To conclude if you do have an older type up and over garage door or even old side hinged door the chances are the effort required to break in will be minimal. The oldest types of steel up and over doors have terrible locking facilities for a start but the panel design also means it is very easy to peel them open like a can of beans and even quite quietly too. Although you can add some security devices as an after market purchase many of them are simply like putting a padlock on a paper bag. The basic product itself having no strength will not be enhanced by locking it in one point only.
The Garage Door Centre also offers a wide range of steel security pedestrian doors to go along with the garage door, either for the actual garage itself or to secure access between the garage and you home. We also offer a full and comprehensive range of security grilles and shutters alongside out sister company Samson Doors. All these products are on display at our 2 showroom facility in Wellingborough, Northamptonshire.
