    advice on aluminim or steel door is better for security

    Security Specialists

    Which type of door is better for security, an aluminium or steel door? I want to install a high-quality security door but I’m split between these two types of metals. I’d like to know which of these two options are the best to go with.

    "Hi Greg, steel painted with anti rust red undercoat be ideal, aluminium gives in under pressure."

    "Good morning purely based on comparing both types of materials. Steel is a stronger material than aluminium that is softer.
    Manufacturers use give preference for steel on the manufacturing of fire/security doors.
    Obviously you will need to consider the "all package" when choosing your door. Security features,design, insulation and what's the use is going to have.
    Hope it helps.
