A security door is your first-level defense from intruders. Since they’re known to be strong and solid, have you ever wondered what security doors are made of? This post will help you understand how it works, and how to choose the right materials and coatings to give you the best property protection.
What materials are used in security doors?
The most common materials used in security doors include steel, metal alloy, and aluminium. Betta Security makes their doors using aluminium and stainless steel mesh.
Benefits of Aluminium
Aluminium is strong
Because of its strength, it is used to make a variety of critical components in vehicles, aeroplanes and boats. When used to make a security door, it is a material that will last longer, withstanding daily use and also deterring criminals from attempting to break it.
Another advantage of using this strong material is that frames do not have to be as large, which means larger glass and mesh areas. This translates into more light and air into the home, while still making a robust, secure door.
Aluminium is Light
Aluminium is also extremely light. This means it can be easily supported by most existing door frames and therefore no need to modify door frames which can be costly and time consuming.
Another advantage of using aluminium for your security doors is that aluminium is damage resistant. The material has a strong powder-coated finish that resists scratches and impact, helping to ensure your door stays in better condition for longer.

Benefits of Stainless Steel Mesh
Compared to traditional flywire, stainless steel mesh is extremely strong. Not only does this mean you are less likely to accidentally poke a hole through it, but it also prevents criminals from breaking into your home through it. By contrast, flywire is an inadequate security measure.
Stainless steel mesh is also resistant to corrosion. This means that it is less likely to corrode over time through rust and exposure to moisture.
