What Is the Best Front Door for Security?

You are here:

The best front doors for security have reinforced frames, a multi-point locking system and premium adjustable hinges. Double glazing should be laminated and certified to PAS 24 2016 standards.

When choosing a front door, it is essential to consider security and opt for a model that provides you with the highest possible level of protection from forced entry or vandalism. 

Brackenwood supplies only the highest quality front doors with enhanced security, made to police-approved standards. Here are the elements of security that you should look out for when purchasing a front door:

  • A multi-point locking system – Brackenwood doors have a ten-point locking system with two hooks, two finger bolts and a deadbolt for maximum peace of mind
  • Multiple opposing steel hooks to maximise strength
  • Anti-lift bolts to prevent door locks from being dislodged
  • A centre latch for ease of day-to-day operation

We also provide an optional premium upgrade to SBD solid or limited glazed doors for the ultimate protection from unwanted intrusion.

Should you opt to include a double glazed panel in your front door, the best way to ensure optimal security is to insist that the glazing has been performance-tested to BS EN 356:2000 standards and that the sealed unit features at least one sheet of 6.4mm laminated security glass that is compliant with PAS 24 2016 standards.
