A Guide To Security Doors
Security doors are those designed to protect the inhabitants of a building from an outside threat. Here is a rundown of the security doors available from FSE Special Purpose Doors.
FSE Special Purpose Doors provide a range of 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, including:
• Bulletproof doors
• Blast resistant doors
They protect against weaponry assaults, forced entry and other criminal attacks, and blasts and explosions.
Ballistic 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 Kinds of Security Doors Are Available?
Ballistic doors are versatile and can be customised to suit several different requirements and environments. Much like fire doors, they can be installed as standard hinged doors, automatic swinging doors or even sliding doors.
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.
What Are Ballistic Doors Made From?
The material used to make your ballistic door will depend entirely on the level of security required. Security doors can be made from glass, metal (steel) and even wood. The aesthetic and security requirements of the building will each need to be considered when choosing what kind of ballistic doors you desire.
Types of Finishes
Today, these kinds of doors are extremely adaptable and aesthetically tailored to suit many designs and finishes.
Doors can be installed to integrate effortlessly with walls, panels, and overall design themes, allowing them to fulfil their function without “giving away” their ultimate purpose.
Who Requires Ballistic Doors
Ballistic doors differ from standard security doors as they are designed to protect against more serious threats. They may be a necessary requirement for commercial projects or an optional security request from a client.
- Financial (e.g. banks, loans businesses, cash rooms)
- Mining, Construction and related operations
- Retail (e.g. service stations, ticketing agencies)
- Security, Law Enforcement (e.g. police stations, prisons)
- Government and Public (e.g. embassies, schools or hospitals)
Private and other commercial clients can also request that ballistic doors be included in their projects.
