Viewguard Security Screen Door – The Security Door In Disguise!


You’ve always wanted to be able to open your door to get the breeze, but were concerned about creating an “open door policy” for the bugs…. and thugs! A security door would be the next logical conclusion, but you simply don’t care for the tacky jail bars or overly busy designs found on most traditional security doors… and besides, who wants to deal with painting and repainting a steel security door that always rusts?!

AtoZScreens-SacramentoCA-ViewGuardSecurityScreenDoorWith this very dilemma in mind, the R. Lang Company (based out of Visalia, CA) decided to revolutionize the security door industry by creating a security door that DIDN’T LOOK LIKE A SECURITY DOOR! But how do you design a security door that LOOKS like an ordinary screen door, but is as strong and robust as a reinforced security door? After many years of research and design, the Viewguard Security Screen Door is the fruit of their labors!

Built to look like a simple, nondescript screen door, the Viewguard security screen door is a security door in disguise because it has NO BARS AND NO OVERLY-BUSY DESIGNS to obstruct your view or detract from your home! Just a simple looking outer frame and a specialized stainless steel mesh!

Features & Construction

The stainless steel mesh is very strong, affords awesome visibility, and allows breathtaking airflow!

The stainless steel mesh is very strong, affords awesome visibility, and allows breathtaking airflow!

At the heart of this door, the specialized stainless steel mesh panel LOOKS like ordinary black sun screen, but it’s actually a super tough protective barrier between you and any uninvited guests!

It’s nearly impossible to kick in, and can’t be cut with a knife, and yet, your visibility looking through the screen is amazingly clear! And the airflow?? The airflow through this revolutionary stainless steel mesh is better than any other security door on the market!

AtoZScreens-SacramentoCA-ViewGuardCustomerDoorAtoZScreens-SacramentoCA-ViewGuardSecurityScreenDoorCustomerThe specialized stainless steel screen is then locked into the outer frame with a patented mesh clamping system. The clamping system keeps the stainless steel panel rigid, and prevents intruders from being able to kick the stainless steel screen out of it’s frame.

The door’s outer frame is constructed of an architectural grade aluminum extrusion of massive proportions! Built above and beyond the call of duty, these four outer frame pieces are miter cut and then joined at the corners with a super strong key corner system keeping the door laterally stiff and strong.

AtoZScreens-SacramentoCA-ViewGuardSecurityScreenCustomerDoorBecause the Viewguard is made up entirely of high-grade 6063 T-5 architectural aluminum and 304 series marine grade stainless steel, it’s ideal for installing in areas that don’t have an adequate overhang to keep the rain away! Areas such as side garage doors often prove dismal for traditional steel security doors that rust in short order when exposed to wet winter conditions! The Viewguard is backed with a LIFETIME NO -RUST WARRANTY! Wouldn’t you rather have a security door that will look good and be maintenance free for a lifetime?

Continuous Gear Hinge System

Continuous Gear Hinge System

One of the Viewguard’s coolest features is the continuous gear hinge system. Rather than using a run-of-the-mill 3 pin hinge, the R. Lang Company chose to go all out by selecting a commercial grade continuous gear hinge system! One of the most expensive components on the door, it distributes the weight of the Viewguard along the entire length of the door! Unlike pin hinge systems that squeak, or are subject to break in, the Viewguard’s commercial grade gear hinge system allows the door to be opened and closed smoothly for a lifetime of maintenance free use!

Low Profile caps neatly cover the recessed bolts!

Also a first in the security door industry, the Viewguard is mounted securely in place with recessed stainless steel tamper resistant torx bolts! Because the bolts are recessed, the bolt heads are neatly covered with low profile caps! Forget the rusting, ugly exposed one-way bolts of traditional security doors! The Viewguard keeps it clean, simple and elegant!

Gray Pile Weather stripping on the top and sides and a rubber door sweep on the bottom make the Viewguard as bug tight as possible!

Gray Pile Weather stripping on the top and sides and a rubber door sweep on the bottom make the Viewguard as bug tight as possible!

To make the Viewguard Security Screen door as bug-tight as possible, the top and sides of the Viewguard’s tubular outer frame are lined with gray pile weather-stripping, and a rubber door sweep is installed across the bottom of the door. No gaps means no uninvited little guests!


Upgraded decorative paddle handle and rekeyed locks

The Viewguard Security screen door comes standard with a Kwickset doorknob and deadbolt, but the locks can be upgraded to a more decorative paddle handle and the deadbolt re-keyed so you won’t have to add yet another key to your key chain!

Available Colors

The Viewguard can be ordered with one of two standard color finishes; A white, powder coat paint finish, or a dark bronze anodized (almost black) finish. For maximum two-way visibility, the marine grade stainless steel mesh is available only in black.

Dear A to Z,

Because our dog gets very excited when someone comes to the front door, we were looking for a screen door that would be durable enough to put up with his enthusiastic greetings, but we were doubtful we’d ever find one THAT tough!

We were pleasantly surprised to find out that the Viewguard would be strong enough to put up with our golden’s greetings, and still look good.

It’s been several months now and our Viewguard still looks awesome! It is so nice having a screen door with a stainless steel screen that won’t rip! And even though we weren’t concerned about security (because of our dog), it’s still nice to know that we can get the breeze without worrying about intruders breaking in.

Very Truly Yours,

~ Vivian Coleman, West Sacramento, CA Read more »
