Vault room doors tested and/or rated in the above testing facilities and/or rated to the above global security standards.
Our vault room doors achieve an unprecedented security level from the highest-powered firearms, mob-style riots, and expert weapon attacks on your vault.
Our bullet proof vault room doors can meet UL standards for Level 3 handgun rounds and Level 8 assault rifle rounds. Ballistic steel hidden inside stops multiple rounds of each caliber, protecting humans standing inside the vault room.
Our vault door is certified to US Department of State Forced Entry SD-STD-01.01G resistance to riot attacks. Multiple experts continuously attack the door using sophisticated tools in several sections of the door – the only residential vault room door to achieve this protection level.
We clad vault room doors to match the house’s surrounding doors’ intricate millings, allowing for a discreet appearance. Solid natural woods and engineered woods available.
Our interior security doors can be pre-painted in the factory to any of several hundred RAL international colors. We mail a complimentary color wheel to all clients for precise matching to nearby hallway doors.
Some clients want their safe room to have one-of-a-kind designs. Every vault room door we create is custom and of limitless possibilities. The client can, alternatively, attach locally-sourced milling on top of our secure door core.
Mahogany, Oak, Alder & more.
Our sophisticated FIAM keypad allows for multiple users and complex codes.
We utilize the world’s most advanced biometric scanner, capable of storing over 100 algorithmic prints.
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.
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:
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.
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:
We believe in – and therefore only provide – protective vault room doors that meet specific forced entry ratings by the US Department of State.
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.
Client storing food in their secure 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.
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.
