Door Frame Reinforcement

Door Frame Reinforcement

Door frame reinforcement has become a major issue for builders and remodelers as forced entry crimes continue to escalate. Locks alone cannot keep intruders from forcibly entering a home's entry doors. Doors and locks have greatly improved over the years; however, very little has been done to strengthen wooden door frames by adding effective door jamb reinforcement, as most jambs are made of soft pine wood which easily breaks. In order to correct the problem, some type of effective door frame reinforcement must be added, and there is no better door frame reinforcement than the patented KIKGARD Shield.

Door Frame Reinforcement

What breaks during hurricane winds or from criminal invasion is the small ˝ inch of wood on the doorjamb where the deadbolt throw enters the strike plate to lock the door, the common use of flat plates [regardless of the length of screws] or single flange devices is not the answer to effective door frame reinforcement. These products are only as strong as the screws which hold them on, basically acting as ineffective washers around the screws – still leaving the same ˝ inch of soft doorjamb wood unprotected – to be easily broken with one swift blow.
