As you can guess from our name, we at Risk Management Development Group are committed to helping homeowners like you assess and improve their security. When it comes to home security, we find that many people assume that high-tech solutions are the most effective, while overlooking the real benefits of physical security features such as their locks and doors. One of the services that our team provides is home physical security audits, which identify weak points in your home’s security, and one of the most common such weaknesses is glass-paneled doors. In this article, we’ll go over more about why glass-paneled doors are a bad choice for home security.
- Risk of Forced Entry- One reason why glass-paneled doors are a poor option for home security is because glass is easy to break. Even if you take care to lock your door, all an intruder has to do is break the glass in order to reach in and open it anyway. If you have a glass door anywhere on the exterior of your home, we at RMDG encourage you to consider replacing it with another option, and we are happy to offer our professional recommendations.
- Privacy Concerns- In addition to the higher vulnerability to forced entry, glass-paneled doors also carry some privacy concerns. They make it possible for others to see into your home, allowing potential intruders to learn your habits and routine. If you want to make sure that your family’s privacy is protected, we at RMDG encourage you to give us a call to discuss your options.
