The StrikeMaster II French and Double Door kit can stop home invasions and burglaries by effectively bracing the centre post (astragal) of the passive door. This is the primary failure point of a double door system because the weak shoot bolts at the top and bottom of the astragal must withstand the most energy when kicked or pried. In addition to this brace, named the French Door Lock, the remaining vulnerabilities at the lockset and the hinge areas are also addressed.
In the lockset area, the soft wooden astragal is reinforced with a patent pending, heavy-duty, 20” double steel strike plate, which is secured using 4 case hardened 1.5“ screws that penetrate deep into astragal in order to distribute the energy of a forced entry. The active door is secured using the patent pending Door Edge Pro door reinforcer, which strengthens the door to prevent breaking and splitting.
In the hinge area, weak standard hinge screws are replaced by a total of 24 case hardened screws (12 on the door frame and 6 on each door), which penetrate deep into the wall studs and into the doors themselves in order to secure the hinges.
The StrikeMaster II French and Double Door kit is easy to install and can be used to repair and strengthen already broken doors and door frames.
