What are the Benefits of a Security Screen Door in Queensland?

Your security door is one of the first things that a visitor sees when they visit your house. An attractive security door can enhance your home’s curb appeal as well as protect your home from unwanted intruders, assisted by your security screens and security windows. In this post, we discuss the best features of a security screen door from Frank’s Home Décor Centre and why you should get one for your home in Queensland.

Security with a Crimsafe Screen Door

A security door is your first defence against housebreakers. Our Crimsafe screen door features secure non-removeable hinges and strong aluminium frames. It is reinforced with stainless steel mesh that can’t be pried or slashed open. Install a security door to deter prospective housebreakers and it will provide you with long lasting security and durability for years to come.

Screen Doors Offer Privacy

Security screens offer privacy when your security door is open. They allow air to circulate from outdoors, whilst giving you the privacy of a mesh screen that provides concealment to passers-by on the street.

Screen Doors Offer Natural Light and Ventilation

A screen door can enhance the lighting in your home by allowing you to open your front door and let in more light and circulate air from outdoors. Light energises your living spaces and air ventilation helps to prevent stale or hot air from lingering in your home. Your security screen will ensure that no unwanted guests can enter whilst your front door is open.

Screen Doors Keep Out Insects

A security screen is a perfect defence against Australia’s most common flying and crawling nuisances, insects. Protect your household from flies, mosquitoes, and the crawling bugs, spiders and cockroaches that can slip in when you leave your doors wide open.

What are the Different Types of Outdoor Awnings in QLD?

Awnings overhang from buildings and roofs to offer shade and weather protection from the elements. They can take the form of louvre awnings, canopies or retractable shades. Awnings from Frank’s Home Décor Centre can offer sun and weather protection for your indoor furnishings. They may save you as much as 25% off your Queensland energy bills by reducing your heating and cooling costs. In this post, we list the different types of outdoor awnings available on the Australian market.

Awnings of Different Materials

Awnings can be made from various materials. Frank’s Home Décor Centre specialises in waterproof canvas, aluminium and fabric awnings. Our natural canvas and fabric awnings are tough and offer excellent sun protection, providing large areas of shade and effective water-resistance.

For locations that experience excessive wetness, we suggest waterproof canvas or aluminium awnings. Aluminium awnings are a great solution for locations that experience a lot of wind and rain, including coastal areas. Our treated powder coated aluminium awnings are:

  • Corrosion and rust resistant
  • Low maintenance
  • Long lasting

Folding Arm Awning System

folding arm awning is an adjustable system that retracts back into the wall when not in use. It uses extendable arms to offer the maximum projection. It can be adjusted automatically with a motorised push button control, or a cost-effective manual crank. The pitch is also adjustable. When fully projected, folding arm awnings offer great protection against the elements.

Canopy Awnings

Canopy awnings are often used for commercial premises and are made from rigid steel panels with powder coated components. They are ideal for buildings that don’t have an overhanging roof and can offer your premises shade and insulation against the hot Queensland sun. Metal canopy awnings are low maintenance, cost-effective and durable.

Louvre Awnings

Light and durable louvre awnings drop down from your roof to provide shade, privacy and weather protection. Your louvre awnings can be fixed, or adjustable with angled blades to filter the sun and control the air flow. The adjustable variety can be operated interally with winder controls.

Zipscreen Awnings

Zipscreen awnings can retract up and down along fitted aluminium tracks. They are a great solution to retain views from your large windows when they are fitted with screen mesh fabrics. Zipscreen awnings can protect against the sun and can be optimised with optional extras such as automation, sun and wind sensors and a remote controller.
