It goes without saying that you want a door that looks beautiful and works a treat, keeps out the colds and draughts and keeps in the warmth. But, if there’s one thing that sits above all of these things in terms of importance – it’s home security. A number one priority when it comes to safeguarding your family and your possessions.
So, as well as being inviting and welcoming visitors into your home, your front door should also be robust enough to act as an impenetrable barrier and deterrent to even the most persistent of intruders. Choose a Bowater Composite Door and you can be confident that it will come with state-of-the art security features, so you can feel safe and sound in your own home.
The main security feature of a Bowater Composite door is its extremely robust exterior that, unlike timber doors, is not weakened or compromised by extreme weather conditions or day-to-day wear and tear. We also use the highest quality hardware to ensure the same optimum level of security provided by the door itself.
As more and more intruders are becoming experts at ‘lock bumping’ modern cylinder locks, Bowater has utilised much safer and secure mortise locks on all our Composite Doors, which are linked and backed up by an array of multipoint hook-locks.
In fact, we’ve designed our Composite Door range to exceed even the highest expectations, which has resulted in us being awarded a Secured By Design accreditation. This is something every one of our team is extremely proud of at Bowater, as it part of the official UK Police flagship initiative supporting the principles of 'designing out crime'. Take a look at the official Bowater Composite Door Secured by Design listing.
What the police have to say
In order to best protect your self, your loved ones and your possessions from burglaries or intruders, the Metropolitan Police advise homeowners and tenants to “…ensure that the frame is sound and the door is suitable for external use; for instance, a wooden hollow core door would not be suitable. It should be of substantial construction, at least 44mm (13/4”) thick.” Interested in reading the rest of this advice? Visit http://content.met.police.uk/Site/doors
