You’ve heard the phrase, “a chain is only as strong as its weakest link,” haven’t you? Of course, you have. And it makes sense, because when all the links have to hang together under a burden, if one gives out, they all give out, and the chain snaps. What most people don’t realize, though, is that if you have a security door, the same logic applies.
Because you could have the roughest, toughest, most durable security door on the market. But if the hardware holding it in place isn’t up to the same grade, then that door isn’t going to provide the protection you think it will.
Does Your Security Door Have Weak Points?
While the door is the most visible part of your security, it’s far from the only part. Everything from the hinges, to the strike plate, to the deadbolt, to the door frame all have their part to play when it comes to your security. And if even one of those pieces is found lacking, it could be a fatal flaw in your door when it comes time to keep people out.
Quality Door lists several potential weaknesses your hardware could create, but it all comes down to one, simple question; can your hardware be compromised while leaving the door intact? Because if your hinges can be snapped, if your frame can be kicked out, or if your strike plate leaves wiggle room that can compromise the door, then no matter how intimidating it might look, it isn’t providing you with that much security.
