Front door security

Your front door is very important when it comes to security. There are a huge number of different types of doors and locks and not all of them are as good as each other. Firstly, if you have the old type of door that is wooden and has a glass section then you should replace this. UPVC doors are often the best choice for security but are also pleasant looking. You can opt for a UPVC door with a small window in it, but make sure that the glass is reinforced.

When it comes to choosing your locks, you may wish to upgrade the standard locks to include door jammers. A door jammer is a security gadget that people use to prevent their doors from being kicked in. The average quality door jammer is made of steel and weighs less than ten pounds, yet it can withstand the force of a big four by four. You can also put up jammers for the windows as they are another easy way for people to gain unwanted access to your home.  These are usually screwed in to the UPVC surround, so if the property is rented, be sure to check with the landlord as to if it is ok to install them.
