Sliding security doors are the perfect option for those wanting to add an extra level of protection to their home or business. They are typically installed to the exterior brickwork of a backyard sliding glass door, and are available in a range of styles, colours and mesh materials to suit your home or business.
With an average of more than 150,000 offences against property each year in Western Australia (on average over the last 5 years), they have become a common place in WA homes. Can you afford to not have one?
Factors to Consider
A backyard sliding security door will typically be accompanied by a security screen on your front door and/or side door/s.
You should initially consider the style and colour scheme of the exterior of your home, and make sure that you select a product to complement these items.
More importantly, you’ll want to select security screens or doors that offer a sufficient level of protection. After all, this is your primary reason for adding them to your home or business.
Finally, it’s important to select the right supplier and installer for your individual requirements. They should offer a free measure and quote, along with a current police license and comprehensive insurance.
Focus on local companies that can supply and install the screens, and boast an excellent online reputation. Aim to secure at least 3 quotes so you have a good idea of what products are on offer and a price that is fair and reasonable.
Frequently Asked Questions for Sliding Security Doors
How Much do they Cost?
The cost of a screen door will depend on several factors including –
Type of Mesh
316 stainless steel is the premium option within Australia offering superior strength and durability. Perforated aluminium is another more affordable option, which still passes Australian standards. It’s important to remember that different types of mesh will also offer varying levels of privacy, airflow and visibility.
Type of Lock
Premium quality locks will obviously also incur more expense. This is often an item that customers fail to consider when selecting a screen, yet it is typically the first thing an intruder will attempt to break.
Size of Screen
Larger doors obviously require more materials and are proportionality more expensive.
Pet doors can be included which incur an additional cost. Other features can include self-closers, privacy mesh, pet mesh and more.
How Strong are the Sliding Security Screens?
Within Australia all sliding security doors should, as a minimum, meet Australian standards. The standards include a vigorous series of tests to analyse the strength of the mesh, frame and locks.
What is the Most Popular Brand within Australia?
Invisi-Gard security doors have a tried and tested reputation in Australia as high quality screens that significantly exceed Australian standards, while not breaking the bank. Their premium offering Invisi-Max is the “big daddy” which offers protection from cyclonic winds up to 356km/h.
