What doors provide the best security?
Last Updated on
With literally thousands of different security doors available on the market today, choosing the door that will provide the best security for your home can be quite a difficult task.
In the first instance, we would always advise you to plan and scope out exactly what you require before you even begin to search for a security door. We recommend that you contact a company that offers free site surveys, such as Secure House! A site survey is the best way to gain information and insight with one of our qualified industry consultants visiting your home to assess and discuss exactly what’s required because no two buildings are ever the same.
During the survey, our consultant will provide you with specific technical, professional recommendations, advise on functionality and safety considerations, help you to understand security levels and take precise measurements to ensure you get the best quote and solution for your property.
As previously, there are so many different products out there and lots of them are really not fit for purpose. When it comes to selecting the best security doors, there are two key elements to consider: you must look at both the security class and thermal value of the product. These two specific elements will ensure you get the best security door for your money and your property.
Security class ratings start with Security Class RC1 – basic protection against burglary – and go right through to Security Class RC6 – typically used in military bunkers. Our best-selling security door is our Skydas Standard 3, a product that has been rigorously and independently tested in a scientific laboratory. Achieving Security Class RC3, this burglar resistant door will protect from a skilled burglar using heavy-duty burglary tools and was specifically created applying the knowledge of all the possible ways and methods of burglary. And, by the way, Skydas doors are the most popular security doors in the UK!
The thermal value of a security door can contribute significantly to energy savings within your home. Our Skydas Standard 3 uses 50mm rock wool thermal insultation and the L-shaped bent frame ensures tightness to effectively seal the door. Its thermal transmittance is 1.3 W/(m2–K) – the lower the transmittance, the more heat is held in – making it the ideal energy (and cost!) saving security door.
So, there you have it. The Skydas Standard 3 is certainly a door that can provide the best security.
