The weakest link in securing your home is often the doorframes. The material for a doorframe in many homes including new builds is often made from wood products that are of a low grade such as MDF. This is okay for appearance but lacks structural strength. A standard grade 2 or 3 lock uses the supplied door strike plate. The supplied strike plate is often less than 2 inches long and the screws that come standard are 3/4s of an inch.
Therefore, the use of a small pry bar, or even a quick kick, can see the door ripped open – tearing through the strike plate. The locksmiths and lock experts at KeyChange locksmiths offer upgrades to your doorframe. A strong, expensive door offers little protection if you have not addressed the weakness inherent in the doorframe. Talk to us about longer strike plates. These adhere better to the doorframe, and with hardened screws that are longer, these not only attach to the doorframe but also to the wall studs.
The doorframe and door reinforcement that we offer improve security to your office or home, discouraging even the most determined burglars from breaking in.
