Why are these doors classified as security doors?
Amplimesh® Security screen doors come standard with triple locks. Triple locks (three point locks) have a top and bottom lock, in addition to the standard located lock located in the middle. All three locks will deadlock with the key from inside or out and with the snib from the inside. The top and bottom locks are connected to the main lock body with either rods or cables. People can often be confused as they think they have to lock this lock at three points, however this is not the case. A three-point lock door is locked into the locking style of the door jamb at three points and offers considerable more strength to the overall door lock for fundamentally the same effort.
From a practical point of view, a triple lock means that you can feel confident and secure day and night to lock and leave the door open. Peace of mind.
