3 things you haven’t thought about
We usually think about security screens usually because we’re thinking about how to have our doors and windows open without letting anyone into the house. So here are three things you might not have thought about. And they’re all to do with who and what is already inside your house.
- Flimsy screen doors can sometimes be popped open by a child running a toy into them. (Even your toddler can get up a deal of speed and muster more force than a cheap or badly installed screen door can withstand.)
- A good quality screen door is great for keeping pets inside. (They can scratch their way through inferior screens.)
- Elderly people fall and they have been known to fall through screen doors onto the steps below. (Hopefully that’s not a worry in your situation but you should be aware of the problem if it is.)
- Security is one of the most important factors in deciding to buy a house. When people viewing your house walk through a quality door, they feel safer.
Getting through a security screen in a fire
You need to be able to get out of your house in the event of a fire. If you can’t get to a door, that means going through a window.
The Safe-S-Cape security screen from Crimsafe has an easy-to-use lever hinge. Regardless of what type of window you have, there’s a Safe-S-Cape option that will keep intruders out but give you a fire escape option.
