An Overview of Residential Security Doors
Sometimes standard security doors, shutters or windows aren’t enough. Here is a look at the options for special purpose residential security doors.
Some residential spaces present very specific requirements when it come security that go beyond standard security doors, shutters or windows. Aside from these regular safety systems, heavy-duty security doors may be necessary for protection against more serious threats.
FSE Special Purpose Doors provide a range of special purpose residential 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.
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.
Residential security door sets (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 Residential Spaces Require Ballistic Security Doors?
Heavy duty security doors may be required in homes that have safe rooms or panic rooms, archives or record storage rooms, or storage spaces for valuables.
What Types of Residential Security Doors Are avaliable?
Despite being heavy-duty and able to withstand a volatile assault, our residential security doors are extremely adaptable and can be aesthetically tailored to suit many types of designs and finishes. Our security 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 residential spaces where room is limited. The FSE security door product has been designed and engineered for heavy duty use in special purpose residential applications.
• Sliding Doors: Our residential 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.
