French Door Security: Burglary Prevention

Thursday, April 12, 2012
Replacement French Doors add light and beauty to your living space, but larger glass surfaces act as vulnerable entry points for intruders. Here's how to have the artistry of French Doors without compromising safety.

Laminated Glass Increases Security

Fortifying your custom French Doors with laminated security glass will decrease the likelihood of a break-in. Since glass is typically more fragile than wood or vinyl, an intruder can easily break French Door windows with a crowbar or steel-toed boot. Brands like Andersen use high-performance Low-E double-pane windows in their French Doors to offer an extra layer of protection.

Durable Hardware Adds Protection

All exterior doors require proper locks for home safety. FAS Windows & Doors carries multiple hardware options to provide security without sacrificing style. Consider locks that cannot be popped by a credit hard or screw driver, such as exterior hinged or sliding door turn key locks. Locks at multiple points along the frame, such as interior foot or top locks, make unwanted entry even more difficult.

We offer a full line of replacement French Doors from top brands like Andersen, Simonton, and Eagle at factory direct pricing. Visit our Orlando showroom or call to schedule a no-obligation, free in-home consultation.

From Our Customers

We wanted to get quotes from several contractors in the area so we contacted FAS. Their price is a little higher but they were better in answering questions and getting back with us. The sales rep made an appointment and he showed up when he said he would. He did a very good job of explaining the product lines that they had and why they were better quality than what we had in our 25-year old house. He followed up with us, answered our questions quickly and he's gotten the paperwork to us so that we can get the energy credit from Duke Energy. We're very happy with him. We got new windows for our home and they normally come with screens but we were able to get half screens where we wanted in full screens and they fitted the windows to all the openings exactly. My husband was really happy with the installation team and the quality is very good so far.
