The search for home doors that provide security is becoming more and more common. No matter how safe your neighborhood is, even if you live in a gated community, everyone has a responsibility to be concerned about the safety and well-being of their families.
Today’s home burglars are pretty cheeky. It is estimated that at least 34% of burglars enter directly through the front door and can pass through your entire house, taking everything they can, in just 10 minutes!
When it comes to home security, having a solid and well-secured front door is the essential first step. Alarms are a great addition, but in the time it takes for the police to arrive on the scene, the burglar can rob your home and be miles away already. This is why the security of your doors should be one of your first lines of defense.
What about these steel external security doors?
No one can deny that the steel is very strong, however, no one can deny that these steel external security doors are not only unsightly, but they completely block your view of the outside.
Steel security doors also ruin the curb appeal of your facade. It’s true that they send a message to burglars, but what about the message sent to your neighborhood? No one wants to live in a house that looks like a prison!
You don’t need to use steel exterior doors to achieve high security. At Alumalco, we make super strong, yet lightweight aluminum doors in a wide variety of styles and colors that will protect you, your family and your belongings from unwanted entry!
In addition to beautifying your facade, our recommendation for the best aluminum security doors will provide a beautiful view while keeping your family safe.
Here are our top 3 choices for door security:
# 1 European style aluminum doors
With over 100 different styles to choose from, choosing the door that will best suit your needs is made easy with our wide selection of aluminum door types.
Whether you choose our solid aluminum door, or the one with glass inserts, you can’t go wrong. All our doors offer locking systems with high quality German mechanisms. You can choose from a 1, 3 or 5 point locking system.
German engineering means your security locks are of the highest quality, and have decades of engineering and testing. That is why the world’s safest and most reliable locking mechanisms are designed and manufactured in Germany.
If you are concerned that using inserts or glass panels poses a safety risk, be aware that Alumalco offers laminated glass which, as shown in this video , is virtually unbreakable by the average burglar, especially without making any noticeable noise.
For the safety of your home, the smart choice is to choose aluminum doors. Because they are made with strong and stable materials that resist forced energy much better than wood, composite, fiberglass or PVC doors. Aluminum doors will never split, crack, warp, and color will never peel. They also require a minimum of maintenance. No more painting, staining or replacing damaged parts.
Choosing an aluminum door from Alumalco means that you can have almost any color you like, even different colors for the interior and exterior, if you want. With some door materials, like PVC or composites, you cannot paint them in darker colors for fear of warping. This is not the case for aluminum doors.
All Alumalco aluminum doors also feature thermal cut technology. This means that outdoor temperatures will never get inside, and vice versa. Our doors are certified airtight and super energy efficient.
In addition, aluminum is one of the most environmentally friendly materials available. If you’re concerned about your carbon footprint, aluminum doors would be the most eco-friendly option, as this material can be used over and over again.
