Panic room doors create the entrance to a secure room. However, this does not have to be an ugly space. Markedly our doors look as good as they perform. Thus being secure and luxurious.
Generally people don’t have specific panic rooms. Rather typical residential spaces that are more secure than the rest of the house. For instance the master bedroom. After all, this cuts out the time it takes to get to another room during a break-in.
A panic room door is a secure internal door. Moreover it creates a safe space in the event of a break-in. Our preferred door is Oikos Project. Specifically designed as an internal use security door. Oikos have a vast range of finishes to choose from. As well as the ability to match or create custom finishes. In addition to the aesthetic qualities, Oikos doors have strong security credentials. Class 3 as standard, enough to hold off a determined intruder.
Another key point of Oikos Project is electronic locking. Due to the popularity of home automation, this is a common option. Also, it has the great advantage of fully locking the door whenever it’s closed. Additionally, operation can be via finger print, key card or smartphone. All programmable with Oikos Arkey smartphone app.
Fire rated versions of panic room doors are possible. Because often they are required for building regulations. Or, sometimes they are chosen purely for piece of mind.
Particularly important is panic room doors can match your other general doors. Furthermore if you are buying Garofoli doors from us, Garofoli will make the faces to suit the panic door. Without doubt this gives great continuity. Alternatively Oikos can match your existing doors.
