A Kickstop FrameGuard is used to reinforce and strengthen a wooden door frame around the striking plate of a mortice deadlock or sashlock.
Fitting a mortice lock involves removing wood and this leaves a very weakened area around the frame. The Frame Reinforcer plates are bolted together through the door frame - to resist a 'kick-in' attack and forced entry and so help avoid a burglary.
The FrameGuard is available in four sizes, five polyester powder coated architectural finishes and two polished and plated finishes.
All Kickstop FrameGuards offer superior protection and resistance against kick-in attacks and forced entry.
FrameGuards can also be fitted to strengthen the frame around the hinges. Fitting a FrameGuard around the hinge is relatively difficult to do without removing the door. A very much easier to fit option would be HingeGuard Plates or a Birmingham Bar.
Supplied with security bolts and fitting instructions.
