ASSA ABLOY brands unveil forced entry bullet resistant door assemblies

ASSA ABLOY hollow metal door brands Ceco Door, Curries, and Fleming, have introduced Forced Entry Bullet Resistant Assemblies (FEBR) to resist intruder attack.

The door, frame and hardware assembly has the capacity to combat mob-attack for as long as 15 minutes and has the capacity of level 8 bullet resistance protecting the inmates of the room.

ASSA ABLOY Door Group specialty products director Howard Schrier said: "Securing military and government buildings, embassies, banks, control, data and safe rooms takes a specialised approach in how we build openings.

"When developing the Forced Entry Bullet Resistant Assembly, we followed stringent US Department of State security requirements, designed unique structural features into the doors and frames, then built them using only top quality components for extreme strength and durability."

The FEBR door assembly features UL752 Level 8 bullet resistant extra heavy duty door with continuous welded vertical edge seams with UL752 Level 8 bullet resistant fully-welded extra heavy duty frame. Its factory-installed hardware aids in operation and functionality.

It is also fitted with an FEBR 3-point locking exit device and Pemko stainless steel continuous hinge with security studs and a stainless steel threshold.

During an independent testing, the door assembly has demonstrated efficacy in resisting impacts of 5.56 M 193, 5.56 M855 and 7.62 M80 ballistic rounds thereby satisfying the US government, military, and embassy life-safety and security objectives.

The product comes with a five-year warranty.
