Wood Door Hardening

What Is Wood Door Hardening?

Wood door hardening is reinforcing various parts and components of the door, including installing additional hardware, to ensure immunity to kick-ins and decrease susceptibility to a variety of other break-in methods.

For wood doors we recommend installing solid-core doors with 18" or larger strike plates, a minimum of three hinges that are 4" x 4" or larger, 3.5" #9 screws for the strike plate and hinges, a full door length latch guards, a grade 1 deadbolt, and a grade 1 door closer.

The solid core wood doors are stronger than hollow core doors. They are, actually, stronger than most residential grade sheet metal doors.
