All-Side Vault Locking

Lock system is pre-installed at the factory into your vault door

System Includes:
Installing locks on a high security door
Additional Locking System Details

Our vault doors offer several lock options, some more frequently used than others. All come pre-installed into the door at the factory.

Unlike other vault room doors, all of our bolts engage by a single, highly secure cylinder. A single action gives you a complete vault seal.

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 vault room door with bulletproof steel, a firearm cannot practically defeat our lock. The independently controlled bolts keep the door securely in place.

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

You may upgrade for single-handed egress – at no additional cost. Single-handed egress offers easy locking by lifting the handle on either side. While in the vault room, 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. Clients who upgrade their vault door to the X1R may also upgrade with a digital keypad or biometric fingerprint scanner embedded into the door leaf. Alternatively, the vault room 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.

There are other features too. The vault door can automatically fully lock whenever closed; a simple button press on the safe side can fully unlock the door. The X1R Smart provides additional Bluetooth capabilities out of the box. Using a unique owner’s key card, the client may connect their vault 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 vault room.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How Long Does Manufacture Take?
Our vault room doors are entirely made-to-order. We craft them to blend into your home or building – this requires several custom steps: from engineering to welding to bespoke milling. The process takes much longer than a standard, mass-produced door. Production typically takes 6-8 weeks.
To achieve the best results, we utilize craftsmen and component fabricators who are worldwide leaders in their field. Therefore, our custom vault room doors generally complete production in Europe. Shipping to the client’s home takes around two weeks for air freight or 4-7 weeks for ocean freight.
In some cases expediting options are available.
How Much Does A Vault Room Door Cost?
A certified vault room door ranges in cost from $8,000 to $20,000+.
Our system includes a secure door core, custom milled wood cladding, armored frame, multi-point locking bolts, ballistic steel layers (optional), concealed wiring for automation (optional), insulation, hinges, three-dimensional cylinder, and much more. Additionally, the vault door is entirely assembled at our factory, optimized, and tested.
The price variance primarily depends on the following factors: the security level of the door; whether the door core and frame will be ballistic (and to what strength); whether the door lock will be mechanical or motorized, such as with a biometric scanner; whether the door is a single or double leaf, and; whether the door has unique design elements such as thick mahogany or glass inserts.
Can I Just Place A Ballistic Panel On A Normal Door?

Attempting to convert a standard door into a vault room door has numerous issues, which can mostly be categorized as follows, from least important to most important:

  1. Design Issues – We’d consider this the least important issue, but to many clients, it is a deal-breaker for their door to have an obvious and unsightly panel covering it.
  2. Functional Issues – A standard door is not designed to handle the weight that ballistic material adds. The door will likely immediately be difficult to easily swing, and in the short term begin to have issues with the door being unable to close into place or be unable to open once closed. Both are obviously critically problematic in emergency situations.
  3. Security Issues – Most importantly, ballistics is actually the less important aspect of the door’s security. Resistance to attack is what’s of primary importance. A standard door with a ballistic panel attached is no harder to pry open or disengage the lock than the same door without a ballistic panel.

We believe in – and therefore only provide – protective vault room doors that meet specific forced entry ratings by the US Department of State.

What Else Should I Consider For My Vault Room Entrance?

There are additional features worth considering for a panic room’s entrance. 

We recommend having a mechanism for determining what is going on outside the door. Visibility allows you to know when the coast is clear and when to call the police. 

A peephole is one option; we offer forced entry and ballistic peepholes. 

For a more discreet option, we recommend using a camera system. You may use a camera pointed towards the panic room entrance or even place cameras throughout the home. The video can output into the panic room or be available on your smartphone or tablet.

Some clients entirely hide their vault room door. Builders will sometimes install faux paneling or shelving in front of it. In most cases, it isn’t practical since the room usually serves a day-to-day dual purpose, such as a bedroom or master closet. In all cases, a vault room door needs to be discreet – blending is accomplished by applying milling, which matches nearby interior doors. Our vault room doors are entirely custom and already clad at the factory, with milling expertly-designed to replicate your home’s other doors.

Storing food in panic room

If you plan to use your vault room to protect loved ones during an emergency, you may consider upgrading the vault room to include an overpressure system. The resulting positive pressure in the vault room significantly limits contaminants, biohazardous particles, and even smoke from entering the room through tiny cracks in the door system and other wall perforations. A proper air system will also filter out incoming air to medical-grade levels. Our team can guide you with solutions used by past clients.

How Is A Vault Room Door Installed?

Not only are our safe room doors custom-designed to fit aesthetically into a residence, but specialists also engineer them for easy installation, perfected by years of placement into hundreds of homes.

Our armored doors easily install into a structure’s wood studded, steel-studded, or masonry walls. The vault door frame uses numerous 4″ lag bolts to anchor into the surrounding wall. (Many clients also install ballistic panels to armor their vault walls.)

The primary difference between installing a vault room door and a standard interior door is the weight. Our doors have a multi-layered thick-steel core, and the entire unit (door and frame) can weigh well over 500lbs, especially if ballistic steel is layered inside.

However, our vault room doors also have numerous features that make installation easier and offer ad hoc flexibility. The assembly includes three-dimensional adjusting barrel hinges, a built-in steel shim system, an adjustable strike plate, a removable bottom bolt with an in-floor sleeve, removable door cladding, and more. 

Most importantly, our engineers and fabrication experts personally assemble, test, and optimize the full door system in the factory prior to shipment. As long as the client’s contractor carefully measures out the rough opening and installs the door with a careful eye to being level and plumb, the door will work flawlessly.
