FBI burglary statistics show that 65% of home break-ins occur by forcing in one of the entry doors on a home. And one of the weakest points of most entry doors is the area around the door strike and deadbolt. Several forceful kicks in this area can break away the door frame or damage the door panel and/or the lock so the door can be opened. For most doors there is only one lock area.
On all Groke entry doors a multi-point locking system is used to secure the door along the full edge of the door. A hook type lock is used at the top and bottom while the door strike and deadbolt secures the center area of the system. Groke also uses two stainless steel bolt locks on the hinge side of the door to prevent anyone from leveraging the door off of the European style pin hinges. These bolt locks working in concert with the hinges that are rated at 350 lbs. of force per hinge provides total coverage around the full perimeter of the door.
The frame of your door system can jeopardize the security of your home as well. Most door frames are constructed of wood and in some cases provide less than 1” of thickness. If there is no reinforcement where the locks go through the wood frame one kick can allow access to the home.
Groke doors are manufactured using only multi-chambered aluminum extrusions to create the door and frame. The 3mm wall thickness of this aluminum frame design provides strength for the multi-point locking system while also giving the overall door system stability and total resistance to most all types of abuse.
When considering the overall security of your home, it is helpful to understand that your entry door is no better than its weakest point.
Groke offers very secure entry doors with the most modern door designs.
