It is even more important that your back door is in good shape precisely because it is used less often and doesn’t have the same inherent deterrents as your front door. Often opening onto an alley or parking lot, your back door is more vulnerable to break-ins. Now is a good time to conduct a visual inspection of your back door to make sure it closes tightly without a lot of play in the hinges or gaps that can be used to pry the door open. If your door doesn’t fit tightly in the jam, is 15-20 years old, or doesn’t lock securely, it’s time to replace it.
In addition to commercial grade security doors, Metro Alarm & Lock also repairs and installs fire-rated doors. A properly functioning fire door allows safe exiting in the event of a fire, while protecting your employees, visitors, and property from smoke and fire spreading to different areas of the building.
We offer various fire doors with labels ranging from 20 minutes up to three hours. And all fire doors, standard frames, as well as drywall frames, have been tested and listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).
If you have a door that needs repair or replacement, call Metro Alarm & Lock. Our qualified technicians have been fixing and installing commercial doors for more than 40 years.
