An Overview of Security Doors For Schools and Hospitals
Some spaces in schools and hospitals require a higher level of attention when it comes to security. Let’s take a look at heavy-duty security doors for schools and hospitals.
There are certain public and private spaces, such as hospital and schools, that present specific requirements when it comes to security that go beyond standard shutters, roller doors, or windows. Heavy-duty security doors may be necessary for protection against more serious threats.
FSE Special Purpose Doors provide a range of special purpose security doors that adhere to Australian building standards outlined by the BCA (AS/NZS2343:1997). Our security range consists of a selection of ballistic doors:
• Bullet proof doors
• Blast resistant doors
What Is a Ballistic Door?
Ballistic doors differ from standard security doors as they are designed to protect against more serious threats. The material used to make your door will depend entirely on the level of security required. They can be made from glass, metal (steel) and even wood.
Security door sets for schools and hospitals (including frames, hinges, locks and viewing panels) are also fully tested and certified to ensure they can withstand a range of attack levels, including forced entry and projectile or blast penetration.
What Kind of Spaces in Schools and Hospitals Require Heavy Duty Security Doors?
Some schools and hospitals require perimeter security doors, extra document and archive security, doors for plants rooms and other machinery rooms, heavy duty doors for warehouse spaces.
What Types of Security Doors Are avaliable?
Despite being heavy-duty and able to withstand a volatile assault, our security doors are extremely adaptable and can be aesthetically tailored to suit many types of designs and finishes. They doors can be customised to suit a number of different requirements and residential spaces.
Ballistic doors can be fitted with a range of accessories, such as locks, fixings and glazed viewing windows. All security accessories must be factory fitted to ensure maximum resistance against threats. They can also be manufactured in a range of shapes and sizes to suit a variety of operations.
Much like fire doors they can be installed as:
• Hinged Doors: Our standard hinged doors are perfect for use in spaces where room is limited. The FSE security door product has been designed and engineered for heavy duty use in special purpose applications in schools and hospitals.
• Sliding Doors: Our sliding security doors come in a range of configurations to suit the available side-room and headroom. They are suitable in spaces where a conventional side hung door is impractical.
• Automatic Swinging Doors: Swinging security doors are perfect in for spaces where doorways accommodate traffic flow in both directions. They perform like a normal security door, the key difference being that they swing 180-degrees to allow traffic to move quickly and easily back and forth through the doors – very useful in hospitals.
