With the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors (INTERNACHI) reporting that nearly 10 percent of today’s burglars are accessing homes through the garage, homeowners across Arizona and the nation are now seeking additional methods of enhancing their home’s security.
One Phoenix-based company looks to make the six-second garage break-in much harder on potential thieves with the launch of Garage Door Armor, a patent-pending security product designed to put a serious dent in the millions of burglaries that occur on U.S. soil each year.
“It’s a simple, affordable design, but it delivers when you need it to most,” said Thomas Mello, the designer of the product, the owner of A1 Garage Door Service and Repair and a member of the National Crime Prevention Association. “The Arizona Department of Public Safety received more than 40,000 burglary calls in 2014 alone,” he said, noting that 2015 burglary statistics have not yet been published. “And forcible entry was used in more than 55 percent of those cases.”
Because a substantial percentage of those burglars were gaining access to homes through the garage, Mello utilized his existing knowledge of garage door mechanics in designing the virtually tamper-proof Defender products.
“All it takes is six seconds, a wedge and a hammer, and they’re inside your home,” Mello said. “Garage Door Armor is a break-in deterrent that inhibits the ability of burglars to access the garage door’s release mechanism or emergency rope – meaning they won’t be able to get in.”
The first of two new Garage Door Armor security products, Garage Door Armor features an affordable price point ($29.95) and is designed to work with most common garage door opener models. Easily installed in seconds without the use of tools, Garage Door Armor features a maintenance-free design and is precision-engineered to maximize home security by making it virtually impossible for a burglar to access the home via the garage.
The second new product launch, Garage Door Armor Pro, retails for $69.95 and works with virtually all existing garage door openers. Also precision-engineered, Garage Door Armor Pro is best installed by a professional, but it offers the utmost in home security protection and is designed to sustain considerable amounts of force.
“Whether you’re at the office for the day or out of town for a month, our Garage Door Armor products offer the peace of mind you need while protecting your home,” Mello said. “It’s a simple, affordable way to avoid becoming another crime statistic.”
