The windows and doors in your home play a critical part in keeping your home safe and secure. Old windows or poorly maintained patio doors in particular can make your home more vulnerable to a break in.
Burglars are often opportunists who will target homes they can get in and out of as quickly as possible. On average a burglar takes less than a minute to break in to a home and so broken locks, single glazing or warped frames are a weak spot in any home security.
How Secure Are Bifold Doors?
The back of the home is most vulnerable to a break-in and so what type of exterior patio door is installed is significant. You might be quick to assume that sliding patio systems and bifold door installations are not secure due to the amazing glass views they provide. But that’s simply not the case. The windows and door industry has spent years developing technology for highly secure systems suitable for both residential and commercial buildings. As a result, a modern bifold door installation not only looks great but is also highly effective at keeping the rear of the home secure.
With double and triple glazing, multi-point locking systems, durable aluminium frames, lockable handles and intruder-resistant infills, our bifold doors are highly secure.
