The German global market leader, renowned for their extensive high-speed door portfolio, has extended the range to include a security solution that meets the requirements of Burglar Resistance Class 4 (RC4). The EFA-SST®-Secure model is part of the EFAPROTECT series, which specialises in burglar-resistant door systems, and tested to withstand an attack by experienced perpetrators using heavy tools including electric drilling equipment.
Whether you want to protect valuable art objects in museums, monetary values or safeguard people, the new EFAFLEX high-speed door secures everything that is worth protecting from a potential risk or threat. It is a completely new development engineered by the innovation-driven company. New components have been used to increase the security levels including a new door lath, rollers and a hinge chain. When the door reaches the closing position, it automatically locks, and cannot be opened from the outside even when subjected to extreme force. The EFA-SST®-Secure is capable of withstanding a maximum lever force of 10,000 Newton and is designed for an attack being carried out from outside conducted by experienced perpetrators using extreme brutality.
The door has a maximum opening speed of 1.0 m/s, and closing at 0.6 m/s. "In security-relevant areas, the operating speed of the door plays a vital role, where every second counts", says Project Manager Klaus Manlig. "With these high speeds combined with the trademark EFAFLEX quality engineering that the new door achieves, it is ideal for use in these sensitive zones". EFA-SST®-Secure is designed for approximately 250,000 operating cycles per year. The security door is manufactured to within a millimetre to match customer’s specifications and is extremely quiet, reliable and operates almost wear-free. Klaus Manlig emphasizes another advantage of the door: "The EFA-SST®-Secure can be used to meet the strictest requirements of security concepts such as the resistance class WK4: a unique benefit that is only available from EFAFLEX. We are delighted to be able to offer an exclusive high-speed door with this level of certification which has taken a period of almost three years to research, refine and develop”.
In 2016, EFAFLEX started the development of the burglar-resistant door systems, which are available in the EFAPROTECT series and are a result of over 40 years industry experience. Several high-speed doors certified according to DIN EN 1627, resistance class 2 (WK2), are already in the portfolio, with no other door manufacturer able to offer such an extensive range. The security experts have developed door solutions for situations where the protection of life, valuables or data is the top priority, whether that is for companies, banks, police buildings, government or military facilities: The EFAPROTECT Series protects with individual security solutions.
