The many benefits of these doors
Our Secure House communal doors have the longest life span and will deliver both longevity and practicality due to the inclusion of heavy-duty hinges, commercial application locks and robust door closers that always ensure the doors are closed and secure at all times.
What’s more, when it comes to health and safety and achieving relevant building regulations and standards, all of our internal doors are fire rated to 30 or 60 minutes as standard.
When choosing a communal door for any property, be it commercial or residential, there are numerous additional options and elements to consider, all of which will help to extend the life of the product.
What’s more, our expert consultants are happy to advise on this particular aspect.
For example, it’s worth discussing the many different locking systems as well as heavy duty hinges that are available on today’s market.
Extending the life of a door: our top tips
Since a communal door will be opening and closing multiple times a day, maybe hundreds of times a day, in the first instance we would recommend the implementation of security electronic locking with every communal door set as this will provide both longevity and reassurance.
If this is the route you decide to implement, you will have the utmost peace of mind that your communal entrance doors are locked and secure all around the clock, day and night, 365 days of the year thus enabling them to last longer.
In addition, as an extra level of security, they can only be opened via intercom and with a manual key so you can rest assured any unwanted guests or intruders won’t be able to access the building.
If you are replacing a current set of doors already installed in the property, our system can also be adapted to work with existing intercoms to ensure fast, seamless, smooth operation for residents or occupants. At the same time, we are also able to provide a bespoke servicing contract to provide fast response in the event of an emergency.
Heavy duty industrial hinges are also an absolute must-have when it comes to any communal door that you would like to be in place for a long time. Heavy duty hinges will support the extra weight demanded by communal door and the frequency of it being opened and close.
If it incorporates security glazing – which is often slightly heavier than standard glazing – commercial grade hinges should always be specified.
