Bullet iconBullet Resistant Doors

Ballistic Doors are an essential part of any high security installation for the protection of people, property or assets.  Architectural Armour design and manufacture, within the UK, a range of fully tested and certified ballistic security doors to offer protection from 9mm handguns up to 7.62mm armour piercing rounds.  Our Bullet Resistant/Ballistic doors are available in timber, steel or glazed designs.  All can be manufactured to comply with either European EN 1522 and or American NIJ 0108.01 test standards.

Bespoke Manufactured

Very few doors have the  same size, hanging and locking requirements, in over 30 years of manufacture we seldom have the luxury of making the same door twice.  Typically the steel and glazed doors are drawn and 3D modelled in Solidworks so that the component materials can be laser cut and folded on the CNC machines before fabrication, welding, fettling, phoswash, powder coating then assembly and testing.

Timber Doors 

Bullet resistant doors do not have to be steel or industrial looking, by positioning the armour either side of a timber core then facing with either a paint or veneer then lipping we can achieve almost any desired design.  In London we are often asked to match existing door designs in bullet resistant versions, with raised and fielded panels and other historical details. We offer Ballistic Timber Finish Doors in the following EN 1522/3 specifications;

EN 1522 FB2                  9mm Luger

Steel Doors 

Steel Ballistic doors are more durable and can perform better than glass or timber in hostile environments.  Available to meet both handgun and rifle specifications Architectural Armour utilise the latest manufacturing techniques, after 3D modelling we laser cut components, fold and shape them on CNC presses to achieve greater accuracy to ensure all components fit together for the welders to join them together.  With the choice to site the ballistic steel within the door skins the in house powder coating facility can produce a great finish to each door set.  We offer Ballistic Steel  Doors in the below  EN 1522/3 specification.

EN 1522/3 certified doors are tested with basic panel shots and require additional multiple shots to hinges, frame, rebates and cylinders.  As seen from the image over 20 shots are administered to the frames to ensure it achieves the ballistic criteria.  Whilst our doors are not UL 752 listed, many have been tested in the UK to meet the ballistic requirements of the standard.  Within the testing parameters we include shots from 7.62 x 39mm AK47 rounds due to their worldwide proliferation.
