The Benefits of Security Screen Doors

Security Screens by Rockingham Home Security

Almost every Australian homeowner has them. So, if you’re one of those few people who doesn’t yet have a security screen door installed, then what in the world are you waiting for? 

Security screen doors are a simple yet highly effective investment that promises to reap real results and prove as a worthwhile addition to your home. If you’re just getting started with your home security system, but aren’t sure where to start, then this is the perfect product for you to consider. Below, we’ve outlined some of the prime reasons why you should invest in a security door system for your home

Layer of Protection

First and foremost, security doors act as an additional barrier. Your front door is the most common method of entry into your home for yourself, family members and guests. However, the same is also true for burglars. For this reason, it’s important to invest in a sturdy, durable and highly resistant product that you can install over your doors in order to provide long-lasting protection. With security screen doors installed, you won’t have to worry about burglars being able to tamper with your front door and gain easy access into your home. Security screen doors are manufactured to strict Australian standards, which require the door to pass a number of forced entry simulation tests. These tests simulate conditions such as knife attacks, lever attacks and forceful impacts such as kicking in. Consequently, these doors promise to safeguard your home once installed. 

Visual Deterrent 

Another great thing about security screen doors is that they act as a visual deterrent. When passers-by on the street notice that your home it outfitted with high-quality security doors, it shows them that you really do care about your home’s security levels. Security doors are tough to get past. Even if you’re equipped with the right tools and a strong sense of determination, you’re going to have to put in a whole lot of effort and make a great deal of noise before you’re able to successfully infiltrate the targeted home. Of course, when you’re making such a commotion, neighbours in the area are probably going to hear. Most burglars want to conduct their operation as quickly and quietly as possible, so that they can avoid drawing attention to themselves. When most burglars consider the headache associated with breaking through security doors, they’re probably going to think about targeting another property instead. 

Energy Savings

When summer comes along, all we want to do some days is blast the air-conditioning 24/7. Unfortunately, this can rack up a pretty significant energy bill at the end of the month. Not to mention, it’s not that great for the environment. The solution to this would be to make use of Mother Nature’s natural ‘air-conditioning’. With security screen doors installed, you can open up all the doors of your home to allow in the fresh, cool breeze. All the while, you won’t have to worry about compromising on security. 


As we come into December, we’re reminded of the pesky swarms of bugs and insects that tend to show up alongside the heat. After all, pests such as flies and mosquitoes are annoying enough to deal with outside, let alone in your own home. The good news is that security screens doors can also help to implement pest-control for your household. With these products installed, you can leave all the doors in your home open without having to compromise on security or pest-control. As a result, you will be able to keep your home environment a calm and restful place. Aside from this, you will also be able to preserve the health of your family members. Keep in mind that flies and mosquitoes have the potential to cause illnesses or spread dangerous diseases amongst humans. For instance, flies can land on left-out food and contaminate it, whereas mosquitoes can spread viruses such as malaria and Ross River virus through their bites. 


Not all home security products look drab, dull and serious. When you opt for tailor made security doors, you will be able to customise various aspects of your door, including the colour, style and finish. Of course, there are a wide range of options available for you to play around with. After all, every homeowner has different tastes. Plus, every single home is unique. With a custom-made solution, you won’t have to worry about your new security doors looking odd or out-of-place. Conversely, you can look forward to a security product that enhance your property’s aesthetic appeal just as much as it enhances its security level.

As you can see, security screen doors come with a multitude of benefits for homeowners. That, and they’re also incredibly affordable. Consequently, every single homeowner has the chance to experience the difference that security screen doors make to their property. To get started on your very own custom-made security doors, be sure to contact Rockingham Home Security today!
