As the largest entrance to your home, it can be common for the garage door to be a target for intruders. An old garage doors, or one with badly fitted latches or frames, is easily forced open, leaving your garage and home potentially vulnerable to burglars. To prevent this from happening, it is essential that you select a secure garage door. Not only will a secure looking door deter thieves, but it also makes it harder for them to break in should they ever attempt to.
Here at PCS Garage Doors, our years of experience in the industry has allowed us to gather which doors are best at providing a secure and safe entrance to your garage. We’ve shared this with you below.
Up and over garage doors
Modern updates of the traditional up and over door have made significant improvements on the level of security provided. Up and over doors fitted with a multi point locking system will create high levels of noise and effort required in order to force entry, which will act as an effective deterrent to most would-be intruders.
Sectional garage doors
Sectional garage doors fold back into the ceiling of the garage in sections, meaning that this type of door has an extremely sturdy design, with individual panels supported by a strong frame system and electric opener. The internal locking feature of this design eliminates any weak points by removing any single point of entry – instead, the door composes a single unit that is very hard to forcibly open.
Side hinged garage doors
Side hinged doors are ideal for those who use their garage as a workshop or additional living space, rather than purely to store a car. Modern side hinged doors can prove extremely secure when properly fitted with the right locking devices. If you opt for this door, be sure to have multi-locking systems in place, rather than one fixed point that the door unlocks and opens from.
Roller garage doors
The sleek and modern design of roller shutter door has made them an increasingly popular choice for a domestic garage door, providing a strong, insulated door that takes up minimum space in the garage. Thanks to their design, roller doors are extremely resistant to attack, with overlapping channels that mean the door is effectively impenetrable from the outside – no handle means there are no obvious weak points for intruders to target, either.
