Make sure you bifold doors have the right security features
No matter where you plan to install bifold doors in your home, you need to be sure that they offer total security and safety. This is where the buying process is important. If you buy high quality doors that are manufactured and fitted by a reliable and approved company, then security should be provided as an integral part of the process. Here’s how to check.
Look for quality
When it comes to home security, quality rarely comes cheap. It’s unwise to pick out the cheapest lock on the market, or to cut corners when it comes to alarm systems. Bifold doors and other elements of the home are exactly the same.
There are two areas where you need quality.
First, you need to make sure the hardware is up to scratch. When the doors are constructed, check they ensure that all have the latest approved security features included as standard, including multi-point locks. The latter will be essential when it comes to getting a decent quote for your house insurance.
Secondly, make sure the installation is up to scratch. Because bi fold doors have to slide and fold, the engineering has to be carried out absolutely correctly, which is why bespoke bifolds are always a better option than a pre-made, cheap alternative.
When fitted properly, bifolds are much more secure than an old wooden back door. A burglar could potentially apply enough force to kick a wooden door through, whereas good quality glazing is extremely difficult to break. Providing your doors are mounted properly on their rails, there should be no opportunity for a burglar to force their way in.
As well as providing a very secure access to your home, the bi folds supplied by us come with a full twenty-year guarantee. This provides you with the knowledge and peace of mind that in the unlikely event that anything should go awry with your doors, a fully trained and customer friendly team will do whatever is needed to rectify the problem.
Despite being made to measure, installation of your doors can be carried out within just seven days (subject to the size of your project). The fixing team will work quickly, quietly and cleanly, treating your home environment with the respect that you would expect and making sure everything is left secure at each stage of the process.
