Burglars are not high tech; thus, always look for the easiest way to break into a property. Their favourite is perhaps the doors and windows. If you can secure the most obvious entry points, you have a better chance at deterring burglars.
Security screens are made of marine-grade stainless steel mesh or aluminium mesh screens. These screens are required to meet or exceed set Australian Standards which makes them an excellent deterrent to burglars. They are designed to look like your regular fly screens, and thus they'll offer the same benefits in addition to security.
Once the screens are installed in place, you can relax knowing that your home is protected from vandals. In addition, you can select security screen designs based on your preferences to improve your home decor and offer the level of security you need. Other benefits include the following.
1. Uninterrupted views
You can choose see-through security screens that allow uninterrupted views of your kids playing in the garden or anyone approaching your property while you're inside the house. This means that you don't have to compromise light for security.
Intruders tend to scan a neighbourhood to identify a vulnerable home that's easy to break in and steal whatever they find. Once they've identified a home, they'll try to peek through the windows to identify valuables and if there is anyone at home. However, if the homeowner has installed security screens on all the windows and doors, the intruders or passersby will find it harder to see inside your home. You can see outside, but they can't see inside; thus, they'll have no idea whether you have valuables. They'll have no clue whether there is anyone at home at the time.
3. Protect you from insects
Intruders are irritating whether they are thieves or insects such as mosquitoes. However, by installing security screens, you can keep out the two. Security screens are designed to look like fly screens; thus, they will keep out insects, but allow fresh air and light into your home. In addition to deterring insects and burglars, security screens will also keep out debris, especially on a windy day.
4. Wrapping up
Yes, installing security screens to your windows and doors will help protect your home from burglars. However, keep in mind that when given time and resources, burglars can break into any home. You can combine security screens with security doors or alarm systems to frustrate the burglars' attempts.
