Business owners understand how rewarding and fulfilling running and managing a business is. However, it also comes with some very stressful times. Shop owners know that one significant stress is the concern over the security and safety of their shop and stock. One way to mitigate this concern is to invest in solid iron doors which are an amazing security feature.
When coupled with an alarm or alert security system, wrought iron doors will keep your store safe from intruders and thieves. They are also affordable and durable, which means you can rely on these doors for many years to come without worrying about intruders damaging or warping the iron.
If you want to improve the security of your shop, consider these 5 ways that an iron door can help you protect your shop and merchandise.
1 – Durability
One of the best features of our luxury iron doors is their durability and sturdy nature. Iron is the perfect material to choose when you are looking for increased security because it will not be worn down by inclement weather or extreme heat or cold.
This means that the integrity of the door will not be weakened at any point throughout the year so that you never have to worry about replacing your door to retain your shop’s security.
This feature has the added bonus of minimizing upkeep. Without the worry of rust, warping, or breaks in the iron, you will save a lot of time and money. Your peace of mind will stay strong without the need to regularly check on the state of your shop door.
Thankfully, durability does not mean a lack of style. With custom iron doors, you will work with our team to design the perfect doors for your shop. This means that not only is your shop secure, but it will also be welcoming and look both sophisticated and elegant.
2 – Strength
When it comes to security, the strength of your shop door is essential. Our iron doors are designed with strength in mind so that you do not have to worry about an intruder breaking or damaging your door and property. When you use heavy-duty locks alongside your iron door, you can rest assured that your store is kept safe and secured.
There is also the option of installing double iron doors, which add stylistic interest without sacrificing strength or durability. This style of door complements larger entryways and makes a dramatic statement to your customers and those passing by.
You will also allow natural light to flow into your shop floor, creating an enjoyable shopping experience and the illusion of larger shopping space.
Unlike double doors made of other materials, when made of iron these doors still help to prevent break-ins and damage. However, keep in mind that some double iron door styles do not offer the same amount of insulation as traditional single iron doors.
3 – Embedded Locks
It can be easy to assume that burglars simply break down the door or glass to get inside your shop. However, there are more sophisticated criminals out there who use equipment to remove the door from its hinges. There are also some that use tools to pick the lock without leaving a sign of them ever being there.
With our custom iron doors, there is the opportunity to install an embedded lock that prevents these types of break-in attempts. They will fail to disable this type of lock, which increases your level of security exponentially.
The locks and hinges on traditionally wooden doors simply cannot compete with the strength and innovation of iron doors and locks.
4 – Quick and Easy Installation
While a fast installation is not inherent to security, it does allow you to quickly increase the security of your shop before intruders have the opportunity to strike. If you are waiting for the installation of your high-tech or sophisticated security system, a sturdy iron door is a perfect way to instantly elevate the level of security of your shop.
You will also find that an iron door is far more affordable than sophisticated security systems, making it an accessible choice for all business owners.
The quick installation of an iron door will also allow you to immediately increase the visual appeal of your shopfront. An iron door is not only a great security feature, but it is also a beautiful addition to any property.
The ability to customize your door also allows for your style to shine through so that you can introduce your unique shop to the world. Unlike steel doors, luxury iron doors make an impressive stylistic statement that will draw customer’s attention and increase footfall in your shop.
5 – Deters Intruders
Another great benefit to an iron door is that they act as a deterrent to potential thieves or intruders. You cannot disguise the strength and sturdiness of wrought iron, so intruders are aware that they will not be able to make a dent in the metal.
Many intruders have the habit of searching for vulnerable shops and identifying easy points of entrance. They will avoid shops that are protected behind an iron barrier because not only is it too much work to try to break in, but it will almost always result in failure. An iron door will dissuade a burglar from even trying to break into your shop.
