Why Your Business Needs Steel Security Doors

Steel security doors are among the most cost-effective and practical investments you can make for your business. Steel is a lightweight, durable material that won’t stretch your budget thanks to its relative prevalence, making it a great choice to safeguard your most important assets. Meanwhile, security doors can provide you with a multitude of additional benefits to keep your confidence high and your losses low. In this article, we’ll explore the top reasons you’d want to install some secure steel doors on your property. You’ll quickly discover that the advantages extend far beyond basic security!


The Benefits of Steel Security Doors


Enhanced Security

The most obvious benefit of security doors is the additional safety that they provide for you, your staff and your property. External steel security doors and frames are designed for protection and peace of mind, and are usually installed alongside advanced access control systems, designed to meet your specifications for controlling access. This customisation can extend to the windows, handles and hinges used, making them a top choice for businesses. Here at FSM, we ensure that your security doors will be compliant with SBD (Secured by Design) accreditation to PAS24 standard.


Exceptional Durability

Unlike common exterior door materials like timber, uPVC, or fiberglass that can easily break under pressure, steel offers a combination of affordability and durability. Steel doors resist cracking and remain resilient even when subjected to excessive force.


Fire Resistance

Steel doors don’t just protect against break-ins; they also play a crucial role in containing and preventing the spread of fires, both internal and external. Heavy duty steel security doors and steel fire doors ensure compliance with regulations and a controlled environment during fire emergencies.


Sound Insulation

For businesses sensitive to noise, external steel security doors help prevent noise pollution in surrounding areas, while internal security doors can isolate and direct noise to prevent office employees from being affected.


Low Maintenance

Old-fashioned timber doors require regular sanding, painting and staining, but steel security doors don’t require any of this, saving you both time and money in the long run.


Aesthetic Appeal

A heavy-duty steel door can provide a striking aesthetic appeal that marries functionality with a clean, angular look. Security doors look especially great when they are integrated seamlessly with a building’s existing architecture. For example, if you’ve got a particular idea in mind for decorative panels and doors to accompany your business’ products, these can be easily incorporated without compromising on security.


Insurance Savings

Installing features such as security doors on your property will often help to reduce your annual insurance bill. By showing your insurance company that you are actively improving the overall safety of your building, protecting it from theft, vandalism or property damage, you could make a substantial difference in your overhead expenses.


Compliance with Regulations

Depending on your business, installing security doors might be required by one or multiple UK regulations. This includes numerous UK building regulations and fire safety regulations, like the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. This could be especially important for public buildings and areas. Once you’re sure of your civil liabilities and responsibilities, you’ll need to think about getting some secure doors fitted – but remember that you’ll still get all the benefits we’ve mentioned so far!


Increased Property Value

Finally, investing in high-quality steel security doors can provide benefits further down the road if you decide to sell or lease your building. The additional protection, combined with the high-quality materials and aesthetic appeal of your security door, can only add additional value to your property’s portfolio, meaning you can save money while you’re still operating and make more when you’re ready to move on!
