Security Window Screens

Whether you live in a nice suburb or in the metro area, with today’s social and political climate, the thought might have crossed your mind to add security to your home. You might have noticed in your area some gas stations and homes with bars on the windows and doors. If you’re new to the area, you might notice these homes and businesses with alarm, but don’t worry! These are often just an extra precaution to protect properties from intruders, yes, but also pests and even unwanted visitors. Secure windows and doors can protect your property value and your family for years to come, but you don’t have to compromise beauty for peace of mind. At A to Z Window Screens, we want our customers in and around Sacramento to enjoy the security of their homes and businesses, while the curb-appeal is unchanged and the windows and doors continue to function properly. Yes, with security screens you CAN have it all!

Why Not Bars?Sunrise Trademark security door model

When you install bars to your home, they must be fastened to the frame. This installation can damage the existing frames and create more work for you someday when you wish them to be removed. Additionally, bars prohibit windows from opening properly, meaning you cannot open the windows unless they open inwardly or raise up. Bars on the windows and doors can also create a serious safety hazard in the event of a fire. According to fire safety standards in your area, you probably have to leave the bars off one or more windows to allow a fire escape. This is a neon sign to any possible intruder that the window without the bars is the one that is easiest to access! Outsmart the thieves and choose security screens for your windows and doors.

Unobstructed Views and Other Benefits

Bars are unsightly to look at, but they’re also a pain to look through! Our security screens allow a clear, unobstructed view of the outside world while preventing the claustrophobic feeling that bars can create. Our screens come in a variety of colors to best match your home’s aesthetic. You can enjoy all the benefits of a security screen on windows and doors as well as custom fittings for fencing, patios, skylights, and more. While you’re enjoying your home, you can experience mosquito-free evenings with windows open and optimum airflow, protection from harmful UV rays and bugs. The screens are designed to withstand time and tough environments. They are corrosion-resistant and even last in salty coastal climates. Your pets won’t damage them and intruders can’t penetrate them.

Superior Protection that Lasts

If it sounds too good to be true, it sometimes is, but not with A to Z Window Screens! Here are all the reasons our screens work and continue working for years:

  • High-tensile stainless steel
  • Black powder-coated security mesh
  • Tensioning system

The high-tensile stainless steel which is corrosion-resistant is combined with a tensioning system that accounts for strength and effectiveness that lasts from installation onward. Our security screens can withstand everything from cat claws, dog teeth, knife stabs, and more. Nothing will get in or out. We’re so sure that we recommend Quick Escape Window Screens for your fire escape windows. Your local fire safety codes may require it, but we insist. You should have a fire escape plan in place for your home or business that includes two ways out. If one of the emergency escapes from your home is through a window, make sure you tell us when planning and purchasing your security screens.

5 reasons you need a screen door

Do you want to add convenience, safety and security to your home, all while letting in more light and air? There’s a simplesliding security screen door addition to your home that can bring a lot of added benefits: A screen door. Here are 5 reasons you need a screen door on your home.

1. Enjoy the outside air.

The No. 1 reason to add a screen door to your home is to allow more light and air into your home. With screen doors on your entryways, you can open up your home on beautiful days to let in fresh air and more light, without letting in bugs or other pests.

2. Added safety for your children and pets.

Pets and children are known for their tendency to run toward an open door or rush a door when the doorbell rings. A screen door adds an added layer of safety for pets and small children. When you open your entry door to greet a visitor, you still have a screen door in place to act as an added barrier. You can even use upgrade to pet screening for your screen doors to prevent damage to your screens by upgrading to scratch- and weight-resistant pet screening.

3. Lower your home energy bills.

Screen doors can help you lower your home energy bills. In the summer, being able to air at your home and cool it down naturally saves you from running your air conditioning more than you need to. Solar screen doors add to that savings by shading your home from the sun’s glare. In the winter, screen doors add an added layer of insulation to your home’s entryways.

4. Add a layer of security to your home.

Screen doors can help keep your home safer. While a simple screen door adds an extra barrier to your home, you also can opt for a security screen door. These screen doors allow in light and air like a traditional screen door, but they are made from heavy duty metal and cut-proof screening. That means you can open your home to the fresh air without opening your home to criminals.

5. Protect your door from the elements.

Screen doors protect your door from sun and rain, which can help extend the life of your door. When you buy high quality screen doors, like custom screen doors from A to Z Window Screens, you will get powder-coated screen doors that won’t rust or fade from the elements. With screen doors, you can preserve the curb appeal of your home.

There are many advantages to adding screen doors to your home — These are only a few! Whether you are in need of swinging screen doors, security screen doors, sliding screen doors, retractable screen doors or screen doors for your French doors or other specialty doors, call A to Z Window Screens! We can fit your home with any type of screen door you need, so you can realize all of the benefits of screen doors.
