Blast- and bullet-resistant security doors represent a crucial investment in commercial, industrial, and even domestic settings. By selecting physical security solutions, property owners benefit from the highest level of performance in architectural safety and security. These reinforced products are designed to absorb impact forces well in excess of those typically associated with manual forced entry. The added-value of this goes far beyond mere peace of mind.
Everyone wants to protect their assets from damage or theft. While effective surveillance and other security measures offer a means of deterring criminals or identifying them after the fact, the best security solutions stop crimes from occurring in the first place.
With Armortex security doors, you can restrict or prevent access to your property, even in the most extreme scenarios. In many cases, you may not even need to renovate your property to accommodate a robust, ballistic and blast-grade solution.
Why Retrofit Security Doors?
Retrofitting is a key part of our business as material suppliers at Armortex, as the cost and timeframes of total renovation are prohibitive for many of our customers. We work closely with architects to ensure that all our security doors and windows are suitable for integration into existing structures, to ease the burden of installation times and reduce the likelihood that our customers will incur extra construction costs.
Retrofitting security doors is more cost- and time-effective than revamping an entire entryway or façade to accommodate a new component.
What are the Challenges?
The challenges of retrofitting security doors occur on a job-by-job basis. By that, we mean that no retrofitting project is the same, so the challenges will vary. There may be difficulty ensuring that existing structures can handle the added load of metal-reinforced fixtures. It can be difficult to ensure that suppliers meet exact specifications. Material quirks, such as how buildings react to different conditions (i.e. temperature), may require architects and contractors to work reactively to unavoidable changes.
