The ACT still has some of the highest figures in the country for break-ins. There are some measures home owners can take to protect themselves and their property from break-ins, however you must be careful. With doors it is important to consider the following, if you are getting a deadlock installed don't deadlock it when you are in the home. In an emergency it can slow down the time to get out of the home. The deadlock is designed to prevent the door being opened from the inside when intruders are trying to remove any contents from the home.


Another good way to protect front and back doors is to have a high quality security door fitted by a professional builder.

Windows are the other entry point that intruders use to enter homes. A common way to protect windows is to install security grills or shutters. When fitting these types of fixtures over windows it is important to have them fitted with quick release mechanisms to allow them to be opened from the inside in the event of an emergency.

Plantation shutters are a stunning design feature that suit both traditional and contemporary aesthetic styles. Plantation shutters constructed of high quality aluminium are ideal for applications like screening patios, decks, carports, windows and doors. They are durable, low maintenance and can assist towards meeting residential privacy regulations. With space at a prem­­ium in any home, being able to extend the living area into the outdoors, whilst maintaining a controlled and comfortable environment, is vital. The right shutter system can enable you to increase your usable floor space by bringing shade, privacy and security to your home's exterior, without restricting airflow and ventilation.


AUSTRALIAN STANDARDS FOR THE AUSTRALIAN CLIMATE 

When selecting building products, we should consider products suited to our often harsh Australian climate. Products that can withstand the elements and require little maintenance, while offering a generous warranty, will pay dividends in the long run. There are many low price point shutter options on the market that have been manufactured overseas and cannot compete with the quality of an Australian made product.

Doing a security renovation on your home

Doing a security renovation on your home | Security Doors and Shutters | Scoop.it

When you’re renovating or improving your home, it’s important to include practical improvements as well as aesthetic. Security strategies are definitely a part of that. Protecting yourself, your family and your possessions is a key role of the property that you live in, and there are some basic and advanced tactics that you can employ.


Make sure that garages and sheds are locked when not in use and keep garage door remotes in a secure location.

If you have a pet door, buy an automatic one that is triggered by a transmitter on the pet’s collar.


Make sure any air-conditioning units are well secured and can’t be used as access points into your home’s interior.

Install sturdy entrance doors, that is, solid-core doors with deadlocks and a peephole or security screen. Keep keys close by the entrance-way, but not in plain sight.


Consider using grilles or shutters for accessible windows, and insert dowel or PVC pipe into the window tracks to prevent them being opened from outside. Window breakage can be alerted by installing glass-break detectors.
