Choosing a secure Front Door

A secure front door should have 2 factors: the door’s material and the door lock. The best front door is one that will stop unauthorised entry to your property. The door is usually the weakest point of entry to your home. So you need to know that you have the best front door for security. As well as considering the 2 factors above you’ll also want to look for British Standards (BSI) Kitemark, PAS 24 and Secured by Design accreditations.

Timber doors are solid and sturdy and one of the best choices for front door security. However, the strength of any door comes down to the quality of the frame and lock. The five-lever mortice lock is loved by insurance companies, and a solid frame will make it hard work for a burglar. The only drawback is that a timber door will need regular maintenance.
