6 reasons why you should install a security door

Not sure whether to invest in a security door for your Perth home? Security doors are undeniably a great way to increase safety and burglar protection, but there’s also a number of other lifestyle benefits to installing a security door. 

To help you decide, let’s take a look at some of the advantages of having a security door in Perth.

1. Peace of mind

While security doors mainly function for safety, they also provide you with peace of mind. With improved security, you have a better chance of deterring burglars as your property isn’t vulnerable to a break in.

When the sea breeze kicks in, most people want to open their windows and doors up to enjoy the fresh air. Unfortunately doing so can present a security risk, no matter where you live. Security doors and screens allow you to open your home without worrying about potential intruders.

2. Privacy

Apart from providing security to your home, security doors also offer privacy to your space. Some security doors like Alu Guard are constructed with a special mesh to make it difficult for passers-by to see inside. 

From within your home you have an unobstructed view of the outdoors, or whoever may be knocking at your door. You don’t have to worry about people looking in, because they won’t be able to see through your security screen door.

Our Perth security doors team can make a recommendation on the design of your security screen door, depending on the level of privacy that you’re looking for.

3. Natural light and ventilation

Security doors allow you to open up your home and let natural light in, creating a more spacious feel to your surroundings without the fear of intruders.

The wire mesh design of Mackson security doors also allows for improved ventilation. Did you know the flow of fresh air into a room is essential for preventing mould and removing stale air from the environment? By installing a security screen door for your home, you can enjoy the fresh air and natural light without sacrificing your safety. The perfect balance between maintaining safety and ‘curb appeal.’ 

4. Adds value to your Perth property

Installing a modern, high quality security door is not only a good safety investment, but a smart future investment. You can get your security door custom made to complement the home’s existing design and colour scheme, which adds a new level of kerb appeal. If you’re looking to sell your property in the near future, this added investment can make the front of your home look attractive to potential buyers.

Here at Mackson, we install a wide range of security doors, so you can choose a style that best suits your home. 

5. Save on electricity costs

Being able to open your door to let the cool fresh air in, also means you can turn off the air conditioning and save on your energy bill. And your also doing your bit to lower your environmental footprint.

6. Keep the insects away

Unwanted creepy crawlies can be a pain to deal with in the home, especially during the warmer months. Mosquitoes are especially common during summer, and you don’t want them in your house. With a security door, you can let the fresh air in while keeping the bugs and pests out.
