How Secure are UltraSlim Slide & Turn Doors?
SunSeeker UltraSlim slide and turn doors are secure. A client recently contacted us regarding an attempted break-in, providing evidence of the failed attempt via the patio doors.
“Unfortunately, last night, burglars tried to break into the property and used these doors as a potential point of access. The doors didn’t give in but substantial damage has been caused to the opening leaf as you can see in the attached images.”
In 2018, we installed a set of slide-pivot doors in South-West London. In March 2020, burglars tried to break into the property and used these doors as a potential point of access. The doors didn’t yield, although sufficient damage was caused to the main traffic door, which needed to be replaced.
As with the UltraSlim door concept, the locking mechanism is proprietary – we are the designers & manufacturers of the whole system.
At the risk of helping our competitors (or professional burglars) improve, we’d like to help potential clients with their decision making. Knowing how the secure lock mechanism is designed to work may be useful and interesting.
When the main door lock lever is turned. the whole height of the lock is moved against the first door panel. This squeezes all the other doors together. All door panels have a male-female interlock which secures all panels against each other. It is a very unique locking system, which most intruders could not guess. Even if they read this, it would be very difficult to attack the panels or locking mechanism. Breaking the kite-marked, double glazed glass unit is not only difficult but will be noisy. It can also be dangerous, as intruders may be injured by broken glass, leaving blood and DNA at the crime scene.
