Security doors offer a physical barrier designed to deter and delay intruders for a specified time period. These doors should be used in conjunction with secondary defences and specified accordingly. Sec2’s Security Doors are tested to ENV1627.
The SD4 and SD5 doors are further enhanced for blast resistance and tested to BSEN 13124-2.
To enhance this doors security performance each door comes with a protection astragal that is formed flush as part of the outside face of the door leaf.
The frame ( or on double doors the inactive leaf) has a step in its edge to ensure that the astragal is able to sit flush making it more difficult to attack than other door types with either no astragal or a joggled astragals.
The doors are also hung on four stainless steel hinges complete with security dog bolts. The doors are supplied with four fixing points per side which sit behind the door leaf meaning that they are protected whether the door is fitted inward or outward opening. Each door is supplied with our variable sub frame cloaking the gap between the building structure and the main door frame, further protecting the door fixings from external attack.
The SD range of doors are supplied fully assembled with hardware fitted as standard which when combined with our adjustable fixing feet and variable sub frame drastically reduces the installation time on site which in turn adds value to a project. The single fix design of our doors can offer great cost savings when priced against overall installation times for timber and the inherent durability of steel means that in areas of high traffic or potential abuse the “whole life” cost of a steel door outweighs that of a timber door set.
We can offer our External doors either primer finished, powder coated or wet spray finished and can also pattern the door blade from a range of designs to allow for a more traditional aspect to the door set. We also have a range of attractive woodgrain PVC laminates which offers the traditional look of timber with the modern durability of steel.
The use of security doors is particularly project specific and a number of questions should be addressed before specification is finalised. We would recommend discussing your requirements with our office to evaluate the appropriate level of security door.
