Mark's Lock and Safe is definitely the place to contact when it comes to the business of securing goods and valuables. There is no fooling around when it comes to burglary and fire. I have seen the results of both in my time and I know what ideas and products can be put in place.
Since my last blog, a couple of jobs I looked after had reminded me how much fortification was a thrilling aspect of the business. I really do enjoy 'beefing' things up. Customizing or finding the right fit for the need. Recently our company supplied and installed a vault door for a customer that wanted some serious security. I had to take some pictures to show what this job looked like. I'm very proud to know that this customer has a quality product installed properly.
This door is Canadian made and is burglar and fire resistant built into a 10" concrete wall. The whole job went as planned and I know it will be there 100 years from now.
Here is another example of fortification.
I was called out to an institution that had a door problem. Someone had been ramming themselves and applying much force to a steel door at night. The frame was starting to show damage and the door was starting to bow. There was also a small window made of Lexan giving way to repeated blows. A few more attacks away from a breach and the cost of replacing the door and frame.
I love these calls because the door was salvageable. Some custom fortification was in order. The frame and bottom of the door had an extra quarter inch of steel plate added and bolted to prevent further bending. The window frame was attached a little firmer by way of carriage bolts. I feel real good about this one. It will stand up to a good beating for quite some time.
