Typical doors in the market today

The most common types of doors in our market today are doors made from solid wood, metal-edge wrapped doors, metal skinned wood-edged doors, and panel doors. Each door type offers a different level of quality and security.

Another factor that affects the security of a door is the lock or locks used, as well as the way the door frame is designed. To this day there are still many poorly designed doors and locks out there that one could break into simply by inserting a credit card in-between the door and door frame.

A home’s front door is usually the most secured door. In many cases, deadlocks will be installed on a home’s front door, but not on the rear or side doors. Thief’s and buglers take advantage of this fact by breaking into rear and side doors instead of the front entrance door.

    The best time to think about security is when a building is constructed. Choosing higher quality building materials can make the difference between a door that’s easy to break into and a door that cannot be broken into.

    In buildings that are already constructed, there are plenty of options to increase the security. The first option is to replace the doors with doors made from higher quality materials. The different types of doors available include:

    • Fiberglass doors – fiberglass doors are a popular choice as they can resist wear from exposure to elements better than steel. However, they can crack from a hard impact, making them less secure than steel or wood doors.
    • Wood doors – Wood doors offer better security than most fiberglass doors, and they also provide a higher-end look. Some wood doors can even be more secure than steel doors.
    • Steel doors – Because of the security steel doors offer, they have become very popular and account for half of the doors in the market today. They require little maintenance unless dented or exposed to harsh elements. However, the least expensive steel doors on the market are usually made of steel panels only, which do not provide a good level of security. If choosing a steel door, make sure it has interior reinforcements and a lock block.

    The most secure doors usually use a combination of materials. For example, we offer wood doors with a steel core interior, which combines the quality and endurance of wood with the strength of steel.


    Of course, choosing a high-quality door is not enough to keep intruders out. Even the highest quality reinforced steel door can easily be kicked in if the lock installed is of poor quality. The right type of locks installed plays an equally important part as the quality of the door.

    Most standard door handles will come with a lock pre-installed. Alone door handle locks are usually not enough to prevent break-ins, although not all door handle locks are made the same.

    A deadbolt should be an essential component of a well-secured door. Although just like door handle locks, not all deadbolt locks are made the same either. In most cases, you do not need to spend $200 for a deadbolt lock, but you should not purchase the least expensive one either.

    If you’re unsure about which doors or locks to purchase give the experts at 469 locksmith a call. We offer free estimates and consultations and our experienced specialists will recommend the best options for your needs.

  • Door Frames

    The third and equally important component of a door’s security is the door frame or door jamb. Many door frames are built with a thin strike plate making it easy to kick the door. Instead, you should opt for a deeper box strike, which is the steel pocket that houses the shaft of the deadbolt.

    You should also use deep screws that burrow deep into the wall studs, instead of shallow screws that only screw into the door jamb itself. To add even more protection, you should also reinforce your door jamb with steel plates.
