Are Garage Doors Secure?

Have you often wondered how secure your garage doors are? It’s an important consideration, as most home owners have expensive possessions inside, such as tools, machinery and vehicles. Plus, many garages connect directly to the home. Ensuring a garage door is safe is crucial for the security of your home.

In this article we’ll look at how you can improve the security of your garage doors in Somerset to ensure peace of mind for your home.

Up & Over Garage Doors

Up and over garage doors in Somerset are one of the most common garage doors fitted, because they’re cost-effective and easy to manufacture. However, the handle can be broken off and then the opening mechanism can be accessed by a cable.

So how can security be improved?

The most cost-effective option is to add a garage door defender, which prevents the bottom of the garage door from rising unless unlocked. Alternatively, installing an automatic garage door in Somerset will allow the door to lock by itself and cannot be accessed externally.

Side-Hinged Garage Doors

Side-hinged garage doors in Somerset provide very convenient access to your garage, and don’t require any lifting. However, you can increase security by adding multiple ground bolts that are locked over night.

Roller Garage Doors 

Roller garage doors in Somerset offer excellent protection against forced entry, due to extra reinforcement along the slats. Automatic roller garage doors combe secure design with automated locking.  If you’re looking for replacement garage doors, roller doors in Somerset are an exceptional option for security and are easy to use.
