Imagine a house with bomb proof walls, bullet proof windows, unbreakable locks and everything solid in order to secure the overall lives and property inside the house. But think for a moment the entrance door is weak, normal or weak. Weak as in, not properly constructed or maintained or made properly hence imagine what is the use of that solid highly secured walls, windows and roofs? Once the basic entrance is not strong there is no point of other things to be extra secure.
There is a very famous saying of Mr. Stephen Covey ‘put first thing first’ door is the first thing which must be secured first and rest is something comes later on. There are so many houses which can be seen with some lavish entrance doors, but those lavish doors are stylish, elegant and providing décor (means everything is there except for the security). Secure doors; this term is a culmination of lot of things includes, the foundation on which the door is fixed (walls), the make of the door; it is pertinent to mention here that people pay less attention on the make of the door, which generally (but most importantly) includes the weight of the door, material used to make that door and the overall design. It must not be the case that, one is compromising on security doors in Berwick and keeping style on the door. Elegance, style and décor looks amazing but the purpose of the door is to secure not to adore. Firstly, keep the material in mind doors must be of stainless steel, if not then it must be of iron the weight of the door must be kept in mind without any hitch. Secondly, make sure the foundation (on which one is planning to fix the door) must be strong enough to hold the excess weight of the door; otherwise that iron heavy door of yours will not survive accurately. Thirdly the design of the door must not be so critical or unique which may make it unique but weak. There are certain designs which can provide the décor, while still stay strong and secure.
Last but not the least, we usually consider this stage as the first one (technically it’s the last one) now select the locks for the door from the wide range of variety. Now things are so technologically advance that options are total locking solutions are available, even face and retina locks are also available, steel coded padlocks are available; again here the purpose is to secure to try to be as critical and suspicious as possible, the entrance door lock must not be that simple (which can be picked easily or broken easily). After all the purpose of the door is to let you enter and provide security, let the door do for what it’s made.
