What are Security Rated Steel Doors?

Security rated steel doors are doors that have been specifically designed and manufactured to meet certain security standards and ratings. These doors are tested and certified by independent third-party organizations, such as the LPCB LPS1175 to ensure that they meet strict security standards. Security rated steel doors are typically made from high-quality steel and feature advanced locking mechanisms, reinforced frames, and hinges to resist break-ins and forced entry. The doors are rated based on their ability to withstand different types of attacks, including physical force, drilling, cutting, and picking. The ratings range from basic to high security, with the highest rating providing the most protection against attempted break-ins. Security rated steel doors are commonly used in commercial and industrial settings, such as banks, government buildings, and data centers, where high-level security is required. These doors offer peace of mind, knowing that the property is protected by a door that has been thoroughly tested and certified to meet the highest security standards.
