For assured protection on your Mississauga property, you can count on Remac Door & Hardware’s high security openings and top-notch services. Hardening an opening, so that it provides true high security capabilities, involves upgrading all elements of the openings including frames, doors and hardware. High security frames will typically be installed in masonry walls or steel-reinforced walls that require the appropriate anchoring.
The frames can be upgraded from the typical 16 Ga to 14 Ga material and should always be welded properly. Hardware preparations for the high security hardware also need to be provided, and electric strikes, heavyweight hinges, multi-point locks and Grade 1 hardware are all common elements that need to be taken into account.
High security doors typically require 16 Ga doors, often with steel stiffeners and weld seam edges. Again, the high security hardware being used needs to be accommodated with the required preparations and material can be upgraded to 14 Ga. If liters are installed, appropriate lite kits and glass should always be used.
High security hardware typically means heavy-duty hinges, Grade 1 lock systems or multi-point lock systems. Often, mortise locks or exit devices are used. Electrified hardware is another common element of high security openings. Electric strikes, electrified locks and electrified exit devices are often used to integrate with access control systems so that card readers, bio scanners or proximity readers can be used to control access.
Latch monitoring options, door contacts and request to exit functions are other common features of the electrified hardware being used. These allow security personnel or systems to monitor the status of an opening and to make sure it is secure. Finally, secure key systems are available from many manufacturers and can be used in most Grade 1 hardware via industry-standard removable core systems. This allows a Medeco key system to be installed in a Schlage L series mortise lock as an example. There are many options available for high security key systems. However, all involve controlled access to key blanks that are specific to the system installed.
From our inventory, you can also choose specialty products for openings requiring ballistic ratings (bullet proof) or blast ratings. These are very expensive assemblies rated by the manufacturer and usually involve very long lead times and highly customized solutions.
