A home burglary can be an awful experience. Knowing that an intruder has been in your home is hard to get over. Luckily, burglaries are uncommon, but they do happen – so it helps to try to deter burglars from targeting your home in the first place. Something as simple as a security screen on your doors and windows can enhance your home security.
They create a physical barrier and are also a visual deterrent, as burglars often look for easy break-ins and may not even bother trying to burglarise a home with security screens. Let’s take a look at how security screens help to strengthen to home security.
A Visual Deterrent
A security screen not only physically protects your home, but it acts as a visual deterrent. It sends a message out to potential burglars looking for an easy target, that you have invested in your home security and your home is protected.
This message is powerful and can be enough of a deterrent to make a burglar move on and find another home that looks easier to get into.
A Physical Barrier
Security screens also provide a physical barrier that make it harder for an intruder to get into your home. The SecureView screen is one of the best for protecting homes from intruders and is made from stainless steel woven-mesh that’s extremely strong and almost impenetrable.
Plus, it’s installed with a state of the art WHB acrylic adhesive and a three point locking system for extra strength, so you can enjoy feeling safe and secure in your home. Starline Security is a security screen manufacturer that offers this screen. Contact us for more details.
Give You Peace of Mind
Alongside protecting your home and acting as a deterrent, a security screen will give your whole family peace of mind that your home is safe and secure. You can go out for the day or travel abroad and rest easy in the knowledge that your home is not an easy target for burglars.
Are Security Screens Really that Effective?
While screens such as flyscreens and diamond grille screens offer some protection, they’re not made to withstand huge force. Screens made from high tensile mesh are the gold standard for security and the best way to protect your home from break-ins.
Also, some security screens are fitted with vulnerable screws and rivets that can be removed. For the highest level of security, ask a security screen manufacturer for a screen without screws and rivets and that’s made from high tensile mesh.
