Many homeowners turn to expensive alarm systems when upgrading their home security, rather than searching for a solution to stop burglars before they enter. Far from the elaborate criminal plots in movies, the research shows the majority of home break-ins occur through the front and back doors. So if you want to bulk up your home security, security doors should be at the top of your list.
Not only are these doors effective home protection options, but they also offer additional perks that raise the value of your home. Keep reading for the top 5 reasons security doors are an important home investment.
To consider a purchase a true investment, durability matters. Strong sturdy materials such as high-grade stainless steel and aluminum are used for most security doors. These materials don’t only offer an added barrier between your home and burglars but will also weather the elements. For example, Amplimesh uses Supascreen® 316 Marine Grade Stainless Steel and has been tested to withstand bushfires and cyclonic debris, and is also suitable for coastal areas.
When the weather is fine, most people want to open their homes up to enjoy the fresh air. Unfortunately keeping doors and windows open can be a security risk wherever you live. Security doors and screens allow you to open your home and experience your surroundings without worrying about potential intruders. Homeowners with back doors or patio enclosures should consider installing security doors for more than just their front entry.
Enhanced ventilation provided by open doors and windows is as refreshing for your home as it is for you. The consistent flow of air is critical for preventing mold, and families can even safely let their house air out while away from the property.
Burglars aren’t the only intruders security doors can protect you from, they also keep out bugs and pests!
Increased Home Value
Installing an attractive, high-quality security door is not only a good safety investment but a smart future investment. Enhance the value of your home with attractive, durable doors, that have the added bonus of security. This is a great sales feature which promotes the feeling of comfort and #safeathome for future buyers. The same idea applies if you are going to rent, sublet, or even open your home to Airbnbers!
Security doors fitted on entrances around your property especially the front door, can increase privacy and peace of mind. Some security doors can be constructed with special mesh to make it more difficult for passers-by to see inside. The magic behind this design is like a two-way mirror effect, where you have privacy, but still have an unobstructed view of the outdoors -or whoever may be knocking at your door.
A Security Solution For Every Door
Security doors come in a variety of options with specialized features. Screens can be fitted for hinged, sliding, stacker doors or bi-folding doors and customized in the color of your choice. For homeowners new to the world of security doors a good place to start is what type of mesh you want. Two examples are woven stainless steel mesh, and perforated aluminum.
When deciding on a security door you want to make sure you choose one that has been security tested for multiple types of situations, such as dynamic impact, jemmy attacks, knife shearing, probing, and pull testing. You can be sure that doors that meet the Australian Standards for Security doors will fully protect you and your family in your home. Amplimesh Supascreen exceeds the Australian standards for security screen products, and EHI, proud members of the National Security Screen Association, are Australia’s Top Amplimesh Dealer!
Amplimesh Supascreen® Security Screens: Made from high tensile 316 marine grade stainless steel and allows an unobstructed 156-degree angle view of the outside.

Both door designs have a 3 point locking mechanism and use a heavy-duty aluminium frame, with our patented ‘pressure fit’ system used to fix a high tensile 316 marine grade stainless-steel (SupaScreen®) or 5052 marine grade aluminium alloy (IntrudaGuard®) mesh in place. This prevents galvanic corrosion caused by dissimilar metals coming into contact with each other, while also improving the look of our security doors, with no visible screws or fixings spoiling your view.
