Security doors


Teckentrup security doors

For decades, Teckentrup has offered its customers a large selection of tried-and-tested, burglar-resistant security doors that have been certified by the relevant authorities. Teckentrup security doors can be used in both private as well as industrial and commercial environments. The security elements of a burglar-resistant door are hardly noticeable from the outside. This means that a security door can be produced in all common materials such as wood, plastic or metal, as well as different variants such as those with glazing.

Security doors for residence, Basement and Company buildings

The use of security doors is wide-ranging, reaching from home basement doors to securing IT rooms, to super market exit doors, all the way to highly secure areas in psychiatric wards and police stations. Prison cell doors are a special design used in correctional facilities. In this way, Teckentrup basement security doors used for a residence, for example, provide strong resistance with their efficient lock mechanisms like the multi-locking system, bolt-secured hinges, security profile cylinders with anti-drilling and removal protection, as well as security levers, all of which quickly drives the burglar off. Burglar-resistant doors prevent break-ins in which the burglar attempts to force entry into a building using a tool and/or physical force. They can be installed into masonry as well as concrete and autoclaved aerated concrete.

A break-in at home or to company premises is a life-changing experience for everyone. Not only because this significantly affects one’s own privacy, but because break-ins to company buildings can result in stolen documents or material. An alarm system and solid lock are often not enough to prevent a burglar from getting into a building. The door leaf and an obsolete door frame are often the weak points that the burglar quickly surpasses.

RC3, RC4 or RC6 security doors?

Side and basement entrances to private homes which are difficult to see are preferred by burglars because they can infiltrate the building undisturbed. But commercial buildings, such as offices and warehouses, are also not safe from burglar and should be protected accordingly. We therefore recommend installing a security door in order to achieve effective protection against break-ins.

Security doors are divided into 6 different resistance classifications: RC1 to RC6, (RC = resistance class, formerly WK1, WK2, WK3, WK4, WK5, WK6). RC6 designates the highest resistance classification. For residences, resistance classifications RC2 to RC3 are normally sufficient. Resistance classification RC3 is recommended for normal office buildings. Of course, a higher resistance classification is also possible. Professional advice, for example from police information centres, provides information on the necessity of additional special equipment such as alarms or panic locks. Since 1.02.2010, the outside door standard DIN EN 14351-1 is binding. For this reason, all security doors for outside use receive the CE-mark. In addition, a certificate of conformity is attached to the doors, which contains information about the product's performance data.

More information on Teckentrup basement security doors and other Teckentrup security doors can be found in our catalogue as well as on the individual product pages.

Hotel Radisson Red Cape Town

Radisson Red, Cape Town

Tourism booms worldwide, especially in popular destinations. New hotels spring up everywhere like mushrooms! This can be seen on the other side of the world too: in Cape Town, at the thrilling port metropolis at the foot of Table Mountain, the Rezidor Hotel Group opened, under the new “Radisson Red” label, a high-profile 4-star hotel with a modern interior.
Elbe Philharmonic Hall

Elbe Philharmonic Hall

In a building such as the Elbe Philharmonic Hall first-class products are not only installed where they are visible and aesthetics matters but everywhere. In a concert hall with an auditorium capacity of up to 2.100 spectators the escape routes for instance require time-consuming planning. In such a superlative building interior design in every detail counts. Thus the doors are chosen due to their functionality and due to their aesthetic criteria: Fire protection and smoke protection have to be harmonised with the creative claim of a flush view.
Colditz Castle

Colditz Castle

The recently renovated 'schloss Colditz' in Saxony, Germany is a great example of how to reconcile the often conflicting demands of historic preservation and fire-protection. For example, many of the passageways have been fitted with the Teckentrup T30 all-glass doors, which combine functionality with aesthetics and maximum transparency.
