Typical Door Construction Offers Little Protection!
The problem is a major design flaw, found on virtually every residential
interior and exterior door. Most door hinges, deadbolts and door locks are rather strong.
It is the WOODEN DOOR FRAME, also known as the door jamb, that is the weak link.
Door jambs are most often constructed from softwood such as Pine.
These soft woods cannot withstand the pressure of a solid steel deadbolt or lock being forced into to the jamb when a door is either kicked or rammed into.
When the Door BrakeTM in frictionally engaged with the flooring surface, the force generated by the intruder is dissipated and transferred to stronger portions of the door assembly. This is one of the reasons why the revolutionary new Door BrakeTM stands apart from all other supplemental door security options.
