Security Doors and Fire Rated Security Doors – Design and composition

By Rodney Kilpatrick

Security Doors are usually made of steel or wrought iron material and are set in a frame of the same material. Steeldoors4u supply Security Doors that are made of a double pan construction,  from a minimum of 1.2mm zinc coated steel mounted in a frame made from 1.5mm zinc coated steel. For High Security Doors 1.5mm steel is used in the door leaf. Using materials such as these it is highly unlikely that intruders will be able to smash through them without removing the whole door and frame. Security doors are often installed in industrial units or offices but can also be used in your home. Adding security could also bring your home insurance down and increase the value of your home.

Fire Doors Security Doors are made up of a mixture of materials like steel and timber, which is what makes them fire resistant. Building regulations state that loft and garage doors must be fire resistant. Steeldoors4u supply Fire Rated Security Doors that are made from a minimum of 1.2mm zinc coated steel mounted in a frame made from 1.5mm zinc coated steel.
