Security Locks

Safety of security doors

A not secondary aspect of security doors that is sometimes taken for granted is the anti-burglary resistance.

Despite the increasing need of safety and protection, the information about this important feature of security doors is very poor. Not all the people who are going to buy a security door know that there is an European law that classify the locks systems in 6 degrees of security. As far as security doors and in particularly Italian market, the reference classes are 2-3-4.  

Briefly, we lit the tests:

1) IMPAC TEST ( the less invasive)

2) STATIC LOAD TEST ( it gives as result the deformation of the door solicited by pushes) 

3) MANUAL BREAK-IN BY DIFFERENT TOOLS ( the most invasive and important)
