Bitcon Security Doors consist of the Anti-Bandit, Polar® and Hippo® doors, each designed to fulfill a specific security function. The doors comprise a reinforced bullet resistant core to suit the security application with a veneer or steel finish, stainless steel channel surround and a stainless steel stile to the leading edge of the door to limit access to the locking mechanism.

ANTI-BANDIT DOOR

The Anti-Bandit door is designed to protect personnel and equipment vulnerable to small armed attacks and fulfill the requirements of the SABS Test Standard 1658-1996 for the weapons and ammunition detailed overleaf. Applications include offices, banking halls, internal doors of private residences and embassies. The Anti-Bandit door also has a 105 minute fire rating.

POLAR® & HIPPO® DOORS

The Polar® and Hippo® doors are designed for external and internal use to protect personnel and equipment in high security areas. These doors fulfill the requirements of the SABS Test Standard 1658-1996 for the weapons and ammunition detailed overleaf. Typical applications include: Access doors to control buildings, power stations, substations, embassies, diplomatic residences and financial institutions.

DOOR FINISHES

Veneered plywood with stainless steel channel surround.

FRAMES

The frames are pressed from 3mm steel sheet or galvanised sheet fully welded and formed to a double rebated profile with a 54mm x 20mm rebate.

HINGES

The doors are fitted to the frame with a heavy duty continuous gear hinge, which eliminates the gap between the door and frame, preventing the door from been pried open or removed.

VIEWING PANELS (Optional / Extra)

A viewing panel consisting of a 200mm x 300mm bullet-resistant glass with a stainless steel frame surround can be fitted. Viewing panels may only be fitted to Anti-Bandit (38mm) and Polar doors (53mm). The design of the frame surround is such that the frame cannot be unscrewed from the attack side of the door.

Viewing panels may only be fitted to Anti-Bandit and Polar Doors®.

IRONMONGERY

The doors are fitted with a single or double (depending on requirements) security lock with key operation externally, and thumb turn release internally. 300mm pull handles are fitted to both sides of the door.

METAL INSERTS

A metal insert has been built-in to accommodate door closers. Pilot holes must be drilled into this plate and closers fitted with self tapping screws.

INSTALLATION

The door and frame unit must be installed square true and plumb with the door in the closed position. The bottom leading edge or the door must be wedged to support the vertical load of the door on the frame. The wedge should not be removed until the brickwork is satisfactory cured.
