Here at 6DayDoors, we manufacture and proudly supply two types of doors to homeowners. These are the Visofold 1000 and Visofold 6000 doors which offer plenty of thermal efficiency and natural light to your home. One of the main reasons bifold doors are considered is their security. But how secure are they? Read on to find out.
Your brand new bifold doors have a lot to offer on the security front. They run on a track and are armed with very strong glass panes. For any intruders to break in, they would have to lift the panes out of the bottom track. They are securely fastened, making this impossible to do.
But that’s not all, because you will also benefit from a door with multi-point locking systems as standard as well as an in line tracking system. This means your door will be robust against any break in attempts and result in a more comfortable environment. Your door will also benefit from advanced double glazing because it will protect you from anything the weather throws at you. This is very suitable against inherently windy conditions. Not only that, but the door is also airtight and watertight, so water will not be able to seep into your home.
While a bifold door is inherently secure, it needs to be easily opened. As previously mentioned, the multipoint locking systems will protect you and your family, but other locks will bolster your protection as well. This will help you and your peace of mind, making you less likely to encounter any problems. This includes a twinpoint lock placed in the centre of your bifold door and fastens it tight in one movement. It brings a sleek and modern look to the door. A dropbolt lock is very menacing, bringing even more security to the door. They are very customisable because they can either be long or short, so you are spoilt for choice. If you are an installer, the locks are very easy to fit.
The bifold doors are even fitted with padlocks, which can be tightened with keys and padlocks. This makes the door very easy to tighten and are perfect if the bifold doors are used for conservatories. That way, intruders will be deterred quickly because only you have access to the keys.
What’s more, you can even install security screens in your doors because they enable you to keep the doors open while still allowing an extra layer of protection. The screen itself is a mesh door installed either on the front or the back of your doors. They are very popular in warm climates, and they will prevent the glare from the sun while increasing ventilation, so you can breathe easier.
You can feel very confident that your doors are secure for any client because the hardware we choose is incredibly strong and durable. This results in a very firm grip which will be impossible for burglars to break into. Your external door can be locked easily as well. Lift the handle, and then all the points in the multipoint locking system will connect into place straight away. Additionally, toughened glass is fitted into the door as standard, meaning you’ll benefit from maximum security. Toughened glass is up to five times stronger than standard glass, so your space is much more secure.
In addition, you can also benefit from a bifold door alarm system. This is a very subtle security method connected to your handheld device, computer, or tablet. By syncing it up to your device, you can always keep a beady eye on your home, even when you’re not near it. This is especially useful if you are out, and an intruder threatens to break in because the alarm can be sounded straight away.
Aluminium is a very precious and robust metal, so you can be confident that with its advanced double glazing, it can resist plenty of hard knocks as well. Not only that, but you can have triple glazing installed as well. Aluminium is also durable and light, so it can also maximise space. You can fold them out like a concertina and pull them back in, meaning that they are incredibly easy to open and close.
