Sliding Security Screen doors give a very attractive look to your house or your office but they are very insecure as well. They do not keep out burglars and are posed to security threat. This weakness is the main drawback of theses doors and the reason why they have become unpopular today. But the weakness can easily be prevented and now these types of doors come with a lot more security.
Ways of securing a sliding screen door:
Many sliding security screen doors come with locks but those locks are worn off and get damaged very easily because the material they are made from is not appropriate. When you purchase a sliding door, see to it that if the lock is not up to the standard, you replace it. The new lock you purchase should be of solid steel so it becomes very difficult for the intruder to break in.
The most practiced way by intruders to break in is to lift the whole sliding security screen door. The best way to avoid this is to keep your door rollers intact. The door rollers should be in working condition so it is difficult to lift the door from its track. You can also install an anti-lifting device. This device can be made by you also putting screws at the top of the door.
Sliding security screen doors are made up of glass so one way to prevent burglary is to change the glass. This option is expensive. You can replace the glass with a laminated glass so that the burglar cannot see through the glass and would prevent him from breaking into the house.
Sliding bars can also be used for sliding security screen doors. These bars prevent the door from opening from outside. People open the sliding screen doors to get some fresh air and natural light and this is the best time for a burglar to break in. in order to avoid this you can also use a blocker which will help you to open the door only to a certain height. This height is usually very low.
