In Feng Shui, the back door is the exit of Qi. For security reason, the back door is also the gateway or “getaway” for burglars. It may not be the second most important location compared to the bedroom but it posed the same risk as the front door in terms of security.
In fact, based on Crime Surveys, more than 50% of all domestic burglaries happened via the rear or side windows and doors. If burglars can be stopped from reaching these points, an actual break in can be prevented.
As such, it should be accorded the same priority as the front door with all the trappings of high security. Please Click Here for Front Door's type of locksets and accessories recommended.
As further reinforcement, it should also be fitted with a concealed rack bolt at approximately 6” from the top and bottom of the door.
If there is any glass panel on the door, it should be laminated to make it harder to break and fitted from the inside to prevent the putty or beading being removed.
