Armortex has introduced a bullet-resistant wood veneered door and hollow metal frame developed to provide an aesthetically pleasing bullet-resistant barrier for interior applications.
The frame has been constructed with cold-rolled steel prime painted steel, which is initially cut, then broken, and finally welded to size.
The frames also contain a composite armor that is installed to fulfill ballistic protection level. Armortex’s doors feature a fiberglass armor core with particle board and are veneered, including edge molding and door skins.
Ballistic level 1 through 3 measures a nominal 1¾ inches in thickness, and ballistic level 4 through 8 measures a nominal 2 inches in thickness.
Armortex’s wood door assembly exits the factory swinging on its frame utilizing heavy-duty clear anodized aluminum continuous gear hinge developed for mortise lockset, cylinder, or exit device.
