Protecting Your Interior & Exterior DoorsFrom homes to businesses and public spaces, security is a critical factor in keeping people safe. But when it comes to doors - the primary points of entry for many threats including vandalism, illegal access, riots and more – property owners must take extra precautions at all times.
To ensure your exterior and interior doors are secure from any unrest or danger that may come with them, here are some key tips:
Installing security systems in different places
Many property owners mistakenly overlook the need for security beyond their entrance and exit points, leaving other doors vulnerable to possible intruders. Unfortunately, when locked out of one door perpetrators can often find another way in if those areas are left unprotected. To keep your home or office secure from any unwanted visitors, it’s important to vigilantly protect all entryways; not just the main ones you may think they’ll try first.
Adding security enhancement features
The next point to consider is adding security enhancement features to your interior and exterior doors, and there are a few options you may want to explore:
Automatic closing systems
Automatic closing systems are an essential component of a comprehensive safety plan. They ensure that buildings are quickly and securely locked down in the event of a security breach or emergency situation. When activated, these systems close external doors and gates to protect occupants from danger and provide them with extra time to evacuate. Automatic closing systems also prevent unauthorized entry into a building after an alarm has been triggered.
Application systems for monitoring
Application systems for monitoring provide a comprehensive approach to keeping your property secure. These systems allow you to monitor every door and window in your building or facility with one or multiple surveillance cameras and sensors, giving you the ability to detect any suspicious activity quickly and easily. You can also customize settings so that only authorized personnel are able to open doors, as well as receive real-time notifications of any activity.
Security grilles and heavy-duty rolling doors
Security grilles and heavy-duty rolling doors are an effective way to protect exterior and interior doors against intruders or other potential threats. They can be used in various locations such as retail stores, offices, warehouses, schools, etc. They offer a robust, secure layer of protection while still allowing air ventilation and light transmission. They also provide superior strength compared to traditional locks and latches. For instance, security grilles are hard to pry open or kick in, as well as being resistant to corrosion and tampering. They can also be customized with different features such as keypad entry systems, motion sensors, and even automated open/close mechanisms to suit specific needs or requirements. Grilles are also aesthetically pleasing and can be tailored to fit almost any opening size and shape so they blend in with the rest of the décor while still providing effective security. And they are relatively easy to install and maintain. All of this provides a high level of security for business owners, employees, and customers alike.
Motor operators with battery back-up
Motor operators with battery back-up are a great safety feature for any security door. This type of system ensures that the doors will always close completely, even in the event of a power outage or other unexpected situation. The motor operator is equipped with an internal rechargeable battery, which will kick in when the regular power supply fails. This not only guarantees that the door will close, but also provides a layer of protection against forced entry attempts.
