Posted on 4th November 2021 at 14:45
Did you know that the latest figures show that a burglary occurs every 40 seconds in the UK? Whilst taking out contents insurance will make sure that you’re covered in the event of a break-in, the best course of action is to deter thieves from targeting your home in the first place.
Composite doors are one of the top ways to prevent your home from falling victim to a burglary. They achieve this in multiple ways, so read on to discover how our composite doors help to keep homes in Hull, Beverley and East Yorkshire safe against criminal activity.
Composite doors are very strong
No matter what style of composite door you choose for your home, you’re investing in an effective barrier that keeps thieves at bay. This is because they’re extremely strong and sturdy, making them the go-to option for people who want to add an extra layer of security to their property.
Composite doors are far stronger than timber and even uPVC doors because they’re manufactured from a dense foam core that’s coated in robust GRP (glass reinforced plastic). This makes them thicker and far more dependable than traditional types of doors.
Composite doors are weather-resistant
The materials mentioned above also help composite doors to resist the effects of rainfall, fluctuations in temperature, salty air, chemicals and UV light, all of which can cause timber doors to weaken over time.
Thanks to this clever construction, your new composite doors will actively combat the invisible factors that could otherwise pose a problem.
Composite doors are more secure
As well as being super tough, composite doors also come with sophisticated locking mechanisms that provide exceptional home security. Multi-lock points mean that the door is secured in numerous places across the door, which stops criminals from being able to break in. Anti-pick and anti-drill locks really do bring ultimate peace of mind, as they remove any worries of burglars picking the lock in any way.
Composite doors protect you 365 days a year
Did you know that burglaries rise by more than 25% when the clocks go back? Thieves see longer nights as the perfect opportunity to attempt a burglary, as they can go about their criminal activity under cover of darkness. The changing weather can also cause other types of doors to warp, expand and contract, which weakens their structure and makes them easier to break into.
Don’t risk an opportunistic criminal trying to rob your home – a composite door will keep you and your family safe and secure both now and long into the future.
Other ways to increase home security
As well as having new composite doors and double glazed windows installed, here are a few additional tips for increasing the security of your home:
Install a modern security system, such as an alarm, door sensors and cameras that can be monitored through a phone app.
Add a video doorbell that allows you to see who’s at the door before you answer it.
Outdoor lighting improves visibility for the homeowner whilst deterring criminals from approaching the property.
Make sure that all of your external buildings are locked when not in use, such as your garage, shed, summerhouse, garden office etc.
Keep bikes inside, as even a securely locked bicycle on display can attract criminals.
If you want to store a spare key outside, don’t hide it under a plant pot. Wall-mounted key safes securely protect your spare keys through a reinforced structure and a combination code.
Many homeowners plant thick and thorny bushes near their windows – something as simple as this can make would-be burglars think twice about trying to break into your home.
