While all doors provide some form of security barrier just because a product is marketed as a home security product it does not mean it is. In fact when it comes to home security many doors marketed as "home security screens" fall way short of security industry standards. A point well noted by the National Security Screens Association (NSSA) and the Australian Security Industry Association Limited. So how do you pick a good home security screen door from a bad one? What do you need to look for in a good security screen door? When purchasing a home security screen door there are several features of the door which need to be considered including the materials the door frames are made from grille strength mesh type the number of hinges and the locking devise used.
Therefore it is crucial that when you are considering a new security or screen door that it adheres to this national accepted standard. If it doesnt you can regard it as an inferior product and one that will not be able to to withstand the determined attempts of an intruder nor provide you and your family with the security you are looking for. Standards Australia also emphasise the importance of installation in ensuring the effectiveness of a security screen door or window (AS5040). The overall strength of a screen door or window grille depends on the integrity of the door or window frame and the use of strong and appropriate fastenings and hinges.
An interesting aspect that is available to those who opt to look for this information online is that websites give the provision of creating virtual screen door designs which will be custom made. These designs are then forwarded to the manufacturers of the screen doors. This done and the payment made the door can be expected to arrive home for its installation within 10 days to 2 weeks. You can select from a wide range of screen door forms. They are not limited in design or in style. The classic type of door allows for it to be opened on hinges that are placed on one side. The split hinges afford for opening the door at the centre since it has hinges placed on both sides of the door. The Dutch style is split halfway horizontally.
You can still enjoy high functionality of both bays by moving the screens according to their railings. If your garage doesnt have enough room for sliding screen doors use pull down screens -- just like window shades. The cassette is mounted at the top of the door opening and you can simply pull down the screen all the way to the bottom. My personal favorite is the roll-up screens; they dont use framing and are perfect for combining with other garage door hardware. When I want to have privacy and maximum security I simply close my steel door shut. As soon as I want to work inside my garage I simply open the door and roll down the screen. It also has a zippered opening -- I can walk in and out while the screen is down -- and it is very practical to use. When you dont need the screen door simply roll it up and you are all set; no additional storage space or handlings needed.
