Why Security Doors are Important
No one can argue that it’s a good idea to get high-security doors for your home, especially in the Baltimore area. You may not consider that on top of being a necessity, they are also a good investment. Unfortunately, burglars will always be out there, and you need to be prepared. Protect yourself, your home or business, and your investments. When you purchase a security door from Master Seal, we want you to have that peace of mind, and we strive to help you do it within your budget. Our doors are built to last a lifetime, keep you safe, and keep unwanted visitors out.
Security Door Hardware Options
When it comes to the hardware on your security door, there are options. The lock, of course, is the most important safety feature, as well as the strike plate that is part of the lock system. The strike plate is the metal plate that attaches inside the doorframe. When you lock a deadbolt, the bolt secures through a hole in the strike plate. It’s essential to look for a quality strike plate as part of your lock. Quality locks will have reinforced strike plates, but inexpensive strike plates are cheaply made and can bend easily if someone tries to force the door open. The different types of locks include:
1. Vertical Locks
As the name suggests, this type of lock uses a vertical bolt that threads through a series of rings. The strike plate has steel rings that connect with a second set of steel rings on the lock itself for double the security. You will find them commonly used in hotels and apartment complexes.
2. Single Cylinder Locks and Double Cylinder Locks
A single cylinder lock opens with a key from the outside and uses a thumb-knob to gain entry. In smart home applications, you can also find a keypad feature in some single cylinder locks. This makes it very convenient for homeowners, so they are not fumbling with keys or panicking if they forget them altogether.
A double cylinder lock also opens from the outside with a key, but the same key is also used to lock and unlock the door from the inside. This is an excellent option if you have an entry door with glass windows because an intruder can’t break the glass and reach in to unlock the deadbolt without the key. Check with local building codes to make sure these are approved for use in your area.
3. Smart Locks
Smart locks use your home’s Wi-Fi network to connect your security system – including door locks – to your phone or computer. This allows you to access your home from anywhere easily with your phone or computer. Some smart locks even connect to motion-activated cameras that record all the activity at your door for added security.
