The doors are, however, the main point to be strengthened to have a safe home. Contrary to what one might think, thieves do not usually enter through the window. In fact, the front door is the most used means of access. Over 36 percent of burglaries occur through (especially in homes where the percentage rises to almost 47 percent), and an 11’4 percent do so for some secondary door. The window openings if more frequented in the cottages, where 39 percent of robberies committed by them.
Security doors, armored or armored, are in fact the mechanisms most demanded by US households: over 55 percent of US has a special door (either shielded or armored) in their homes and more than 80 have at least several locks at the entrance.
The confusion between armored and armored doors usually a very common mistake among citizens who are interested in strengthening the main entrance. However, the differences are more than remarkable, both in prices and the ability to provide a security and others.
The blast doors are somewhat more vulnerable than armored, but give the home many guarantees of protection, sufficient for the needs of some houses, and cheaply.
Not only provide a greater thickness than common doors, but, are reinforced with a steel sheet in each of their faces, more than two inches thick and special locks powerful steel bars blocking the door by four sides.
The armored door, meanwhile, is about 25 percent more expensive than armor. The average price is not usually drop below $1,000, but guarantees full protection of the entrance of the home. They are prepared to make unnecessary the use of levers and in fact, they are often used in museums and public places that need special security. The main difference with the blast is that the locking mechanisms are incorporated in the body of the door itself, and not just inside the leaf, but also the context and even the “sub frame” (the hinge) are lined with plate’s steel.
