Guelph Door Security Help
The following are the types of doors typically used in residential applications: solid wood door, panel doors (hollow and solid core), metal skinned wood-edged doors and metal edge-wrapped doors. Typically, door frames are solid wood. Residential doors also frequently contain wood.
Security tests found that many residential doors fail when force is applied to them.
Solid wood doors withstood more force than the very common metal skinned wood-edged doors used in newer construction. Steel edged doors outperform wood-edged doors by a ratio of 7 to 1.
When you consider the practically two-thirds of all illegal entries were made through doors, you want to make sure that your doors are strong and solid. Most door manufactures offer a number of different types of doors with varying levels of strength.
Door frames often split with little force applied and lower quality deadbolts simply failed when force was applied to the door.
Door found to have relatively low effectiveness included: sliding glass door braces, such as wooden dowels, as opposed to sliding door channel or pin locks; deadbolts installed in the front door only; and outdoor lights on dusk-to-dawn timers.
Burglary tactics are many, but the preferred entry for thieves are the front doors. From victim interviews, it results that in 87% of the break-ins occurred when intruders defeated locked doors with tools such as screwdrivers or crowbars, the burglars targeted the one door that had no deadbolt lock. Not one burglar attempted to break a double-pane window during the course of successful or attempted burglary.
Having this knowledge helps to know that a dead-bolt installed on your exterior doors and also having double pane windows will deter burglars from entering your premises. Call Locksmith Guelph for more information, advise or help. We are here 24/7 for you!
