Additionally, our in-house design teams are instrumental in creating the superior quality and craftsmanship that sets our doors apart. Their expertise and attention to detail guarantee that every security door is meticulously designed to meet our high standards.
What's more, all our security doors are proudly manufactured in the UK. This allows us to maintain strict quality control measures and support local craftsmanship. Furthermore, our commitment to sustainability is reflected in our use of responsibly sourced wood, ensuring that our doors are not only secure but also environmentally friendly.
Stronghold security doors are designed to provide exceptional resistance against forced entry attempts. Our doors are equipped with reinforced galvanized steel, which offers robust structural integrity and durability. The multipoint locking system ensures enhanced security by locking the door at multiple points, 4 ways, with at least 11 shoot bolts as standard.
To further strengthen security, our doors feature cylinder defenders, which protect against lock snapping and other cylinder-related attacks. Additionally, we utilize P2B glass, which is triple laminated and glazed, filled with argon gas, and 46mm thick. This advanced glass technology enhances the door's resistance to break-ins.
For customers seeking additional security measures, we offer optional features such as bulletproof doors, providing an extra layer of protection against more extreme threats. Moreover, our biometric system with fingerprint access offers a cutting-edge security solution, ensuring that only authorized individuals can enter your home.
Stronghold security doors are designed to withstand various weather conditions and are suitable for all climates. The outside panels of our doors are made from engineered wood, which ensures that the natural wood quality is preserved while offering excellent weather resistance. This means that our doors won't expand or shrink, even in challenging weather conditions. In fact, they are so weather-resistant that they can withstand exposure to water.
In addition to the engineered wood panels, the steel components of our security doors are galvanized. This galvanization process provides an extra layer of protection against weather elements, ensuring long-lasting durability and resistance to corrosion.
For customers looking for even greater durability, we offer the option of Ruukki steel. This type of steel is four times more durable than standard steel, making it an excellent choice for areas with extreme weather conditions or specific climate challenges.
Stronghold security doors are designed with energy efficiency in mind, offering benefits that go beyond just security. One of the key features that contribute to energy efficiency is the insulation. Our doors are insulated with rock wool, which provides additional insulating value.
Rock wool insulation is a highly effective material that helps to minimize heat transfer. It acts as a barrier, preventing the loss of heat during colder months and reducing heat gain during warmer months. This enhanced insulation helps to maintain a comfortable and consistent indoor temperature, reducing the need for excessive heating or cooling.
