Security door, steel vs aluminium

im looking for a front and rear security door for our house. below os a link to what i am looking for, i can get these in either steel or aluminium frame.

I dont know what to go for, either steel or aluminium frame. one place i went to say that steel frame is the strongest, the other says aluminium is the strongest, im confused.
anyone have any experience of what is the strongest door to get?? and why?? most doors i see are aluminuium, but are they the best and strongest?.

The aluminum security doors are maintenance free (no rust) but not as secure. The grille work is heavy aluminum but can be cut through eaisly. The lock is also a weak point. Steel security doors have solid steel bars welded to the steel door frame and have a double key cylinder deadbolt lock. Need security.....go with the steel doors.
