Security is a natural concern of any homeowner. Our home is where we and our families are most vulnerable. It’s our haven, filled with the valuables that we work hard for, as well as a place our family members trust to keep them safe.
While many Australians spend time and money securing their windows with burglar bars and ensuring alarm systems will alert them to the presence of an intruder on their property, few spend much time on securing their actual door. And as local radio station 3AW recently brought to our attention, a new crime trend sweeping Melbourne involves penetrating this vulnerable soft spot to our home. http://www.3aw.com.au/news/rumour-confirmed-new-kickin-crime-trend-emerges-in-home-invasions-across-melbourne-20161115-gsq6g7.html
It seems that criminals are targeting homes without security doors and kicking them in. The home is then raided and the property abandoned in a matter of minutes, before security companies have even made it to the scene.
It isn’t just a loss of personal items that these ‘kick ins’ involve, as research shows these burglaries can turn ugly, fast. Melbourne crime statistics show that aggravated burglaries have increased by 39 per cent and that an increasing number of break-ins involve personal violence.
By taking a proactive step in getting a security door for your home, you can greatly increase your peace of mind and deter criminals from attempting to enter your home in the first place. The reason that many people put off installing one is that they are under the impression that the security door will be very obvious, drawing attention to their property and leading people to believe that there is a reason for the door…something valuable lies within.
Modern security doors actually resemble standard ones and don’t look bolted on. They are made from sleek aluminum or from stainless steel that has either been woven or perforated. These doors also feature diamond design and decorative grilles and are available in every colour imaginable, so they are likely to fit right in to any style of property you can think of.
So if you’re ready to take the next step by getting a security door installed, remember that you can get one that fits so well with its surroundings you won’t be able to tell the difference.
