And it is also an alarming trend in Europe. The illegal occupation of private property is unfortunately a growing phenomenon.
It mainly affects big cities, although this type of crime spreads throughout Spain and South Europe (residential, rural, industrial, etc.).
The type of properties most wanted by "squatters" are real estates belonging to banks, buildings under construction, houses for sale or rent, second homes, rural houses, etc.
To prevent these illegal occupations, armored doors appear as a very safe and an increasingly popular measure.
These are the only doors, with strong doors, that have reliable strength and locks. They offer much higher security levels than standard entry doors. Our armored doors also have advanced locking systems resistant to the usual methods of criminals, such as the bumping method.
In addition to their great resistance to break-ins, they can be mawith a fireproof finish. This feature also makes them a firebreak that helps fight the spread of a fire. Inside a property they can be used to separate or create isolated areas from the rest, preventing the spread of fire to protected or sensitive areas, such as an engine room or kitchen. The aesthetic aspect is another customizable finish of our armored doors, since their design can be adapted to the one indicated by the customer, being the most requested wood coating.
