Are the doors secure?

All Bold as Brass doors come fully fitted with a PAS23/PAS24 multipoint locking system. BS standard lock cylinders and these can be key operated or handle operated depending on the door style and type. Other lock types are available and additional features such as our high quality 2D adjustable hinge fitted as standard mean your door works perfectly for years to come.

The multilayered construction of our doors means that our front doors are extremely resistant to manual attack such as impact force or prying; and unlike metal doors timber does not "bend and hold" typically seen during forced entry on metal doors. Our entrance doors also encorporate our unique cross laminated strengtheners within the door to stop warping which some competitors try to copy.

Pirnar and Shield doors are extremely secure due to their metal construction and their ultra slim multi seals that make it very difficult to pry during manual attack. Biometric fingerprint lock system is also available for ease of entry and peace of mind. Shield doors can be made so secure that even bullets can not penetrate them. Maybe not something most of us need to worry about but demonstartes the level of security we can offer.
