DoorTechnik offer various levels of security doors. Depending on the perceived threat level, we have models designed to resist a range of threats, from opportunist attacks with minimal tools, to prolonged and determined attacks using heavy-duty power tools and the use of considerable force.
- Open out doors are more secure than open in doors
- Doors should be set back into a reveal, and not set flush with a buildings outer wall
- Surface mounted locks are more secure than mortice locks
- Exterior furniture should be minimised or avoided
- The walls should be as secure as the door
No door can ever be totally secure. If enough time and noise is allowed, any door can be defeated with suitable tools, but following the guidelines above will help improve security.
For general use, our G15 and G20 models have proved robust in long term use.
Our G15 model has been successfully tested and certified to PAS24:2016 - Enhanced security performance requirements for doorsets and windows in the UK.
For more severe threats, the X-Door Security range has been successfully tested at security levels 2, 3 and 4.
For certified security, our X15-2 and X15-3 models have been approved to LPS 1175: Issue 7 Security Rating 2 and 3 respectively (LPCB certificate number 1084a).
Size and door furniture limitations do apply to all of our certified security doorsets, so please contact us for advice to help achieve your required specification.
