The grill should be at least 7mm thick and be joined at all joins by welds. A solid grill is only good if it is well secured to the security door frame. A good indicator of strength is to look at whether the grill has been riveted on or welded with welding being the stronger alternative. The final consideration is the home security door lock. A proper home security door lock should have a five pin cylinder or equivalent and be key operated. To add strength to the overall strength of the home security door I recommend a door with a three point lock. The three point home security door lock makes it extremely difficult to rip the door from its hinges while also spreading the load of the force applied by the person attempting to break through the door. Home security screen doors are an important piece of your overall home security system and are your front line defense against would be intruders. If considering home security screens make sure you check all the features of the product as a weakness in one area of construction n can have a significant impact on both your personal safety and the protection of your valuables.
There are 2 types unsupported screen doors which are supported by nothing more than the screen itself and supported screen storm doors which are usually partially supported by the frame of the screen or storm door itself. Unsupported screen doors are recommended for smaller and less aggressive pets only. A pet that is too large or is aggressive is more likely to damage the sensitive screen when trying to enter or leave the house. Partially supported storm doors such as those made by Hale are fastened to the bottom and side of the frame. Of course this means that the unit can only be installed on the bottom left or right hand side of the door. Pet patio doors are also not likely to have locks the logic being that locked doors will encourage your pet to paw or scratch your screen instead.
For added protection make sure your home security door hinges are recessed this will minimize the gap between the door and the frame making the door more difficult to jimmy. The home security screen door should have stainless steel mesh and be attached to the door frame using either stainless steel screws or Pac clamps. The ideal home security mesh is either marine grade 316 mesh or 304-grade mesh. There are several mesh grades available on the market so check the strength rating to make sure it is at least equivalent to the 316 or 304 grade mesh. Users of the different grades of mesh will argue over which is stronger but apply the above check and you can not go wrong.
Matching the door to the entryway will make it look like it was designed for that area rather than simply thrown in as an afterthought. Take into account the style color and design of the door and overall entryway where the screen door will be installed. When looking for the perfect one take into account what type of material to use. The frames of screens can be made from a few different materials. Many people prefer metal and vinyl because they are easy to clean and maintain. However some people feel that this option is not as visually pleasing. Some prefer to go with wood frames as they tend to look nicer and add a certain aesthetic value to the entryway and entire home. Figure out the type of viewing style that is desired.
