Securing Inward-Opening French doors is crucial, as they are commonly targeted by criminals when seeking entry. At Zentry Forced-Entry Security Solutions, our Burglarybuster 3 product is the ultimate security solution for French doors.
Below, we explain how effective the Burglarybuster 3 is and how it can help prevent home invasions.
Insecure Double French Door
US Inward-Opening French Doors are extremely weak and will generally not withstand an aggressive attack or kick-in.
Double French Doors are the most vulnerable of all doors mainly because there is little support in the centre of the door where the two doors meet and may contain vulnerable locks. The screws used to support the hinges and the strike plate are very short, and the glass is also vulnerable to attack.
As a result, criminals target Double French Doors and these attacks can potentially create the most dangerous of incidents for residents.
To gain unlawful entry burglars tend to focus on the following:
Kicking in the door
Opening unlocked doors
Overpowering the locks
Breaking the glass
Existing doors can be replaced with doors containing strong security including better locks and security glass but are expensive. We can show how your existing Double French Doors can be transformed to secure doors, at a fraction of the cost of replacing your doors.
In three simple steps, we want to show you how the Burglarybuster 3 can help secure Inward-Opening French Doors.
Install the Burglarybuster 3. This amazing device both reinforces the door to block kick-ins and also prevents the door from being opened from outside even when existing locks have been opened by criminals. Now a US market leader, this unique product is the strongest locking device available for securing French Double Doors.
This is mainly because of the special fixing method used whereby a ¼˝ thick Carriage Bolt is inserted into the entire thickness of each of the two inward-opening doors, to support the two brackets that hold the box section (channel) in place.
The Burglarybuster 3 while acting as a secondary lock cuffs the two doors together and 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. If necessary, replace them with 3˝ screws. If available locally, additional hinge and strike plate reinforcement is worth considering.
To deter criminals from breaking glass, 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.
