Security Door vs Safety Door
What is the difference between a security door or a safety door? And if you’re in South Sydney, why do you need to know?
Some key differences are the style, design and colour to suit your home but both security doors and safety doors provide key benefits and limitations that you need to be aware of to make an informed decision.
A safety door or also commonly known as a screen door, provides you with an aluminium frame, aluminium grill design and colour for your home. Although the appearance is nice, the door only adds as a deterrent to potential unwanted visitors.
Aluminium is sturdy but not unbreakable and if accompanied by standard fly-mesh it can easily be torn or broken.
A security door provides you with added strength, ideal for entrances of your home to protect against unwanted visitors. With an reinforced aluminium frame, the door is accompanied with a stainless steel woven mesh and a triple-lock to ensure unwanted visitors cannot enter when locked.
The stainless steel woven mesh has been developed and tested by Macarthur Home Improvements, security door experts in South Sydney, as one solid piece. The mesh is so strong, it does not require an added aluminium design. The door offers a clean-cut look to your home.
