Why You Should Upgrade Your Door

GibraltdoorHow do you imagine that most burglars and home invaders get into the home? Many people assume that burglars like to come in through the window–but most people would be wrong.

85% of these crimes happen through the front door.

Usually people believe they are safe if they lock their front doors. But even if you have a deadbolt most doors are vulnerable to simply being kicked open.

That’s why we were intrigued by the Gibraltdoor. The video below shows the door standing up to the abuse of a police battering ram.

The door isn’t the only thing that’s reinforced. A Gilbraltdoor has reinforced the frames and hinges too. It is pretty easy to install and it looks just like a normal door, which means that it won’t ruin the appearance of your home in any way.

After all, you don’t want your home to look like a fortress from the street. You just want to be safe.

Now, that doesn’t mean that you should rely on the door alone. The Gibraltdoor won’t help you if you accidentally leave your door unlocked, if a determined thief really does decide to come in through the window, or if you accidentally open the door to someone who should not be in your home.

But if you install it in conjunction with a monitored home security system you’ll have some really excellent protection on your home, especially if your security system protects both windows and doors. Remember, it’s all about putting layers of deterrents and barriers between you and a criminal.

Call Gibraltdoor for the door–but call us for your Charlotte, NC monitored home security system.
