Security Doors for Maryland Homes & Businesses

The purpose of a security door is to prevent unauthorized access to a home or business. You can find several varieties of security doors today and the most common options include:

  • Openwork steel security doors resembling wrought iron with a tempered glass back panel
  • Solid steel security doors with sturdy side fixings designed to look like a regular fiberglass or wood door
  • Security screen doors with sliding tempered glass panels that open to allow in fresh air when desired

The doors themselves are heavy-duty and often feature additional devices to increase security, including deadbolts, bars, door chains, and alarms. Hinge screws are also useful to prevent an intruder from pushing the door in, even after they remove the hinge screws. You can even install a security door with the hinges hidden from view for additional safety.

Security doors are traditionally installed at the front entrance of a home or business, but they can also provide additional security for individual areas within the building, including basements, escape routes, vaults, and panic rooms.

Benefits of Security Doors

  • Keep intruders out: Obviously, the most important benefit is the ability to avoid unauthorized access. With the proper features and installation, security doors are nearly unbreakable. Their durable construction also means they last for decades.
  • Couple with alarm technology: Homes and businesses with security systems can install sensors directly on a security door to sound the alarm if the door is tampered with. A quick response from local authorities increases the chance of catching a perpetrator in the act.
  • Stop fire from spreading: Solid steel security doors can double as fire doors. When installed on the interior, security doors slow the spread of fire so you have a chance to extinguish it before too much damage is done.
  • Withstand storms: Security screen doors, also called storm doors, earned their name for a reason. The extra layer over your regular front entry door provides protection from hail, wind, and hurricanes. This helps your front door retain its paint color and functionality for years to come.
  • Increase energy efficiency: When the weather’s bad, a closed and locked security door effectively blocks drafts. On the other hand, when the weather is nice, you can leave the regular front door open and the security screen door shut. Then, slide open the glass panel to expose the screen and allow fresh air to enter without letting bugs in or pets out. This control over your front door’s tightness and ventilation increases comfort and efficiency.

FAQs About Security Doors

What are security doors?

Security doors are strong entry doors that help prevent intruders from breaking into a home or business. They may be made from stronger materials, like steel, that is difficult to break, or they may have features like hinge screws that protect against a door from opening with the screws or bolts removed. Security doors work for businesses and homes that need added protection.

Can I have a security door if I want a screen door?

Yes, security screen doors are specialty screen doors that have sliding tempered glass. This glass is nearly impossible to break but provides the option to open the door and allow fresh air inside your home.

Do security doors detract from the look of my home?

No, solid security doors do not detract from the look of your home. They can have side fixings that look like a regular fiberglass or wood door, so they look no different than a regular entry door while adding the important security you need. Security doors can even have wrought iron looks to them if you opt for an openwork steel security door.

Do security doors lower homeowner’s insurance premiums?

Some insurance companies will offer discounts for homes that upgrade stand doors to solid security doors. The amount of the discount varies depending on the company, and not all companies offer these discounts, but you may be able to save some money on insurance premiums by upgrading your door. Make sure it has a deadbolt to increase your savings even more.

Are security doors guaranteed to stop a burglary?

No, all doors can be breached with the right tools, but most thieves are looking for a quick grab-and-run type crime. Installing a security door will deter most thieves, protecting your home and its contents.
