Risks To Consider

Thieves may test dozens of every possible entry point to your home if they really wish to get inside. However, the most common point of entry is the front door. It’s the first thing they see, and it is often not sufficient enough to keep out burglars and others that might wish to harm you and your family. While they may seek other entrances to the home, 34% will try to enter through the front door, as criminals often see it as the easiest way to get inside.

Further, night time while home is not actually the main attack time. According to The University of North Carolina at Charlotte’s Department of Criminal Justice & Criminology, the most common time period for a burglar to attempt entry is between 12pm and 4pm.

Additional Locking System Details

Locking Hardware Options

Several lock options are available for our high-security doors. All come pre-installed into your door at the factory.

Unlike most other high-security doors, all of our bolts engage by a single, highly secure cylinder. A single action gives you a completely secured seal when you close your front door.

Mottura 85.771

Manufactured by an advanced Italian company since 1973, our standard Mottura lockset is as beautiful as it is secure. Comprised of polished thick steel bolts with the following arrangement:

  • Ten active bolts on the handle/strike side
  • Up to eight passive bolts on the hinge side
  • One active bolt on top and one on bottom of the door leaf

The lockset is highly protected. Even without upgrading your high security door with bulletproof steel, a firearm cannot practically defeat the lock: the independently controlled, fail-secure bolts keep the door securely in place.

We specially protect the lock mechanism itself with drill-resistant manganese-steel.

You may upgrade your secure entry door to have single-handed egress – at no additional cost. Single-handed egress offers easy locking by lifting the handle on either side. While inside your property, pushing the handle down disengages the bolts for easy exit.

FIAM X1R Easy / Smart

Another precision Italian manufacturer, Fiam, builds sophisticated motorized and automated locksets. Its security is as robust as our standard Mottura option, with the same 16-20 thick steel bolt arrangement.

The X1R’s motorization of all the active bolts allows for considerable convenience when entering and leaving your home. Clients who upgrade their custom security doors to the X1R may also upgrade with a digital keypad or biometric fingerprint scanner embedded into the door leaf, making entry into their home or office keyless.

Alternatively, your custom high-security door can integrate with a client’s third-party access control device. Installers can easily integrate the locking system with the home’s alarm systems for smart software, even allowing a security team to remotely monitor their client’s door’s security status.

There are other features too. The armored door can automatically fully lock whenever closed; a simple button press on the safe side can fully unlock the door – and there’s always a backup mechanical thumbturn as well.

The X1R Smart provides additional Bluetooth capabilities out of the box. Using a unique owner’s key card, the client may connect their secure entrance door to a secure phone app to control access for themselves and others. The owner can even run a log of attempted and successful entries into their entry.

Entry Door Lock Considerations

When using a high security door in an exterior residential location the convenience of operating it is of most importance. Unlike a panic room door which may only rarely be used, an entry door – whether a high security front door, or an armored side door – may be used multiple times a day and by multiple people.

Firstly, you want a high security door that is easy to lock. That will increase the likelihood of the door not being left open accidentally. Many burglars gain entry through nothing more than a door that was left unlocked. Our mechanical lock offers a mode where the handle itself can be used to engage the locking pins. This makes doing so extremely convenient.

Unlocking is also of importance, even if the options only make limited difference on security. Our doors are unlocked standard with a single key turn. (The key and cylinder themselves are highly secure, using a 3D profile and other measures that mitigate the risk of picking and bumping). If ordering multiple exterior security doors from us they can all be set to work with the same key.

Electronically upgrading the extremely secure door adds convenience. This allows you to gain entry without needing to remember to carry anything with you. This can be done with a code or, even easier, a fingerprint scanner. The latter allows you to train your family – even a small child – to open the door as needed. Another big benefit of all of our embedded access control options is that they allow for master / slave codes / fingerprints. This allows you to give temporary access to housekeepers and other guests which can then be revoked later.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How Long To Manufacture A Custom Security Door?

Design Time:

We typically turn around detailed shop drawings of your proposed high security steel doors within just a few days to a week. The time it takes to get this to production is purely up to the client. Many clients sign off within a day. Some clients like to take their time and wait on approval for production.

Manufacturing Time:

Our front high security doors are completely made-to-order, both as far as size, security and design. This is important to be able to properly match your home’s aesthetic. Many of the steps require hands-on work (such as welding or sanding). This therefore requires several portions – from engineering to fabricating – that takes longer than a standard mass produced security door. Production typically takes 6-8 weeks.

Shipping Time:

In order to achieve the best result, we utilize craftsman and component fabricators who are the leaders in their field, all over the globe. Generally our custom security doors therefore finish their production in Europe. Therefore shipping to the client takes 2 weeks for air freight or 4-7 weeks for ocean freight.

In some cases expediting options are available.

How Much Does A High Security Residential Door Cost?

Our highly secure, custom exterior door systems ranges from around $9,000 to $25,000.

Our system includes everything: Secure door core made of steel, custom milled wood cladding, secure frame, multi-point lock system, insulation, hinges, thermal seal, and much more. Additionally the doorway is entirely assembled at our factory, optimized and tested.

The variance in price is mostly based on the following factors: the security level of the door; whether the door core and frame will be bulletproof (and to what strength); whether the door lock will be mechanical or motorized, such as with a biometric scanner; whether the door is single or double leaf, and; whether the door has special design elements such as thick Mahogany or ballistic glass inserts.

How Is A High Security Door Installed?

Our high security doors are specially designed to easily integrate into a residential or commercial framed building. It can easily install into standard wood studs or into masonry.

Installation of a high security door is similar to that of a standard door. The door is pre-assembled in the factory, and its engineering is optimized there. A local contractor or builder skilled in standard door installation is likely able to handle this too.

The main difference in installation is the weight of the door system. While a standard exterior door may weigh under 75lbs, our high security door system for homes could weigh in excess of 400lbs. There, it is important to have enough labor on hand for the parts of the installation that involve moving the door.

The other item of importance is to identify the proper rough opening before the door begins production. A plum, level and square rough opening should be identified. Since this often isn’t the case, it’s best to simply take the largest opening within the rough opening that allows for this.

However, to help with these factors there are multiple features built into the high security steel door that allow for easy installation. Firstly, again, the door is already pre-assembled and optimized in-house. So as long as it is installed true-to-gravity, it will work flawlessly. On top of that though the following features are included:

  • Adjustable strike plate
  • Built in, adjustable shim system
  • Pre-installed barrel hinges
  • Pre-installed aligned boltwork
  • Adjustable hinges without requiring door leaf removal
  • Removable door cladding
  • Removable lower bolt, with optional in-floor bolt sleeve
  • Standard trim included
