Our PROTECTION PLUS® door and door frame rein­force­ment instal­la­tions and patio door secu­ri­ty options can be just what you need to keep intrud­ers out. Let our secu­ri­ty experts offer addi­tion­al secu­ri­ty to pro­tect you and your prop­er­ty.

What is Door Reinforcement & Door Frame Reinforcement?

There are sev­er­al types of door rein­force­ment prod­ucts the PROTECTION PLUS® team offers, includ­ing:

  • Safe Door Sys­tems: The Safe Door Sys­tem rein­forces your doors, frames, and locks, offer­ing ten times as much strength against forced entry than a lock alone. This sys­tem is affixed to the edge of the door to pre­vent the lock from giv­ing should some­one try to kick the door to gain access.
  • Door Guardian: The Door Guardian is designed to work on inward swing­ing exte­ri­or doors, includ­ing French or gar­den-style patio doors. This unique lock is hinged and affixed to the frame of the door. It makes it almost impos­si­ble to pry the door open or access the home through forced entry while offer­ing a “child­proof” secu­ri­ty lock to keep kids safe inside. Affixed with three-inch screws, the Guardian is secured into the door jamb studs for extra stur­dy pro­tec­tion.
  • Win­dow Guardian: The Win­dow Guardian fea­tures a new, patent­ed lock design using a remov­able “push­pin” to keep the win­dow in place. It is strong enough to resist forced entry yet allows you to open them to let in a breeze. The pin also makes the win­dows child-proof, allow­ing you to adjust the lev­el when the win­dow is open to keep chil­dren safe­ly inside.
  • Strike Plates: Most doors have a strike plate that rein­forces your door latch and lock. How­ev­er, stan­dard strike plates are too small and installed with short screws that can’t stand up to forced entry. Our secu­ri­ty plates are longer and thick­er and installed with longer screws to secure them into the studs. As a result, you have a more robust plate to with­stand all kinds of forced entry, such as pry­ing, kick-ins, and jamb spread­ing.
  • Charley Bar: The “Charley Bar” is designed for slid­ing glass doors. They sit on the track, mak­ing it impos­si­ble to force the door to slide open. They can also be placed high­er up to pro­vide a visu­al deter­rent to intrud­ers.
  • Dou­ble-Bolt Lock: The PROTECTION PLUS Dou­ble-Bolt Lock makes it vir­tu­al­ly impos­si­ble to lift a slid­ing glass door off its track. It can be used as a sec­ondary or pri­ma­ry lock­ing sys­tem mount­ed above the orig­i­nal door lock pro­vid­ing an effec­tive child-proof­ing solu­tion.

Our secu­ri­ty experts can assess your home and rec­om­mend what rein­force­ments you need to keep you safe.

Door Frame Reinforcement

Why You Need Door and Door Frame Reinforcement

Most home­own­ers are unaware their door frames are a weak link in secur­ing their homes. Door frame mate­ri­als in many new homes are not always strong enough to with­stand forced entry as they are made from low-grade wood prod­ucts such as MDF. As well, builders use stan­dard locks with infe­ri­or door strike plates that are less than 2 inch­es long and installed with stan­dard ¾‑inch screws. These lit­tle details make the strike plate extreme­ly flim­sy and bare­ly strong enough to with­stand even a slight jolt.

At PROTECTION PLUS®, we offer door rein­force­ments that sub­stan­tial­ly improve the strength and integri­ty of your door, door frame, and locks. Bur­glars can enter a sur­pris­ing num­ber of homes with noth­ing more than a quick kick or bar to pry open the door or rip off the small strike plate.

Our lock experts and lock­smiths pro­vide effec­tive upgrades that offer even more strength than invest­ing in an entire front door replace­ment. We over­come all the inher­ent weak­ness­es of the door frame not addressed by a new door instal­la­tion. Using longer, stronger screws insert­ed direct­ly into the studs is the only way to improve door frame strength to pro­tect you and your fam­i­ly from intrud­ers.
