Security Garage Doors and Entrance Doors

By Nathan Dove | November 19, 2015

Samson Doors offer many types of specialist garage doors and front entrance doors, and we have several with tested security ratings for the now often required ‘secured by design’ rating.

Security is one of the top 3 features required by most customers when buying or replacing a new garage door. Where the garage  is integral, or as in most cases, a large amount of valuables are kept inside a garage, security is obviously a key issue.
Panel strength in a door is one part of the equation but the locking system is more important. There are now several garage doors with the prestigious ‘secure by design’ rating, which means the door has been tested and approved to a standard by a third party. In reality this is a rigorous break in attempt with some tools over a set period of time. A lot of garage doors on the UK market are manufactured in Germany and they have a TUV testing certificate producing doors with equally high ratings for security. Some of the leading doors at present for security are:

Up and Over Steel Garage Doors – Garador Guardian
Electric Roller Garage Door – Seceuroglide Excel
Insulated Sectional Garage Doors – Hormann LPU40 with Bi Secur Operator
Insulated Double Skinned Hinged Garage Doors – Carteck GSW40 with 3 point locking

Many garage doors are sold with various ‘security’ add on features but we offer garage doors where the entire garage door has been tested by the independent body to enable a certificate to be issued and a level of security recognised and approved for use with many various building projects requiring such levels of security For the majority it is just about having the peace of mind of having a garage door which has been tested and approved and will be more secure than most others.

Security Entrance Door Range

Samson offer various very high quality front entrance doors from market leaders Hormann and Garador as well as a range of entrance doors purely designed for security and strength.
The Hormann ThermoPro, ThermoSafe and ThermoCarbon not only offer some of the very highest levels of insulation in any front entrance for the security levels are exceptional with multi point locking as standard. Higher levels of security are possible as well as increased levels of security through the use of bio metric access controls and other controls to ensure the home owner is the only person locking and unlocking the door.

A new range of extra high security rated entrance doors are being installed into our showroom as we write this blog. These doors will offer ratings right up to a ballistic rated door (bulletproof) and the range is all bespoke meaning you can literally have any design you want with a fully finished panel and sub frame.
