Choosing a Security Screen or Door: What You Should Know

Choosing a Security Screen or Door: What You Should Know 1

Whilst you may have an alarm installed to secure your property from any type of unwanted intrusion, you also must make sure that your portals are safe and secure. That is why adding a security door is vitally important.

Security Screens

One place where you can start is with the screen. A security mesh can be added easily into a perimeter door frame, thereby reducing the chance for corrosion. Screens that are designed for security purposes are manufactured expressly for both commercial and residential applications. These types of screens can also be included in the following applications:

  • Hinged doors
  • Sliding doors
  • Patio enclosures
  • Emergency escapes
  • Windows
  • Pool fencing

Security screens and enclosures can be custom-made and sized to the customer’s precise specifications. You can also have doors designed by adding aluminium cast panels for a more classic appearance. When you choose the right type of door, you can add a security feature that also enhances your décor.

Backed by a Warranty

Colour matching is not a problem with security doors or window frames as they are offered in a full array of powder-coated hues and anodised finishes. Most security screens and doors come with a warranty as long as the installation is maintained in accordance to the manufacturer’s care and maintenance requirements.

Usually, the maintenance for a security door consists of interval cleaning of the door or window product. As a result, top-of-the-line Bunbury security doors require very little in the way of maintenance. You only need to wash the product with a mild soap and rinse it off with lukewarm water occasionally. This simple cleaning can keep the door looking pristine for many years.

The intervals between cleaning a door will differ based on where you live. For example, if you live in a coastal region, the periods between cleaning are shorter than if you live inland. When you buy a security door, you receive maintenance and care instruction so you know how best to care for the door.

Only Use Mains Water

For example, one of the specifications for care stipulates the use of mains water. Only mains water can be used as bore, tank, or recycled water can trigger corrosion. Also, care needs to be taken to avoid getting water into the main lock and the auxiliary three-point lock system of this type of door. In addition, avoid using abrasive cleaners and strong detergents. These types of solvents scratch and mar door surfaces, which also increases the possibility of a corrosion problem. Periodic lubrication is suggested with a graphite powder. Aerosols or liquid lubrication can lead to corrosion and the ultimate damage of the door’s lock.

Maintenance intervals for security doors are six months in mild environments or three months where the environment is more moderate. Tropical environments require maintenance monthly. Mild environments include those areas that are located away from the coast or any urban locale. Moderate environments include those areas that are part of urban setting and are situated inland, away from heavy industrial activities. Tropical environment are those regions that are located about 15Km from the eastern coast or 10km from the western coast in Australia.
