Composite Door Security

By having the Security Upgrade a much higher level of force resistance can be achieved than that of standard security. A Security Upgrade helps to reduce crime by raising the standards of security features.

We also offer an optional upgrade of security extras, including Ultion Cylinders, laminated external glass, security chain and spy hole:
