What is the Best Garage Door for Security?

Garage security is important for a number of reasons. It’s very likely that you keep valuable items such as your car, motorbike, cycles and more inside. You may use the room as an extension to your home with a home gym, games room or such. It could even be that your garage is attached to your house with your home being accessible from the garage. Even if you don’t keep expensive items in your garage, or use your garage for anything other than storage, you may still be wondering “how can I make my garage door more secure?”

The Different Types of Door? 

Let’s start with looking at the most secure type of garage door. With many options available, security may be your deciding factor when it comes to choosing your new garage door. So, what is the most secure garage door? 

  • Up and over doors – manual and automated
  • Roller doors
  • Wirelessly operated doors

Whichever you choose, all today’s garage doors are designed with security in mind so even the most basic of garage doors feature locks that are far more secure than the common bolt lock. From manually operated doors which incorporate multi point locking to wireless systems which can identify an unlocked garage door from a smart phone, there are many design features that make the modern garage door a far more secure option than older models. 

We don’t like to advocate for any specific type of garage door as we consider them all to be extremely secure. To be honest, we wouldn’t fit a garage door that wasn’t secure, no matter what you use your garage for. Of course, there are various levels of door to consider depending on the technology involved, the quality of the material used etc. It’s like everything – there is something to suit all budgets but all of them are designed to keep out intruders and keep your items safe. 

It’s important to have a secure garage door for a number of reasons. Not least to keep out intruders but if the unthinkable did happen and your garage door was breached, your insurance company would be looking at the standard of your door. You are far less likely to be paid out on your claim if you have an old garage door in need of repair.
