Your home is your safe haven, the place where you can spend time with family and friends, unwind after a long day and keep you safe when you put your head down on the pillow at night.
As Brits spend an average of nine hours a day in the comfort of our own homes, it’s no surprise we want to keep our properties protected from criminals*. Did you know your front door is the most likely entrance point for an unwanted visitor to gain access to your property?
According to figures from the Office of National Statistics, 76% of household burglaries in England and Wales occurred when the culprit accessed the home through a door**. These statistics show how important it is that your door security is up to scratch to provide the best protection against opportunistic criminals.
How can you make sure your door is secure and your home is protected? The team from Eurocell Home has provided their expert advice on how to make sure your entrance area provides the highest level of security for your humble abode.
Often when you’re updating your front door, the colour, style and price are the main priorities when deciding which to choose. And it is important you’re happy with the final look of your door, but it’s also important to consider the security of your door when going through the selection process.
Both composite and UPVC doors are high performing when it comes to security. Composite doors can offer a slightly heightened level of protection, as the combination of materials used makes the door stronger, for a sturdy, durable, high-quality finish.
Have a handle on your home security
A sturdy durable door can be extremely efficient when it comes to stopping your home from being targeted. What you may not have considered is the importance of the door handle and locking system when it comes to protecting your home against burglary attacks.
There are various attack methods used to break a lock and gain access to a home. It is essential homeowners look for locking cylinders which meet the recommended 3-Star security rating as imposed by the British Standards Institution (BSI).
3-Star cylinders provide the maximum level of security for locking systems and can protect against a range of known cylinder attacks including anti-pick, anti-bump, anti-drill and anti-snap.
At Eurocell Home, our range of doors feature cylinders which match the highest security standard. The Dales composite door collection also has the approval of the police ‘Secured by Design’ scheme, as well as the PAS24 accreditation, providing peace of mind and reassurance to Eurocell Home customers.
Glass panels in your front door or surrounding your front door can add interest and personal style to your front door, letting natural light flood your entrance area.
They can also be effective in keeping opportunistic thieves away from the property. With designs which feature obscure glass, intruders can’t see through the glazing and into the home.
Obscure glass can help make homeowners feel safe and secure knowing any potential thieves scoping out the property are likely to move to an easier target.
With a 3-star, BSI-approved cylinder and design-conscious privacy windows, your front door will not only be a welcomed sight to any visitors, but it will turn away any unwanted ones too.
