The Benefits of Security Screens This Summer

While we’re often keen to flick the air-con on full blast rather than enduring a hot summer night with little airflow, there are many benefits to keeping the windows and doors open instead. 

Letting the cool sea breeze naturally drift through your Geelong, Surf Coast or Bellarine Peninsula home whilst reducing your electricity costs is a bonus to choosing this natural option. But if your property is without efficient fly screen doors or windows usually, this means sharing your space with insects, bugs and mosquitos. Plus this may also mean your home is un-secure while you sleep.

Did you know?

One in every 240 homes in Ocean Grove were burgled in 2019? Unfortunately leaving our windows and doors open can sometimes invite opportunistic crime as well, a threat no one can risk. Therefore, now is the perfect time to equip your home with these nifty yet strong additions to ensure you are not left vulnerable to external security threats. 


The best way you can keep your cool and your possessions, is with high-grade security doors and screens from Geelong Security Doors. We have been operating in Geelong and along the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula for over 30 years, we are locally owned and operated and use our experience and knowledge of the best and strongest security screens on the market to deliver you peace of mind.

What exactly are the benefits of security doors?

Our screens doors are robust and designed to keep people out, both for residential and commercial premises. Unlike old-school fly mesh, modernised screens use durable stainless steel to keep the bugs (and the criminals) out while allowing breezes to flow through your home.

High-grade screens like this also assist in keeping your pets inside and can withstand damage from their claws scratching at the mesh. Alternatively, we have doggy/cat door options.

A solution to suit any entry point

There are plenty of customised screen solutions which can cover any entry points – from doors, through to windows and vents.

To make sure the best option is fitted to your property, an expert (from our team at Geelong Security Doors and Shower Screens located in Ocean Grove ) will measure up your space on the spot and deliver a custom solution that will optimise your security and the ability to keep the space cool at the same time. 

The added benefits of security screens

Natural ventilation, security, bug control and protection of your pets are just some of the benefits. Beyond that, they can also offer privacy, much in the same way a two-way mirror works. 

Our security doors and window screens are welded instead of being held together by screws or rivets. A weld is stronger than any screw or rivet…and it looks better too. With its seamless corners, ForceField is the best-looking security screen on the market. The heavy-duty aluminium frame and the marine grade stainless steel mesh are joined together in a mechanical and chemical bond. It is virtually unbreakable and provides complete insulation of the two metals eliminating a major cause of corrosion which is very convenient given for those living in a coastal region.

As well as the natural breeze, security screens are an excellent way to let natural light fill your home, simply by leaving windows and doors open.

These handy screens can also add value to your property, putting the final cherry on top of the many benefits at hand.
