Federation, colonial, or decorative security doors are the perfect way to secure your home while adding traditional style and sophistication.
WHAT IS FEDERATION/COLONIAL STYLE?
Federation/colonial architecture is a style that was popular in Australia during the period from 1890 to 1915. It refers to the Federation of Australia on January 1st 1901, when Australian colonies became the Commonwealth of Australia.
The style was influenced by the art and crafts movement at the turn of the century and is said to also be drawn from the Australian environment. Federation-style homes embraced the outdoors with enhanced garden views from the interior and outdoor verandahs.
Decorative security doors are said to be in a federation/colonial style because of the aluminium grilles which consist of thin bars that often come to a point and involve floral arrangements.
THE MAIN BENEFITS OF DECORATIVE SECURITY DOORS
The aluminium grille that sits above the mesh on a decorative security door makes it unique. This grille has several key benefits –
A Timeless Look
The decorative patterns of the aluminium grille create a recognisable aesthetic look that has stood the test of time.
This grille also adds an extra security barrier, making it particularly difficult for intruders who try to break through the door using large objects like baseball bats.
Decorative security doors are significantly more visible/obvious, particularly from a distance. This decreases the likelihood of your home being broken into, as intruders are often known to case out a home before they try to break in.
THE FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN SELECTING DECORATIVE SECURITY DOORS
Here are some handy factors to consider when trying to select the best decorative security door and supplier/installer for your requirements –
- Find a supplier that provides an end-to-end solution so you don’t have to deal with several companies.
- Make sure you select a product that is custom-built to your specification. Off-the-shelf decorative security doors are only available in particular sizes, styles and colours.
- Select a style and colour that matches the look of your home.
- Ensure the mesh you select has the ideal strength, airflow, visibility and privacy level for your individual requirements.
- Always select a decorative security door that meets, if not exceeds, all Australian Standards and has a warranty of at least 5 years.
- Look for a rust-free option that will stand the test of time.
