    Stainless Steel Mesh: Meshtec Stainless Steel Mesh is the gold standard when it comes to security mesh. We use Meshtec’s 316-grade Stainless Steel Mesh because it is the highest grade stainless, which will not rust like lower grades of stainless steel. 316-grade stainless steel is commonly used near beach locations because it is considered marine-grade stainless steel.

    SINGLE Sliding Security Doors

    A typical patio slider has two glass panels, one pane is fixed (passive door) and the other pane slides (active door). On a Single Sliding Security Door, only the active pane is covered by the security screen.

    A Single Sliding Security Door is primarily used when security is only an issue when the door is open. Although some who have pets that tear up insect screens opt for something that cats or dogs can’t tear.

    DOUBLE Sliding Security Doors

    A Double Sliding Security Door covers both the active glass sliding door, as well as the passive (fixed) glass door. Glass is glass, whether the glass panel is stationary or movable, therefore many of our customers want to protect the entire opening with Sliding Security Screens.

    Both sliding security screens will have their own lock, so when you need to clean the passive glass panel, you can simply unlock the panel covering the fixed glass panel and clean your patio slider.

    QUAD Sliding Security Doors

    Quad patio sliders is a way of letting the outside come in. Quad sliding security doors are placed on the outside of your glass panels, to provide protection and security to not only the fixed glass panels, but also to the active sliding doors.

    All four security screens move independent of each other, therefore even the stationary glass panels can be accessed simply in order to clean. Once all four panels are locked in place, your entire quad patio slider is fully secure.

    1. Broom Stick Wedge

    One of the easiest ways to improve the security of a sliding screen door is by cutting an old broom handle or any length of wood that can be set in the track behind the passive glass panel once the active glass panel is closed.

    Cut the broom handle just a little shorter than the space between the active door and the adjacent jamb. It may not be the best means of adding security, but it is definitely better than nothing at all.


    1. Alarms and Cameras

    Adding an alarm system to any opening of your home (doors and windows) is a good idea! For the local thugs, this is often a good enough deterrent, because burglars don't like when the alarms go off and inform all in the neighborhood that they are up to no good.

    Alarms and cameras don't keep robbers out, but at least the cameras will get video of the break-in.


    1. Sliding Security Doors

    Sliding Security Doors are in addition to your sliding glass doors, they are installed outside your slider providing not only protection to the glass panels, but when you have your slider open to let the breeze in, these sliding security screens made of stainless steel mesh will give your family the security you are looking for.

    These security screens don't look much different from the fly screens on your sliders, but there is a night and day difference between the two. This is an actual physical barrier, unlike other 'security' solutions, yet this security mesh is practically invisible, therefore your view is not ruined.

    Security doors are a secondary door that increases the security of your existing door. Security doors are designed with powder coated aluminum frames that are rust resistant, and fitted with a stainless steel security mesh that is stretched between the frame providing a nearly invisible physical barrier to keep the unwanted out. The benefits include, but are not limited to:


    • Heightened security
    • Increased peace of mind
    • Improved ventilation
    • Pet proof
    • Intruder Deterrent
