How Secure Are Wrought Iron Doors?

There is no debating it – wrought iron doors are beautiful.  But, in addition to their incredible beauty they also provide a significant benefit to homeowners by enhancing security.  When you invest in a door for your home you want it to look good and compliment your home’s architectural style.  Many think of wrought iron doors as only ornate and traditional and, while there are many ornate and traditional styles, there are also a wide range of transitional and modern styles to accommodate any home’s architecture.  There are front doors in every price point but, while they may look good, they may not provide the same level of security that a wrought iron door can.

Your home is your sanctuary and in it you should feel safe and secure.  It is no wonder that wrought iron doors have been used for centuries to provide the ultimate protection. Whether you live in a gated community or not, added security is never a bad thing and when it comes in such a beautiful package, it is a no-brainer.  Nobody wants to think about crime but, unfortunately, it is very real and homes get broken into every day.  Wrought iron doors provide a far superior level of protection than any other door type of door.  In fact, one of the best ways wrought iron doors provide additional security is that, often, if a criminal sees a wrought iron door they simply do not even try to break into that home.  The sight of such a strong, difficult to penetrate door is enough to send criminals the other direction.  Further, because they are not completely solid, you can often easily see who is standing at your doorstep without ever opening the door even a crack.  Additionally, steel is so strong it is very difficult to knock it down and is also fire-proof.

When you invest in a wrought iron door you make an investment in your home that will more than pay for itself.  Not only is a wrought iron door beautiful but it enhances the value of your home and provides long-lasting value because its strength does not get diminished over time from weathering the elements.  At Architectural Stone Elements, we have a wide selection of colors, styles, shapes and sizes of wrought iron doors to accommodate any home’s architectural style and any personal design aesthetic.
