Security Doors

Type: physical threat prevention security

Doors are a common way of controlling physical access into and around any building, however when the building contains valuable network equipment security doors are a positive step toward physical security. Security doors are usually constructed out of a solid wood door with steel sheet covering and employ multiple locks and locking door hinges to prevent forceful entry. Although security doors seem like a simple implementation of basic security by turning a doorway into an impassable location, rooms within a building can be separated from staff or intruders.

Security doors are designed to withstand a sustained attack for a considerable length of time. LPBC standards are used to grade security doors between 1 and 4, the following are examples of how resistant each grade of door is:

Grade 4 doors are the most secure doors capable of withstanding a heavy attack for a considerable length of time; only the most determined attacks could penetrate it. In attacking such a door the attackers would likely make considerable noise and take a long time to penetrate the door, this is exactly what attackers do not want to do as the more noise and longer an attack, the more chance of detection and ultimately failure.

Security Door

Security doors provide another advantage in physical security; all security doors are exceptional when it comes to resisting fire. In the event of a fire in the building a security door can resist fire for much longer than a standard door, this provides a longer time to extinguish the fire before the fire spreads to critical areas of the computer network.
