Securing your Door

Use factory manufactured security doors for doors at your entrance. These doors come with deadlock bolts and have little or no spacing between the frame and the door. Their hinges are installed inside, which prevents the removal of hinge pins that can bring down the door. They are also paint coated to prevent them fro rotting over time.

Securing the Windows

You can secure your windows by installing hard glass panes, fitting them with good locks and also connecting them to an alarm system.
