Door security is an essential factor to consider when you’re buying doors for your home. The reason for this is quite simple. Your doors are not just a point of entry for welcome parties, they’re also supposed to keep unwanted visitors out.
There are three aspects that come into play in door security. These are the strength of the door, the double glazing installation, and the security systems installed in the door.
The strength of the door plays a huge role in the security of your home. The more resilient the door, the more difficult it is to damage or break down. For this reason, uPVC and composite doors are highly recommended for enhanced door security. Both of these door types are known to be highly secure because of their innate strength.
Composite doors are made up of an amalgamation of materials to give you the best of each. They normally have a timber core that lays the foundation of the structure. This is what gives them their robustness.
This layer is reinforced with a layer of foam for insulation, and a Glass Reinforced Plastic layer for superficial protection. The GRP layer protects the door from scratches and the ravages of adverse weather conditions. It gives these doors a longer life, and makes them extremely difficult to tamper with.
Doors made out of uPVC benefit from the superior strength of the material. Unplasticised polyvinyl chloride is a rigid material. Unlike PVC, it is resistant to chemical corrosion, making it an ideal material for doors and windows. It is a lightweight yet strong, giving your door security that is quite high.
The uPVC doors that our suppliers have on offer maintain a unique profile that is broken up into multiple chambers. In addition to providing exceptional thermal efficiency, it acts as reinforcement for the structure. This gives it additional stability and makes these doors exceptionally strong.

As part of the door security installation, installers will ensure that the hinges and hardware on the door are concealed, especially when the door is shut.
In addition to keeping intruders out, the doors are also made up of tight seals that ensure no draught, water, or sound can make it inside.
Installation of your double glazing can affect your door security to a great extent. Proper installation ensures that the door cannot be easily tampered, especially from the outside.
Features like concealed hardware and superior sealing result in doors that cannot be removed or broken in by burglars easily.
It is for this reason we ensure that our network of installers are all reliable and trustworthy. We provide prices from installers that are registered with reputable organisations like FENSA and CERTASS. As a result, the doors they install rate highly for door security.
Door security systems are the most important aspect of your home protection. They work together with the other two aspects to make sure no unwanted visitors manage to get in. Door security systems include locks and other hardware upgrades that make it impossible for the door to be opened when you don’t want it.
We make sure to work only with suppliers that can offer cutting-edge door security installations as a standard. In addition, many suppliers offer upgrades that allow you to enhance your door security even more.
These security systems include:
Most of our recommended suppliers offer high-quality cylinder locks. With these, you won’t have the problem of lock snapping. They are normally used in conjunction with other security features like multi-point locks and mortice locks.
The Euro profile cylinder lock is an integral part of most uPVC and composite doors and windows.
Rim Cylinder Locks are a great way to improve your door security. These work alongside night-latches on external timber doors. If you want to be sure about the quality of the rim cylinder lock, make sure it adheres to British Standards. A good way to check would be to see if it has the Kitemark.
