How It’s made
Cerberus Security Doors aren’t just making high specification steel security doors, we are making beautiful ones. We believe there is no need to compromise on design or security, which is why, using the latest technology, machinery and engineering innovations, we can build doors with flawless operation to match a design of your choice, or create something completely bespoke. Alternatively, Cerberus Doors can even build our high security doors to be complimentary to a buildings’ architecture, utilising a relevant Victorian, Georgian, or Edwardian design, for example, but with the advantage of an engineered steel construction, you benefit from a much more timeless and sturdy door.
If you want something cutting edge, we can create contemporary and modern to compliment your personal style. All doors, no matter the style, are exceptionally thermally efficent and soundproof. (Our steel security doors are often fitted on apartments and houses of all costs and styles) as front entrance doors, back doors, internally, or even for a panic room or vault rooms. We also have a wide range or secure patio doors which utilise our triple laminated security glazing.
Our High Security Doors doors combine an innovative mix of manufacturing and engineering techniques through utilisation of high end innovative CNC machinery and craftsmanship. Every door contains a refined process of building, welding, machine engineering, and hand finishing. Every material is carefully selected for it’s qualities in building the ultimate luxury door, for example; we use Medite Tricoya, a revolutionary MDF which is extremely durable and weather resistant for our cladding and detailing, ensuring the detailing on our doors stand the test of time.
