It’s important to have the best security for Outward-Opening French doors. At Zentry Forced-Entry Security Solution, our Burglarybuster 1 product is the ultimate way to prevent criminals from breaching Outward-Opening French doors.
Below, we explain how effective the Burglarybuster 1 is and how it can help prevent home invasions.
The Problem - Insecure Outward-Opening French Doors
When faced with an aggressive attack or kick-in, Outward-Opening French doors will generally not withstand the force.
This is due to the vulnerable locks present at the centre where the two doors meet. As well as having a vulnerable glass centre, The screws used to support the hinges and the strike plate are very short. For both occupied and unoccupied homes, weak French doors can be some of the weakest points of entry for criminals.
To gain unlawful entry burglars tend to focus on the following:
Kicking in the door
Opening unlocked doors
Overpowering the locks
Breaking the glass
With the Buglarybuster 1, Outward-Opening French Doors can be made secure at a fraction of the cost of replacing your doors.
The Solution -
Install the Burglarybuster 1. This handy device prevents the door from being opened from outside even when existing locks have been opened by criminals using force.
Your Outward-Opening French Doors are made secure thanks to the special fixing method used. The Burglarybuster 1 employs a ¼˝ thick Carriage Bolt which is inserted into the entire thickness of each of the two outward-opening doors, to support the two brackets that hold the box section (channel) in place.
The Burglarybuster 1 prevents the Double French Door from being;
Prevents unlocked doors from being opened from outside
When main locks have been overpowered, prevents the door from being opened from outside.
Remove and check the size of the screws used to support the hinges and the strike plate in the door frame and if necessary replace them with 3˝ screws. If available locally additional hinge and strike plate reinforcement is worth considering.
To avoid the breaking of glass to gain entry replace existing glass contained in your Double French Door with a minimum of ¼˝ thick laminated glass or alternatively apply 3M security window film to the glass on the inside of the door.
Sash jammers should never be used to reinforce French Doors because the support fixings used may give way when subjected to a strong attack.
