When I lived in Rome everyone had multipoint locks on their apartment doors. One key turned bolts in up to 6 or 8 locations around the perimeter of the door. The door itself was usually quite thick and solid. There was no way to bust one of those in!

Brain teaser! How come places of business have door that open OUT, but homes have doors that open IN. It's pretty darn hard to kick in a door that opens out. <brain melting>

I always thought that fire code dictates that doors open out for businesses so those inside don't get trapped inside if there is a sudden stampeed to the exits, to prevent a situation whereby everyone is trying to get out at once and they are crushing those nearest the doors into doors that open in, but can't be opened due to the cruch to get out.

As to the hard part: Why do home doors open in?

Is it because most home entry ways have screen doors that open out, and it would be mighty tough to have both the screen door and the main door both open out?

Three simple changes would prevent most break-ins.
1). Casement windows.
2). Metal basement door with metal frame.
3). Outward opeing entry doors.

Houses are so poorly designed for security and the cost would be minimal during construction. But you can count on the building inspector to make sure you have a drip pan under your washing machine!
