The crime rate is always changing, especially in highly populated areas. In Leeds alone, the crime rate has risen exponentially year on year. With close to an additional 10 thousand crimes committed per year.
Here at Select Products, we don’t want you to be part of a bad statistic. Which is why this October, we recommend thinking about the one thing that stands between you and intruders. Your front door. It’s among one of the biggest vulnerabilities in home security. So big, in fact, that the number 1 tip that The National Home Security Month initiative has for homeowners is to upgrade your door security. Nearly 70% of all burglaries involve forced entry through the front or back door. This makes it all the more important, now more than ever, to upgrade your front door security, especially since October – March is when burglaries peak at an annual high with the long winter nights (it’s no coincidence that National Home Security Month starts in October!)
Most people who don’t have a thief’s mindset wouldn’t understand the many vulnerabilities a door has. If a door isn’t fitted in its frame correctly, then it can get pried open. If a door’s lock isn’t pick-resistant, then a bump key can have it opened in less than a few seconds. Or, if the door itself is hollow or made out of a weak material, a bit of momentum could cause critical damage. Multiple vulnerabilities require multiple lines of defence which is why this National Home Security Month, we implore you to look into our Composite Doors as a home security solution. Our doors are sourced from Rockdoor and come with a barrage of anti-theft capabilities.
Compared to the average composite door, your Rockdoor is built to be 60% stronger. This is thanks to our unique core design for each unit. After a battery of cut-through tests, we’ve found that thanks to our 50 mm sash and extreme density Rockdoor core layered with 3 mm PVC-U skins, your Rockdoor cannot be cut through without at least making enough noise to alert the whole neighbourhood.
There are no other companies in the UK that provide composite doors with S-Glazing. The reason behind this being such a big deal is because of the security it provides.
Typically speaking, your average burglar would look to exploit doors fitted with glass by prying the cassettes from your average composite door. However, with our S-Glazing Technology, your Rockdoor won’t even allow them to try. Conventionally, cassettes are made from different materials to composite doors, creating wear and tear, water ingress, and structural vulnerability. On the other hand, our glass units are sealed between two Rockdoor skins that form part of the door itself.
In other words, the glass unit isn’t fitted into the door. It’s part of it.
Don’t just take our word for it. With Police Initiatives such as Secured By Design and Sold Secure’s stamp of approval, as well as a PAS 24 accreditation, it’s not hard to see why Rockdoors has developed a reputation in crime prevention.
