National Home Security Month is an initiative designed to raise awareness around the importance of home security. And with it just around the corner (October), it’s time to think about whether the security of your home is as good as it could be.
When doing so, you might think about your front door, as it is one of the most common entry points would-be intruders use to force their way into the home. So, if the security of your front door is not up to scratch, you should consider replacing it with an Accoya timber front door, and here’s why:
Outstanding solidity that withstands impact damage
Accoya is a type of softwood with exceptional strength and hardness. Plus, it has been modified via a process called acetylation, which tremendously improves its dimensional stability. This solidity means that it withstands impact damage superbly, providing your home with an effective barrier against attempts to break down the door.
However, we can even manufacture Accoya front doors thicker than our standard 57mm variety, making your front door even more sturdy in the process.
Years of unfaltering protection
The process of acetylation also makes Accoya indigestible to insects and virtually immune to rot. Designed to retain their quality, Accoya front doors come with a 50-year warranty, although they can last a lifetime, even without repainting or varnishing. Therefore, they’ll continue to protect your home year after year.
High-security, multipoint locks as standard
Whenever we fit your home with an Accoya front door, we ensure to equip it with the latest multipoint locking systems. When the door is closed, multipoint locks secure the door to the frame at various points. This leaves no weak points for a burglar to then apply pressure to and force the door open.
