Default Burm and Afrock escape proofing

What's the best way of making sure that one of these won't get out? This is for when they are little. I'm still after a nice big Burm, the Afrock would probably be there at a later time, and they apparently get difficult to lose when they grow, but for when they're little I'm still a bit worried about the snake going missing for good.

Proper viv with a key lock is escape proof. When bigger definitely want a solid back instead of the typical hardboard.

Yeah, that's what I'd do when my snakes are bigger

Also, are hinged doors any better than sliding ones when they get big?

I know, and you said she was gone for 2 weeks! I'd hate for that to happen with my snakes.
