Security for Pedestrian Doors

Posted Wednesday, October 28th, 2020

When it comes to your business, you want to ensure that you have enough security to protect it. Unfortunately, there are many ways that intruders can break-in, but why not reduce the number of methods by takings some precautions. We have some options when it comes to extra security for your pedestrian doors.

The gap between the door and the frame is one of the weakest points, especially if the gap is wide enough to make the bolt visible from the exterior. Latch guards are metal plates that cover exposed latches and keep them from being tampered with. Latch guard plates are typically made out of heavy gauge steel or stainless steel, so you can be sure they aren’t easy to bend or cut. Latch guards help protect your latches from burglars prying tools such as a crowbar. Most latch guards are commonly used on commercial property and multi-unit buildings. When a latch guard is installed over your existing latch, it forces the burglar to pry further away from the latch, often leaving them locked out. Latch guards can be installed on either inward-swinging or outward-swinging doors.
