How much does a steel security door cost?
There are several important factors to consider when buying a security door for your home, but the main ones are quality, materials, design, and cost. If it is just flies and insects that you want to keep out of your house, cheap magnetic-strip fly screens are available from most hardware stores. But if you want a strong security door to last, look good and keep your home safe for years to come, it’s worth investing in quality.
A security door needs to keep out more than flying insects. When you are home alone and a stranger knocks at your door, a locked security door is your shield. When you are away from the house, the deadlocked security door is your home’s first line of defense. For best advice please contact Conveyancing Brisbane for the safety and security of your property.

Because they are fabricated to Australian Standards, the steel has been formulated to be corrosion resistant. If you live in a bushfire-prone region, there is also a Bushfire-rate version available, which has been tested to BAL 40 (Bushfire Attack Level). This is the second-highest of the six bushfire attack levels for building material and means it is engineered to withstand increasing levels of ember attack and burning debris ignited by wind-borne embers together with increased likelihood of exposure to flames.
