Did you know that in specialist security tests by Consumer Reports Magazine during the 1990s, it was found that most doors fail or simply delaminate when a small amount of force is applied to them?
Solid wooden doors withstand some force but it is steel doors that perform much better under rigorous testing, with steel edged doors outperforming the equivalent wood-edged doors by a ratio of 7 to 1.
When you consider the practically, two-thirds of all illegal entries were made through doors that were not suited to protecting the premises.
We have learned that in 87% of the break-ins that occurred when intruders defeated locked doors with tools such as screwdrivers or crowbars, the burglars usually target the most hidden door and the weakest. Burglars aren’t stupid. Small businesses are often a target for break ins. Whether opportunistic smash and grab, or a cool and calculated, and planned attempt to swipe particular items of value, it is never nice to be the subject of a burglary. The implications can be deep and hard hitting.
