Garador steel front doors are produced in an ultra-modern manufacturing facility in Germany. They are strong and have very good insulation values. Steel front doors give the look of aluminium front doors but at a much lower cost.

The window is double glazed and the glazing surround is composite. The extruded aluminium frame has a built in thermal break to improve insulation.

As standard the Garador FGS 020 comes with a 5 point security system. This comprises of: soft locking latch, locking rod, shoot bolts, hook bolts and hinge pins. There is also the option to upgrade to the RC 2 security standard. RC 2 stands for Burglar Resistance Class 2 and as a Europe wide recognised standard. The certification states that the door has been tested to withstand an attack from burglary tools such as pliers, screwdrivers, spanners etc.
