Everyone likes to open their windows and doors and let that fresh air in, but some have a concern for the safety associated with leaving a screen product to protect us. We have a solution, The Guarda Security Door. Created by C.R. Laurence, this door is the ultimate security door.
In its description itself it gives away the type of door you are looking at, security. However the difference with this security door is that you don’t feel like you are looking out a jail cell with the bars across, you have an unobstructed view. The “screen” material is grade meshtech Powder Coated Stainless steel security mesh. Which looks like a screen fabric it keep the bugs out and vent the house but it is a Stainless Steel instead of a Fiberglass. This feature doesn't allow it to be cut through with a knife or kick in the screen. The frame comes in a variety of colors to match your house.
It is also very durable, making for those who have family members or friends who accidentally walk through screen doors very difficult to do so. In areas where there is a lot of wind Guarda doors and windows are good to have on as they can withstand severe storms and still be in tact. The frame is secured to the frame of the house with 3-5 inch long screws causing for a very secure and solid anchoring to the house structure. The exposed screws are then covers with a screw cap to prevent any tampering. Also that mesh is very secure and can withstand quite a bit of force from flying objects. There has been individuals involved in martial arts that have tried to kick the door down and are unable to do so.
Another wonderful feature is the multipoint lock system for unbeatable security. When its locked its really secure.
Monty from California a proud Gaurda front and back swinging door owner can shead some light on this topic: “Let me tell you about our newest (we already have one on our front door) Gaurda door installed on our back swinging door. We absolutely love it. “For the first time in over 40 years we left our back door open all night because for the first time ever we felt secure enough to do so.” The reward was that the next morning our entire house was filled with clean cool fresh air instead of air that we and our two cats shared every night. Even the cats seemed to rejoice in the new fresh feel and aroma of the naturally chilled air engulfing our entire home. “This has got to be one of our greatest home improvements projects ever.” When measured from luxury versus cost we consider it priceless and would highly recommend it to everybody, especially if they have and love pets, no matter what kind of pets.”
There are some negative aspects associated with this door system.
One being the cost, starting anywhere between $1200-1400 for a standard door and $300-500 for a standard window. for comaprison a Aluminum security doors run between $600-900 and is more of a safety door that a true security door. A wrought Iron security door custom made will coat between $600-1200 depending on the style. It can get expensive to replace every door and window you could possibly leave open.
They are all custom made so it you have to wait for the product. Depending on the season manufacturing time will vary. Most doors or windows take 2-4 weeks but may run longer based on demand and manufacturing capabilities. However you have to wonder is there really a price you can put on you or your families security.
Another is the key to unlock the door cannot be duplicated like your house key can, however your service tech should supply you with a code for the door which you can call in and get a new one replaced, but losing that key means you could potentially be locked out of your house and not having an easy way in.
Lastly, the installation, some customers don’t realize what needs to be done. It is not a free standing door, part of its great security system is that you can just take it off like other doors. Once Its bolted to the frame of the house it will require a professional to remove making it difficult to move the door if desired. Its really not a do it yourself project. From measuring to installation it take a Professional. That being said some customers want to install themselves, have complained with thedetailed installation process.
As you can see there are pros and cons to this product but if you think it is something you could use at your home or business please contact your local Screenmobile for a FREE estimate.

You know that summer is coming when people start wearing shorts and t-shirts instead of heavy sweaters, warm boots and long pants. We all love the time of year when we get to trade in our winter gear for swimsuits and flip flops so we can enjoy the summer sun and refreshing water.
If you don’t have your own pool, you can have some fun in the water at a local water park, community pool, river, lake or at the beach. However, the summer heat usually brings annoying bugs which are attracted to not only to your food, but also your warm skin that is fully exposed by shorts and bathing suits.
As if itching wasn’t enough and we still need another reason to avoid bugs, Insects can carry diseases in them which can enter your blood stream when they bite or sting you. It’s important to protect yourself and your family from more than just a simple bug bite. You’re also protecting them from strange diseases.
If you’re fortunate enough to have your own pool right outside your backdoor, you can enjoy taking a dip anytime. And to keep the insects away, you can install a pool screen enclosure. This will help you to keep bugs out and avoid being eaten alive by mosquitoes, gnats, no-see-ums, or other insects.
If you don’t have your own pool, but enjoy splashing around in the water at the beach, lake or community pool, we recommend that you invest in some good insect repellant to keep the bugs away.
Whether you have to travel long miles or mere feet to enjoy some fun in the water this summer, make sure you don’t invite the bugs to your party!
