Deter Burglaries and Home Invasion Crimes with Secure Exterior Doors

Posted on 2 September 2017 | 6:42 am by kikgard

If you don't want burglars entering your home, you've got to make your house the "toughest target" on your block. Unfortunately, many people make it easy for the thief to choose their home as their next target. How? By leaving doors and windows unlocked and even open. Leaving garage doors open. By letting shrubs and bushes grow that covers their windows making it easy for window peepers and burglars to hide and by failing to install motion sensor exterior lighting.

While there are no guarantees, police say the number one step to prevent residential burglaries is to install and use crime prevention doorjamb. It's just as important to keep your doors locked when you are home as when you are away from home.
You can't prevent every break-in. Fact is while we spend so much on aesthetics, we spare very little thought on making our homes the safe haven that they are meant to be. An opportunistic intruder can leave us feeling deeply violated and helpless especially, when people already have a heightened sense of insecurity during an economic downturn.

There are two ways to enter the home; through the windows and doors (front entry, back doors and garage doors). Fortunately, with the right features on your exterior doors, these entry points could also be made the most secure. If gaining access requires too much effort, time or tools, most burglars will to look for an easier target in the neighborhood.

             To deter would-be burglars, make sure your exterior doors have the kikgard metal doorjambs.

             Use a solid core, metal or fiberglass door for all entrances 

             Hollow doors are too easy to kick in. Get solid wood or steel frames, and make sure the door fits properly. Gaps make it easier to remove the door from its frame.

Choose secure glass panels 

Burglars can smash decorative door windows and art glass panels to gain access to your home. If you have sidelites and art glass panels on your doors, make sure they are made with triple-pane, impact resistant and tempered glass. They will still look beautiful, and they are much more secure.
