnerability of wooden doors is offered by steel security doors. These metal doors are made of strong, high-quality steel, and are highly resistant to any kind of attempt at forcing. They resist both battering techniques, crow bars and all kinds of power tools.

Steel security doors – the benefits

The benefits of going the extra mile, and acquiring one or more steel doors, include the following: Steel doors are an effective deterrent. A strategically placed steel door, especially in commercial premises, will usually be sufficient to stop a potential burglar in their tracks. This will especially be the case if a complementary solution for windows is provided, such as metal grilles or bars

Steel security doors are resistant to changing weather conditions, such as extreme heat or cold. Unlike wooden doors, steel doors do not buckle, and are not subject to rot, both of which make a property more vulnerable

Steel security doors are fire resistant. They therefore work particularly well as fire doors, and can be custom-made for that purpose

Steel doors are a more environmentally friendly than other types of door. They last longer than traditional doors and the longer a steel door lasts, the fewer times it will need replacing. Thus, fewer resources will be used, particularly wood, which the world very much needs to conserve. Steel security doors tend to have a lifecycle of 30 to 40 years compared to wooden doors, with their lifespan of around 15 years (though this can be dramatically reduced in burglary hotspots, or in challenging climates).

Versatility of steel security doors

Finally, steel security doors are becoming increasingly attractive and customisable. They are proving their worth not only in industrial and commercial settings, but, for instance, in schools and colleges, and public sector buildings. Moreover, as models become more stylish and open to decorative touches, they are being considered increasingly for use in the home. This is particularly the case regarding front doors, garage doors and internal rooms containing sensitive data.
