Your safety doors should only ever be washed down with a very soft-bristled brush or cloth, using warm mains water and a mild detergent. Rinse well with mains water to remove any detergent residue paying particular attention to ensure all residue is flushed from the mesh retaining areas of the frame. Only mains water is to be used.

What is a colonial barrier door?
A barrier door is a door that doubles as a strong barrier. There are many different types of barrier doors. The term ’colonial’ refers primarily to the style of barrier door. Colonial barrier doors are technically classified as heavy-duty barrier doors. They do a great job at security while being representative of a classic colonial style, but they are not officially recognised as security doors. This is due to the wide openings in between the grilles. The good news is that Perth Homeguard has upgrades and enhancements which make them a perfect security door anyway. This is due to our locking mechanism and high-quality mesh.
What is the main reason to get a colonial barrier door?
Some people want added protection but are not fans of the diamond grille due to the aesthetic appearance (though we offer a fantastic range of colours and customisation options on our diamond grille security screens). The colonial barrier door is an excellent way around this. It is a beautifully elegant barrier door that also doubles at keeping out burglars – hitting two birds with one stone.
What are the different kinds of barrier doors?
There are many types and styles of barrier door. The major types would include diamond grille, decorative diamond grille, and cast. But then you can take into account whether the barrier door is to be single hinged, double hinged, or sliding. Barrier doors come in a variety of different colours and can come with none, 1, or 2 side panels. The mesh option you select for your barrier door will have an impact on security, as will the locking mechanism.
What is a flywire mesh?
A flywire mesh is the standard mesh found in residential Australian homes. They are made of aluminium and/or steel and their main function is to keep out flies and insects. They can also prevent rodents and debris from entering the home. Tuff Mesh and DVA Mesh are other options that are stronger and have additional security functions.
What is the difference between a barrier door and a security door?
A barrier door is very strong and robust and offers an excellent level of security, but it cannot be labelled as a security door unless it has passed the official standards. We do have plenty of doors that offer this protection if this is what you’re looking for. The criteria for being labelled as a security door are contained within Australian Standard AS5041. But a barrier door is still a great deterrent and a burglar will find it difficult to get in without sophisticated tools and making lots of noise. Our barrier doors are also bushfire tested which can buy you time in the event of a fire.
