Hinged, Sliding or Bifold – Which Security Shutters Are Best for Me? image

When it comes to your safety and the safety of your home or business, it is always essential to put diligent thought into how to help protect your house. While you may have never suffered a break in before, burglaries are an unfortunate fact of life which must be accounted for. Ensuring that your house is protected is of the utmost importance and this process can be enhanced by installing security shutters and blinds on your door. However, there is one important question to answer; which type of shutter is best for me?

At Guardian Screens and Shutters, it is our aim to help you with this facet of personal security, by advising our clients on what is best for them and their property. Allow us to take you through the three main options at your disposal.


The first type of security door are the conventional hinged doors, which are manufactured to subtly, but firmly, put up an exceptional defence system for your house or apartment. Hinged doors are the traditional form of security screen doors and are easily installed on any property. With a 3-point locking system and a number of different shapes possible, hinged doors blend practicality and aesthetic to encompass the very best in safety products. If it is a hinged door that you require, we strongly recommend looking at Crimsafe security doors. Crimsafe is at the forefront of safety technology and innovation, demonstrated by their patented Crimsafe Screw-Clamp technology.


In addition to the traditional hinged doors, you will also find many options for sliding security doors on the market. These aluminium security screen doors can be fitted in a whole host of different places, inside or outside your house. The great thing about these doors is the great subtlety they provide, despite also acting as a great safety measure. These sliding doors can look just like normal sliding doors and do not have to stand out like a sore thumb. At Guardian Screens and Shutters, we have a great selection of different sliding security doors, for any type of property.


Bifold doors are compartmentalised folding doors in the style that many restaurants and café’s around Brisbane use. These doors are popular in residential as well as commercial areas though, and they perfectly balance style and security.

Bifolds have an absolutely stunning look and are perfect when you want to open up your house in the peak of summer. Bifold doors give you the flexibility to be able to host events and change your outdoor setup, while still providing great security. Bifold doors from Crimsafe have ultra-strong ultimate framing and boast an easy gliding system.
