For people who are not so lucky and still want to enjoy quality time in the garage consider screen doors to make it happen. Screen doors is basically a garage door hardware added to allows people to enjoy working in the garage with the door open without worrying about dirt debris and bugs. Screens are made from high quality vinyl screens with different tints available; the selections are quite wide and you can simply find the right one for your garage. Some screens come with fiberglass or aluminum frame. They have their own tracks and railings and can be installed with or without additional door in front of them. Some people opt for framed screen doors especially when they dont plan on installing other types of door hardware.
You can still enjoy high functionality of both bays by moving the screens according to their railings. If your garage doesnt have enough room for sliding screen doors use pull down screens -- just like window shades. The cassette is mounted at the top of the door opening and you can simply pull down the screen all the way to the bottom. My personal favorite is the roll-up screens; they dont use framing and are perfect for combining with other garage door hardware. When I want to have privacy and maximum security I simply close my steel door shut. As soon as I want to work inside my garage I simply open the door and roll down the screen. It also has a zippered opening -- I can walk in and out while the screen is down -- and it is very practical to use. When you dont need the screen door simply roll it up and you are all set; no additional storage space or handlings needed.
What this means for the homeowner is that you need to ensure that you employ the services of a skilled experienced installer of good repute and upon whom you can reply to use sufficiently robust materials to make sure your screens are able to withstand force and attempts to prise them off or open. Therefore if youre looking to purchase new security screens for your doors and windows ensure that you buy a product that meets the standards set by Standards Australia in its manufacture (AS5309) so that you can be sure it will be robust and strong enough to provide a reasonable level of protection for your home.
From a professional security perspective a proper home security door should be constructed of heat - strengthened (tempered) aluminum or galvanized and powder coated steel. Not only are these doors stronger they also offer greater protection against rust and corrosion which results from extended exposure to the weather. Double-check the door to make sure it has reinforced corners and that the corner joins are fully welded to the door. Preferably the home security screen door should have three or more hinges with fixed hinge pins that cannot be removed.
