When choosing patio doors for your home there are many things to consider - how
they look, what materials they’re made from and how well they tolerate changes in
temperature. But perhaps the first and foremost consideration should always be the
level of security they can offer you and your family.
Sometimes patio doors are perceived as not being as safe as more traditional types
of doors, and this may certainly be the case with some cheaper poorly designed models.
But at PatioMaster the level of security offered by our patio doors is as important in
our design and engineering process as it is to you.
The principles of patio door security
The key to patio door security is in ensuring that the construction of the patio door
is sturdy and solid whilst maintaining good functionality and aesthetics, combined
with a reliable locking system. That’s why we install a six point locking system
in all our custom built patio doors, and further reinforce this to prevent intruders
from forcing their way in.
We make all our door frames from steel-reinforced PVC-U, designed to be highly attractive
yet also strong and robust. The glass panes are double-glazed to a thickness of
28mm, further enhancing your patio door security and acting as a deterrent to would-be
intruders. Interior sliding panels provide even greater protection.
Inbuilt ‘anti-jacking’ system
When buying patio doors it’s also important to ensure that there is a system in
place to prevent the door panels from being lifted out from the outside. All of
our doors contain an inbuilt ‘anti-jacking’ system which fix the door securely in
place and prevent home intruders from using this method to gain entrance.
In terms of patio door security we have left nothing to chance, resulting in a range
of doors as secure as they are attractive. To view our customisable selection of
