What is a security doors?

A security door is an additional door providing a supplemental level of security, and is generally installed outside of your main front door. These doors are commonly customized or constructed with a decorative, strengthened iron or steel frame and tempered or security glass (so you can see who is outside your house but they can’t break in).

Security doors have a variety of unique features to resist break-ins that traditional doors don’t have, including stronger mounting, more secure locks, and advanced installation methods.

Why install a security door?

Custom made security doors - Big Easy Iron Works

Did you know that one out of three burglaries begins with your front door installation? That’s right – while many people assume that windows are the preferred point-of-entry for a burglar, the front door is actually a vulnerable point in your home.

Front doors aren’t often constructed to resist break-ins well; in fact, kicking down a front door is one of the easiest and most common ways for a burglar to enter your home.

A residential break-in occurs every 13 seconds – it’s important to protect your family and your belongings with a greater method of protection than just your front door.

Our metal doors in New Orleans are equipped with features made specifically to resist burglary, including:

  • Deeper mounting into the wall – deeper than 4 inches, preferably at least 6 inches, to prevent the door from being ripped off its hinges
  • Heavy-duty hinges rated for 800 pounds or more
  • High-quality metals for your door that won’t bend or break with excessive force
  • Five-pin locks that won’t break if a burglar attempts to wrench the door open
  • Tempered or security glass that won’t shatter if hit with a baseball bat or crowbar

Your safety is important to us. Don’t trust you and your family’s well-being to an ordinary door. Call us and ask about our wrought iron doors for homes.
