Sliding glass doors can give you a beautiful view to the outdoors and let in more light, but they also have some security drawbacks. Glass panes can easily be broken and lifted out. The bolts used for sliding doors are also not as effective as bolts used in solid doors. Because of the risks that sliding glass doors pose to your home, it is important that you take extra measures to keep your home safe.
Some of the options you can consider to keep your sliding glass doors secure include using dowel rods, security sensors, a shatter alarm, sheet metal screws or washers, and heavier locks.
