Exterior doors with glass - are they safe

Entrance doors with glass and security

Contrary to appearances, an external door to a house with glazing built into the sash is not so easy to break. What’s more, their construction is solid enough that it provides the same level of security as the construction of traditional doors. All because the production of external doors with glass uses tempered and laminated glass, which is resistant to mechanical damage, and additionally – to temperature changes.

The secret of the durability of external doors with glass is the construction of glazing units, which are the core of the glass in the door. These glazing units consist of at least two layers of glass. This makes them a solid barrier against unwanted guests. The protective barrier of the glass is often additionally reinforced, all thanks to filling the space between the individual layers of glass with argon. This action also positively affects the strength of the door.

It is worth noting that the designers of the entrance doors to the house always make sure that the door structure not only provides adequate protection against burglary, but is also solid enough to protect yourself from all kinds of damages. Even when the glass is broken, the individual pieces of glass will still be bound together, which in turn will make it much more difficult, and often even impossible, to open the door.
