Here at Residential Building Specialties, Inc., we know that security is a big concern when it comes to constructing a new building. When discussing security with your clients, they most likely tend to focus on high-tech solutions like cameras, sensors, and access control systems. However, many people don’t give much thought to their door hardware, which is a mistake in our opinion. In this article, we’ll go over some of the reasons why door hardware is a critical factor in security, so that you can be sure to make the best choices for your clients.

Even the most advanced security system can be rendered ineffective if the doors have the wrong hardware—for example, an access control system is no good to anyone if intruders can simply force the door open. Door hardware components like hinges, locks, and closers are all key components in maintaining proper security. First, you need to make sure that the components you select are durable enough to stand up to heavy use, as wear and tear can cause them to shift out of alignment, which then kicks off a cascade of damage to other parts that will make the door easier to force.  Here at RBS, you can find the durable, high-quality door hardware that your clients need in order to maintain security and peace of mind.
