Door security to keep out uninvited guests

To protect your door and this way your home and family against burglary you should invest in the security of your door. With an additional door lock and the basic elements you increase your safety effectively.

Basic fittings plus door lock

The basic fittings for any entrance door include tested security strike plates with wall anchors, strong mortise locks, sturdy door fittings with pulling protection and door cylinders with a security card.
